Visitors can indulge in the Adult or Children’s Holiday Teas, ride the romantic horse-drawn carriage, and sip something warm while being entertained by Holiday performers.  You also can enjoy a light lunch or snack located in the Carriage House Café, while filling their Holiday shopping lists by purchasing from the mansion gift shop or the Carriage House crafters. The kids enjoy Kid’s Zone with pony-rides, holiday face-painting, crafts and the Breakfast with Santa. It is a wonderful way for you and your family and friends to celebrate the Holidays.
