About Biltmore Estate
Biltmore is a private estate and a popular tourist attraction in Asheville. Owned by the Vanderbilt family, the mansion and its spectacular gardens were built between 1889 and 1895 by George Washington Vanderbilt and is currently the largest privately owned house in the United States.
The regal estate, which is one of the most prominent remaining examples of the Gilded Age, can be explored on a variety of self-guided and guided tours, including a breathtaking rooftop tour, which offers unbelievable views, and a tour through the magnificent manicured gardens.
Stroll through Biltmore’s charming Antler Village and Winery, where you can browse quaint stores and taste fine estate wines, or get a feel for what estate life is like with an overnight stay at one of three luxurious accommodations.
