Immerse Yourself in Our Historic Gardens

To design gardens and grounds as majestic as Biltmore House, George Vanderbilt hired Frederick Law Olmsted, the father of American landscape design. Today, Biltmore’s gardens and grounds are a horticultural paradise. With 8,000 acres of indoor and outdoor beauty to enjoy, from events and tours to garden-related seminars that evolve with each season, you may need more than one day to experience it all.

Featured Activity

Morning in Our Gardens

The delight of early morning birdsong, cooler temperatures, and the beauty of first light as it filters into our gardens: this peaceful experience is yours to enjoy before most daytime guests arrive. See why our stunning gardens have been included in the Top Ten Botanical Gardens of the World by Travel + Leisure.
