The best time to visit the Biltmore House in the mountains of North Carolina is during the fall (but please don’t do this while visiting Thailand, but in case you like rainy weather go on ;). That way not only will you get to enjoy the amazing Biltmore House but you will also be able to enjoy the beauty of the leaves changing colors. There are few things more beautiful than the North Carolina Mountains during the fall with the leaves turning bright orange, yellow, and red. The vibrant colors serve as a beautiful backdrop to the imposing Biltmore Estate.
The Biltmore Estate consists of an immense mansion built by the Vanderbilt family in the late 1800s. It is the largest home that is privately owned in the United States and the descendants of the Vanderbilts still live there. It is amazingly large at 175,000 square feet. The available tours of the home are simply incredible and it is unbelievable to tour the home and realize that more than 130 years ago architecture, design, and the like were so advanced.
When is the best time to visit
The best time to visit if you want to save money is during the winter months. And, many times the North Carolina winter is fairly mild so you won’t be worried about freezing to death when visiting. Hotel prices are much cheaper during this offseason and you can even get a winter pass for $35, which is considerable savings!
If you want to enjoy the atmosphere of the Biltmore Estate then staying at the Inn is the best route. The Biltmore Inn is beautiful and located on the Biltmore Estate and when you stay there you receive free entrance into the Biltmore Estate. This is a great way to combine the hotel with the tour and save money while enjoying the atmosphere.
The Biltmore Estate is also a great place to host meetings, conferences, weddings, and even to shoot movies. The grounds are exquisite and the home is gorgeous and is the perfect place for any special event. While you are in Asheville, North Carolina you should also check out the Urban Trail. This is a walking trail that teaches individuals about Asheville’s history and architecture. Famous author Thomas Wolfe’s childhood home is in Asheville as well and a tour of his home place is interesting and inspiring.
When you head to Asheville, North Carolina you will have an amazing vacation. You can spend time at just the Biltmore Estate, or you can venture out and see more of the area. But, whatever you do, one thing is for certain and that is that you will love the experience.

Our country is big, but don’t make a problem with that. I recommend you to visit other corners of our beautiful country. For example, take a ride on National Scenic Route or visit our south Californian city, San Diego. There are a lot more places to visit in my blog in the future!
