It's a grand hotel. I haven't stayed there, but enjoying seeing the inside and checkout their shopping area which seemed extensive as I recall.

That place I know well, though I've never stayed there. It's in a gorgeous setting, and it's got a few ghost stories.

I have heard that this place is beautiful inside as well. I have not seen it,as I don't have that much money to spend for a night. Ha! Ha!

I'd love to be able to stay in this magnificent hotel, but I guess that will have to wait for another lifetime.

It would probably be so far out of my league that I would not be comfortable there!

Lovely photos of our beautiful Fairmont Springs, Banff (no 'i' btw.) We have family in Alberta and visited Banff, Calgary etc. and hope to again soon.

Holy moose-poops! What a place even from that distance...:)JP
Perhaps next time!!!! xx
Great photos... I want to go there--but we keep hearing about everything in Canada (in that Rockies area) being SO expensive. Did you all camp --or stay in a motel? We don't camp----so we'd have to find a motel we could afford....??????

Hugs,
Betsy

Oh, how beautiful! I've heard the area around Banff and Lake Louise is amazing. Canada is a gorgeous country and I'd love to see more of it.

Very upper crust! Pretty to look at, and very manorish too. I'd love to see it up close, but I would definitely be stopped at the gate. LOL!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …
