Upstairs at the Biltmore House

Upstairs at the Biltmore House

The top floor of the Biltmore House, George Vanderbilt's fabulous mansion in Asheville, served three purposes: an Observatory overlooking the sweeping Appalachian landscape and adjacent outdoor balconies; the Architectural Model Room housing Richard Morris Hunt's 1889 architectural model of Biltmore House and the female servants' quarters.  Get a behind-the-scenes tour of these recently opened rooms which provide an interesting contrast to the more opulent public rooms on the lower floors.
