Biltmore House & Gardens, NC
A visit to North Carolina isn't complete without a tour of the impressive Biltmore estate, America's largest home and acres of historic gardens located in Asheville. This fabulous destination was created in 1895 by George W. Vanderbilt as an escape from everyday life for family and friends.
Interior photography is not allowed, but know that their is grandeur spilling forth in every room. Your tour includes access to three floors, including the basement where the domestic staff kept the house functioning in perfect rhythm. The indoor pool, also in the basement, was quite impressive.
The gardens feature an Italian garden, a Shrub garden, walled gardens, and a rose and azalea garden. Simply beautiful
