Biltmore

Experience the Beauty and History of the Biltmore Estate
Located only three miles from the Country Inn & Suites hotel in downtown Asheville, this French Renaissance château, completed in 1895, is the largest privately owned house in America. Built by George and Edith Vanderbilt to serve as their personal home, the house has been open to the public since 1930. Biltmore also includes a winery, live demonstrations at Antler Hill Village and shopping at the charming Biltmore Village.

The Estate
Embark on a self-guided tour of the 250-room Biltmore House. Take in a banquet hall with 70-foot ceilings, an indoor garden, a bowling alley and a 10,000-volume library where you can see a chess set that belonged to Napoleon. When you finish your tour, make sure to explore the grounds, which feature acres of gardens designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and views of the surrounding mountains.

The Winery
Wine tastings are included in the price of Biltmore Estate admission, so don’t forget to visit the award-winning winery, where you can sample rosé, red, white and sparkling vintages. After your tasting, stop by the shop to browse a selection of wines, gourmet foods and specialized kitchen accessories.

If you have a true passion for wine, book a Biltmore Package that includes these complimentary events:

  • Culinary Demonstrations at the Winery
  • Red Wine and Chocolate Seminar at the Winery
  • Winery Behind-the-Scenes Guided Tour

Antler Hill Village
Witness a craft demonstration by a woodworker or blacksmith, take a horseback ride or visit the farm animals at this historical village. A living tribute to the workers who farmed crops, cared for the estate’s livestock and ran the dairy, Antler Hill Village also features shops and restaurants.
