For the first three weekends of December, guests of our Portsmouth, NH bed and breakfast will have an opportunity to experience the delightful Candlelight Stroll at Strawbery Banke Museum. This wonderful event happens on Saturdays from 5:00 to 9:00 pm and Sunday evenings from 4:00 to 8:00 pm on the Museum grounds. Dates are December 3-4, 10-11 and 17-18, 2011.
Wander the candlelit pathways between houses decorated in holiday trimmings, gather at the bonfire, listen to live music while sipping hot cider and munching on donuts, it is a magical night for everyone. There is even a gingerbread house contest!
Visit the Goodwin family in their victorian era mansion to see the decorations that inspire our current traditions. Hear from the family and staff as they discuss the preparations for the feast. You can even see samples of the dishes that will grace the lovely table.
Stay at the Martin Hill Inn and choose from one of our winter packages which include tickets to the Stroll. The Inn is located just a 10 minute walk into downtown Portsmouth where the local shops will assist with your holiday shopping. Stay at the Inn for two nights and we will wrap your local purchases. See you soon.
