My Asheville/Biltmore Easter Vacation

For Christmas this year my grandmother decided to give me a trip to Asheville as my present. And let me tell you, it was an amazing gift! We stayed at a cute little cottage in Asheville, went shopping, ate lots, and got to see the Biltmore (something I've wanted to do for years!). 

It was so nice to not have to travel all the way home for my break and instead have two important pieces of home (my mom and grandmother) come to me! 

We all got to cross lots off of our Asheville trip list and we had a ball doing it!

We had a spa morning on Friday and then headed to the Grove Park Inn for a delicious lunch on the Sunset Terrace. It was a bit overcast the day we went but the views were still incredible and it was so cool to see the architecture inside!






 



We spent the rest of Friday and Saturday exploring Asheville and then on Sunday we went to an Easter service and made our way to the Biltmore Estate! We could not have asked for better weather! The sky was bright blue and the weather was well into the 70s!


   


We went to an Easter Brunch at the restaurant on the estate and I could not get over how beautiful the views were let alone the brightness of the flowers planted!



The Biltmore hosted Easter Egg Hints for children on the lawn so lots of families came out for the day!







The garden was absolutely breathtaking and I was thrilled to see so many tulips in fun colors! I've decided that tulips are by far my favorite flower!














I highly recommend visiting the Biltmore while all the flowers are in bloom, it's simply stunning!

  1. That looks so pretty! My mom and grandma came to visit me at college as well Easter weekend instead of me coming home. We did similar things - lunch, a visit to the rose gardens, and an early birthday celebration for me! Glad you had a great trip!
