Christmas at Biltmore

Immerse yourself in the holiday spirit at America’s Largest Home®. The timeless beauty of Biltmore House, its collections of art and historic Vanderbilt family treasures are all the more enchanting with the festive addition of dozens of exquisitely decorated Christmas trees, miles of garland, hundreds of poinsettias, and more lights than you can count.

For a different experience of Biltmore House beautifully bedecked for the season, we invite you to delight in the joy and the wonder of Candlelight Christmas Evenings—the gentle glow of candlelight and firelight and live performances of holiday music make for a truly magical evening.
