The Biltmore Estate


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.

The front door

Restaurants and Shops

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).
