About three years ago I stumbled upon information on a “castle” located in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  The first time I saw a photo of this estate I thought “I want to go!” This American castle, also known as the Biltmore Estate, is located in Asheville, North Carolina.  The Biltmore is a National Historic Landmark with America’s largest home, gardens, winery, and world-class luxury inn.  The summers can be HOT (and very humid) so one of the best times to visit is the in spring.  Needless to say, everything is in bloom and the appletree flowers float down around you like spring snow.  With spring just around the corner, I wanted to tell you about it so you’ll have enough time to make your reservations. And yes, you can do this trip alone. I’ll give you some tips that will help ensure you pull the trip off with success. Over the next week or two I will post a series of blogs that will cover the following:

– How to get there (I found a beautiful back-road that will get you off the beaten path and give you some incredible views as you drive from the airport to the estate)

– About the Biltmore Estate

– Where to stay including information on the world-class luxury Biltmore Inn (located on the grounds)

– What to do (and what not to do)

– Where to eat

– Where to drink (There is a winery so wine tasting is a must)

– In addition I’ll include some tips for the solo traveler to ensure you have a fabulous time

  1. I too am single and normally travel by myself. Your tips have been quite helpful, thanks for sharing ! This place looks really interesting.

    • Thanks! I hope you’ll have the chance to take this trip. March is a fabulous time – I went the third week just before their spring flower festival so it wasn’t too crowded.
