Heard so much about the Biltmore Mansion that I came to Asheville specifically to see it. Glad I did! Its a stunningly beautiful place full of history and tradition. The architectural details are beyond compare from the moldings to the leaded glass window to the ceilings and everywhere in between. Wear comfortable walking shoes and allow yourself several hours to... More

Check the weather forecast before you go. We did the gardens in the morning before the rain so it worked out perfectly. Spent all day here. Ate lunch in Antler Village. Such a wonderful day.

We loved the house tour and we added the audio tour. We think it was worth the extra $11. Admission is $65. The website says that the ticket includes lots of things. It is really only the house tour; everything else is free once you're on the property. We ate at the Stable Café right next to the house and... More

The Biltmore Estate is beautiful, and interesting, and a little piece of history that you will enjoy learning about. There are a variety of things to see on the grounds.

Be sure and pay the extra $11 for the self guided audio tour. It is fantastic! $65 general admission is worth the price. So for $76 you will be extremely satisfied. Go early so you can spend all the time you want exploring the beautiful gardens after touring the house and the greenhouse, farm, and winery. Plenty of places to... More

The tour of the house was very interesting, but tiring. The self-guided tour appeals to me, since you can spend as much or as little time in each room as suits you. I was surprised by the quantity of people touring the home on a weekday morning. There are plenty of restrooms, places to eat, the gardens and conservatory for... More

An amazing and memorable experience. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. Be sure to wear proper walking shoes. Tons of photo ops! Very educational and informational of history associated with the Biltmore Estate and it's family.

We visited in the early Fall. Grounds and House are spectacular. If weather is predicted to be hot or wet, tour the gardens before the weather sets i - you can do the house when it's not so nice to be outside. Book your tickets for Biltmore on line at least 7 days in advance to get a discount (... More

Be sure to try to get Jack's tour -- he brings just the right combination of historical knowledge and genuine love for the quirky luxury of the Vanderbilt mansion.
