My wife and I and two close friends visited the Biltmore Estate for the Christmas decorated candlelight presentation. We took the audio guided tour in the afternoon, had dinner at the stables and then did a self-guided tour for the candlelight evening tour. We had been to the estate about 10 years ago and the tour had changed due to additions to the exhibits and other sections of the home now being opened. The dinner was OK. Not great but OK. The candlelight tour was excellent. The house looks so much warmer and you notice many different elements of the decor after dark with the lights on, the candles lit and fireplaces glowing. I'm glad that we took the audio guided tour first. That tour sets up the history of each room that you visit. After the history lesson you can enjoy a casual walk through and view the warmth of this beautiful estate.
