Travel back in time and enjoy the magic and mystery of the holidays with a one-day getaway to magical Tarrytown and mysterious Sleepy Hollow, New York!
We’ll visit beautiful Lyndhurst Mansion, its halls decked in their holiday finery, for "A Very Duchess Holiday Tour," described as one of the “Ten Best Historic Holiday Tours” by USA Today. We pay homage to Anna Gould, the Duchess of Talleyrand and Lyndhurst’s final owner. We view the rarely seen children’s toys, holiday dishes, silver, jewels, and clothes that belonged to the Duchess in vignettes of holiday presents and baubles. This is a once-a-year opportunity to see many of the Goulds’s glittering possessions that are usually tucked away.
At The Old Dutch Church, you’ll experience the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge like you never have before! We’ll nestle into the historic Old Dutch Church and let master storyteller Jonathan Kruk, complete with musical accompaniment, regale you with his adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic in Dickens’s "A Christmas Carol."
We’ll view the magical holiday lighting on Tarrytown’s charming Main Street, the Main Street of your memories and dreams – and of the movies. You’ll probably feel right at home since many movies you’ve seen have been filmed on this historic street. You can do some old-fashioned Christmas shopping in its unique independent stores while taking in its beauty.
We’ll feast on the savours of the season at Tarry Tavern located on historic Main Street in the heart of Tarrytown. We’ll enjoy farm-fresh dining showcasing the bounty of the Hudson Valley in the ambiance of a classic American tavern, updated: elegant English red oak paneling, warm butter colored walls, and a richly lacquered bar.
These are just a few of the sights and sounds we’ll experience during our trip back in time to a magical mystery Christmas!
