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 fields & arrive at the gigantic home. Just breathtaking. When you have money you can do lots!!! Loved our trip on April 21-22. Beth ( ;
It's great you were able to have a good time with your mom and enjoy spending time together. You were in my neck of the woods!
Have a great week!!!
i would love to visit here, next time we are in the area visiting thing #2!!
Thanks for sharing with us!
It is a magnificent building and estate!
I hope to share my photos of it later this week!
I feel like if I lived in a house like this, I would never feel like it was mine. I would feel like I belonged to it!
Great photos. Thank you for sharing them with us.
