The grounds are lovely. The staff members are friendly. Some of the rooms, furnishings and art are interesting and beautiful. But it's a very expensive visit, and it feels as if everything is an add-on. If you've seen stately homes in Europe, you've seen everything the Biltmore has to offer. Our guides consistently got details wrong, didn't know some things... More

We've only been in NC for seven years and everyone kept telling us you have to go see the Biltmore. Well we finally did. It was awesome. Great history, lots of rooms and it was so big. We've seen the pictures but you can't appreciate it until you see it live. We've been to see the mansions in Newport RI... More

Definitely worth a visit. Traveling with my mom in a wheelchair and two teenagers. Thank god kids were free through September. Cost is a little high I would suggest you pre order tickets no problem picking them up at reservations. Through the little expensive water bottle is $3 but it said the Biltmore. Seems like they get you coming and... More

Look Ill be honest with you a Visit to Biltmore can be a bit pricey, I brought my wife, son and his wife and 3 grandchildren under 5. Allthough the kids were free it was over $200.00 just in admission. That said we had a thoroughly enjoyable time and felt the cost of admission was a great value. We are... More

The Biltmore Estate has something for everyone, making it a favorite for my family! From the house tour with its behind the scenes specials, to the fantastic shopping, to the high quality of the food and wine, and the superb outdoor activities, you will never be bored! The staff is full of information about pretty much everything and extremely kind.... More

Biltmore Estate was a great place to visit. The staff needs to be complimented for their very helpful attitude and attention to their visitors. My husband and I were having trouble negotiating the long flights of stairs. She led us to a parlor where we could view what we had missed on the 3rd floor by watching an in-house video.... More

The Biltmore Estate is a gorgeous place that never gets old. The gardens are stunning, the barn is entertaining, and the house tour is awesome (especially the candlelight tour in the winter). I wouldn't bring really young kids, but elementary age and up would also enjoy.

Biltmore Equestrian Center offers primitive camping and very large paddocks for your horses. Water is available and there is a port a potty on site. The trails are spectacular and well-marked. Many dining choices are 10 minutes away in downtown Asheville or on the estate if you prefer not to leave the grounds.

Everyone tells us that it is a fantastic place to visit, but at $59 plus tax per person (which is more expensive than going to Buckingham Palace) we decided to give it a miss.

You must visit this place! Book online in advance to save money. We were on the Estate for 9 hours! Almost 3 hours just touring the House! Spent the rest of the day looking at the gardens and Antler Village. Go to the bistro for a reasonable and tasty lunch!
