The Biltmore Estate
After a weekend snowed in some cabin together and the day before we head off to Washington DC for another school trip, Dad and Mom whisk me away for a day at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.
We used to have a coffee table book of the Biltmore as I was growing up (funny, now that I think about it because we had never visited there) and I used to pour over it, amazed by the beauty and enormity of the estate and everything on its grounds.
So, it was like a "little" fulfillment of a dream to actually get to see it up close. It was beautiful and amazingly efficient for that time period. I have been sort of obsessed lately with information from that era so it was great to walk through the halls of a time that has become strangely familiar to me.
A little pricey...but I highly recommend it.
Only a few hours left on April 1st. Wish I had seen this earlier, I would have been posting it everywhere!
