  • I have been there a few times, two of my Husband’s uncles’ delivered Biltmore Milk for their truck routes. I love this place, it’s so beautiful, I know that at Christmas time a long time ago, they would have gifts for their employee’s kids and have a big party and give them out. The grounds are so unique, I love their landscaping. One thing I didn’t know was they have weddings there; I think it’s the perfect place for our vow renewal, now that I know that.
    Thanks for the giveaway chance

  • there in Biltmore in Asheville, NC George Vanderbilt created Biltmore as an escape from everyday life. Now, you are invited to explore that escape for yourself. A visit to the 8,000-acre estate in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina provides limitless fun.
