Biltmore Estate

America’s Largest Home, built by George and Edith Vanderbilt 1895 in Asheville, North Carolina.  We spent several hours there on a self-guided tour that brought us up the first three levels and the basement. The house was all decked out for Christmas, and at least one Christmas tree in every room. Specialty tours are available all the way up to the roof for an additional fee. Then we were free to wander around the grounds at our leisure. Fascinating.  I took a ton of pictures, here are a few:

  2. The Biltmore Estate is spectacular on a regular day but the Christmas decorations take it over the top! Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos! When we were there several years ago indoor photography was not allowed.
