“So interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

My 11year old daughter and I just toured the mansion and it was entertaining for both of us, not just the beauty, but the stories about the history , we learned so much. Parking was easy and just walked in signed up for next tour which run every hour, and so inexpensive . They continue to restore more rooms, so would like to go back again in future, they say it is beautiful during Xmas

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

My 12 year old daughter and I toured the mansion and we loved it! The docent had grown up in the neighborhood and had great stories to tell. She was so knowledgeable about the history of the house and family and was very informative about the restoration work being done. Check out the beautiful built in cabinets in the dining room - gorgeous! Will definitely go again.

“Neat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Our guide was very knowledgable about the facts. It was a snowy morning and we had the place to our selfs. Our one hour tour took an hour and forty five minutes. A very cool place to see. Loved the stairwell and the captains room on the first level.

I wanted to see this place no matter what! But got even luckier. There was a beer and brat fundraiser for the mansion that weekend. Very cool. Hands down recommend for the period art and decour.

“So so.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Perhaps I'm jaded because I used to live in Asheville, NC and frequented the Biltmore regularly. The master bedroom has not been renovated. Pretty key room I'd say. Its a neat place if you are really into these sorts of places, but completely skipable if you are tight on time.
