On a trip to Newport, RI, I noticed a poster advertising the best privately-owned homes to visit in the US. The largest and most impressive was Biltmore Estate, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC. The unique architecture of the mansion was what really caught my eye – it’s amazing! I knew right then that I had my next holiday destination!
I read about it online and found that they decorate the estate for Christmas. Since Christmas is my favorite holiday and I usually visit Walt Disney World in December for Christmas, I decided to add an extra three days to my holiday and stop by North Carolina on my way back home from Orlando. This would be a solo trip as I would be spending one week at Disney with my sister, and then we would fly home separately since we live in different states. So how was staying right on the estate as a solo traveler during Christmas?
