Christmas comes but once a year, and if you’re looking for something special to do this holiday season, plan a trip to Biltmore Estate in Asheville! Beginning in early November, the folks at Biltmore are geared up for a very happy holiday season! Here’s what you’re in store for…
Candlelight Christmas Evenings November 12, 2010-January 1, 2011
Firelight and candlelight fill the house with a warm glow and accent delicate ornaments and priceless treasures, while the Front Lawn of Biltmore House sets the scene with a sparkling holiday illumination of evergreens bathed in thousands of twinkling lights.
Christmas at Biltmore Daytime Celebration November 5, 2010-January 2, 2011
George Vanderbilt introduced his new home to family and friends on Christmas Eve 1895 with a wonderful celebration that we continue today. Enjoy America’s largest home decorated with dozens of Christmas trees, hundreds of wreaths, bows, and poinsettias, miles of evergreen garland, and thousands of ornaments. This year, the seven-story high Banquet Hall will appear as if the Vanderbilt family has prepared for the employee Christmas festivities. Tricycles, dolls, toy furniture, books, horns, trains, hoops and tops will hang from the massive 35-foot Frasir Fir tree, with garlands of evergreens, mistletoe and shining holly dressing the Banquet Hall dining table.
Christmas at Biltmore during the daytime includes access to Biltmore House, the Gardens and Antler Hill Village and Winery. The village links to the Winery, where visitors may take a complimentary guided tour culminating with a complimentary wine tasting. You’ll also find Santa and Mrs. Claus each weekend at the Antler Hill Village Barn.
