We’ve never been to Biltmore, so this was a first! But it was a AWESOME FIRST. There’s so many things to do + see, it’s definitely worth checking out.
Where to stay:
We stayed in The Inn at Biltmore Estate. I 10000% recommend staying here! The service is incomparable, and the food is beyond incredible. Depending on your package, breakfast may be included. GET THE PACKAGE THAT INCLUDES BREAKFAST. It’s all you can eat of the most exquisite breakfast choices, and the servers are incredibly kind. Not to mention the amazing view from the outside every morning!!
The pancakes are the way to go though…
On our first day we went to see the estate! It’s an amazing 175,000 square foot home, built on stunning landscape. There are like hundreds of gardens surrounding the house, each with it’s unique touches. We toured the home for about 2 hours, before leaving to go get lunch in Antler Village, which is right outside The Inn. There are some restaurants there, along with creameries and other shops!
Our second day was the best day! We rented bikes to ride around the estate, and we rode for two hours! It’s only about $35 dollars for two people to ride around for two hours, which is a STEAL. However, I would recommend choosing the 4 hours. After we finished, I found there was still SO much to be seen around the estate grounds, that two hours just wasn’t enough to fit everything in! After that, we went to grab lunch back at Antler Village, before we went to ride horses! Our tailbones were taking a hit, but it was super worth it.
Worst day. The last day. We stayed for 4 days, but I didn’t include the day we got there. We just hung out around the hotel. On our last day in Biltmore we drove around Asheville and more of the downtown areas! There’s so much GREAT food to eat. We walked around most of the day getting photos of all the amazing landscape, doing some shopping, and ended up eating dinner at The Cantina at Biltmore Village. Best queso ever. 10/10 RECOMMEND DINNER THERE.
It’s definitely worth a visit to the largest house in America, and being able to do all the other things there are too! I would say stay about 4-5 days, and pack everyday with activities. Wake up early!!
