After a day spent mostly driving to Harrah’s Cherokee Casino, we checked into our HUGE rooms – yes, we had a room each. Each room had 2 king sized beds. I could have had my own party. But instead we had dinner at the very extensive and excellent buffet.
The next day we visited Biltmore – a grand house in a very European style. Elaborate, extravagant, totally over the top by today’s standards, but impressive and an interesting glimpse at a different time and a different way of life.
The excellent audio guide leads you through the building, explaining the rooms and their contents. I think the thing I was most astounded by was the huge indoor swimming pool. Although it can no longer be used, it’s not hard to imagine what it was like when it was full and the family and their guest were enjoying its heated waters.
On to Antler village and a winery tour followed by tastings and a few purchases.
Back at Harrah’s I went for a walk before keeping my record intact by losing at the casino. I’ve managed that in every one I’ve ever been to.
