Biltmore House Information

The Biltmore House And Gardens are located at Asheville North Carolina and it was built by George Vanderbilt between 1888-1895. It is the largest home in America at 175.000 square feet and is still privately owned by decendents of George Vanderbilt. It has 225 rooms and is truly one of the most beautiful places in the United States. The home is a French Renaissance Chateau from the Gilded Age.

The estate today covers 8000 acres and is split in half by the French Broad River. The home and grounds are currently owned by, The Biltmore Company which is still controlled today by Vanderbilts grandson, William A.V. Cecil, II. In 1964, The Biltmore House and Gardens was designated a National Historic Landmark.

The Biltmore House and Gardens remains a huge tourist attraction in Western North Carolina and over a million tourist a year visit. The springtime when all the flowers are blooming and when the house is decorated for Christmas remain the most popular times to visit.

There are 75 acres of formal gardens on the Biltmore Estate, a winery, and the Inn On Biltmore Estate which is a AAA four diamond 213 room world class hotel.

The home tour does involve a lot of walking but is well worth the effort. If I was going to suggest must see places for Western North Carolina, The Biltmore House And Gardens would be at the top of the list.

The Biltmore House And Gardens

The Biltmore House And Gardens is truly one of the most beautiful places in the United States. Admission to the Biltmore House and Gardens at the time this Hub Page was created was $59.00 per Adult and Children's Tickets ages 10-16 are $29.00. And the price of admission is well worth it. It is truly one of Western North Carolina's must see attractions. You can purchase Hotel/Admission Packages and this is the way we went. We really enjoyed The Inn on Biltmore Estate and I would say it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed and the staff there were very friendly and helpful. And with in 2 hours of Biltmore House are enough North Carolina and Tennessee attractions to keep you busy for a lifetime. If you have never visited Asheville North Carolina you should plan a visit soon and be sure to see, The Biltmore House And Gardens while you are there.

Wow! What an incredibly beautiful place. I can't imagine the immense wealth one would need in order to build and reside in such a wonderful place! It is definitely a place I would want to visit.
