OLLI's Christmas Trip to Biltmore Estate- Asheville, NC - Dec 4-5, 2019 ($469 pp dbl occ; add $148 single supplement)

The World of Downton Abbey Exhibit will be at Biltmore Estate for us to enjoy!!! You will spend 24 hours on Biltmore Estate grounds; stay on Estate grounds at the elegant Inn on Biltmore Estate; tour the Biltmore House by candlelight with every room decorated to the nines; savor the gourmet breakfast in the Inn’s dining room; tour the Estate grounds with OLLI's Jim Nicholson. And of course, sample the Biltmore wines...and still have time to see the Downtown Abbey Exhibit..What a special trip and having Andrea Sisino as escort makes it even better.

You are on your own for dinner before the Candlelight Tour. Choose from the dining room at the Inn; the more casual Bistro at the Winery or very casual Cedric's. Indicate which place you would like to dine, the names of others in your party when you sign up for the trip. We (Biltmore and I) will make early reservations for you (menus can be found at www.biltmore.com). The Library lounge at the Inn, with lighter fare, does not require a reservation.

At 7:30pm, we catch the Biltmore shuttle for the Candlelight Tour of the Biltmore House. You can spend up to two hours enjoying the elegance, decorations and holiday entertainment in The House. Lots of walking involved for the candlelight tour, so comfortable shoes are a must.

Day 2 begins with a gourmet breakfast in the Inn dining room followed by a tour the Estate grounds with Jim Nicholson as the step on guide. Jim will inform and entertains with stories of the family, the history of the area and future plans for the Estate. The tour ends at The Biltmore House where you can revisit the House, explore the Estate on your own via Biltmore shuttle, take the optional architectural tour and spend time viewing the Downton Abbey exhibit.
