Located in Asheville, North Carolina, Biltmore was the vision of George W. Vanderbilt, who first opened Biltmore House to family and friends on Christmas Eve 1895. Designed by Richard Morris Hunt, America’s largest home is a 250-room French Renaissance chateau, exhibiting the Vanderbilt family’s original collection of furnishings, art and antiques. Biltmore estate encompasses more than 8,000 acres including renowned gardens designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American landscape architecture.
Today, Biltmore has grown to include Antler Hill Village—a 15-acre setting with exhibits, shops, dining, outdoor activities, and daily entertainment that reflects a less-formal side of the estate. Antler Hill Village features our Biltmore Winery—the most-visited winery in the United States, which produces approximately 170,000 cases of award-winning wines each year—as well as Antler Hill Farm, which showcases our agricultural heritage. Our guests can enjoy a relaxing stay at our four-star Inn on Biltmore Estate, the only hotel on the property, featuring luxurious treatments and services within The Spa. On and off
the property, guests and consumers can connect with a wide variety of decorative accents and home products from Biltmore For Your Home, the company’s licensed products division.
With 1,800 jobs, Biltmore is one of the largest employers in the community and has an enormous economic impact on the region, as well.
