Asheville, North Carolina: Biltmore Estate In Photos (Part 1)

January 22, 2013

A couple of months ago, I was sent on assignment with QC Exclusive magazine to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina with my husband.  To read my article that was published click here.  We were fortunate enough to go during the peak of the fall foliage season and the kaleidoscope of colors was truly a feast for our eyes as we made the road trip there.

America’s largest home is known around the world as one of the most cherished and storied travel destinations.  Built in the 19th Century by George Washington Vanderbilt II, the 8,000-acre estate includes: the 250-room Biltmore House, 75 acres of landscaped gardens, the nation’s most popular winery, dining, shopping, a luxury hotel, hiking and picnic trails, and more for a vacation of a lifetime.  The Biltmore Estate was created as an escape from everyday life and now guests are invited to explore that fairytale escape for themselves as well!

We still had plenty of massive ground left to explore, but we wanted to take a in-depth audio guide tour inside the Biltmore House before it closed for the evening. . .

      We stayed at the Biltmore. It was for the magazine article. I used to live in Asheville, did you know that? How cool that you rented a cabin!!! Asheville is an awesome city, you’ll have so much fun.

      Awww thank you so much, I’m glad you love them! Haha, I’m obsessed with taking shots from the ground — I always do it now! You must return to Asheville when you get a chance.

    One of my favorite things about living in Charlotte is how easy it is to get to the mountains. There aren’t many things that compare to how pretty the Carolina mountainside is during the fall. Great pics!

      Awww I’m so sad you missed it, but now you have a reason to return! Plus, you need to stop in Charlotte so we can meet. 🙂 Thanks for the kind words re: my pics!

    These photos capture exactly why fall is my favorite season, and why I love traveling vicariously through you. It feels odd to be stationary after 4 years of work in various conflict zones, but it’s an appropriate kind of odd — particularly when my nostalgia for “the road” is mitigated by your words and images. As long as I can travel through your photos and stories, I will remain content…

    I have been to Asheville for a blogging conference but it wasn’t in the autumn, I am told it is one of the most beautiful areas to visit in the South during that time of year and your photos definitely prove that to be the case.
