Christmas Magic at the Biltmore Estate
Each holiday season, the Biltmore House honors a tradition George Vanderbilt started on Christmas Eve in 1895 when he first invited guests to enjoy the splendor of his home during the holidays. The Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina opens its doors for Christmas at Biltmore Estate and Candlelight Christmas Evenings from mid-November through the end of the year. Please check back during holiday season for 2013 dates.
Featuring dozens of tastefully decorated trees, wreaths, garland, ribbons, and thousands of lights adorning the house and grounds, Candlelight Christmas Evenings transforms the already magnificent estate into a spectacular holiday event. It is also the only time of the year that the house is open to visitors at night.
Daytime access to Christmas at Biltmore includes the Biltmore House, Gardens, Winery (complementary guided tours and wine tastings are offered), and Antler Hill Village, where Santa and Mrs. Claus can be found each weekend. Holiday decorating seminars are offered during the day as well. Lodging and dining is available on the estate grounds and around
