25 Days of Christmas, the Biltmore Estate North Carolina

A marvel of Christmas Ambiance

If candlelit Christmas evenings at America’s largest residential French Renaissance chateau sounds like a dream, then you should be planning your holiday trip for the Biltmore Estate. Built over a six year period and opened in 1895, the Biltmore Estate is known for its architecture, fine decor, and yes, its Christmas season.

The 250-room estate stands majestically before the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina. Built under the direction of George Vanderbilt more than a century ago, this jaw dropping American castle has been in the Vanderbilt family since it was built in 1889.

Every year for Christmas, the Biltmore Estate lights up with Christmas ambiance giving a whole new meaning to ‘Deck the Halls’. I could go on describing this sight but I will just let the pictures speak for themselves.
