biltmore estate

February 9, 2009

About 5 min from our apartment is the largest privately owned home in the US! It’s a 250-room mansion featured 33 family and guest bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, 65 fireplaces, 3 kitchens, an indoor swimminpool, gym, a bowling alley and so on and so on and so on….George Washington Vanderbilt III welcomed family and friends to Biltmore Estate on Christmas Eve in 1895.

I love it and guess who has a 12 month pass now. YAY! They always have different decorations according to season and different tours etc. Think I’ll never get tired of that mansion. So much to see, so much history and amazing things to look at. To find out more read here (Wikipedia in English), here (Wikipedia in Swedish, short version) or here (their website).

The view from the house…


The stable is a restaurant now..really tasty veggie burgers..
