Spring at the Biltmore Estate


The Biltmore Estate is beautiful at any time of the year, but Spring is spectacular! Stroll 2.5 miles of paths in manicured gardens with early flowering shrubs and trees, forsythia, spirea, magnolia, and flowering cherries. The famous Tulip gardens peak in April. The spring bulbs, dogwoods, and redbuds are followed by poppies, snapdragons, and pansies. The azaleas peak around the first week of May. Stroll through acres of formal and informal gardens, the Walled Garden and the Winery beds. Explore the Biltmore Estate grounds and hike lush green forests and the open meadows of Deer Park.

Visit the Biltmore House. Take as much time as you would like exploring three floors of vintage clothing, accessories, art and furniture on a self-paced, self-guided tour. See original art by Pierre-Auguste Renoir and John Singer Sargent the way it was lived with by George and Edith Vanderbilt. The basement includes an exhibit on the history and innovative construction methods of the Biltmore House.

There are so many adventures on the 8,000-acre Biltmore Estate Grounds!  Stroll through acres of formal and informal gardens, the Walled Garden and the Winery beds. Enjoy 22 miles of hiking trails, along the French Broad River, through lush forests, or the open meadows of Deer Park.  View Biltmore’s wonderful scenery on a wagon ride* drawn by Belgian draft horses. Explore miles of bike trails, a paved trail along the French Broad River and more challenging woodland trails. Bike rentals* are available or bring your own bike.  Segway Tours, Guided Raft Trips and Kayak rentals are also available!*

The Estate also offers a variety of other Classes, Lessons and Clinics.* Take an off-road driving lesson, then take off in a Land Rover to explore.

A high-quality Caesar Guerini or Fabarm shotgun is provided. Biltmore is an Orvis Endorsed Fly-Fishing School with Fly-Fishing Lesson for all skill levels or a guided fly-fishing float trip on the French Broad River for smallmouth bass.
