Staying Local



We’re staying for 4 days, can we all get our included tickets in one day?

The included tickets are non-cumulative and unused tickets expire daily. In other words, one person can go every single day (except day of check-out), but you cannot use all of the tickets in one day.


While we understand that in most cases your group will all want to attend together, we do hope that you find the value of the one daily ticket to be beneficial! Additionally, the more activities you attend during your stay, the larger your savings will be!


Back to Top

We don’t want to go ziplining, can we have an extra pass for the Biltmore?

The included tickets are provided by our partner companies and we are unable to provide our guests with additional passes.  Additional Biltmore Estate tickets are available for purchase through Carolina Mornings. The passes that we sell provide 2-day access to the Estate for the same cost as a regular 1 day pass purchased at the gates of the Estate!


Back to Top

Why can’t I go river rafting in October?

Most of the activities involved in our Mountain Discovery Pass are seasonal and are limited in availability by our partner companies at their request. Weather plays a large role in river rafting, as you can imagine, and we cannot expect that rafting will be available any time after Sept 30th.


The Biltmore Estate is open all year round, however, with seasonal activities in constant rotation!


Back to Top

I’m coming in November and the only seasonally available activity is the Biltmore, can I have extra tickets to make up for the rafting and ziplining trips that aren’t available?

Our partner companies provide us with the included tickets that we offer to you. We are unable to offer additional tickets to any one activity. The Biltmore Estate is positively beautiful in November - we might suggest that you spend extra time exploring the grounds and restaurants!


Back to Top

We don’t want to use our MDP, can we have money off of our reservation?

The Mountain Discovery Pass is a gift given at no cost to you! It is our way of introducing you to the beauty of our amazing area, and our partner company’s way to introduce your group to their local attractions. We cannot give a discount on your reservation, but the pass will still be available for you to use in case you change your plans!


Back to Top

I have 8 people in my party so I need more than one pass for these activities.

The MDP is a gift that we give to our guests to help offset the cost of some of our area’s best activities, and is our partner company’s way to introduce your group to their local attractions. We are only able to provide one pass per day, per activity. Additional tickets are available for purchase, so please inquire!


Back to Top

Can I use my passes on the day that I check out?

Per the agreement with our partner company, your Mountain Discover Pass is not available on the day of check out.  It is, however, available on the day of check in and each day after. Guests who stay 3 or more nights often receive the most value from this exclusive pass, as it allows them to enjoy multiple attractions (sometimes multiple times!). With the extra money you’re saving on the included daily passes, it may make adding an extra night or two more accessible.


Our desire is to help you make the most of your trip to our wonderful mountains - and we sincerely hope that you enjoy each of the activities that is available during your stay!
