We pretty much spent the whole day at the Biltmore Estates. We started by perusing the shops and exterior of the house since the inside was really crowded when we arrived. That turned out to be a great plan as the crowds thinned out quite a bit by the time we were ready and we enjoyed a leisurely tour through this magnificent house.
When we were done in the house, we headed to a fabulous meal at "The Stable" - still on the grounds - where we warmed up a bit as well. The temperatures were a bit chilly but we wanted autumn weather - and autumn weather we got!
When we left the restaurant, we figured it would do us well to get a bit of exercise so we walked the grounds and ended up in the beautiful gardens and greenhouse. I can only imagine how gorgeous this must be when it is full of spring flowers.
After lots of walking, we headed to the winery and it was the perfect way to end our visit.
Since we were all still a bit full from our wonderful meal, the girls asked if we could go back to the hotel, watch a scary movie - them, not us - and order room service when we got hungry. And, that is exactly what we did...and it was the perfect way to end the perfect day!
Still more to come. Stay tuned...and Happy Halloween. I am having a busy day and will be sure to share it soon as well. Bwah haha!!!
