We visited the Biltmore at Christmas - we had been once before but the house is so lovely at Christmas. We totally enjoyed our day. We did not need an audio or guided tour this time but recommend it for first timers. We will go back again and again.

We have made several visits to the Biltmore over the years. Always, worth the trip. It is nice to go at Christmas time and see all the decorations. My second favorite is the spring to see the gardens in full bloom. One downside is the audio tour. We have only been with a guide through the property. The audio tour... More

This estate is beyond words! 175,000 square feet of living space. We toured during Christmas with the Candlelight tour and were not disappointed. The audios were complimentary for the tour and provided great information. I would have preferred a guided tour, but that is an additional charge. There was so much to see and enjoy and only so much that... More

This was our 2nd visit to the estate so we could see it decorated for Christmas!! We went on a Monday morning and experienced no crowding which made for a very pleasant tour. The decorations were beautiful and did not disappoint. If this is your 1st visit I highly recommend the audio tour to give you info along the tour.

Has been on my bucket list for years and it did not disappoint. Even on a cold rainy day there was plenty to see and do. I went first thing in the morning and the crowds were not too bad. Wear your walking shows!

We loved the candlelight Christmas at the Baltimore House! Absolutely beautiful and so much fun. Loved feeling like we were stepping back in time. We will most definitely be returning next Christmas.

Although this house cannot compare to the castles and palaces of Europe (France, Germany, Austria etc) it is a quite huge and impressive estate. It was unique for its time and of course the restoration is very well done. The ticket price is too high for what you get, as a tour. And moreover if you want to get to... More

The Biltmore house at Christmas is gracious and warm, elegant and festive. A long day there is sufficient to see most everything though we stayed on the property for a weekend and did as much as we were able. It was like a time travel back 100 years to a simpler time. Lovely.

The Biltmore Candlelight Evening is not what it used to be. I remember previous visits that were peaceful, beautiful, and that felt special. Candlelight Evenings especially, used to have a cap on ticket sales so that the house wasn't so crowded and that the evening felt more personal. It was one of the reasons you would accept the higher cost.... More

I had considered not going to the Biltmore because of the steep ticket price, but I found a price break online if you buy a week in advance. Was glad I went.
