Biltmore Breakfast Room

When I visited the Biltmore House, the Breakfast Room was one of my favorite rooms.



The lighting was not good so my images aren't the best. 


I read there are three generations of china and crystal stored in Biltmore House, and much of it is more than 100 years old. The china is stored in glass cupboards in the two-story Butler's Pantry. 



The guide said they ate breakfast and some luncheons in this room. Can you imagine sitting down to this gorgeous table. What an honor that must have been. BTW the flowers are all fresh and grown on the estate.



I am sure you are noticing the white linens on the table. I'm not sure what china is used on the table but I doubt it is the fine china from the Biltmore collections. It may stay in the butler's pantry since it is so fragile and old.



I couldn't get a shot of the entire room on my iPhone so I have borrowed an image from Romantic Asheville.com  to share with you.




I did get a pic of the ornate ceiling. There were so many people of the tour, it was difficult to take pics and the lighting made it worse. At least they did allow pictures to be taken. 


There you have the Breakfast Room at the Biltmore House. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

  1. We love to visit the Biltmore and tour the house. There's SO much to see and it's hard to imagine it being a real home that people lived in, isn't it? I love being on the veranda looking out over the land. Beautiful views! Hugs!

  2. The Biltmore is one of those places that reminds me how different life can be. It is always interesting to glimpse another era and imagine living in such style.

  3. Love your post and your photo's. I loved touring the Biltmore and the gardens. We had to drive about 2,000 miles to get there (we were actually driving to Georgia to visit our son) It was in Spring and I would love to see it in all seasons. Your post brought back great memories for me. Love it!

  4. We've only been to the Biltmore once, and it was so amazing. WE've often discussed going back. I'd LOVE to see it dressed for Christmas - I bet that is stunning.

    Thanks for sharing - and reminding me- that we do need to plan on going back.

    Sorry I have been MIA. Miss blogdom. Hugs. ♥

  6. The two times that I've toured the house, taking photos was not allowed. I wondered if the fact that you were with a guide made a difference? Also, do you know if would you have been allowed to take pics with a regular camera instead of your phone? I adore the Biltmore estate. I have extensive photos of the grounds and surrounding land. I would adore the ability to take photos inside the house. Yes, Christmas is entirely worth the second trip, and The Biltmore Inn is one of my all time favorite hotels. Thanks for taking us along for a peek. Cherry Kay
