Imagine enjoying a glass of fine wine while admiring the magnificent mountain views seen only from the rooftop of Biltmore House. This behind-the-scenes tour allows you the opportunity to do just that. Your experience begins with an exploration of such un-restored areas of the house as the attic, continues with stunning vantage points offered from Biltmore House’s balconies and rooftops, and ends on our rooftop deck. There you will savor a selection of passed canapés, special Biltmore vintages, and breathtaking vistas.

Meet at the Hunt fountain next to the Biltmore House Front Door at 5:15 to begin your Guided Rooftop Tour.
