A Dickens of a Time Overnight Experience

Dickens of a Time Overnight Experience
During the Month of December

During the month of December, Belle Grove’s Historic Mansion will be fully decorated for the holiday season and is guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit.

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. We reopen on the first Saturday to the public. Each person that visits Belle Grove is invited to tour the mansion and vote for their favorite room. The top three rooms receive prizes.
This year, we are offering an all-inclusive overnight experience that is sure to get you and your family into the holiday spirit. Arrive early and enjoy our “Dickens Period” staff as they serve you a cup of holiday cheer.

With this special overnight experience, you will receive the following:

• Early Arrival at 1pm for a Victorian Holiday Afternoon Tea for two at 1pm
• A Historic Holiday Mansion Tour
• Four Course Dickens Christmas Carol Dinner at 6pm for two
• Victorian Carolers during dessert
• After dinner and caroling, we will end the evening with a warm cup of apple cider and the reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas”.
• Breakfast served at 9am

This package can be added to any December overnight stay. Dates are limited so don’t wait to book.
This experience is only available December 2022. The cost is $260.00. We are sorry, but we are not able to serve dinner or breakfast in your room or on the balcony during December. Dinner is a pre-fix meal. Dietary concerns may be requested.
