I know this is an area that Rob has been so anxious to visit, and he was truly in his element and thrilled as soon as we stepped foot into town. Enjoying some of the local beers on our first afternoon was pretty nice as well.
The views from the house were stunning, and so incredibly peaceful.
We arrived on a Thursday and left on a Monday, so we had three full days in the area. We took full advantage of the time and the gorgeous setting. Plenty of hiking gear was packed and we used it all.
We made it to the top!
More hiking trails from other areas.
Our little stud hiker! :)
Could I please have a front porch with this view?
Two cuties hanging out in Asheville!
Us girls enjoying a glass of wine on our porch. And no, we didn't intend on being so matchy…great minds just think alike. :)
Before we left on our trip, Rob's Mom had asked me if I was interested in visiting the Biltmore while we were there. Umm….yes, please! I was thrilled and it certainly did not disappoint. Dee, thanks again for all the scoop on the house and the area! :)
We stepped right into Downton Abbey, and I was giddy with every room and every story behind each room. While my MIL and I were enjoying this beauty, the rest of the family were out on kayaks. (photo stolen from my BIL) It was a perfect day for them on the water.
Oh the views….
Our tickets gave us full access to the house, gardens and then a tasting at the winery. I took a few photos of the gardens, which were stunning, but sadly they didn't turn out so great from my camera phone. It was a perfect day, and I loved spending the one on one time with my MIL. As I've always said, I'm so lucky with the family I've married into, and two of us had a ball that day!
With all this being said, I have a feeling we'll all be visiting this area again soon. Thanks to Rob's family for an amazing vacation and for always making our time together a blast! Can't wait to see where we'll hit next.
