The Biltmore House is America's Largest House and sits in beautiful Asheville, N.C. The house is approximately 175,000 square feet and sits on some 8,000 acres of lush green hills. Biltmore is surrounded by rolling hills and wonderful gardens all of which add to this magnificent piece of architecture. The house consists of a two-story library, a large swimming pool, a bowling alley, and countless bedrooms. The furnishings date back to the origins of the house. The entire estate acts as a museum for the famous Vanderbuilt family and the wonderment of the house. Many movies have been filmed here including Richie Rich, Hannibal, Patch Adams, and Forest Gump. In my opinion, while there is not bad time to go, the best times to go would be during the spring when then the gardens are in full bloom or the winter when it is decorated for Christmas. The site is something to behold. I am usually not a fan of guided tours, but the tour here is rather amazing and the guides can tell you the history of the house that you would not be able to know if you just walk between the rooms.
