Four Year Anniversary
On February 13, we celebrated our four year wedding anniversary by touring the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. We had a blast!
The whole thing was a surprise for Ashlynn. She never knew where we were going until we were on our way that morning.
It was an amazing day that we'll never forget. Cameras weren't allowed inside, but it was unbelievable! The home was built in 1890 (I think) by the Vanderbilts as a small get-away home in the Carolina Mountains. Needless to say, this small retreat turned into the biggest home they had at the time.
This is an exterior view of the grand staircase. No one was allowed to go up or down the staircase unless they were in formal attire.
This was a side patio facing the courtyard, with the gardens on the left, and the mountains on your right.
Here's a view of the patio from the garden below.
We're planning on going back in the Spring to get a full view of the gardens, and walkways. One of the most interesting things about the house was the modern day furnishings. Electricity, automatic lights, and a heated indoor swimming pool!
