House is an understatement. French Renaissance chateƔu remains America's largest privately owned home.

Would you be able to sit inside the fireplace in the library ?

Wedding location video...

Great slideshow! I've never been to there but would love to see it in person sometime. I was kind of fascinated by that old indoor pool. Thanks for joining the blog party! -Julia :-)

My mom just went on a road trip down to the Estate...she loved it (and I loved the wine she brought back for me. :-)

I clicked through to the pictures...um, my master bedroom isn't as nice as the servant's!

We toured Biltmore in August and would love to go back. It's a wonderful piece of Americana. Thanks for the tour.
