Pillowed in the smoky haze of the Blue Ridge Mountains, our Holiday Inn® Asheville hotels provide easy access to the winding trails of the Pisgah Forest and the sweeping vistas of the Blue Ridge Highway.
Guests at our hotels in Asheville, North Carolina, can travel back to the era of Gilded Age millionaires on a tour of magnificent Biltmore Estate. This 250-room French chateau is the largest privately owned home in the United States. Drive along the curving sweep of the Blue Ridge Parkway to see waterfalls thundering into granite gorges. Visit Old Kentucky Home, the Victorian clapboard boardinghouse where writer Thomas Wolfe spent his childhood. Our Asheville hotels are surrounded by gorgeous national parkland. You never have far to go to find a sylvan trail for a scenic hike or a cool mountain pool for a refreshing dip. Breathe in the crisp highlands air on a trek along the famed Appalachian National Trail.
Near our Asheville hotels, guests can dine in the city’s heralded restaurants on locally produced artisanal cheeses and free-range meat or fresh fruits from mountain orchards. Wash it down with a hearty beer crafted in one of the city’s microbreweries. In fact, wood-paneled brewpubs are often the bar of choice for residents and visitors alike. Be sure to stop at homey Mast General Store, on the Biltmore Estate, for old-fashioned gifts like homemade pickles and jams. Dance to the beat at the popular Friday-night drum circle in downtown Pritchard Park, where the entertainment is free-form and the cost is free.
