My Visit to the Biltmore Estate

Hello everyone,
In May I took a vacation to North Carolina.
HEREHERE and HERE are highlights of 
my travels.
The glassed roof CONSERVATORY is the first room on the tour.
George Vanderbilt created Biltmore over a six-year period.
Architect Richard Morris Hund modeled the house on three
chateaux built in 16th century France. It would
feature four acres of floor space. 250 rooms, 34
bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, and 65 fireplaces. 
BANQUET HALL
I stayed on the Biltmore property for three days and toured the Estate
and Gardens. During our stay, the Biltmore premiered a new exhibit
Designed for Drama
Fashion from the Classics
MUSIC ROOM
Costumes from 13 movies are dramatically staged in the magnificent
rooms of Biltmore House.  The exhibition features elaborate costumes
from recent films that bring literary characters to life, including
Sherlock Holmes, Finding Neverland, Anna Karenina, and 
Pride and Prejudice.
BILLARD ROOM
SMOKING ROOM
BREAKFAST ROOM
LIBRARY
GEORGE VANDERBIlT'S BEDROOM

MRS VANDERBILT'S BEDROOM

SERVANT'S BEDROOM

I love the copper pots and the kitchen that reminds me of
my very favorite television series.

What a wonderful visit to the most incredible historic home.

  3. Thank you for the tour. What an amazing historic site. I was surprised at how large the servants room was, much larger than I expected it would have been and I could just imagine the hubbub in the kitchen.

  4. Good afternoon Betty, I thoroughly enjoyed your tour. The rooms are so sumptuous, well apart from the servants quarters. I loved Mrs Vanderbilt's bedroom, the colours were gorgeous. I can imagine how busy the kitchen would have been, with everyone tooing and froing to get the meals out on time.
    I am really looking forward to seeing the gardens, because I am a keen gardener and its amazing how many hints and tips we can glean from a large garden which then can be incorporated into our smaller gardens. In fact I am just going outside to dig another border when i have finished writing to you.
    Have a lovely Sunday.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

  5. I love the addition of the period costumes! We've toured other Vanderbilt homes in Newport and this house has been on my list for a while now. It looks amazing.
