8,000-acre Biltmore Estate

 Welcome to America's largest home ... Biltmore House & Gardens
 You could spend several days walking and exploring the Biltmore Estate but we did it in one!
Renting a headset provides a two hour guided audio tour of each room.
 Guarding the entrance.
 What a view!
 Pictures just don't do this vista justice.
 The view from the first level back porch.

 The Biltmore Garden Conservatory
 We didn't walk around since the flowers were past bloom.
There is a spring garden, Italian garden, shrub garden, walled garden, rose garden and an azalea garden.

 The Bass Pond

 Taken from inside the car along the 4 mile drive up to Antler Hill Village & Winery.

 Cedric's Tavern at Antler's Hill Village.

 Getting exhausted we needed to get back to the house for the westies.

On Friday morning we will be leaving the south early in the morning.  Hopefully, we'll drive home but it all depends on how the westies do in the car.
Asheville is a nice area and we hope to visit again.


  1. Beautiful photos! Sure is a lot to see.

  2. WOW! Thanks for sharing your trip. We loved seeing all the pictures.
