America's Largest Home built by George Vanderbilt in 1889-1895.
8,000 Acres. 250 Rooms. 65 Fireplaces. 47 Bedrooms.
Oh, and 57 Christmas Tree for 2013 Holiday season (the Largest one is 35 feet tall)
The Parking lot is 2 miles away from the front gate.
Taking the shuttle from the parking lot to the Biltmore House.

No photography allowed anywhere inside the house. A nice YouTube video here. The house is decorated with collections from all over the world. The basement is incredibly big.
I wish I could stay for Candlelight Evening for Christmas celebration (Candlelight evenings Video on YouTube here), but I had to drive to my next hotel in Knoxville which is 2.5 hours away (it ended up taking 3+ hours with traffic in the snow shower).
