Our Romantic Getaway to Biltmore

06
20

As I’m writing this, I’m reliving our time at Biltmore whilst thinking through my calendar for the rest of the year to see if we can get back there for another getaway. I’ll never be able to do it justice with a post, but I hope the beautiful photos and stories of our stay are enough to inspire you to visit.
Biltmore is so much more than a castle on a hill. The estate includes restaurants, a winery, multiple places to stay, miles of trails for walking or horseback riding, and adventure tours as well as behind-the-scenes house tours. On top of all there is to do and see, the gorgeous setting of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina, makes it even better. It’s truly a wonderful mix of a relaxing, slow-paced, romantic getaway spot, while also being fun and exciting.

We arrived in the late afternoon, dropped our bags at our room at The Inn on Biltmore Estate, and headed straight downstairs to catch a shuttle over to the “Behind-the-Scenes” wine tour. Arriving at The Inn was pretty special and grabbing a quick glance at the view of the estate from our room was the beginning of the fascination we felt the entire time we were there.
The Winery tour was in Antler Hill Village, only a few minutes down the hill from The Inn. It’s a very quaint little area set up with restaurants and shopping, and great for enjoying the views. The tour allowed us to see the large containers where the wine is stored before it’s bottled, and we also learned the process involved in bottling a sparkling wine. It was pretty interesting to see the facility, the oak barrels that are shipped in from all over the world, and how the wines are set up before they head out into the shop. We tasted a few wines and I bought a few to take home.

After the tour, we needed to change for dinner. We started the trip with the finest dining experience in The Dining Room of The Inn. The service was truly outstanding and the food arrived at our table looking like a work of art.

 

The next morning we went to Biltmore House for our tour. Seeing it again reminded me of just how spectacular this home really is. The view from the backyard, the thought that the landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted put into framing the house with trees so it looked like a park but wouldn’t be blocked, and the reflecting pond at the base of the hill the house was seated on are just a few of the details that went into the production of this place. You can’t help but feel so incredibly small as you walk along the perfect lawn toward the front door.
George Vanderbilt constructed Biltmore House from 1889-1895 and lived here as a bachelor for 3 years, before he married Edith Dresser Vanderbilt, at age 33. George’s wealth was an inheritance from his grandfather, Cornelius “Commodore” Vanderbilt, who made a fortune in railroads and shipping back in the 1800s. George was referred to as “a man of leisure”, who traveled the world collecting fine-art, books, and furnishings to fill his home. 

 

As you walk through his home, you can see the detail and care in so many of the rooms. George’s personal library was enormous, with a secret entrance from the second floor so guests who stayed with him could wander down and grab a book from his collection if they desired.
There was a mixed feeling of extreme luxury and wealth with generosity and hospitality. There were large rooms on the second floor for guests to gather and relax in while they were staying there. The house conveys a clear message that it was designed for entertaining.
After our self-guided tour of Biltmore House, we ate lunch then got to experience a Rooftop Tour. We were able to see more behind the scenes in the home before we ventured out onto the roof. I’d say that a behind-the-scenes tour is completely worth it because you learn so many interesting facts about George and how he lived in his home.

We ate a casual dinner on the veranda at The Inn, looking out onto the rolling hills while watching the sunset. It was so peaceful, and the mountains provided a cool breeze that was much enjoyed by Justin and I.

The following morning we explored the grounds on Outriders, electric, off-road tricycles that can reach about 20 mph. Not only was it so much fun, especially when we got to hit the “turbo mode” button, but it was a wonderful way to experience the trails and vast surroundings of Biltmore’s 8,000-acre estate. I imagined being a guest at the home back in the early 1900s. We’d probably be on horses instead of tricycles, but we’d be exploring the exact same grounds!

Of all the things we were able to experience during our stay, the tour on the Outriders was one of my favorites.
The entire estate is beautiful. It’s the perfect place to wander around and enjoy the slower pace. The food is outstanding, and the service was beyond what I could have imagined. I truly cannot recommend it enough.
Upon returning home, I told my parents that they must try to plan a visit in the fall. I, too, would love to return as I feel like we only scratched the surface of what Biltmore has to offer.

      I would love to spend a romantic evening there drinking wine while sitting and observing the view. We would take the tours and soak in the history! There would just be so much to do! We are a military family and very rarely do we get any peace in the midst of serving the country and raising our boys.

