Biltmore: More Than Just a Big House

Did you know that Biltmore offers more than just the largest private home in the country and its own winery? I did, but I didn’t know it offers as much as it does. With your General Admission ticket you get to explore the house and gardens, the new Antler Hill Village, restaurants, shops, and acres and acres of walking and biking trails.  In addition, you can take guided tours, specialty wine experiences, and lots of outdoor activities. These additional experiences cost more, but if you planned on doing some of the activities while in Asheville, why not enjoy them on the Estate? Here’s a list of all the neat stuff you can opt to do to enhance your experience:

  • Audio Guide to the Biltmore House: $10 – I advise my guests that if they have never been to Biltmore, this self-guided audio tour is worth the price as they will receive so much more information about the house, family and history than what they get from the brochure alone.
  • Behind-the-Scenes Tour: $17
  • Family & Friends Tour: $17
  • Rooftop Tour: $17
  • Guided House Tour: $17

  • Fly-fishing School: $125/2-hour lesson; equipment and materials provided
  • Guided Segway Tours: $75
  • Guided Horseback Trail Rides: $70/adults; $60/children (8-17)
  • Land Rover Experience Driving School: starting at $250 per vehicle for 1-6 hour adventures

  • Kids’ Land Rover Adventure Course: $55 (ages 4-10)

For any of the experiences listed above, you will need to contact Guest Services in order to make reservations and to check for pricing as it may change from time to time: 800.543.2961.
