What began in 1895 as George Vanderbilt’s country estate in Asheville, NC continues to be an amazing experience for today's visitors. At its core, Biltmore will always have the natural beauty of the mountains as well as the majestic house and gardens to inspire guests and encourage an escape from the every day.
Biltmore is still family-owned, and we are passionate about our mission of preservation through self-sufficiency—a philosophy embraced before the first stone was ever put in place.
Our unique ability to remain self-sustaining is the direct result of practical innovation and creative thinking. We listen to our guests who continue to tell us they want more ways to connect with Biltmore. Wine was our first foray into offering a taste of Biltmore. Now, you can experience life as a Vanderbilt guest at our Inn on Biltmore Estate. Hold your memorable wedding on the estate. You can even inspire your own everyday living with our line of home furnishings, garden décor, live plants, home building products, and food.
And so, full circle, we're all about home—welcoming and celebrating family and friends—and extending the spirit of Biltmore beyond our 8,000 acres.
It was true in 1895 and it remains true today.
