The Biltmore is known for its exquisite springtime flowers, and this spring it will become the sight of another glorious abundance of color, Chihuly at Biltmore. Beginning in May 2018, the large-scale, colorful glass sculptures created by American artist Dale Chihuly will take their place alongside the blooming flowers in the historic gardens of the Biltmore.  Chilhuly Coming to The Biltmore

Chihuly, an internationally-renowned artist, has his large-scale creations on display at more than 200 museum collections across the globe. From May 17th until October 7th, 2018, his glass sculptures will coexist with nature and be on display both day and night at the Biltmore Gardens. On its webpage, The Biltmore notes that Biltmore founder, George Vanderbilt, often highlighted works from renowned artists in his gardens. In addition, the website talks about the fascinating juxtaposition of Chihuly’s free-form art with the work of Frederick Law Olmsted, the noted Biltmore landscape designer. The exhibit marks Chihuly’s first NC garden exhibit.

This opportunity to experience a world-famous artist’s works in an historic garden marks only one of several upcoming internationally important events unfolding in the Asheville area in 2018. An earlier Greybeard blog highlighted the important upcoming International Horse Show coming to Tryon. A future blog will discuss Haute Route, an international bike race. To get info on these and other important events, please visit Greybeard’s Event page to stay up to date.

If you’re interested in coming to the area for any of these events, Greybeard Rentals hopes you will take a moment to look at our Asheville area rental cabin listings. With the advance options buttons, you will be able to use real-time filters to select the amenities that are most important to you. For example, we have numerous Asheville dog-friendly homes and rental homes with hot tubs as well. If you want to experience an Asheville log cabin, you can filter for that as well. And, of course, if you would prefer to speak to someone about finding the best rental for your needs, we welcome direct contact at Greybeard Rentals.

Staying in a rental home offers guests a chance to feel at home away from home, and, for that reason, Greybeard is very selective in the homes we list. We pride ourselves on having rental homes that we would love to stay in if we were vacationing. And we try very hard to make our guests feel right at home with special touches including an individual inspection of each rental, prior to new guests moving in, as well as our housewarming gift of a fresh-baked loaf of pumpkin bread left in each rental.  

If you’d like something special during your vacation stay with us, check out Greybeard Rentals Guest Services webpage and  take advantage of some of our special packages or find something on our a la carte list.  Vacation time is precious time, and you’ve earned it. Let Greybeard Rentals give you the Asheville holiday of a lifetime.
