The Biltmore Estate
Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC
See one of the most iconic landmarks in Asheville. The Biltmore Estate is a magnificent French mansion built by George Washington Vanderbilt II in 1895 in the North Carolina mountains.
With 250 rooms, totaling 175,000 square feet, it is the largest privately-owned home in America.
The 8,000-acre estate is still family-owned today, and is listed as a National Historic Landmark. Visitors should allow two days to tour the mansion, stroll the 75-acre gardens, and shop and dine at the Antler Hill Village & Winery.
The nearby Outdoor Adventure Center offers bike rentals, carriage rides, fly-fishing lessons, guided horseback rides, guided segway tours, river float trips, and a Land Rover driving school.
The Biltmore Estate also features seven onsite dining options, and is just two miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway – and one mile from downtown Asheville.
