Back in 1895 George Vanderbilt II, grandson of railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt, decided to build himself “a little mountain escape’ in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The result was the Biltmore Estate, a fabulous 250-room French chateau. Today it is the largest private home in America and is situated on 8000 acres. We will arrive at the estate, giving you time to visit the shops of Antler Hill Village, followed by dinner at the Stable Café at the Biltmore. After dinner we will have an audio guided Candlelight Tour of the Biltmore House. The Christmas at Biltmore extravagant celebration includes 70 elaborate hand-decorated Christmas trees (including the favorite 35-foot live Fraser fir in the Banquet Hall), 1,000+ poinsettias, miles of garland, and lights, live music, and expert holiday demonstrations.
