It does not matter the time of the year you go to Biltmore Estates it is always lovely.....the grounds are beautiful whether with spring flowers or fall colors. The building is gorgeous and you will want to enjoy the tour or even two tours. Love the gift shop as well. Plan to possibly spend two days to really enjoy it!

very touristy and if you are a wine geek you will not be impressed with their wines. It's a far cry from Burgundy

Awesome and amazing to tour America's largest private home! It feels like you are in Downton Abbey :-) Great restoration and preservation top make this place a premier sightseeing and educational opportunity. The grounds and gardens are also lovely. Fabulous views from the lanais. Be sure to rent the headsets that give you a guided tour at your own pace.... More

Words can't describe the beauty and opulence of the Biltmore. First time visitor, but hopefully won't be the last. We purchased the minimal tour, but would like to be able to see more of the house, a little pricier though. However, the tour did not disappoint.

We visited here on our honeymoon. The Biltmore is very impressive! We didnt do the audio, we just read the guide book as we went from room to room. Great tour!

What a hugely magnificent mansion. We did the self-guided tour with the headphone. Great way to see the mansion and hear all the history. You travel at your own pace - no rush.

My husband and I went to Asheville just to see this and we were not disappointed. We purchased a two day ticket in order to split the tour of the gardens and the house. The gardens were breathtaking as was the house. The tour of the gardens was about 3 hours and the house tour was about 2 hours. The... More
