What a hugely magnificent mansion. We did the self-guided tour with the headphone. Great way to see the mansion and hear all the history. You travel at your own pace - no rush.

My husband and I went to Asheville just to see this and we were not disappointed. We purchased a two day ticket in order to split the tour of the gardens and the house. The gardens were breathtaking as was the house. The tour of the gardens was about 3 hours and the house tour was about 2 hours. The... More

This place is remarkable and I would plan on seeing this estate with the gardens and the wine. The building is beautiful and the grounds are unbelievable.

A vestige of the era of the super rich, the bygone era of American royalty. The house is just beautiful and the tour is a journey back to the late 19th and early 20th century. As wonderful as the house is, the gardens and grounds are better. You can wander freely and enjoy the acres of beautifully designed Frederick Law... More

My husband, son, dog, and I just had a great time walking around the Biltmore Estate gardens. We didn't go inside the house because dogs aren't allowed inside the house, but we really enjoyed walking through 2 miles of the grounds, which included clear, easy paths through a rose garden, walled garden, and around a bass pond, over wood bridges...

Four of us spent from 9am-5pm on the estate and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! We went on July 4 which is a day which requires timed entry to the house. We bought tickets online for 9am and also pre-paid for the audio guide which was DEFINITELY worth it. The audio provided about the house and family interesting info without dragging... More

I fell in love with the Biltmore Estate decades ago, and find that whenever I need a break from the world and want to wander about an estate and grounds for a day of reflection, I come back to the Biltmore again and again. It's like a time-machine....and in the five or six times I've visited I've never felt like... More
