The Biltmore Company doesn't need to build more. It oversees the Biltmore Estate, which includes the 250-room home (the largest privately owned in the US), as well as two hotels, a winery, restaurants and retail shops, and licensing rights for a line of home decor products. (Guests don't stay at the Biltmore House, but at the Inn on Biltmore Estate.) Some one million visitors tour the home and grounds each year. The house sits on 8,000 acres of land and encompasses four acres of floor space. It has 35 bedrooms, some 40 bathrooms, 65 fireplaces, and three kitchens. The Biltmore is family-owned by descendants of the Vanderbilts, and is one of the few National Historic Landmarks that is entirely privately funded.
