Biltmore House

Biltmore House

I am running out of time today, unfortunately, so I don't have time to write about the lovely Biltmore House and its absolutely amazing gardens.  I could wax on poetically about the tulips and azaleas that produce ribbons of color in the spring Festival of Flowers.  But, no time today.  So, instead, please enjoy these photos of Biltmore and rest assured that it is one of the most beautiful gardens we have ever seen and well worth the trip to Asheville.  (Actually, you should go to Asheville anyway - it's one of our favorite cities in the United States with hikes, walks, gardens, and restaurants to make the mind reel.)

Details

Admission to the Biltmore Estate is a pricey $40 but you can easily spend a full day wandering through the gardens, the largest private residence in America, and the winery tour.  We spent a month in Asheville and bought the annual pass so that we could take Chewy and Abby with us on walks and through the gardens.  The Festival of Flowers runs every year between April and May and is well worth seeing, though we recommend visiting on a weekday if possible, because the crowds can get quite intense on the weekends.

Having been to Butchart Garden and Longwood Garden, I was put off by the pricey admission. Was it worth it?

Biltmore was absolutely worth it! It is expensive but you also get admission to the wonderful house and winery. You can easily spend a full day there and there's a lot to see and do, plus if you like walking or hiking, there are great walks through the woods at the Biltmore.

You are so talented! Thanks for the photos. Love flowers and color -- you captured them beautifully. My plans this summer include visiting the Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn, NY.

Thanks so much Charu! I've heard that the Brooklyn garden is stunning.

Those pictures are so beautiful!! I just did a little post on an estate in New York, which everyone said reminded them of Biltmore. They were right!
