The Biltmore House is less than an hour away from me and Taylor, but I have never been. I have always wanted to go, but could never afford it. But yesterday, Toni (Taylor's mom), and our friend Renee went to the Biltmore House. They were excited about the Downton Abby exhibit, which was really cool, but I was just glad to get to see the house. You cannot photograph inside the house, but I got some outside beforehand :)
We explored the bottom floor of the house and then we took a break and had lunch. We ate at The Stable, a restaurant located in what used to be the house's horse stables. They've fixed it up and converted it into a restaurant. I personally love the way it looks!
Toni got a burger and fries and Renee and I both got the herb roasted chicken with mashed-potatoes. I also got a side of soup. It was all great! I was very happy with everything I ordered and I loved the atmosphere. The service was great too!
After we ate, we headed back to the house to finish the tour. I think my favorite parts were the swimming pool, the bowling alley, and the pantry full of blue mason jars. I know those things are not actually that impressive compared to the rest of the house, but I loved it.
We finished touring, took a few more photos, and then headed home. It was a great day with two wonderful ladies. I am very thankful for them and for my day with them.
Have a great day!
