I've been here many times and this place never disappoints. The home is amazing. The hotel is one of the Souths best. There isn't a bad time of year to visit this place. And the supporting attractions and restaurants has really grown.

We toured Biltmore three years ago and went back today. It was very crowded in the house for a Monday. Kind of surprised by that. Some of the rooms were cluttered and slow to move with all the tourists. Ate lunch in the stable and was not disappointed. Everyone was helpful and friendly. Would have liked to walked the gardens...

It's a must-see if you are in the area. The admission is a bit expensive and it was very crowded when we were there in July. But the house is an amazing place with a lot of history and interesting stories. I was most intrigued by the basement...

Step back in time and see the upper 1% of this time. Very well done and majestic in many ways. Well worth the price of admission.

Amazing house. Pay extra $18 and valet right up front to eliminate shuttles and crowds. It also let's you feel how it would be as a guest driving right up to front door. House is like nothing you have ever seen. Avoid hot days to visit as in the 1800s there was no A/C and it can get extremely hot... More

This palace; yes palace; is beautiful all year long, and over the years more and more rooms have become available for visitors to see. It is gorgeous in the spring - the gardens are phenomenal and resplendent in winter for Christmas.

We love it ... the tours of the house and gardens with the seasons and taking guests. Walking our dogs is such a pleasure and hiking the property as well. Worth money for the season pass

Unfortunately, We had a limited amount of time at the estate but we packed in as much as possible. The grounds are well kept & spectacular. Definitely purchase the self-guided tour which provides the historical background for the home tour. We arrived about an hour prior to closing but were told to not hurry & take our time. We spent...

This was worth the Trip. We stayed 7 hours on the estate. I do suggest you spent the extra $10.00 and take the audio tour. You learn a lot of history. It was very interesting. We also went to the winery, creamery and the farm. It was a nice visit.

We arrived early on a Monday, so not very crowded, were able to breeze through the house with minimum of others, great way to see it. Best to do gardens in the am as it gets HOT in the afternoon in summer. Winery was interesting, you could sample as many wines as you wanted, we found several we really liked.... More
