George Vanderbilt first opened Biltmore, his magnificent private estate, to family and friends on Christmas Eve 1895. Today, his descendants continue welcoming guests with that same spirit of gracious hospitality.

Biltmore is still an oasis from the cares of the world—and our limited-time offer to save $90 on a new Annual Pass means there’s no better time to purchase your own! 

From the spacious halls of America’s Largest Home® to our historic gardens, grounds, and 8,000-acre Blue Ridge Mountain backyard, your Annual Pass provides all the exclusive benefits we reserve solely for our Passholders. 

As you explore the renowned architecture of America’s Largest Home, you’ll discover treasures collected from around the world including priceless art, furnishings and tapestries.

 Biltmore House is not just a showcase for George Vanderbilt’s collections, however; it is also an extraordinary family home that reflects the height of late 19th century Gilded Age style. Designed by Richard Morris Hunt, the foremost architect in the world at that time, Biltmore is the culmination of his vision and design that continues to inspire guests today.

The estate’s glorious grounds were planned by Frederick Law Olmsted. Known as the father of American landscape architecture, Olmsted designed Biltmore’s spectacular setting with formal and informal gardens, open woodland meadows, and acres of managed forests that stretch away on all sides.

Annual Passholders can explore Olmsted’s living masterpiece, including miles of trails across Biltmore’s 8,000-acre backyard. Every season transforms the property as visitors enjoy leaf-peeping in fall, frosty winter weather, grand blooms of spring and the lush greenery of summer. 

With the purchase of your Biltmore Annual Pass, you can bring your children 16 and younger with you for free, enjoy special savings on dining, shopping, overnight stays, and much more. In addition, your Pass purchase helps support Biltmore’s mission to preserve this National Historic Landmark for future generations to enjoy.

  • Hello, we are considering the purchase of an annual pass for 2023. Years ago, we enjoyed our annual pass, and we were able to bring out of town family members at different times throughout the year. I didn't see the prices for an annual pass for 2023 so I need that information. We have a 17 year old daughter still at home, so I assume we would have to pay an adult rate for her each time we visit? Also, my husband and I would each need an annual pass?
