Visited the Biltmore Inn in early spring. The gardens were not in bloom yet but the views were spectacular, the dining pretty good and the shopping was great. Did a behind the scenes tour of the grand old house. Think the day tour was better. Except for one thing. Got a chance to see how the place was heated and cooled and supplied with electricity. Now that was ingenious.
Visited the shops downtown and in the shopping area outside. Visited a wearable art shop. The ladies there were delightful and the clothes are like nothing I've ever worn before. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.
