While the winter of 2017 has been rather kind to us (just one snow day so far…and our daffodils are peeking out at the end of January… whaaaaaat!?), wintertime in the mountains of Western North Carolina can often be a teensy bit unpredictable. For those chilly days when you don’t want to go outside or you’re getting antsy for spring, we suggest a little indoor “green” therapy at Biltmore Estate’s Conservatory. Inside we go!

Of course, the Conservatory at Biltmore Estate is not a far walk from Biltmore House itself, so it makes sense to make the short stroll through the gardens to visit the house, too.
Admission tickets are required to get onto the estate, so you may as well make it a full Biltmore experience, even in winter (and don’t forget the Biltmore Winery at Antler Hill Village, also on the estate!). One plus is that ticket prices are discounted and can be purchased here at the Inn on Mill Creek. Another plus is that the crowds are generally much smaller in January and February.
