There is perhaps no place more beautiful to celebrate the Christmas season than at the Newport Mansions. At this time of year, the historic Newport Mansions get fully decked out in silver and gold and offer a joyous mix of music, tours, and spectacular decorations. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the best of the Christmas season, all while enjoying the quiet, romantic accommodations offered by our Connecticut Bed and Breakfast.
Newport, Rhode Island is about an hour away from our Bed and Breakfast – a little further if you choose to take the scenic route along the water, which of course we recommend. It’s an easy day trip from here. In no time at all, you’ll be reveling in the magic of the Newport Mansions at Christmas. Come celebrate the season with us. Book your room at our Bed and Breakfast near Mystic Ct.
The Magic of Christmas at the Newport Mansions
The Newport Mansions are always worth the trip – the opportunity to revel in these gilded age masterpieces is never a disappointment. The Newport Mansions are currently open for regular tours, with holiday celebrations kicking off on November 21st at both The Breakers and The Elms.
You can expect both of these incredible buildings to be well decorated with spectacular Christmas trees, wreaths, fresh flowers like poinsettias, dining tables set with period silver and china, and festive mantles and decorations throughout. A perennial favorite of visitors to the Newport Mansions at Christmas is the 15-foot tall poinsettia tree in the Great Hall of the Breakers, and it is set to make a return for 2020-2021.
While the inside decorations of the Newport Mansions at Christmas is truly magical, you can expect this year to take Christmas at the Newport Mansions to a whole new level, with outside decorations lighting up The Breakers with stunning displays of Christmas lights. You can expect thousands of colorful lights to be on display, which will include 28 spruce trees, The Breakers façade bathed in color, and festive lighting on the historic paths and in the exterior shrubbery.
While the holiday magic will carry on at the Newport Mansions this year, the traditional holiday evenings with live music and events with Santa will not be held this year, due to COVID regulations.
Tickets to Christmas at the Newport Mansions
Both The Breakers and The Elms will be open from November 21, 2020 – January 3, 2021 – with The Breakers staying open a bit later through January 10, 2021. The interior spaces will be open from 12 pm – 8 pm, and the exterior lights will turn on at 4 pm.
Reservations are not required, but we do urge you to buy tickets in advance. You can visit just one of the mansions, or you can buy the Mansion Duo ticket, which is just $32. After you’ve taken the time to thoroughly enjoy these historic buildings, we suggest you make the 10-mile trip along Ocean Drive, or if you’re truly brave bundling up and taking a stroll along parts of Newport’s famous Cliff Walk before returning to the Stonecroft Country Inn.
