My extended family and I took the type the day after Christmas. The Biltmore was beautifully decorated and going for the evening candlelight tour was worth the extra money. We were able to go beck the next day to tour the greenhouse, take the wine tasting tour and look in the shops. We all thoroughly enjoyed both days on the... More

Wow, what an experience! I am not a person that is into the decoration traditions of the Christmas holiday whatsoever but I was absolutely floored by the efforts of the Biltmore Estate. Every detail is extravagantly considered. My eyes were stammering to take it all in. What a beautiful display of craftsmanship and architecture that place is on any day... More

This sprawling estate house is a worthwhile visit for any history buff. The house was built for the Vanderbilts, a prominent American family. Spend a few hours or devote an entire day to see the house, gardens (in summer), and winery.

I've been visiting over the 20 years I've lived in the area. Even after all this time and numerous visits there is always something new so see. The tulips in the spring followed by the roses in the garden are so beautiful. The greenhouse is a refuge of peace and tranquility. Seats and benches discreetly placed around make it easy... More

The Biltmore was such an amazing experience! It offers so much to do from tours to shops, and wine tastings! This is something I would recommend for every family or couple to experience together!

We spent the whole day exploring the Biltmore last Saturday. They move people through the house systemically and everything flows pretty well. We left for lunch and came back, the food was way overly priced and we wanted to explore Asheville a bit.

Can you imagine living in the late 1890's in a house on 125,000 acres, and surrounded by servants and opulence? Visit Biltmore Estate and you can get a glimpse of what life was like not only for the very rich, but also the servant class who were employed there.

This was my fourth to Biltmore over a number of years. While I have great memories of the house and grounds, they did not match the splendor of this magnificent chateau and estate. Fortunately, the family still owns the property and is developing it slowly. The house and story of its construction was neat to re-learn. More of the house... More

We went for the Candlelight Tour at Christmas. The house was better than ever. We have been before but not at Christmas and it was great. We were there two days in a row and stayed late the first day for the lighted tour. Beautiful decorations and the carolers were fantastic. If you've never been, this is one of the... More
