No American home has come close to rivaling the size and splendor of the Biltmore Estate, which was completed in 1895 and is still owned by descendants of George Vanderbilt. Encompassing 178,926 square feet and surrounded by 125,000 acres of park-like grounds, the home is filled with antique and modern treasures, including works of art by Renoir, 16th century tapestries, a library containing 10,000 volumes, and historic furnishings. There are three upscale hotels on the estate grounds, and the home itself is open for self-guided tours. If you can’t make it to North Carolina, you can catch glimpses of the Biltmore Estate in many movies, including "Forrest Gump," "The Last of the Mohicans," "Hannibal," and the series "One Tree Hill."
