The Vanderbilt’s were rich. Well they still are, but in the late 1800’s they were really rich.

The young railroad magnet George saw the palaces of Europe and wanted one of his own. So he built one in Ashville North Carolina.

More than 100 rooms built on thousands of acres of land the Biltmore is beautiful, grands and every bit as spectacular as the great palaces of Europe.

High ceilings, amazing views of the mountains elegant furnishings, an indoor swimming pool and two lane bowling alley are just some of the surprises that await visitors .

One of my favorite rooms was the main kitchen. The copper pots are well used but still glisten .