    Love your blog and instagram! Would really like to do a behind the scenes tour, and enjoy the tricycles! That era just really amazes me. To have a life of such grand surroundings…My husband and I have 17 months old twins so getting time to ourselves is kinda nonexistent between both working and the everyday hustle and bustle. A little getaway would be just awesome!

    Growing up my Daddy always had a fascination with the Biltmore Estate and most years he would buy season passes so we could enjoy it all year long. My favorite time to visit was always Christmas because it’s so elegant! I’d love to try the outriders and get a different view of such a gorgeous property!

  106. Dana says

    I’d be interested in just soaking in the slower pace of life. We live in such a fast paced society and this would be something amazing to do to just slow down and take in all the views, the history, wine and food.

  107. Emily Lewis says

    I would love to be able to do a daytime tour and see the beautiful house, and also the winery tour! The last time I went to Biltmore was before I turned 21 and was for my honeymoon. I would love to go back to reminisce it all!

  108. Lindsay B says
    Posted June 20, 2019

    I’ve been wanting to come here for so long! We’re expecting our first baby in the next month and a half 😳, and this would be a great place for us to visit and have a “date day” post baby. My hubby’s parents live not too far from here in SC. So maybe baby girl can hang with the Grands while mom and dad explore and check out that wine tour!!

  109. Becca says

    My husband and I would love the Outriders tour of the grounds! It sounds so fun! We went to Asheville once and LOVED it but never got to go to the Biltmore because our toddlers were in tow!

    The Rooftop tour sounds amazing! I have been before but I would love to go and see it from a different view. I actually took a business class in grad school and one of our guest speakers was Bill Cecil, Jr. I really enjoyed hearing about how The Biltmore Co. is one of the largest employers in Western Carolina. From it’s inception, Biltmore has supported and employed the surrounding community.

    I’ve been before on the self-guided tour but I’d love to go back and bring my kids, especially in the fall! Sky top orchards is one of my favorites so we could make a weekend out of it and enjoy the fall foliage! Asheville has a special place in my heart because my husband proposed during a stay at the Grove Park Inn!

  124. Jessica Guillemette says

    This came at the best timing since my husband and I will be celebrating our 9th year wedding anniversary there in less than a month!

If we get the opportunity to go, just being able to see the beauty that is the Biltmore House would be enough of a reason… 🙂 We’d love to see how sparkling wine is made, DEFINITELY visit the library, enjoy some delicious cuisine, and most importantly, spend precious time together!

    Thanks for giving your followers this wonderful opportunity! You’re so sweet and I love following you!

    My husband and I visited England a couple of years ago (he’s British, and always wanted to take me, but with kids it just never worked out), and one of our very favorite things about England was visiting the castles, occupied and unoccupied! It was so interesting going on a guided tour and hearing all of the history and just being in awe of the architecture and furnishings; Biltmore reminds me of England. We’ve always talked about visiting, I had no idea how grand it is!

    I have been wanting to go here for years. Our kids were little when we were there 10 years ago for a family reunion in NC and we are having another reunion in a week, so now that they are older and can appreciate the house we are going to see it. 😃🎉. I can’t wait! But what I really want is my husband and I to go on our own for a romantic trip. I also told my mom and dad last week that they should take a Romantic trip there themselves. They never go anywhere and are always doing for me and my sisters and never themselves. My mom is the most selfless women and I would love to give her these tickets. Anyways… Thanks so much for telling us about your trip there. It makes me want to go even more 💕

    I’ve been to Biltmore 3 times – and ate lunch in a horse stall at the Carriage House just like you guys did! But I’ve never seen much more than the main house complex. I’ve always been for the Christmas Candlelight tours. I’d love to go back in the spring or fall and see more of the trails & grounds! That looks fun!

    I’ve never been to The Biltmore but would be the perfect Babymoon for me and the hubby! We’re expecting our second baby, a boy, on August 5th. Our first son was born right around the time that Emily arrived, on May 1st 2018. I’d love to go on the wine tour and buy a bottle that we can open after the baby arrives to celebrate our expanding family!

We have a 10 and 5 year old and have not been on a romantic getaway since before the kids were born (I’m serious). This looks like a perfect place to get away from it all and re-connect.

