We spent our spring break in North Carolina visiting the beautiful Biltmore Estate. If you haven't been there you must go. It is unbelievable and probably the most perfect house ever created. Especially considering it was built in the late 1800's.
George Vanderbilt III built this home as his bachelor pad....250 rooms and 125,000 acres.
Today the home is still owned by the family and has only a mere 8,000 acres.
They owned as far as the eye could see and every view was spactacular.
This is one of the gardens. Unfortunatley we didn't get to see it in full bloom but we plan to return.
We were able to take an hour long horseback ride on the grounds.
This is our corny, traditional spring break pose. Silly, I know.
Strike a pose!
I wish that I had photos of the inside to show you but no photos can be taken inside.
It is absolutely amazing.
If you do go you must rent the headsets. It will give you the history and details of every room.
Zoe, my teen, thought it was going to be boring. She admitted at the end that is was way more fun than she thought it was going to be and she would love to go back.
