We enjoyed a visit to Biltmore in Asheville, NC. I was completely impressed and can't wait to return! Our visit was even more delightful as we shared it with some dear friends. Thought you might enjoy some pictures. (Pictures are not allowed inside the house.) I found it hard to imagine one family actually living here and owning all of this land. Forty three bathrooms! I have a hard time using and keeping 4 clean!

Four?! I'm having trouble taking care of one. Ha!

Wonderful estate the Biltmore. I've been on the tour before with Penny of Lavender Hill. Still, you've shown things that I haven't seen before. What a place!

I am so glad you were able to see this "home"...I didn't realize you weren't allowed to take pictures inside.

Have you seen the movie, "The Age of Innocence"? I imagine THAT is the age the Biltmores lived in. WONDERFUL cinematography...and directed by one of my faves, Martin Scorsese. If you haven't seen it, check it out. I HIGHLY recommend it.

I've seen it, but we only did the house, not the winery or the garden...can't imagine how much time it took for you!
