Biltmore Estate

Known as America's largest home, Biltmore Estate is the stunning 250-room retreat of George and Edith Vanderbilt that was completed in 1895. Situated in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, the estate is open to the public. For the price of admission, you can embark on a self-guided tour of the Biltmore House & Gardens, taste top-tier wine or tour the winery, and enjoy a little history at the newest exhibition, "The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad."
