Biltmore is Asheville's crown jewel. The home and estate were created by George Vanderbilt in 1895 as a retreat. The 250-room Biltmore House features four acres of floor space to help it earn the title of the largest private home in America. The view above is what you'll see when you approach the entrance to the house.

Take the Lagoon Trail to see one of the most special and beloved views of Biltmore House. This tucked away trail is alongside the French Broad River on the way from the house to Antler Hill Village Winery, America's most visited winery. The trail is mostly flat and paved. If the conditions are right, you may just see the west side of Biltmore House reflected in the blue water of the Lagoon!

The Bass Pond is a relatively easy stroll from the gardens and it's worth the peaceful walk. When you reach the pond, one of the first things you'll notice is the Boat House, a great spot to sit and relax. Another feature is the iconic brick bridge over the pond. The bridge was featured in the film Last of the Mohicans when two central characters rode across it in a horse-drawn carriage. Below the Bass Pond you'll find a small waterfall.
