As I wrote in the last two blog posts, we spent Days 3 and 4 (May 13 and May 14) at Biltmore Estates in Asheville NC. After admiring Biltmore House and the Library and South Terraces and the Walled Garden and Conservatory, we walked through the Azalea Garden to Bass Pond.
The walk from the Conservatory to Bass Pond is approximately 1/3 mile.
We would have walked around Bass Pond to a waterfall on the other side of the pond; however, the trails were closed.
On our way back from Bass Pond to Biltmore House and from there to our car, we came across a shuttle bus (near the Conservatory). We rode the shuttle bus to parking lot A. We planned to eat a picnic lunch at the parking lot inside our car and then head over to Antler Hill Village and Winery. Our plans changed, though, while on the shuttle bus ride. While on the shuttle bus ride, the driver pointed out a lagoon and two barns, one housing sheep and the other housing horses. The driver suggested having a picnic at the lagoon and told us that there was a lovely view of the back of Biltmore House from the lagoon. We decided to save the Antler Hill Village and Winery visit for the next day, using our next-day tickets that we had purchased earlier in the day.
On our drive from Parking Lot A to the lagoon, we passed by Bass Pond. We stopped at the far end of Bass Pond where we saw and photographed the waterfall.
The remainder of our day at Biltmore Estate on May 13th was spent picnicking at the lagoon and checking out the sheep and horse barns — the subject of my next blog post.
