The Yellow House on Plott Creek Road knows you’ll love walking in a winter wonderland. We are happy for our guests to experience so many fun area activities. From November 3, 2018 through January 6, 2019 guests can visit Christmas at Biltmore Estate (the largest private residence in America with 250 rooms) located (at 1 Lodge Street) in nearby Asheville, North Carolina.

Breathe in the fresh scent of the evergreens as you admire holiday décor featuring wreaths, garlands, and the sparkle of thousands of ornaments on more than 55 magnificently festive Christmas trees. In fact, no matter what time of the year, The Biltmore House and its famous Winery and Gardens feature beautiful displays.
