If there was one thing that my husband wanted for his birthday…it would be a weekend in the mountains. We never have time to visit in October (since wedding season is in full force :). With that being said, we decided, what the heck, lets just go for his birthday. We had an amazing time getting away and enjoying a beautiful cabin with the mountains as the backdrop. Since we were close to Asheville NC we thought we’d be doing ourselves a disservice by not visiting The Biltmore. Now, mind you, I have NEVER been to see The Buildtmore. I know, I know, I know, what the heck Autumn. I have lived here for about 10 years and had never even driven past it. I may have googled it a couple of times but thats about it. This was a little gift, I felt, for me.
This mansion was STUNNING from top to bottom. The details that the Vanderbuilt’s thought of while building their family home was breath-takng. Walking through the house and literally envisioning the family children running down the halls while laughing was so inspiring to me. I tried to document all I could but when you are also battling with others doing the same thing (and/or listening to their audio walk through) it can be a bit challenging lol. However, I did manage to get some pretty awesome pictures that I just love!! My favorite part would have to be their gymnasium! I am in the gym 5 days a week and getting to see what they used back then was killer!!
