Its two suites and four guest rooms have king- or queen-sized beds swathed in high-quality bedding, private bathrooms, a flat-screen TV/DVD unit, Wi-Fi and, yes, bedside chocolates. Each accommodation option has a distinctive feature such as a library, gas fireplace, balcony, bathroom skylight, rain shower head, claw-foot tub or granite countertop.

    North Lodge on Oakland is just a mile from the Biltmore Estate and downtown Asheville. With its 8,000 acres, the Biltmore Estate is almost a town onto itself and, as such, has almost as many attractions including property tours, winery, dining, shopping, carriage rides, biking, hiking, fly-fishing and horseback riding. Check out museums, galleries, performing arts centers, antique shops and restaurants in downtown Asheville. Take a scenic drive along Blue Ridge Parkway, as you head to the Blue Ridge Mountains, where, among its various outdoor offerings, you can hike to numerous waterfalls.
