This past weekend for our little getaway we went to The Biltmore! We had been to the Biltmore last year in the fall; that was our first time and we loved it! But we have been wanting to see this incredible house decorated for Christmas, so Caleb took Friday off and we spent the day in Asheville. The weather wasn't great, but since we were inside touring the house most of the time the rain wasn't a big deal.
The decorations did not disappoint: there was a Christmas tree in almost every room we toured (we saw 43 of the 250!), and the Christmas tree in the dining room was the most spectacular of all - 40 feet high! There was also a gingerbread replica of the house in the kitchen; the details were impeccable! The house wasn't crowded at all, so at times Caleb and I were the only ones walking down the hallways or looking in the rooms. You're not allowed to take pictures inside the house, but I found a picture of the dining room with the Christmas tree and my other personal favorite- the library.
If you ever have the chance, you must visit the Biltmore! It is a beautiful house and it's so fun to imagine what life was like at the turn of the century - especially for millionaire Vanderbilt! We definitely recommend purchasing the audio tour - you get lots of fun stories and background information that you would miss out on if you just breezed through.
What did you do this past weekend?
