Average Reviews



Stroll through the 30 acres of formal and informal gardens next to Biltmore House. These gardens were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the best landscape architect in the United States. After visiting the house, stroll a mile through one of the best gardens in the south. You can also stop at various points on the way from the house to Antler Hill Village and Winery. See the bloom calendar on the Biltmore website.

Italian garden. The Italian garden adjacent to the House of Biltmore offers a view of the lily pool in the atmosphere of the Palace of Versailles in France. Carp and goldfish swim in three pools, as well as various aquatic plants such as water lilies, elephant ears and papyrus. In the aerial photo at the beginning, it is to the left of the former loan.

Shrub garden. The road through the four acre shrub garden (leading to the walled garden) is a picturesque landscape with hundreds of ornamental shrubs and beautiful trees. The wisteria-covered pergola features a relaxing bench.

An enclosed garden. There are 75,000 tulips in the spring, colorful annuals in the summer and mums in the fall – this is the center of the garden and the flowers of the four seasons are in full bloom. Around the vine-covered trees, there are themed areas like a butterfly garden, white border, scented border, and Victoria border.

Rose garden. At the bottom of the walled garden you will find 50 roses planted in the late 19th century, as well as modern varieties and all-American roses. You can also see traditional garden structures, such as Maypole and double arches, surrounded by 2,000 roses, planted in the same way that the Vanderbilt family lived in Biltmore.

Conservatory. Designed by Biltmore House architect Richard Morris Hunt, the glass-roofed greenhouse travels through the tropical wonderland all year round. Located in the fenced garden, adjacent to the rose garden.
