This is a must see for anyone visiting the area! amazing they could build such a massive home that long ago. We took the self guided audio tour which took about 2 hours, took us through the entire house and gave a good explanation of things. Beautiful estate and grounds and all immaculately maintained. We had lunch in the "stables".... More

My family took a day trip to Asheville, NC including the Biltmore Estate. Unfortunately, we only got as far as the visitors center for the Biltmore. It was not equipped for those with mobility issues (no automatic doors to enter main door or bathrooms). There was a discounted rate of $50+ each for visitors with disabilities and a companion. We...

I have been to the estate a million times and would go back a million more. It is gorgeous and I always see something I missed the previous times I have been. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend this to anyone.

Everyone should visit here at least once in their lifetime. The Estate, gardens, winery are all truly amazing. The downside is that it is expensive to go. Admission for a regular basic ticket is $60. We got ours discounted for $50 but I still consider that too high for my liking. Since the place seems to be overrun with visitors... More

It has been at least ten years since we visited Biltmore Estate and I am glad we visited it again. The house is still amazing and the gardens will take your breath away. They are just beautiful this time of year. The new attractions and outdoor activities at the estate make this a must for any visitor to the Asheville... More

The place if you want to feel like the estate is yours. The grounds are wonderful & the concert series just adds to the experience. You can bring your animals & wonder at will... The perfect place to view the "house" but also to see the gardens are another wonderful part. I love feeding the ducks!!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. I have been several times and always enjoy seeing this incredible mansion. It is amazing people lived like this. The recording explaining each room is helpful and very interesting.
