Tips for Visiting Biltmore Estate (By an Annual Passholder)

Biltmore Estate is our home away from home. We’ve been annual passholders at Biltmore for the last 12 years, so we’ve learned a thing or two about the Estate and all it has to offer guests.

Here are my best tips for visiting Biltmore Estate.

If you plan to tour both the house and gardens on your visit to Biltmore Estate, you will be doing a lot of walking.

Wear comfortable shoes 

The weather in the Asheville area is regularly quite a bit cooler than my hometown and gets more snow. 

Dress for the weather 

The audio guide is about 50 minutes long and gives you a lot of really great information about the rooms that you will be walking through.

Use the audio guide if it’s your first visit

A guided Biltmore house tour is an additional charge per person, but you get access to parts of the house not available on a self-guided visit.

Do one of the behind-the-scenes tours

If you want a guaranteed table at your dining venue of choice, I strongly recommend that you make a reservation.
