August Vacation {Part 3 - Biltmore Estate & Hokie Town}

On our way home from our South Carolina/North Carolina trip, we ended up with an extra day. With no plans in particular we ended up here for the night... 
But on our way we stopped in Ashville, NC on a little detour when we missed our exit and visited the Biltmore Estate. Who knew we had castle like buildings here in the USA? Not me anyway.
It was a gorgeous day spent admiring the huge house, gardens, winery, inn and landscape built by the Vanderbilt family.

I especially loved the room in the conservatory that was dedicated to orchids! Sooo beautiful!
It was an unexpected adventure on our little August vacation. Oh, how I wish we had more time (and money!) to do things like this every month! So much fun.
