February 14 is just around the corner, so it’s time to start making some plans for Cupid’s big day. Sure, candy, flowers, jewelry, and candlelight dinners are nice, but what your Valentine really wants is time with YOU!

We may be biased, but our idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day in Asheville goes something like this:

  • First, reserve a suite at The Residences at Biltmore. In addition to roomy kitchens and living rooms, many of our suites are equipped with large jetted tubs, gas fireplaces, and private balconies or patios.
  • Through the month of February, we’re offering $20 off a couples’ massage and $10 off a single massage. After booking your stay, call our concierge to schedule time with our licensed massage therapists. Your therapists will come to your suite so you won’t have to go out in the cold.
  • Share a delicious chef-prepared dinner, craft cocktails, or decadent desserts at our on-site restaurant Azalea Bar & Kitchen before spending an evening on the town. Here on a Saturday or Sunday? Take in brunch at Azalea before heading out for a winter hike in the mountains, or a day of shopping downtown.

February may be the best time of year for a visit to the Biltmore Estate. Not only are the crowds lighter, but admission prices are at their lowest. Plus, all Biltmore House tickets include FREE next-day grounds access. If strolling through a 19th-century castle and its grounds while holding hands with your significant other isn’t romantic enough, the Estate is also home to a winery where you can taste before you buy, several shops, beautiful gardens, and numerous recreational activities.
