This was our second trip to Biltmore. We were rushed for time last spring, so we took our time this winter. We bought the audio tour this time as well, it was worth it. They also had Downton Abbey exhibits, we enjoyed that as well. I love history, so I always enjoy hearing and reading about the house. The wine... More

This is my favorite place to go to in NC and is definitely in my top 10 favorite places to go to in general. I definitely recommend going when the roses bloom or during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holdidays. It is just breath taking how beautifully decorated it is. You will still have a wonderful experience any time you go... More

We spent the entire day at the estate and we took some of the tours. I would recommend spending a little extra an taking a tour if you have time. We enjoyed the free samples at the winery as well

We started our day with lunch at the stables. It is a big restaurant with a great atmosphere. They have good food, several vegetarian options. Not cheap but definitely worth a visit! After that we spend some time looking around in the shops: old toys, candy and souvenir shops. We didn't take the guided tour, we went on our own.... More

Mom with 5 & 3 yr old. We went to the house first & I love that I could bring a stroller & go at my own pace. There were times that my 3 yr old son was getting antsy & I could just move on and not worry about interrupting or bothering anyone. I got the audio because I... More

If you appreciate beautiful architecture you must visit here. Honestly even if you don’t you would still love it. This house is amazing the architecture, décor, history and just it’s sheer size is stunning. There is nothing simple about this place and to think it was built over 100 years ago makes it even more fascinating. I could wonder around... More

Gorgeous, immense, European estate in North Carolina! The tour can be a bit crowded on peak days, and the ticket prices are a bit expensive but I couldn't recommend more a visit to Biltmore! The perfectly maintained grounds, artwork, and building architecture are out of this world and take you back to a different era. Highly, highly recommended - No... More

There are not enough superlatives in the English language to describe this house, even on a dreary winter day. Don't bother with the audio tour, nor a guided tour - just use the booklet they furnish to poke around on your own. Even off season, the crowds were large. Give yourself three hours to see the house.
