Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview

Explore the Biltmore, George Vanderbilt’s 250-room château, with a 90-minute self-guided audio tour that includes a lunch voucher to your choice of several on-site restaurants. Built in 1895, “America’s Largest Home” sits on an 8,000-acre (3,240-hectare) estate in North Carolina's scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Learn about the Vanderbilt home and enjoy access to the 75 acres (30 hectares) of formal gardens, a large conservatory, and seasonal exhibitions included in admission.

What to Expect

Experience the Timeless Elegance of Biltmore House

Biltmore House is truly a wonder of architecture and hospitality. Completed in 1895, George Vanderbilt’s 250-room château is as impressive today as it was more than a century ago. As part of your package, you’re invited to enjoy a 90-minute self-guided audio tour of the house where you’ll learn about the Vanderbilts, their guest and servants, and the surrounding architecture, design, and artwork. Your self-guided house visit spans three floors and the basement. Almost all of the priceless objects on display throughout the Biltmore House are from George and Edith Vanderbilt’s original collection. You’ll see vintage clothing, accessories, art, furniture, and more that tell stories and illustrate the lives of the Vanderbilt family, their guests, and employees. Get a close look at original art by Pierre-Auguste Renoir and John Singer Sargent. Marvel at magnificent 16th-century tapestries, the Library with 10,000 volumes, and the Banquet Hall featuring a 70-foot ceiling. State-of-the-art for the 19th century, Biltmore House amenities include 65 fireplaces, an indoor pool, an electric elevator, and a bowling alley.

 Explore the Estate Grounds

In our beautiful historic gardens—designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, father of American landscape architecture—walking paths and trails lead from the wisteria-draped Library Terrace to the Bass Pond, winding through six distinctly different gardens, woodlands, and meadows. Biltmore’s horticultural experts continually work to preserve the original vision for the gardens and grounds, including the Rose Garden that features more than 250 varieties.

Toured the Biltmore Estate with audio. Great architecture and interesting story of the Vanderbilt family and how they used this estate. Also extensive records including photos of the building process completed before the turn of the century. Great to experience this once. This is similar...More

This is just something you do when in Asheville. It can get crazy busy certain times of the year so be prepared. It's truly a one of a kind place but for me...not at all worth the $75 fee to enter the front door. We...More

Hard to say. If it were me, I would go the 26th. Christmas at Biltmore is very popular and busy. Just have to be patient! It's worth the visit.
