George Vanderbilt's vision for the Biltmore Estate more than 100 years ago was that it become a working estate that would sustain itself and benefit the community. It would also be a country retreat for Biltmore friends and family. The estate encompasses acres of gardens, park lands, farms, and managed forests.