    My daughter lived in Charlotte for six months on a residency program. During that time, I drove through Asheville (from Indiana) many times on my way to visit her. Every time I did, I promised myself that we needed to visit Biltmore before her residency ended. Sadly, time got the best of us and it never happened. She and her husband had to live apart for two years during her training and now are settled within a four hour drive of Biltmore. I would love to surprise them with tickets for their anniversary! They love gardening together so I think they’d adore seeing the grounds and gardens.

  506. Posted June 20, 2019

    This post couldn’t have come at a better time! My husband and I are currently trying to plan our 10th wedding anniversary trip and would love to go to Biltmore! Even if we don’t win the passes this will definitely go on our short list!

    It would be amazing to win tickets to visit this beautiful home. I’ve read all about the Vanderbilt family for years. It’s very interesting how they came into their wealth. It was rather quick. I would love to explore the gardens and the winery. Asheville is absolutely stunning. 🤞🏻

  591. Posted June 20, 2019

    Hi Kate! My husband and I are planning a trip to Asheville in the fall for our first anniversary. We’d love to explore Biltmore as neither of us have been before. We’re definitely going to take your suggestion and try out those electric tricycles. Other than that, we’re hoping for a getaway filled with yummy food, pretty fall leaves, and rest and relaxation 😊

    If you happen to live close to the Biltmore House then the year long annual pass is a must. You will come to realize Mr. Vanderbilt brought together more than a million pieces of history from all over the world and appreciating just a fraction takes dozens of visits. But the greatest treasures at Biltmore are the staff members, many who are descendants of the original staff. Each visitor is treated like a special guest and they love sharing the magic you find in the details of the Biltmore House and its history..

    I live about 2 hrs away from biltmore but have never been. Ive always talked to my husband about doing a romantic getaway to biltmore. After almost 20 years together weve only took 2 short 3 day trips away by ourselves from our girls. So I would love everything about the trip , time with my husband plus all the history and beauty to be seen.

    Hi Kate! It sounds like you had an amazing trip at the Biltmore. If I had the opportunity to go to the Biltmore I would love to tour the grounds outside. I am sure they are absolutely stunning. The library would also be super exciting to see. I would feel like Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

  745. Nicole says
    Posted June 21, 2019

    Growing up in NC, I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to the Biltmore but never got around to it before I moved to SC. My parents love it and have been several times. If we got the chance to go, I’d love to try the Rooftop Tour. I am fascinated by how such an amazing house was built so long ago and my history teaching husband would love all the behind the scenes info as well. Looks like an amazing trip!

    Posted June 23, 2019

    After I graduated from college and got my first “big girl” job, I met one of my first co workers and we quickly became friends. My last name is Harrington and he would sometimes tease me and say that I was a “Biltmore” because I would insist on things being done a certain way. The reference of anything proper being referred to as a Biltmore stuck and now 12 years later, even though we aren’t colleagues anymore the joke remains. Clearly from your experience you would agree that using the term Biltmore is nothing but compliment!

If we win this we would be up for anything! All of your adventures sounded amazing so we would be thrilled to do any of them! We’ve been married for 14 years and have twin daughters who are seven and a 4 year old son. My husband is an air traffic controller who works very hard, been working 6 days a week with overtimes, on top of helping to take care of our kids and so on! We rarely have the time to splurge and do anything for ourselves. This would be a dream vacation getaway for us and I would be so very grateful! Thank you for this chance!!!

    My husband and i do an east coast road trip each December on out way to Sanibel FL for our annual week vacation there. each year we stop in one place for a few days, and this year I’m adding the Biltmore to my list. Last year we went to Palmetto Bluff per your recommendations over the years and it did not disappoint! I can’t wait to go check it out, especially since we go 2 weeks before Christmas so it will be decorated and we plan to do the candle light tour! Thanks!!!

    I would love to see the Biltmore grounds on the Outriders! It is such a fascinating place!

    I’m obsessed with Biltmore! We’ve been there twice but years ago. The blackberry lemonade in the stable gift shop is to die for!

    Kate, you HAVE to go back and do the Candlelight Christmas sometime! It is breathtaking! The trees, the music, the decorations and if you get lucky, a pretty snowfall!

    My son would like to propose to his fiancé at Biltmore. We are trying to come up with the “fairytale story proposal”. My future daughter in law and I have season passes and love to visit. Can you help my son and I create her perfect moment?
