Absolutley beautiful! I stayed at the Inn and from the moment you drive up (beautiful drive) they make you feel like royalty. If you get a room here everything is included with their packages and the views are absolutely phenomenal!
If this is your only trip to the southern Appalachians, then we highly suggest that you make this a day trip excursion. It is an easy 2 hour drive and well worth the effort.

An attraction to put on your list. Be sure to spend at least a half day to enjoy as much as you can. Good wine tasting, good food.
What a beautiful masterpiece right here in the US. This is a beautiful place to tour. I recommend getting the audio for the tour as it tells you more about each room you can walk through. Be sure to stop in the gift shop for some gifts as well as walk the gardens. I would opt out if eating on the grounds as the food is overpriced ($16 for a grilled cheese).
A must-see architectural masterpiece, amazing gardens, restaurants, concerts and special events!
Meet my cousins from Fukuoka, Japan -Hisano, Ken and Mihoko Fuchigami!!
a must see. They also have many side things to do. Horseback riding, Segway rentals, bike riding, hiking, shopping.
Incredible history and Architecture. The surroundings a beautiful and the restaurant has a view to remember.
Biltmore is a fabulous full day excursion. Plan to immerse yourself in the experience: explore the gardens in the cool hours of the morning and marvel at Frederick Law Olmstead's design - created from land that had been razed by logging - using plant material from around the world - at the turn of the century! How in the world did he even do that? Marvel at the exotic plants in the Victorian conservatory. Enjoy lunch at the Stable Cafe and browse the shops. Take your time as you do the self-guided tour through the mansion, keeping in the back of your mind this was George Vanderbilt's lifetime passion, that he traveled the world to find treasures, many of which the house was built around. Head over to the winery and sample the wines. End the day with dinner at The Bistro, every meal I've had there has been exquisite! The last time we were there we had the almond crusted brie appetizer, oh my word, it was so good!
You can be at the Biltmore Estate in one hour. Extraordinary place, and largest privately owned home in America. You should absolutely spend a day there. Enough to keep you busy all day and stop in Weaverville at the Well Bred Bakery going or coming. My favorite restaurant in Asheville is the Red Stag Grill at the Bohemian Hotel right across from the entrance to the Biltmore Estate.
Great PLACE TO VISIT AND SEE THE COUNTRYS LARGERT RESIDENCE. I ESPECIALLY RECOMMEND IT IN NOVEMBER AND DECENBER.
America's castle. Spend a day and be sure to take in the house, the gardens, the winery. There is a petting zoo for youngsters, as well as a play area. $10 discount for ordering online. Reservations will be needed on some days.
Everyone has heard of the Vanderbilts.
Didn't realize the extent of opulence they lived in.
Get your tickets and audio tours online to avoid the lines. Take your time trough the rooms.
Make sure you make it to the basement and servant areas. (Much more interesting as I would imagine that is where most of us would be employed at that time)
