America’s Largest Home gets Ready for the Holidays
The delivery of a towering 35-foot Fraser fir tree at America’s Largest Home was the finishing touch after weeks of decorating Biltmore House for the holidays. Christmas at Biltmore, the estate’s holiday celebration, begins Friday, Nov. 4, 2022 and runs through Jan. 8, 2023.
The 35-foot Banquet Hall tree is Christmas at Biltmore’s star attraction. It took more than 50 staff members to hoist the tree onto their shoulders and carry it into the Banquet Hall, where a system of ropes secured the tree in place.
Throughout 2022, Biltmore has been part of the national celebration of the 200th birthday of Frederick Law Olmsted, the estate’s landscape architect. Biltmore’s team of designers planned décor around a “Winter Landscapes” theme that brings the outdoors inside and honors Olmsted’s grand achievements.
Décor in Biltmore House includes 67 hand-decorated Christmas trees, more than 14,000 ornaments, 45,000 holiday lights, 250 candles, 1,000 feet of garland, and 150 traditional poinsettias.
Two Christmas experiences at Biltmore
Holiday packages are offered at the luxurious Four-star Inn on Biltmore Estate and at the cozy Village Hotel, both decked out for the holidays. Historic cottages from Biltmore’s agricultural past accommodate overnight guests too.
