Please note:

Touring private homes is a special experience. Some will be decked with elaborate Christmas decorations; other homes will be more understated to reflect the holiday traditions specific to the family. All the homes and Inns on the tour will have beautiful interiors. 

This is a self-guided walking tour, and the private houses will not be wheelchair or walker accessible. Many will have 10-12 stairs to climb to reach the entrance and many more inside.  There are no elevators available for use.

Wheelchairs and strollers cannot be allowed inside houses.  

Well-behaved children who are interested in adult activities are welcome but must also pay the full ticket price. Small children must be carried. 

No photography will be allowed.
