Here is some info on hotels. If you want to stay south of downtown Asheville to be closer to my studio, I’d suggest staying in Arden, Biltmore Park or Biltmore Village. All of these options will put you no more than 10 miles away from the studio and have local shopping and restaurants nearby. We are nestled in the mountains in a neighborhood called Brush Creek Farms.

AirBnB Recommendation

I can recommend an adorable AirBnB I have stayed in right near the Biltmore called The Birdhouse. Its perfect for one person or two with a queen bed and a pullout sofa. Two women own it and I loved staying there.

The Birdhouse

If you’d rather be in downtown Asheville there are many good AirBnB spots and hotels like the Aloft, the AC Hotel, the Windsor and others. We like for rental homes.
