Each year, Inn on Main Street partners with the Biltmore Estate to obtain Candlelight Christmas Evening tickets for our guests. It’s gotten much easier the past couple of years because the reserved-time Christmas Candlelight tour tickets are simply an upgrade added to our regular two-day tickets. For only $20, visitors can add the mystical evening tour, complete with live music and special lighting, to the fact-filled daytime visits, which cost $55. And several of our guests have done so already. We pick up the tickets and have them waiting in guests’ rooms so they don’t get bogged down at the ticket center.
This year, the Biltmore has added several attractions, particularly highlighting new additions at the farm and Antler Hill Village. They offer daily seminars on making Christmas wreaths at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and candle rings at 1 and 3 p.m. at A Gardener’s Place. At the barn, see live music at 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 p.m. Santa will be hanging out there from 12:30 to 4:30. In the Legacy Theater nearby, storytellers entertain at 4 and 6 p.m. On weekends, hear live music at the winery from 3:30 to 7 p.m. At the conservatory this month will be a special display of Christmas plants.
So much to see, so little time.
