Spectacular!! My wife's Aunt visited us from Philadelphia. We went to Biltmore Estate to tour the Mansion, Gardens and grounds! It's a spectacular experience! The ice cream was good, also!

I was not so impressed to learn the family still owns the property and charges so much to get in... $64. per adult for a lot of walking through just part of the house and basement, and entry to Antler Village, another money maker. For a city dweller I guess the grounds have some value for their serenity. Anyone with... More

I have to admit I was hesitant to visit the Biltmore. I questioned whether the price of admission ($55) was worth it. I discovered that it was! The estate is an architectural marvel. If you are interested in design, construction, or antiques there is something to see around every corner. Besides the house, the admission allows entry to the gardens,... More

I have always wanted to visit the estate and we finally made it. It did not disappoint. Although my husband was correct in his complaint of the cost and commercialism, it was a place to visit at least once in a lifetime. While the price of the ticket was costly, adding the guided tour package is a must! It was... More

When you go to Biltmore you travel back in time and fashion and you feel transported to a world of elegance and finesse, it is so unbelieveable I had to pinch myself so to feel I was awake and not dreaming. My daughter, her husband, my husband and I were just flattered, it was just awsome. I strongly recommend it

The beauty and grandeur of the Biltmore Estate is not to be missed if you are any where near Asheville, NC. When touring the home, be sure to purchase the audio package. It not only provides the facts of the rooms you're touring but gives you the 'local color' of the time period and a deeper understand of the people... More

Great concert of Rick Springfield with the beautiful surrounding of the Biltmore Estate and the majestic mountains. What could be better than being outside in the open air with close friends and a friendly audience!

The Biltmore house is exquisite, as well as the grounds. Since this was our 3rd time there, we gave a quick tour of the house. I had forgotten how beautiful the woodwork is and the ceilings are spectacular. Afterwards, we drove to the winery area and had lunch at the small cafe. Two BLTs and a root beer soda cost... More

The Biltmore wants about $50 to see about 1/5 of the rooms in the building. It is modestly interesting, very hot in the summer, with furnishing and paintings typical of the historical period of its heyday. OK to see once.

We did a self guided tour of the house. Be advised that the tour is fairly pricey at $60pp NOT including the audio tour or the shuttle from the entrance to the actual house. If you take an Uber they will let the driver take you all the way to the front entrance of the house and you can get... More
