The folks at the Biltmore Estate have made it easier for us at Inn on Main Street to arrange Candlelight Christmas Tour tickets for our guests visiting the famous Biltmore House. We already offer two-day daytime tickets for less money than the cost for a one-day pass at the Biltmore gate. But if we wanted to get reserved Christmas Candlelight Evening tickets for our guests in the past, we would have to order them the same way you do over the phone, then pick them up and add on a surcharge to cover our costs.
This year, for the first time, we can bypass that cumbersome system and order our guests’ tickets through group sales. That saves us time and money, and we can pass the savings along.
Our two-day daytime tickets during the holiday season cost $53 each. Compare that to $55 to $59 at the gate for one-day tickets. To upgrade your two-day ticket to include a reserved Candlelight Christmas tour, add $20 per ticket, for a total cost of $73 per ticket. Compare that to $78 at the gate for a single daytime visit with candlelight tour.
If you aren’t sure you want to take the candlelight Christmas tour, you can upgrade your ticket yourself during one of your daytime visits if evening tour slots still exist. But be aware that most of the popular dates sell out early.
