Holiday Mansion Tours

Not interested in tea, but would love to see our Holiday Mansion?
Holiday Mansion Tours on December 3rd to January 2nd Dailey 11am to 4pm
At 11am on Saturday, December 3rd to January 2nd, Belle Grove Plantation will be opening our doors for our very special Holiday Season.

Each year, we will close Belle Grove for one week starting the Monday after Thanksgiving. During this time, some amazing people come and decorate one room in keeping with our theme for the year. This year’s theme is “Christmas Songs”. Most of these people have spent the year before planning their holiday wonderlands. Each person that visits Belle Grove is invited to tour the mansion and vote for their favorite room. The top three rooms receive prizes.
Over the last seven years, it has become a tradition for many to visit Belle Grove for a tour through our Holiday Mansion to get into the Spirit of the Season. Some come to tour, some come to visit with Santa, some come to enjoy our Holiday Tea, and some come to do all three.

No Reservations are needed for the Holiday Mansion Tour (unless you are having tea as well). Come during the open hours to the front door and join our tours that are sure to put you into the holiday spirit.
