Biltmore on the Bayous/Biltmore Pantanal
Explanation:
I'd leave it as is, since Biltmore is a hotel-chain name, not translated. 'Bayou' translates as 'pantanal' or 'lugar pantanoso'.

There is a well known tourist resort on the Bolivia-Brasil border known as El Pantanal.
Perhaps just leave it as it is?

Hope it helps.

Explanation:
creo que no se puede traducir "bayous" en Castellano.
Tienes que dejarlo asi.

Para tu información : un bayou es un tipo de pantano que se encuentra en Estados Unidos (Louisiana).
Aqui viven los "Cajuns" ( inmigrantes canadienses de origen Frances)
