This is definitely a must visit if you are in Asheville! A beautiful and stunning estate and gardens with a fascinating history. I will say this - don't go in the summer! As much as we wanted to take our time looking at all the details and walking the grounds, we couldn't. It was SO hot. There's no air conditioning... More

My north Carolina son Benjamin and I have visited the Biltmore Estate several times. This place is fit for a king or queen. Vanderbelt built the best and pares with all castles in the world. I am due for a return visit!

Very interesting history and incredible house. They are well staffed and eveyone was very friendly and willing to share information. I would highly recommend the audio tour as it adds extra depth to the house tour. Our teenagers did not really appreciate the visit, and for the price of tickets I don't know if it's really worth it for them.... More

I wasn't really impressed the tour took about an hour and a half. Maybe I just can't appreciate it like someone else would. I will say though that the views from the house are absolutely amazing. And the house is gorgeous. I just wouldn't pay that kind of money on it.

The Biltmore is known all around the world and is an awesome estate to see. The best time is during Thanksgiving and Christmas when the lights are all up. There is a lot to see and you'll get to do a wine tasting if you take a tour.

I don't need to be the 10000th person to tell you that this is a cool place. It is world famous. I will say the discount for booking more than seven days ahead is worth it, and I love that the kids were free. The audio tour was quite good and the kids enjoyed theirs also. You really do get...

The Biltmore was beautiful. We expected it to be so. It is more than impressive in its size and architecture and design. Beautifully decorated, fun to walk through and gawk at the enormous residence. But the Biltmore property is so much more than a big house. My boys 10 and 12 had such a great time running around the grounds,... More

My sister and I stayed on Halloween night at the hotel. Our breakfast and dinner were wonderful and prepared from food raised on the estate. Hot tubbing under a full moon on Halloween was extraordinary. It might be a little pricy, but well worth it. Will repeat again some day!!

Though it's a thrill to walk back in time to see how the super wealthy lived and see this amazing mansion, it would be kinder to limit number of entrants during periods of intense heat. At $50 a tour (with a coupon) I think we deserved more unobstructed views and less crowds of people. When exiting into the courtyard you... More

Wonderful experience visiting Biltmore in late July, 2016. Amazing sights, both architectural and natural. Hard to believe this was/is a private residence. The overall grounds of the estate are bigger than most cities, and rival the size of many US counties in acreage. Highly recommend the 'Rooftop Guided Tour', which we loved. Our tour guide, MaryRuth was extremely knowledgeable, answered... More
