Getaway Day #2

We were able to sleep so peacefully in our room in the Vanderbilt Executive Tower :) 8:00 is what time we got up! That is unheard of in our house! A late morning is a 7:00 morning. 8:00 was a DREAM. Ahhhhh refreshing. We took out time getting ready and after eating breakfast we headed to The Biltmore House. It was Beautiful. It was HUGE, I was so excited to tour it. Can you tell?!

After a few pictures outside, we headed inside to tour the house. It was amazing. Although I couldn't take any pictures of the inside it was one of the most beautiful homes I've ever seen. It took about 2 hours to tour the inside, then we headed outside. The grounds were just as amazing. There were 8000 acres total. We enjoyed the garden, the conservatory, and even found ourselves in the woodland trail. We did our fair share of walking. Even though we had not planned to, we ended up going on quite a hike. The land was beautiful. We had a great time. 

By the time we finally made it back to the house we were exhausted, but far from finished. We headed to Antler Hill Village where we did a wine tasting which was included in the price.... Stacy did NOT like any that we tried. I mean, he gagged out loud! LOL It was very memorable to say the least. We took a look at the barn, animals, a couple of shops before leaving to go eat. We ended up spending just over 7 hours at the Estate and had a Wonderful day. It didn't take either of us long before we passed out that night.
