Oddly enough, tickets are already selling quickly for the Biltmore Estate’s Candlelight Christmas tours.
The tours are by reservation only. They’re always popular, but it’s unusual to hear of the reserved time slots filling well before leaf season has begun in the Western North Carolina mountains. Folks are catching the holiday spirit early, I guess.
At Inn on Main Street bed and breakfast in Weaverville, we offer our guests discount tickets to Asheville‘s most popular attraction, with a nominal add-on for the Christmas tickets. We take care of the reservations and pick your tickets up in advance so they’re waiting in your room. No handling fee, no standing in lines at the Biltmore welcome center.
Our discount two-day tickets cost $55 each, with an additional $20 for a Christmas Candlelight upgrade. To put that into perspective, the gate price for Candlelight Christmas tickets at the Biltmore cost $69 to $79, and do not include a daytime visit at all.
Candlelight Christmas tours are held nightly between Nov. 9 and Dec. 31 except Nov. 20 and 22, and Dec. 24 and 25. Earliest tour time is 5:30. Daytime tours do not require reservations, and are offered daily.
