While in NC, we took a little day trip to Asheville, and also spent an evening at the Biltmore for their Candlelight Christmas event. The Biltmore is an old Vanderbilt mansion (the Vanderbilts had a lot of money), actually the largest private residence in America, and is extravagant, to put it mildly. We visited a few years ago when we were in Asheville, but wanted to head back when everything’s all nice and lit up for the holidays. Of course, I couldn’t take pictures inside the house (there are some on the website), but I got a few outside – any assumptions you make based on looking at the exterior are probably accurate 🙂
Beautiful! We always talk about going there…will have to make it a priority soon to see this place!
