George Vanderbilt himself loved to get out in the woods and see the estate on foot, something we welcome our guests to enjoy today, as well. .

In 1896, with the help of Richard Morris Hunt, George Vanderbilt designed a rustic, Adirondack-style retreat known as Buckspring Lodge on the slopes of Mount Pisgah, about 20-miles from Biltmore House. Family and friends would spend summer days hiking and hunting to their hearts' content. A flock of Biltmore sheep would also spend time there, providing effective "grounds maintenance" in return for their room and board. #Biltmore #History #PisgahNationalForest #Asheville 1 week ago
