  • Am I required to wear a face covering?

    Per current CDC guidance and the latest Buncombe County mandate, the use of face coverings indoors and while on estate shuttles is required for all Biltmore employees and guests at least 5 years of age, regardless of vaccination status.

    We greatly appreciate your kindness and understanding as we follow safety requirements.

    We offer complimentary shuttle service to Biltmore House from parking lots C, D, and E only when lots A and B (walking distance lots) are full.

    Complimentary shuttle service from Biltmore House to the Conservatory in the Walled Garden is available April through October.
