Gigantic, beautiful mansion! It's a must-see, especially when decorated for Christmas!
People come from all over the country to experience the Biltmore Estate. While it is about an hour from the cabin, have a look at their website and see if you might want to make the trip. It is an enormous estate with guided and unguided tours as well as restaurants, biking trails, and events.
Opulence beyond words. Pricey unless you purchase tickets on-line a few weeks before your arrival, but worth the cost of full-fare.
America’s largest home in Asheville. It’s a must see. Will take all day. Check before you go but they used to let you come back the next day free if your ticket entrance time was after 3pm.
The grandest palace in the Americas. Beautiful Museum is a delicious way to participate in the USA history. Winery, restaurants, gardens and hotel are part of the estate.
Yes, it IS a tourist attraction, and yes, it is pricey, and yes, it takes a day or two to visit. BUT - after 40 years living in Asheville, I still have a seasonal pass. If you are only here for a day or two - you don't have time for this. Add an extra day - the gardens are amazing, the art…
Take a beautiful tour of this vast estate. From walking, hiking, and biking to falconry and sporting clays, there’s so much to enjoy in our 8,000 acre backyard. 90 minutes away.
Acres of gardens, restaurants, a dairy farm, and a gorgeous house to tour means you can’t see the whole place in a day, but it’s worth a try.
No visit to western North Carolina is complete without a visit to the Biltmore Estate, America's Largest Home! There's something for everyone to discover, dine, taste, and explore, from the magnificent house itself to the ever-changing gardens and grounds, to the restaurants and shops. Plan to…
One of the most expensive attractions. A must see that takes at least half a day. We love the special exhibits. The next special attraction is the Christmas display. Awesome.
The Biltmore is a must see! I have been over 20 times and still have not been able to appreciate every detail. Plan to spend all day here. I'd suggest an audio tour as you walk through the home so you can hear the history of each room at your own pace. Don't forget to save time to check out the…

The largest privately owned residence in America. You could spend a week here and not see everything.
Top visitor attraction for Asheville. Beautiful grounds, wine tasting, restaurants and the grand Biltmore House
Hailed as the largest home in the USA, it defies description. You simply have to take a tour to really experience it. Wonderful for art, culture and history buffs.
World famous mansion (Largest Home in America) on 7,000 acre estate. Six miles away.
Worth the day trip! The self guided tour is so interesting! Highly recommend visiting here around Christmas time
A must do when in Asheville. Visit the largest private residence in the country and try the great food and wine. Biltmore wines are available for purchase at the Winery. The food at the Stables Restaurant and Bistro is delicious.
Exquisite mansion built by George Vanderbilt while he was still a bachelor. Also beautiful gardens and winery.
History and architecture at its best! Horseback riding, Segway tours , wine tasting and a small animal zoo!
“Do you love nature but aren't huge on hiking? The Arboretum will sum it up perfectly! And in the spring/summer it's just so beautiful. They even have a succulent/bonzai tree feature that's incredibly fun.”
Outdoor Event Space
“I call it the Willy Wonka factory for beer. On the weekends there is almost always live music in their outdoor amphitheater, and the lower park on the river is open too! They also have an excellent restaurant. This one could have gone in our breweries section, but it's worth going even if you never have a sip.”
“A gorgeous hotel that's open to the public. Explore the 1920's era building, enjoy the great room with its giant fireplaces, and catch the sunset from their patio with a beverage. ”
“Local animals to Western North Carolina. My kids always enjoy this small zoo. ”
