Asheville attracts many visitors because of the Biltmore Estate. "America's largest home" is ornate, historical, iconic and all other good things when it comes to a house of this size.
Downton Abbey comes to mind while wandering the long halls and peering into round, wallpapered bedrooms from past lives.
Now imagine multiple Christmas trees in every room. Garland on stairwells and chandeliers.
Even better, no cameras are flashing to disturb your holiday spirit (they aren't allowed indoors).
The grounds are a bit bare but still romantic in the Asheville winter weather.
The holiday Candlelight tours are coming to a close just after Christmas.
The sun setting over the blue ridge mountains is a view year-round.
