I love love love this place, especially at Christmas. It is decorated beautifully, I enjoy the family story, grounds are gorgeous. There is a lot to do and enjoy. The wine tour is nice, once I tried their wine, it is a family tradition of mine to get Biltmore Christmas label wines each year for our Christmas dinner. Highly recommend... More

My husband took me to Biltmore for my birthday. I had always heard/knew about it, but had never went until now. It was absolutely amazing! It was nothing what I expected. I knew it was going to be a good trip, but it was a way better experience than I thought. I was kinda wondering how much fun it would... More

What can I say, simply amazing place to spend the day! I felt the awe of American capitalism and ingenuity the minute I walked in the main entrance. To have a house with such fine detail and advancement for being built in late 19th century is inspiring. The entire property is breath taking, even in winter with light snow flurries... More

This place is just absolutely stunning. The grounds, the building, the wine is also good. And I'm not a wine drinker. They give little samples in the gift shop to help you find on that you would like. This place is full of rich history and amazing views. I loved how each room had a different style of architect ....

We went during the Candlelight Christmas tour and it was awesome - so beautiful - would definitely recommend going. Plan on going this spring when the flowers are in bloom - can't wait for another visit.

I've been to the Biltmore house, winery and hotel many times in different seasons and I must say it never disappoints! The main house is the star attraction, go early and take a tour of the house then have some lunch in the former stables. Great gift shop and ice cream parlor also nearby. Stroll the gardens and check out... More

I was in Asheville with a girlfriend for her birthday and we only had 24 hours to explore the area. I never intended to make the visit to the Biltmore but she really wanted to go to make it seem like we had done one "big touristy thing", so I obliged. When we went there and saw the ticket price,...

Wow! What a fantastic day out! The tour of the house is fantastic, and like stepping back in time. The audio tour is first class, and really brings the house to life. We got it free because it's off season, but it would be well worth the $10 normal price. Following our tour of the house, we also had afternoon... More

The Biltmore was never on my "got to see" list--but many friends who had visited the estate over the years recommended it highly, especially for Christmas. Despite the cost and the crowds, we thought it was really worthwhile. Beautiful grounds with gorgeous views of the mountains, and a pretty fascinating look at the lifestyle of the Vanderbilts. There are few... More
