I'm a firm believer that we should gift our loved ones with experiences, not stuff. We are getting ready to merge two households and as you can imagine we have plenty of STUFF. I have been brainstorming for a while now on what to do for Mr. Encore. Since he had to work today I figure that it would have to be limited to one day. After much thought I came up with the perfect (how presumptuous of me) trip for the day, a visit to the Biltmore House in Asheville, NC. The place is huge, in fact is the largest home in America. This is a brief description from their site:
"Be inspired by the relaxed elegance of George and Edith Vanderbilt's 250-room family home and country retreat in Asheville, NC. Discover original art from masters such as Renoir, magnificent 16th-century tapestries, Napoleon's chess set, a library with 10,000 volumes, a Banquet Hall with a 70-foot ceiling, 65 fireplaces, an indoor pool, bowling alley, and priceless antiques. Opened to friends on Christmas Eve 1895, this French Renaissance chateáu remains America's largest privately owned home."
