Before the onset of technology, families gathered around the hearth of the fireplace. While visions of sugarplums danced in the children’s heads, mother would lead them in song and father would tell stories. In today’s time, we tend to focus on the socializing and ‘hustle and bustle’ of Christmas.
This year, head to Harrison Mills and celebrate the holiday’s the way it was intended to be, with a traditional old-fashioned Christmas. Whether it’ s lighting the fire and watching the snowflakes dance outside, while staying in one of the luxury cottages at Rowena’s Inn on the River, enjoying mulled wine and Christmas dinner at River’s Edge or Kilby Historic Site, strolling through Harrison Mills on a Friesian horse and carriage ride, or spending the day tubing, snowboarding, skiing, or snowmobiling at Hemlock Valley Resort, we invite you to celebrate Christmas in our backyard.
