Leader: Sylvia Patterson
The Biltmore Estate beckons from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC. We will board a deluxe motor coach to drive across Tennessee for a two-night stay.
Day one will feature a dinner show in Hendersonville at the Flat Rock Playhouse.
Day two will include a visit to the estate’s winery, a holiday dinner at the Biltmore Estate’s Deer Park Inn, and a Candlelight Tour of the 250 room French Renaissance Chateau of George Vanderbilt where the soft glow of candles reflects on many trees twinkling with colorful lights, vintage Victorian ornaments, a choir singing carols, and bright red poinsettias.
After breakfast on day three, we will head to the stately and fabulous Grove Park Inn. There will be time to enjoy the Yuletide splendor of this “Grand Hotel” of the mountains with more than 50 festively decorated trees, a display of home-made gingerbread houses, and huge fireplaces with logs aglow. We will return to Huntsville after a fabulous holiday luncheon.
Cost per person: $589 (double), $734 (single). Includes five meals.
