Indulge in the elegance of a AAA 4-Diamond resort that's just steps from the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, N.C., for $129 per night.
At $100 a night less than comparable hotels in the area, the Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville trims the price for Sundays-Thursdays in January-February. Visit on a Friday or Saturday for $40 more per night.
The hotel, adjacent to George Vanderbilt's famous 1890s mansion and grounds, "resembles a 1920s hunting lodge -- though one decorated by an eccentric art lover," Travel + Leisure magazine says. Mounted deer heads, a fireplace, an extensive art gallery and "modern-rustic rooms" are among the details.
Dine on locally farmed dishes, such as Carolina bison rib eye, at the hotel's restaurant. The galleries, breweries and boutiques of the city's historic district are in walking distance, and the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains are about an hour away.
