Completed in 1895, George Vanderbilt’s 250-room chateau is as impressive today as it was more than a century ago. Biltmore House is truly a wonder of architecture and hospitality. Enjoy a self-guided tour of the house, as well as the 8,000 acre backyard of beautiful gardens and grounds surrounding it, designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. It is truly a magnificent site!

I took my parents to see the place lit up for the Christmas season. It was amazing even my teenage kids got into the history of the Biltmore. I wish I would have done more research before I went. I would have know more about the items and rooms I was seeing. But if you get the chance to go please go!

We enjoyed our visit to the Biltmore Estates. We were able to see all the attractions, that included the winery, shoppes, gardens and Estate. You need at least 2 days to tour the whole grounds. You could easily use 3-4 days to do all the extra amenities. Example, behind the scene tours of the house, carriage rides, horseback riding. There is a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes when you go. The gift shops and restaurants were a little pricey, but, this is a tourist attraction. You can just expect it. Very gorgeous property, and a whole lot of wow! We will go back to do more behind the scenes.

If you've never been to the Biltmore, it is something in Ashville, NC that you shouldn't miss. The architecture of the home, the decor and furniture are beyond beautiful, and that's just the home itself, then there's the beauty of the grounds. It is hard to imagine what it would be like to have lived here. My suggestion would be that you make sure you at least one full day, and possibly purchase a 2-day ticket.
The house is impressive.They offer a "treasure hunt" activity for young kiddos. Self-guided tour allows you to go mostly at your own pace. Slow moving lines on the first floor, but after that crowd seemed to lesson. Unfortunately we had a long wait for the shuttle bus to return to parking.

How long does it take to tour Biltmore Estate?
Allow yourself a full day to experience all that Biltmore has to offer. Guests are amazed at the size of the estate and you’ll want to give yourself enough time to see the House, Gardens and Antler Hill Village.
