If you are planning a visit to Asheville, be sure to tour the town’s crown jewel: the Biltmore Estate. The four-story mansion is set on 8,000 acres, contains about three dozen bedrooms and is the largest privately owned home in the United States. George Washington Vanderbilt completed this fairy-tale estate in 1895, and today it is run by his fourth- and fifth-generation descendants.
