Travel: Biltmore Estate Garden Tour

By Linda Waggener

We'd dreamed and talked about taking a road trip together all through the pandemic and finally, both of us fully vaccinated, my sister and I decided the time was right to head east and south.

We left Columbia in her Ford Explorer about 7am on a gray June morning. We'd planned on leaving an hour earlier but it was pouring rain with no sign of it passing on by. That rain would follow us all through our travels, leaving just enough dry periods for the stops that were important to us.



The first stop was in Asheville, North Carolina. The popular Biltmore House was our destination in that city. Their recommendation is to allow two days there, one for the home interior and one for the gardens.

We had only one day to give to Asheville so we chose the Garden Tour, needing a good long walk after the journey from Columbia.

The magic of the Biltmore Gardens is shared in accompanying pictures and will be added to from time to time.

The popular Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina was our first stop on a trip east and south from Columbia. Their recommendation is to allow two days there, one for the 178,926 square foot home interior and one for the gardens. We chose to explore the gardens and this is one of the exotic plants inside the Conservatory. At first glance, you see the whole arrangement (at left), then after doing a double take, you see the little garden within the plant (at right)

Beautiful roses outside the Conservatory at the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina. When I can't get there, I just go to the Trabue Russell House on Jamestown Street in Columbia for our own beautiful rose garden.
