About this trip

Join Prime Tours on the 4 day/3 night retreat to the Billy Graham Cove in Asheville, NC. Along the way you'll spend your first night in Gatlinburg, TN with an evening free to catch a show or enjoy some shopping. 

Before arriving at the Cove you'll also enjoy a tour at the magnificent Biltmore Estate where you will see both the mansion and grounds. To design gardens and grounds as majestic as Biltmore House, George Vanderbilt hired Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American landscape design, most famous as the designer of Central Park. Today, Biltmore’s gardens and grounds are a horticultural paradise.  With 8,000 acres of indoor and outdoor beauty, you can get your steps in for the day. But leave some for touring the caste interior. 

Experience America’s Largest Home®, as magnificent today as it was more than a century ago. Your self-guided audio visit spans three floors and the basement of the luxurious family home of George and Edith Vanderbilt. Explore the stories of the Vanderbilt family, their guests, and employees through displays of vintage clothing, accessories, art, furniture, and more. 

Before checking in for your Cove Retreat, it's Chocolate time! A tour and tasting at the French Broad Chocolate Factory will get you through the afternoon. 

Then settle in for the next two days to beauty and relaxation at the Billy Graham Cove Retreat Center, nestled in the hills of Asheville, North Carolina where you will enjoy your all-inclusive stay (2 breakfasts, 2 dinners and 1 lunch).

Somehow they seemed to control and weather and we had a great time, only 1 afternoon of rain and very few clouds the rest of the time. There was always something planned for us to do and we had plenty of time to visit some parts of a museum or the gift shops that were available. At the airport with one of the owners of Prime Tours with us, we were updated with news long before other people found out anything and we didn't have to worry about anything, it was all taken care of for us. It was a very fun and full week of exciting things to experience.

We had a wonderful time. Arrangements were good and hotels were accommodating. The meals that were included were excellent. The side trips were interesting and fun. It was as good as it could be during a pandemic. Thank you for the experience.
