The Biltmore Estate

Going from one nature-made, national treasure, to a man-made one, let’s move on to Asheville, North Carolina, home to one of the greatest homes in America. The historic vacation house of the Vanderbilt’s. The Biltmore Estate covers some 8,000 acres on the south side of Asheville. This unbelievable French Renaissance-style mansion, built in 1895, contains some 250 rooms and includes a palm court and bowling alley. The name Biltmore derives from “Bildt,” Vanderbilt’s ancestors’ place of origin in Holland, and “More,” Anglo-Saxon for open, rolling land. A visit to this amazing American home is most definitely deserving of a spot on anyone’s bucket list. And it’s not just the home and gardens that will keep you and your family entertained. There’s an entire outdoor adventure area to the west of the mansion that the whole family can enjoy. For those with the means, overlooking the area is the Inn on Biltmore Estate. A beautiful, Forbes Travel Guide, four-star hotel that treats its visitors to the same level of service to which the Vanderbilts treated their guests.
