[Tagging] correct access tagging for tourist attraction

we were using the old skobbler app to get us to the biltmore estate in
Ashville, NC today, and an issue came up with access tagging. specifically,
there are multiple roads that can access biltmore but only one official 
entrance.
the current tagging in OSM labels all the roads as private, with the 
result that
an OSM based GPS app can't distinguish what the correct roads to use
actually are. we ended up at the wrong entrance.

i'm pondering how to tag to distinguish between the preferred private and
the ones that aren't supposed to be used. any suggestions?
