    We decided on a quick visit to the Biltmore Estate gardens in Asheville NC to witness the ever-changing blooming gardens and happened upon delicious music floating on the air in the greenhouse Conservatory.  Rounding the corner, we discovered two musicians playing the most pleasing, ethereal music just perfect for the heavenly floral setting!  It is called “Musical Performances in the Walled Garden” and the hours are from 11:30 AM for half hour intervals until 4PM during most of May.  We visit year-round and are always surprised and delighted with all the extra special touches visitors receive.  Thanks, Biltmore Estate!

    If you are visiting the mountains for your vacation (after all, beach vacations get to be quite boring!), we welcome you to stay at one of our luxury vacation rental cottages, chalets or homes.  Expect to be outrageously spoiled at our homes with all our fabulous amenities!  We are also authorized ticket distributors for the Biltmore and we sell our tickets at a discount and they are good for two full consecutive days!

    Be sure to allow plenty of time to explore the exquisite grounds surrounding the Biltmore House in Asheville NC.  There are acres of winding walkways and trails through the natural and formal gardens of flowers, shrubs and trees.  Colorful blooms can be seen throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons. 

    In the center of the gardens, displayed like a diamond on a ring, is the beautiful, fully restored (after 2 years & 2.5 million dollars spent), glass-roofed Conservatory with a fabulous collection of tropical plants.  Designed by the world famous architect Richard Morris Hunt and preserved to its original grandeur, the Conservatory supplies the mansion with fresh flowers and plants.  Stroll through the various hot and cool houses to experience this extensive plant collection.  Downstairs you’ll find a delightful gift and plant store to take home your own collection of garden decorations and plants.  There’s even a wine and sandwich cart to serve you while you sit in a nearby bench to enjoy the gardens. 

    To the front of the Conservatory is the formal Walled Garden planted each season with a planned symmetry of colorful annual flowers and award-winning rose bushes.  Down the center of this Garden leading to the Conservatory are several long arbors adorned with vines and flowers.  

    In order to enjoy the full experience of the Biltmore House AND the exquisite grounds and activities offered, we advise spending two days on the Estate.  As authorized ticket partners, we are able to sell you DISCOUNTED Biltmore Estate tickets good for TWO CONSECUTIVE DAYS for less than their one day entry price.  Contact us at www.AshevilleVacationHomes.com or email at joyah@aol.com or call us at 828-274-9777.
