Biltmore Estate. The size of the rooms on the main floor was staggering! Naturally, the draw for me was the library. The two-level room holds 10,000 volumes, and displays a black marble fireplace large enough for me to walk into and stand upright. Best of all, there is a secret door on the upper level that Mr. Vanderbilt used to enter the library from his bedroom, to find a book or return one late at night. Could I fill a library this size with books? You bet! How about you?
