This past weekend my mother and I went on a 24 hour trip to Biltmore Estates up in Asheville, North Carolina! It was supposed to be gloomy, pouring rain, and storming….but amazingly the rain stayed away for the most part! (Praise the Lord) We stayed at the Biltmore Inn, and that is the most gorgeous place I’ve ever stayed at.
The first night we went and meandered around the property, browsed the shops, enjoyed complimentary wine tastings, and ate at the Dining Room inside the Biltmore Inn. If you are gluten free or vegetarian most of their restaurants do such a great job at providing flavorful and unique dishes. Seriously some of the best gluten free and vegetarian dishes I’ve ever had. Still dreaming about it… Then we continued to walk around the property and take in the breath taking views.
On the second day we went and toured the gardens before having a delicious lunch and touring the house. The house was filled with beautiful dresses from films like Pride and Prejudice, and they also showcased the family’s favorite books throughout the house.
After the house we went back up to the Biltmore Inn and waited for our high tea reservations. (I highly recommend you get reservations for high tea way in advance, and reservations for lunch and dinner at the sit down restaurants, because they fill up fast and you don’t want to miss their amazing dishes.) High tea is something I’ve wanted to do for years, and I was so excited that my mom got the reservations! We sat and enjoyed the views of the mountains, delicious tea, and scrumptious foods. HIGHLY encouraging you do high tea at Biltmore!!!
That about concludes the mother daughter 24 hour Biltmore trip!
