Has been on my bucket list for years and it did not disappoint. Even on a cold rainy day there was plenty to see and do. I went first thing in the morning and the crowds were not too bad. Wear your walking shows!

We loved the candlelight Christmas at the Baltimore House! Absolutely beautiful and so much fun. Loved feeling like we were stepping back in time. We will most definitely be returning next Christmas.

Although this house cannot compare to the castles and palaces of Europe (France, Germany, Austria etc) it is a quite huge and impressive estate. It was unique for its time and of course the restoration is very well done. The ticket price is too high for what you get, as a tour. And moreover if you want to get to... More

The Biltmore house at Christmas is gracious and warm, elegant and festive. A long day there is sufficient to see most everything though we stayed on the property for a weekend and did as much as we were able. It was like a time travel back 100 years to a simpler time. Lovely.

The Biltmore Candlelight Evening is not what it used to be. I remember previous visits that were peaceful, beautiful, and that felt special. Candlelight Evenings especially, used to have a cap on ticket sales so that the house wasn't so crowded and that the evening felt more personal. It was one of the reasons you would accept the higher cost.... More

I had considered not going to the Biltmore because of the steep ticket price, but I found a price break online if you buy a week in advance. Was glad I went.

The Biltmore Estate is absolutely gorgeous, from the grounds to the furnishings. I recommend making your appointment for the self guided house tour with the audio device as early in the day as possible. We arrived at 9:30 and the crowd was minimal, however at 11:00-12:00 it was extremely crowded. Your tickets must be printed, they will not accept them... More

Absolutely beautiful at Christmas time! My son, 7, thoroughly enjoyed the handheld device and children's audio tour. He really learned a lot. I was concerned because his attention span isn't very long but he was entertained during the entire tour. We liked that the tour was self guided so we could tour at our own pace. Docents were available in... More

Spent about 5 hours at the estate. It was decorated for the holidays and was just stunning. All of the docents were so helpful and informative. I cannot wait to go back when the grounds are in bloom!
