We did the 'Architectural Tour' with an amazing guide who simply made the experience delightful. Even though the estate itself was very busy, everything ran smoothly. The home itself is beautiful and a must-see in Asheville. We would definitely return for one of the other interesting tours.

What isn't there to love about the Biltmore. If you can't find something to enjoy here, you can't find it anywhere. Our family made the trip to enjoy the Easter activities. Our three year old participated in the morning Easter egg hunt on the front lawn, right in front of the "castle" as he calls it. Pictures with the "easter... More

We really enjoyed the visit. The house is beautiful and the gardens are amazing. We were really impressed with the knowledge of staff members so we highly recommend to ask them any questions that comes to mind. Regarding entrance fee- buying online (on the official site), in advance can get you 10-15 dollar discount so don't be lazy

During a girls weekend to Asheville my friend and I decided to splurge and do the private tour of the estate - and am I glad we did. We were treated to all the behind the scene access and history that we wanted. Each time our guide, Angel, un-hooked the velvet rope to let us pass directly into a room... More

We decided to stop at the Biltmore on our way to Hilton Head for Thanksgiving. This was our first time here and it did not disappoint. The Inn at the Biltmore is just stunning with customer service to match. When we went, the Christmas decorations were up and it was beyond beautiful. The winery is a must see as are... More

Spent 10 hours at Biltmore and could have spent another 10. The residence and support buildings are furnished with original items. One gets a good feel for life at Biltmore. Took the Butler's tour to get the view of the operation from the point of view of the staff. Fascinating! Grounds designed by F.L. Olmsted are breathtaking for the view... More

Even if you have seen it before, the Biltmore at Christmas is an experience like no other. There are decorated trees in every public room, according to the year's theme, and a festive atmosphere on the entire estate. Much of what is used is raised on the grounds. The day we went, there was even a dusting of snow, to... More

This is an amazing place. I have visited the house several times on a couple of different tours and occasions. The grounds are beautiful. The mountains are beautiful. I have eaten in a couple of the excellent restaurants. During the summer there are usually 4 wonderful outdoor concerts. The employees are all gracious and knowledgeable. This is not a place... More

We went to the Biltmore twice during our weekend trip to Asheville. (We bought our tickets through our hotel which offered 2 day admission). The first night we spent in Antler Hill with friends. Eat at Cedric's! The pickles they give you with your meal are fantastic. We also loved the farm and the winery gave us very generous samples... More

So many beautiful colors!! The greenhouse has the most usual plants and flowers and someone to answer any questions that you may have about them. When visiting... More
