A few of us decided it would be nice to get away together for the holidays:)! We thought it would be nice to visit the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, NC.
It's a one day getaway where I thought we might meet up for lunch and bookclub discussion around 2:00pm on Saturday, tour the Biltmore estate and grounds, and reconnect at 6:30pm for the evening's Christmas Candlelight Tour at the Biltmore! Final agenda to be advised.

Angela has been nice enough to put in all the hard legwork getting information about the tour and our stay. We've decided to not stay on the Biltmore grounds due to the exorbitant cost ($628/double, cost split between roommates).
We are now booking our overnight stay at the Clarion Inn Biltmore Estate which is located very close to the Biltmore Estate...about 2 blocks. The cost is $130 for the room (1 room, 1 adult) and even less if you decide to split with a roommate!
Please expect total initial cost for hotel and tour to be about $215.00/person. This includes the room (1 room, 1 adult) + Biltmore Candlelight Tour ($85.00).

We are still finalizing transportation details as based on the size of the group may make sense to carpool...lol...may make sense to carpool regardless size of the group lol.
If you RSVP yes, then please comment as following:
1.) If you plan to book single or double room.
2.) If you will need a roommate...we will try to work from the list of RSVPs as needed.
Please note Angela needs our money (in full) when we meet again at the September 24th meetup...this is when we will confirm final RSVPs for this very special meetup. I am hoping everyone will plan to come and join in on the holiday cheer and festivities. Let me know if you have any questions!
