Biltmore Estate

The Biltmore Estate, the largest privately owned home in America, is a must-see. This 250-room castle has original furniture and artifacts from the turn-of-the-century life of the Vanderbilt family. George Vanderbilt’s mansion was both opulent and innovative for its period and to this day remains unique.
