This used to be an inexpensive place to come and have fun. Now it costs for "everything" as they nickle and dime you to death. No separate pricing to walk the grounds only. Must pay an entry fee to go visit the winery or shops...More

It was awesome. The house is so beautiful. Recommend for everyone. Leave the little kids at home though.

We booked the private trail ride with lunch back in August. After all the glowing reviews, and the amount of money we paid ($631.30 which was $492.20 for horse ride, $139.10 for the daily admission) we expected it to be awesome. We had planned to...More

Very well organized. $80 for tickets. Avoid weekends if possible as it is claustrophobically crowded. Enough so that we couldn’t really linger in any room. Would have liked the audio guide but that was another $25. Gardens and conservatory well worth the walk.

Really enjoyed our visit to the Biltmore Estate. The fine detail in each room was very interesting. Check out the detail in the ceilings! The grounds were also a nice leisurely walk and the greenhouse was very nice. My wife regrets not getting the audio...More

Loved going through the house on the self guided tour, but the guided tour of the rooftop and upstairs/downstairs was really interesting. We got a great deal of information about the inner workings of the house that you didn’t get on the self guided tour....More

The Biltmore is stunning! The exterior and grounds feel like the Loire Valley in France. The self guided tour allows you to go at your own pace and linger over rooms that interest you. The individuals who were in several of the rooms (guides/docents)) could...More
