Another favorite room was the library. You can be sure this reader would have spent lots of time checking out the Vanderbilt collection if she had a chance!!
Being a lover of nativities I was in awe of this large nativity laid out on a table in the Tapestry Room.
According to the docent, there were 65 decorated trees adorning the mansion while we were there. Also there were Fresh Flowers in each of the main rooms. They are grown in the green house on the grounds and arrangements are refreshed each day. We did not have time to check out the green house but on my next visit it will be on my list of things to see! If you have a chance to visit this grand old house you should take it. I know I hope to go back and see the gardens in their spring or summer glory!
