A Word From Bill Cecil
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Biltmore.
What began in 1895 as my great-grandfather's estate continues to be an amazing experience for today's visitors. At its core, Biltmore will always have the natural beauty of the mountains as well as the majestic house and gardens to inspire us and allow us to escape from the every day.
Biltmore is still family-owned, and we are passionate about our mission of preservation through self-sufficiency—a philosophy embraced before the first stone was ever put in place.
We remain self-sustaining through innovation, creative thinking, and listening to our guests who continue to tell us they want more ways to connect with Biltmore. Wine was our first foray into offering a taste of Biltmore. Now, you can experience life as a Vanderbilt guest at our Inn on Biltmore Estate. You can also inspire your own surroundings with a line of home furnishings, decorative accessories, home building products, and live plants.
And so, full circle, we're all about home—welcoming and celebrating family and friends—and extending the spirit of Biltmore beyond our 8,000 acres.
It was true in 1895 and it remains true today.
