Besides visiting and learning about the house's history, It is enchanting to see the Christmas lights at night. Well worth your time and the price.

The Biltmore Estate has a lot to offer. The home is a view of the grandness of the past and elegance. It's where my husband proposed to me! The grounds are beautiful and Christmas and Spring time there are lovely!!!

Decorations were lovely! Magnificent 35 ft live tree in formal dining room was spectacular. Tour was self-guided thru 4 floors, lots of steps, about 1.5 to 2hrs if you ask questions (no need to rush). Well organized. No photos allowed inside. Nice gift shops, ask for military discount if applicable (may have just been for Veterans Day). We also visited during the day and walked the grounds. Seeing the entire Estate/Grounds could fill a weekend or more. Must return to see spring/summer gardens and of course the tour the winery..

The Biltmore was decorated for Christmas, and we took the evening candlelight tour. It was magnificent! It is an amazing estate! We didn't get a chance to tour the gardens, but in November, there wasn't anything in bloom anyway, so we'll probably go back in the spring.
