Tips For Visiting The Biltmore Estate In Asheville
Buy your ticket online before you go. It saves time and you’ll get a better house time
1
You will reserve a time to enter the actual house. I recommend 1 or 2 pm. You can explore the grounds and gardens all day
Arrive around 10 am. Use self park and walk 0.2 miles to the estate. Follow the signs for “Diana”. You’ll see the beautiful statue on a hill
2
Turn around because this is where you get “that” photo of the Biltmore Estate
Arriving early gives you plenty of time to explore the grounds. Start with the renowned gardens
3
The first you’ll see is the famous Italian Garden, then the Hanging garden
The path will take you to the garden maze and the conservatory
You’re not done though. Follow the signs to the azalea garden
4
From here, you can pick up the start of the 2 miles of hiking trails that wander through the grounds
Very few people venture here. The trails take you to the Bass Pond and the back of the estate
Spend some time relaxing by the creek or waterfall and just enjoy the quiet time
When it’s your house time head inside and pay for the self guided tour. You’ll start with the dining room
5
The house is designed to weave you through a clearly defined path from room to room
The self guided tape provides insights and helps you identify rooms like the bowling alley, indoor pool and Halloween room
There is limited food at the house. Grab a snack, but reserve a spot at one of the many restaurants in Antler Village
6
Grab you car and drive to Antler Village. It’s on the grounds, but driving is faster than the trolley and parking is free
There are restaurants, a small farm, creamery, and the winery. With plenty of green grass, it’s perfect for the kids to run around
Take the tunnel to the winery for the wine tasting included with your ticket
Enjoy your wine, do a little shopping and head home for dinner
