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.
