Busy Days & Biltmore House Reservations
Your self-guided visit of Biltmore House may require a reservation on designated busy days. We recommend making your reservation in advance when booking online or by phone at 800-411-3812.
Guests who arrive without a reservation cannot be guaranteed entry into Biltmore House on a busy day. If you arrive without a reservation, please see Guest Services to the right of Biltmore House. This complimentary service allows you to better plan your estate visit. You may enter the estate when it opens (view estate hours) and enjoy all that Biltmore has to offer. Please present your ticket or Twelve-Month Pass at the front door of Biltmore House.
For the best experience, we recommend avoiding designated busy days, when Biltmore House has limited capacity.
