Biltmore con't....River Bend Farm

The trip continues.
Let's move along now to the part of the 8,000 acre estate that includes more historic buildings, outdoor activities and old-fashioned fun......River Bend Farm, other wise known in our house as - the most fun part.

Let's look at the scenery along the way.....it is approximately 4 miles away from the main house so there's lots to look at.






This was a beautiful little pond with the house in the background, it was a perfect spot to stop & have a picnic lunch (which we did).



The obligatory kid photos - aren't they cute?




They even have a mercantile & a creamery (ice cream shop) at the barn.



That's it from River Bend Farm. Come back tomorrow & we'll head to over to Biltmore Winery - otherwise known in our house as Mommy's favorite part.

I was hoping you'd post a "second half" of the tour! Having been there at Christmas we missed seeing the all the beautiful grounds. I definitely want to plan a warm weather trip. It looks like your kids had a great time during this part.

What beautiful photos - I've always wanted to go to the Biltmore, especially in fall. I've heard it's beautiful during the Christmas season, too. :)
