Among many other responsibilities, Curator of Interpretation Leslie Klingner helps develop and manage our special exhibitions. On her desk, a catalog of mannequins for next year's exhibition, "Fashionable Romance: Wedding Gowns in Film." You’d be surprised what a difference a pose makes in bringing clothing to life!

Today, you can still visit the many sites the Vanderbilts’ went to in 1901 including Looking Glass Rock, Sliding Rock and Looking Glass Falls.

Read our blog to learn more about their adventures in Pisgah National Forest! 
Summertime in the mountains brings to mind thoughts of hiking trails, wading in clear creeks, and visiting a waterfall or two—sometimes all on the same excursion. Just as many of us do today, George Vanderbilt and his friends often found the lush forests of Western North Carolina calling their names. They frequently headed out for multi-day trips to explore the beauty of Pisgah Forest, according to information gathered by Lori Garst, Curatorial A...

In 1920, Pisgah National Forest was officially dedicated to Mr. Vanderbilt. Eagle Scout candidate Levi Smith recently helped preserve that memory and an important part of Biltmore history.

1. No photograph inside the house 2. Slow moving crowd because of the photograph session which many will not be interested 3. Just 2 floors and basement. Nothing will blow your mind off. Only from outside it looks good 4 .Ticket is way too priced. I don't mind spending any amount for a nice experience but this isn't worth it 5. You will only get negative feeling looking at this place. The feeling someone else got really lucky and we can't afford that. We are just making someone more rich by visiting this place. Overall, I hated it

Beautiful historical site. Horrible staff. They make it extremely difficult for people with disabilities and families with strollers. I especially feel bad for people with mobility issues. They have to pay the same price as everyone else but can only see half the house. We had a bad experience when we brought our stroller. We got to an area on the second floor where we couldn't turn the stroller around and there were stairs leading up to the next area. We saw an assistant take another family down another hallway to get out and we thought we could follow to get out of there but the lady yelled at us for not waiting on her. There was no sign indicating what we should do if we couldn't go up the stairs. The attendant's name was Shelley and she was horrible. The parking situation is difficult too because the buses are not equipped well for strollers or wheelchairs. I had been looking forward to this trip all summer and was so bummed once we got there. They really need to work on their efforts to include all people. It's very expensive. Probably a perfect trip for people who are going to propose and have a lot of money to blow. It's a beautiful house but while you're there, you start to think about all of the better uses all of that money could have been used for. Like helping our fellow man.

Inn on Biltmore Estate; I would give ✭✭✭✭✭. From the time we arrived until we left the hotel, everyone was very friendly and courteous. Food at the hotel is just exceptional; everywhere we eat, they were just delicious. We did not have to go outside the Estate once for any meal. It was just relaxing time when we were there. I would highly recommend the hotel if you want peaceful and relaxing time from your everyday busy life. I cannot wait till my next visit to Inn on Biltmore Estate for some relaxing time. My family loved it. I hope this help you!

My fiance, myself and our photographer traveled to the Biltmore Estate for an engagement photo session from out of town. The website states the house is open from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and that the gardens are open from 9:00 a.m. - dusk. We were instructed by an employee via email to arrive after 3:00 p.m. We arrived at roughly 6:00 p.m. Unbeknownst to us, the only way into the gardens is through the main gate which closes at 5:00 p.m. At the gate, a security guard scanned our tickets, effectively making them non-refundable. Within minutes we realized we were not going to get what we came for, nor were we going to be refunded admission. We realize the fault may partially be ours for not asking the proper questions beforehand, however the website should certainly be updated to properly reflect that the gardens are open but not accessible after 5:00 p.m. Beautiful location, but fairly poor customer service in our situation.

Exploitation of history. Exploitation of natural landscape. Desperate money grabbing tourism business. And it's boring and the wine is crap.

After having traveled to western North Carolina for years, my husband and I finally made it to Biltmore with 3 of our children. On a Wednesday, it was crowded and hot, but worth the visit, especially in view of the fact that our children went free with us. For the history conscious adult, it reminded us of Ellis Island in that there is SO MUCH information to garner from a visit that it could easily use a whole day. There were some children younger than ours on tour, but in some cases, it may be necessary to bribe them with a trip to Carowinds or Dollywood to help make the visit better for the adults. The gardens were interesting as well, but the winery was best. ALL of the staff we spoke with or asked questions of were top-notch caliber and eager to please and inform. An all-around great visit to one of North Carolina's best known and best loved attractions.

What a great tour of an incredible property. The staff is very knowledgeable They are accommodating and helpful. If possible, you should see the Hearst castle before you visit the Biltmore -- otherwise your tour of the Hearst property will be very disappointing. This is one of those locations that should be on your "bucket list".

A waste of time and money! The wine sucks. The Thomas Wolfe house and Carl Sandburg's home were much more interesting. Take the trolley tour of Asheville, and go see the "cottages" of the filthy rich in Newport, Rhode Island. Tickets are more reasonable for the Newport Mansions, and there are good restaurants near by.
