SPECTACULAR BILTMORE ESTATE
Springtime in North Carolina & Virginia
MAY 6 - 11, 2018 6 DAYS/ 5 NIGHTS
The experience is simply immeasurable. The driveway is measured in miles. The floor plan is measured in acres. More than a century ago, George Vanderbilt created a larger-than-life country retreat in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. The 250-room Biltmore House features 34 master bedrooms, 43 bathrooms, 65 fireplaces, three kitchens, and an indoor swimming pool. It was appointed with a priceless collection of furnishings and art works that Vanderbilt collected during his world travels. The 75 acres of landscaped gardens, grounds, and park are as spectacular as the house itself.
Now you will have the unique opportunity to stay on George Vanderbilt’s grand estate. The new Inn on Biltmore Estate, rated four diamonds by AAA, will be yours to enjoy when you spend a couple of nights on this estate fit for a King. Leave your cares behind and retreat to a place where hospitality, beauty, and comfort have a legacy more than a century old. Open your windows to catch fresh mountain breezes, or wander along the veranda to capture magnificent sunsets. So escape the ordinary—visit the extraordinary wonders of Biltmore Estate.
After spending a couple of days at the Biltmore Estate, we’ll travel through Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, which sweeps across the Blue Ridge Mountains offering some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States. The Charlottesville area is the heart of Virginia and in many ways, the heart of America since it was once the home to founding fathers Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and James Madison.
Visit the place often described as one of this country’s foremost architectural masterpieces. Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home, remains today as a testimony to its creator’s ingenuity. Located on a mountaintop, the house commands a view of the rolling Virginia countryside that Jefferson so dearly loved.
Includes: Bus transportation, 5 nights accommodations (including 2 nights at the Inn at Biltmore Estate), 5 breakfasts and 5 dinners, plus all sightseeing, taxes, gratuities and baggage handling.
