Award of Excellence, 2006–2010, for The Dining Room at Inn on Biltmore Estate
"Inn on Biltmore Estate: On 8,000 acres adjacent to Biltmore House, George Vanderbilt's 19th-century chateau. Competitive Edge: Next best thing to a European vacation (formal gardens, on-site winery). Don't Miss: The off-road Land Rover driving school."
Travel + Leisure, 2006
"Some grounds! 8,000 acres of field and stream surround George Vanderbilt's 1895 Biltmore mansion. Kid magnet: the on-site River Bend Farm, which re-creates rural life in the 1890's."
Travel + Leisure, 2007
"Sip wine and watch the sun set behind the Blue Ridge Mountains from a rocker on the porch of this fieldstone and stucco hotel, three hours from Charlotte. Gracious staff combines Southern hospitality with fine service. Floral rooms recall English and French manors. The main dining room serves regional cuisine around a fireplace; try the perfectly cooked trout."
Condé Nast Traveler 2006
"The food was wonderful and the staff was gracious and helpful. We do plan to come back and stay again at the inn. Thanks for a wonderful stay!"

M.G., Lawrenceburg, TN
"It has been a long time since we went anywhere and were greeted so warmly. Each person who cared for us did it with friendliness and compassion."
