The Ceilings of Biltmore

Wow! It’s been a week! And it’s only Wednesday. I’ve been having technical difficulties over here, but I think I’ve just about got the kinks worked out. Thanks for sticking around!

Last week I told y’all about our recent visit to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. I mentioned that, while beautiful, the estate tour was pretty crowded, which made good photos pretty much impossible. So instead, I decided to point the camera iPhone up.

A Visit to Biltmore

On Monday, I shared a little about our time in the cute little town of Sylva, NC. Today I want to tell you about our trip to the big house!

The Biltmore Estate is the largest home in the country and is located in Asheville. Built in 1895, it sits on 8,000 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Biltmore was built by the Vanderbilt family and is still family owned. The house itself is over 176,000 square feet with 250 rooms 65 fireplaces, and 3 kitchens. Because who doesn’t need 3 kitchens?!

Our Trip to Sylva, NC

Last week, Charles and I took a trip to the western part of the state. I had a board meeting in Sylva, NC on Friday, so we decided to make a little getaway out of it. After spending the day in Sylva on Friday, we headed to Asheville to tour the Biltmore Estate on Saturday. It was the perfect little reprieve from our crazy busy lives, and just what we needed!

Sylva is located between the Blue Ridge Mountains and Smokey Mountains, about an hour west of Asheville. Downtown Sylva has so much more to offer than I ever would have guessed!
