Strolling the grounds and enjoying the gardens is a must at Biltmore.
Wait, This is Not Your Typical Historic House Tour!
First-time visitors to Biltmore almost always underestimate the amount of time it takes to tour
the sprawling estate. If you plan to see the house, gardens, Antler Hill Village and the winery,
you will ideally want two days.

My husband, myself and two friends took a day trip to visit Biltmore and see a little of Asheville. The trip did not disappoint.
Our tour wasn't until 4 PM so we came early to make a day of it. We started the day at the Winery. We did the wine tasting,
visited and stop and purchased some wine to take home from the trip. We opted to take the 8-minute walk to the Biltmore as
the weather couldn't have been more perfect for February. We toured the stables, visited the barn, the creamery, grabbed a
beer and headed over to the house. It is absolutely stunning, as I imagined it would be. The views from the open area to the
left of the house are incredible. We visited the gardens and cannot wait to return when they are in bloom. The tour through
the house took about an hour and a half and my only regret was not buying the audio tour. We will definitely do this next
time. The Titanic Movie costumes were also inside which was an incredible plus.
