A visit to the splendidly decorated Victorian Lockwood Mathews Mansion is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season! Join us on a tour of this impressive, sprawling Second Empire Style country house, with its extraordinary architecture and interiors that illustrate magnificently the beauty and splendor of the Victorian Era. We’ll step back into the Gilded Age as we wander through the traditional display of trees adorned with historic decorations and lights, pass by mantles festooned with period greens and fruits, and walk among a selection of vintage toys and games. The glittering and festive holiday exhibit will help us to capture that Christmas magic. After an included deli-style lunch, a horse drawn wagon will take us on a one-of-a-kind adventure through Wood Acres Farm, nestled in the Litchfield Hills. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the peaceful countryside as we traverse along rural roads through the picturesque local farmlands. As the wagon will not accommodate everyone, we will escape the cold in the cozy Farmhouse as we enjoy hot drinks and fun conversation. On the off chance that there is snow, our wagon will magically turn into a sleigh!
