If you are looking for a getaway to a place of history, prestige, elegance, and both natural and cultured beauty, consider a visit to the Biltmore Estate. From the expansive grounds and gardens to the timeless Biltmore Village, from inspirational shopping to tours of the family mansion, the Biltmore Estate offers something for everyone.
Attractions at the Biltmore Estate
You are invited to come play in a backyard that stretches over 8000 acres of the vast Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina. Summertime activities include horseback riding, biking, Segway tours, fly fishing, and hiking, to name a few. As if this wasn’t enough, take strolls through the breathtaking gardens – a work of art harmonizing God’s amazing creation and the dominion mandate He gave to mankind.
Come inside to beautiful shops filled with gifts, keepsakes, confections, home accents, books about the Vanderbilt family and their era, old-fashioned toys and games, jewelry, and all-American arts and crafts. You are sure to find “something for everyone” at the Biltmore Estate – don’t forget to take home tangible reminders of the precious family memories you are making!
There are many special events offered at various times of the year at the Biltmore Estate, not the least of which is the first-time ever Chihuly Nights at Biltmore, a display of stunning glass art by world-renowned American artist Dale Chihuly.
Lodging for Your Vacation at the Biltmore Estate
But what about where to stay? While some prefer to stay on the Estate, others prefer finding a room in the nearby city of Asheville. But let us suggest that you visit Peachtree Cove RV Park as the place you call home during your time in WNC. We are located a beautiful 2 hours drive from the Biltmore Estate, which in itself is a self-guided tour of our beautiful region. Some may view the drive “into town” as a setback to their vacation, but at the end of a long, full day of sightseeing, it is far more attractive to get out of the city and relax in a small town that offers more of the same breathtaking views minus the dust and chaos of the city.
