The Biltmore Estate

Published on: August 21, 2008

Shortly before moving to Asheville, North Carolina for my undergraduate college years, my parents and I visited “The Biltmore Estate” just before they flew back home to North Dakota.

The Biltmore Estate is the largest privately owned house in the United States. We visited all at 178,926 square feet of it and even spent a little time at the winery afterward. This has really grown since we last visited it. I really would like to get back there around the Holidays, as it is a whole different experience then.
