America’s Largest Home in Asheville, NC

Discover Biltmore House, Gardens, Antler Hill Village and Winery

In 1888, George Vanderbilt fell in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains and decided to make the region his home. The result was Biltmore, his historic estate in Asheville, NC.

More than a century later, Biltmore continues to welcome visitors. The estate’s crown jewel is Biltmore House, America’s largest home. During your self-guided visit, enjoy stunning architecture, priceless works of art, and a fascinating look at life at the turn of the 20th century.

Beyond Biltmore House, 250-acres of gardens beckon with panoramic mountain views and an assortment of native and exotic plants.

For a look at the estate’s agricultural heritage, drop by Antler Hill Village. Enjoy exhibits at The Biltmore Legacy, live entertainment at the Village Green, and family fun at the Farm. Biltmore’s Winery entices with complimentary wine tastings and a self-guided tour of the wine cellar.        

To see more of the estate, enjoy a variety of family-friendly activities from our Outdoor Center.

Great dining featuring local ingredients and shopping round out your visit. The four-star Inn on Biltmore Estate, the only accommodations on estate grounds, offers a luxurious conclusion to your stay.

Biltmore is open 365 days a year. Learn more and purchase tickets hotel packages at www.biltmore.com.
