Visit Asheville's Top Attraction For a One of a Kind Experience
When you first see Biltmore House it looks like you could be at Disney World. The estate is the Vanderbilt's 250-room family home and country retreat in Asheville, NC covering 8,000 acres. This French Renaissance chateáu remains America's largest privately owned home. Some of its featured points are original art from masters such as Renoira, the Banquet Hall with a 70-foot ceiling, 65 fireplaces, an indoor pool, bowling alley, and priceless antiques. Formal and informal gardens, a winery, Equestrian Center, outdoor activities, and estate dining are all a part of the package. You can stay on the estate as well. Choose from the Inn on Biltmore Estate or the Cottage on Biltmore Estate. The Inn was awarded Four Stars by Mobil Travel Guide, Four Diamonds by AAA, and the inn is on Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List for three years running. The two-bedroom, two-bath cottage is complete with your own personal butler and chef ready to make every detail of your stay special. Click here for a virtual tour of the cottage. Enjoy all this and the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina for a vacation to remember.
