These photos are from our visit to the Biltmore Estate on our first full day in Asheville, NC. It would have been nice to be able to get a shot of the house without those ugly tour buses in front, but I guess that’s a good indication of just how large it is. The house is beautiful and the interior was fully decorated for Christmas (but I wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside). We walked all around the house and the grounds. The view behind the house of the mountains and river is especially stunning. I would love to wake up to that view every day!
One day I’d love to go back in the summer because the miles and miles of gardens around the house are not as pretty in November. But there is a huge green house with tons of exotic flowers which was fun to walk around in. I went a little crazy in there so I’ll have a separate post on Thursday with those photos.
