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.
