BILTMORE ESTATE IS THE LARGEST MANSION IN THE UNITED STATES

Biltmore Estate is a Destination Attraction

While booking a luxury cabin rental in the Smoky Mountains, I do recommend visiting the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.  You can be there in a little over an hour.  The Biltmore estate was built by the Vanderbilts in the 19th Century.  It is truly a remarkable home with incredible gardens, wonderful dining, & intriguing American history.  Feel free to plan your lodging in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, while spending one day in Asheville at Biltmore.  You'll want to stay in the Smoky Mountains because most of your other itenary will be completed in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge.  Your family will want to travel to the Smoky Mountain National Park, Aquarium of the Smokies, Ober Gatlinburg, Dollywood, et cetera.
