So very glad that we took a day from our Gatlinburg vacation to drive over here. This place and its history are remarkable. The house and gardens alike are truly amazing. It is expensive for the day, but we are glad we did it. Our boys, 14 and 11, enjoyed it as well and were amazed that people lived like... More

If you really want to see not only a amazing home that has all sorts of educational things but the grounds are absolutely gorgeous. Also the winery. Just going through this amazing home with the fixtures to the beautiful furnishings the bowling alley in the house I personally can't describe all and give it justice.

So to the idiots who think the Biltmore has lost its way with the Downton Abby exhibit: it's temporary. It's a fun tour, especially when you've done it before.

Had a great time at Biltmore, this was my second visit. We toured the house using the audio guide, only about thirteen dollars and so informative. Later we did the upstairs/downstairs behind the scenes tour, it too was under fifteen dollars. I highly recommend both of those to get the best experience. The gardens were spectacular. When driving out of... More

An amazing place that I would never have expected to see in the U.S. Audio tour is good to do and took us about two hours. We also did the "Upstairs, Downstairs" tour for an additional fee. They take only a limited number so best to get tickets for it as soon as you arrive or, better yet, online. There... More

I would love to live in that mansion. The place is beautiful and I would have it in my bucket list if I had not been there twice already.

This was one of many visits to Biltmore House and we see something "new" each time!! We went to see the Downton Abbey costume exhibit but were a bit underwhelmed. The costumes were tucked into the rooms, and I almost missed them. However, the house is remarkable, the gardens magnificent and the staff friendly and helpful. We always enjoy our... More

My sister and I took our mother to Biltmore on a Monday a week after Mother's Day. The Biltmore is just breathtaking and unique. We walked the gardens and Conservatory first which I would highly recommend because it got hot quickly. There were many stairs and it was a workout. I was slightly disappointed because we missed the azaleas blooming.... More

If you go be sure to do the audio tour. Small fee for so much information. It explains a lot of the history. I will definitely be going back again.

Well this trip was amazing! Having been to Biltmore 5 times before, this time we chose candlelight tour and behind the scenes.... Totally worth it!! Especially the behind the scenes. We got a private tour, with just my family and one other guest. We went into areas of Biltmore I had never seen before.
