“Very Organized Very Beautiful Very Expenisve”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I was given free tis to go. It has become very popular over the years. You should call and schedule a viewing as they make you go at certain times on certain days. I think tickets are around 40 bucks. Its worth getting a season pass if you might go more than twice in a year. The property is huge. They have filned both Richie Rich and one of the Hanibal movies there. Parking was well organized and quick. They have lots of shops, wine tastings, and shopping there. I would highly reccomend getting the self guided audio tour. the head sets are easy to use and make it interesting. I had a 3 yr old that used them and my 14 yr old thought they kept it interesting. IMPORTANT TIP. The Mansion has 41 bathrooms but you cant use a single one. You have to use the bathrooms outside. the tour can last over an hour, so if you have to go....you better go before the tour.

“Late spring is the best time to go!”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Biltmore's is an excellent place to spend a day or two. The house is amazing, but the other amenities are well worth it too! My wife and I highly recommend the wine tasting and tour. The gardens are amazing as well. Be sure to wear good walking shoes and make your way along the trails near the gardens. The candy shop and stable restaurant are both exceptional!

“Disappointed! !!”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

Drove all the way from Chattanooga only to be told they were sold out on tickets for inside the estate but we could tour the property. No thanks would like to see the house. The employees were very rude about the whole thing like it was no big deal that we wasted a trip a hotel night and gas to get there. I guess when u are that big u don't care about people's feelings..
