You are here

America’s largest home…is the centerpiece of Biltmore Estate. George Vanderbilt, the youngest son of an American family famous for their wealth, opened his country retreat in 1895. The Biltmore House collection includes seven 16th century tapestries, six portraits painted by John Singer Sargent, Barye sculptures, Persian carpets, and all the original furnishings. The collection is sure to amaze you just as it did the original 19th century guests. Your tours through the house and the grounds are self guided.

Biltmore Estate Gardens… feature rambling trails, a world famous azalea collection and a beautiful walled garden. Allow time to tour these at your own pace as they are considered some of the best examples of Frederick Law Olmsted’s designs.

Options to enhance your day visit of the house include…

  • An MP-3 Player: This audio tour explains the collection as you walk at your own pace through five levels of house.
  • A guided "Behind the Scenes Upstairs/Downstairs" tour of Biltmore House: Be escorted through areas in the 250-room Mansion that are NOT open to the general public and learn even more about the fascinating family and collection.
  • A guided “Rooftop Tour”: This tour also brings you behind-the-scenes but it includes rooftop excursions to capture the breathtaking views from high atop the roof. Photos are encouraged.
