Tour of Biltmore--America's Largest Home!

We went on a tour of the Biltmore in Asheville, NC, on June 21st.  It was AMAZING! I would have loved to show you the inside, but no photos were allowed.
The Biltmore is the largest privately owned home in the United States 
at 175,000 square feet (16,300 square meters).  It was built by George Vanderbilt.

Architect Richard Morris Hunt modeled the house to look like a 16th-century French chateaux. It features 4 acres of floor space, 250 rooms, 34 bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, and 65 fireplaces. The basement has a swimming pool, gymnasium and changing rooms, bowling alley, servants' quarters, kitchens, and more.

After the house tour we went on a tour of the gardens.  They had a huge vine covered awning.

Walking back to the house, Ryan had to take a break  It was really hot and humid.
Can you tell that Ryan was tired of walking and tired of photos.
