Here are some of the photos I took when I visited the Biltmore Estate. The rooms were fascinating, but photography wasn't allowed inside the manor. I counted the wine glasses at the family table setting (in a dining room with an organ) - there were five! George would've loved meals there. Despite how opulent the wallpaper, rugs, and decorations were, the beds were so small! (I wonder when mattress sizes became standardized...) The house had several guest rooms, several parlors, a music room, and in the bachelor's wing, a gun room. It even had a fitness room with the wooden pins used for exercise as well as an indoor pool and two bowling lanes. The rooms that looked most comfortable to me were for the servants - both their quarters and eating space.
