What an experience The Biltmore is!! We had only a day and a half in Asheville so this is the one attraction we did! The house is beautiful! We wish we had time to do one of the Behind The Scenes tours. The gardens were beautiful!! We didn't make it to the Bass Pond or Deer Field. A reason to... More

The estate is great, but I would go during a cooler time. The Biltmore is not air conditioned, based on keeping with the era of the home. Make sure you take a water bottle with you before walking in the gardens. It's a long walk to some areas.

The Biltmore House and Estates is 2 places for the price of one. The house is unbelievable in its educational value and has a pleasurable appeal. Yes it is expensive to go see this beautiful place, it had no rides for kids and you did have to walk a lot. I told the grand-kids it is a place everybody should... More

The Biltmore estate is beautiful and amazing how many things they have going on there. We were the fools who went during the summer on a Saturday and waited in long and crowded lines within the house. At first it was barely moving and we found out it was because they were stopping people to take pictures that you can... More

Went to visit the Biltmore for the first time ever with my wife over Labor Day Weekend 2014. Overall, its definitely worth visiting at least one time but I must say that I developed an opinion that this place is...greedy, for lack of a better word. Encountered some practices along the way that made me scratch my head and ask... More

I went to Biltmore Estate on a summer friday afternoon, great weather and not so crowded. The house is quite impressive, huge and with lot of rooms to visit. Personally I don't like the mix of styles, but it's a nice visit. I loved more the ground floor, where the Vanderbilt had an indoor swimming pool, a bowling area, and... More

I have been to Biltmore several times. You will not be disappointed any time of the year. Christmas is a must see though! Be sure to take the behind the scenes tours and have a meal. It's wonderful!

This is a national treasure. We loved the audio tour and walking the gardens. Everything about Biltmore is totally over-the-top in a great way. We plan to go again at Christmas.

I love touring grand old homes with history behind them and have looked forward to seeing Biltmore for years. For the price we paid for tickets, audio guide (well worth the extra $10) and parking I expected to see more than the dozen rooms we were allotted. My mom, unfortunately, was not able to visit the basement and 3rd floors... More

Loved the Biltmore! Of course wish we could have had it all to ourselves but instead was trapped in a slow moving, very crowded line. We rented the headset so got a lot of interesting information as we passed through. Especially enjoyed the servants quarters and lower floor. Just wish we could have gone at our own pace instead of... More
