AMERICA’S LARGEST HOUSE
The Biltmore Estate is a must see Asheville attraction. This historic house museum is located just 8 miles from the cabins. A French Renaissance Revival-style home, the Biltmore house was built for George Washington Vanderbilt in 1895. At 178,926 square feet and with 125,000 acres, it was and still is America’s largest house. Vanderbilt employed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to design the beautiful grounds which surround the house, farms and forests along the French Broad River.
If you have more than one day to explore the estate, we recommend you buy a season pass in order to fully experience not just the house, but the incredible gardens, greenhouse, hiking trails, bike paths, river, farm, winery and other aspects of the Biltmore Estate.
