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!
Good To Know
This was my third time in The Biltmore. Each time has been a different experience. Christmastime the decorations are beautiful, springtime the tulips are all in bloom, and in the summertime the gardens are all fully in bloom. Make sure you take the audio tour. It's so informative and very worth the extra expense.

Loved the Biltmore! Interesting history, lovely views of the green mountains, beautiful gardens and free wine tasting at the vineyard. The Wedding Dress exhibit in August was a nice bonus.
"Where are you going next?" "Asheville" "Great! We are pass holders at The Biltmore. Well join you for the weekend" Wait.. what? And that is how I ended up vacationing with my parents. It is actually nice. It could be worse. There are enough things to do and people who are young to make this not feel as if I am it The Villages bus tour.
We took the audio guided tour of the Biltmore house. Our tour date was a Saturday which was very busy and we did have a reserved tour time. We also took advantage of the Valet parking which was worth the extra to not have to park at such a long distance from the house and rely on shuttles. We drove right up to the front of the estate and our car was parked for us. We took some extra time to look into several shops while waiting for our tour. They had wine tasting and samples of products in one store and many beautiful things for purchase. Our tour started at 11:30 and took approximately 1.5 hours. The home was beautiful and the audio tour was a great extra! They also have a separate audio version of the tour for children which my daughter really enjoyed. After touring the house we walked through the gardens which were breathtaking. The smell of all the flowers filled the air as you walked throughout the gardens. We enjoyed our day at Biltmore and the surrounding and definitely plan to come back during the holidays as we have heard it is amazing.
