251 rooms...but who is really counting?!?

Over the weekend, the hubs and I went to visit the Biltmore in Asheville. We drove up early and spent the entire day exploring the grounds.

We started off visiting the amazing greenhouses in the morning. I have never seen such unusal plants! Take a look at the crazy snake plant...I love it!

For lunch we ate at the DeerPark overlooking a goregous hill. We enjoyed homemade mashed potatoes, green beans, turkey, and cornbread. It was like a gourmet Thanksgiving meal.

We then went and took a winery tour and Matt got to sample some of the homemade wine. We may or may not have brought home three bottles of wine....

The last leg of the day was the actual house. There are 251 rooms in the house, but many are still being renovated. We walked through soemthing like 50 of them AND were exhausted!!! I can't imagine going through the entire house. It was so breath taking to see all of the decorated Christmas trees.

We have a wonderful mini vaca together in Asheville. I would defiantly reccommend Asheville and the Biltmore to everyone!
