Who could not visit this place and not dream of what it would be like to live there? The grounds are worth a visit by themselves. The mansion is so moving it is like visiting a European castle. The area is full of family friendly...More

I liked touring this one of the 1st ever built mansions of this size. It's hard to conceive that one man in his 30's built this huge home and then found a wife and had a child. A must see if you are in Asheville.

We bought tickets for just one day, but we had such a great day that we decided to upgrade our tickets to season/year-long passes. We definitely plan to return a couple more times this year.

Better to get there when first opens for christmas, usually in November. Its usually little warmer then and you can enjoy the grounds. Also beautiful in Spring when everything is blooming.

The rooms are unbelievably immense..... the furniture, and decor ornate. One of the few places in America that you can feel as though you are in a castle. The grounds/gardens are beautiful. It has become quite touristy since I visited as a much younger person,...More

Walk through the house and feel as though you are in another country, stay for dinner in one of the restaurants on the Estate grounds - great place to spend the day if you are in Asheville

We personally love the grounds--especially when blooming in spring--but the mansion is one of the all time greats of the era so you must see it if you're in Asheville. Christmas is a great time because they do it up royally. Hot Tip: Go AFTER...More
