Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 14,000+ reviews on the web
The main house on Biltmore Estate: Catering contains more than 250 rooms, making it the largest privately owned home in the world. A short drive from the city, the sprawling estate includes landscaped gardens, stables, expansive hiking trails, and an award-winning winery. Go on a guided tour of the Renaissance-inspired house to learn about the Vanderbilt family, who built this large family home between 1889 and 1895. You may prefer a coach tour of the 3,237 hectare (8,000 acre) estate, where you'll learn how this land was developed and visit areas generally not open to regular guests. Explore the website to determine which tour is best suited to your interests, and reserve your tickets at least two days in advance.

  • The salesman at the ticket counter was intentionally vague about the times that the tickets we were about to purchase were valid from and to. A real thief in my opinion. I was so offended, I will not ever get to see the Biltmore because they charge so much for so little. Horrible case of greed gone unchecked. Disgusting.
  • Asheville has so much more to offer than the touristy and overly hyped Biltmore. It's become our version of Disneyworld. You can do so much better by patronizing the small, excellent local businesses that specialize in using locally grown organic produce. Give them a try and leave the Biltmore to the massive convention groups and such.
  • Great house if you don't mind the crowds. Take a walk around the grounds to escape some of the crowd. A visit to the Inn and wine tasting is also a good time.
