What do you do with a $500 Gift certificate for The Biltmore? Plan a girls weekend!!! At first we thought we'd stay at the Biltmore, but after checking hotel prices on property, we decided to stay at a Wyndham resort and go to the Biltmore for the day. Closest Wyndham to both Faith and us is the Wyndham at Fairfield Mountains in Lake Lure, North Carolina, so that's where we stayed. It was about a 3 1/2 hour drive for Angie and me, and about 2 1/2 hours for Faith. But it was a nice ride through some really pretty country.
Angie and I buzzed up I-85 to I-26. This had us a little concerned until we finally noticed there was a ramp to I-26.
Close to Lake Lure we came across this subdivision. I got a kick out of the doughnut shaped bushes.
The suite was a really strange configuration! This was downstairs---a mini kitchen at the bottom of the stairs, a bedroom to the far left, a bathroom with small shower to the right, and a huge Jacuzzi tub with window in the middle. What a weird waste of space!
