During the holiday season, Boscobel House and Gardens becomes even more beautiful. The 1804-08 Neoclassical mansion will be decorated with historically-inspired garlands, fruits, and sweet treats. Expert docents guide visitors through each elegant room and entertain visitors with stories of early 19-century Yuletide traditions, many of which are still beloved today.


Daytime Holiday Tours are offered November 24 through December 31. (Boscobel is closed on Tuesdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.) The first tour of the day begins at 10:00am. The last tour begins at 3:00pm. Each guided tour is approximately one hour in length.


Tour times are subject to availability. Advance registration is not required. To inquire about schedule and tickets, please call 845-265-3638. We look forward to seeing you.

With the mansion lit by candles, decorated for a 19th century Christmas, and resonating with live string music, Twilight Tours offer an especially beautiful view of Boscobel House and Gardens.


Children will enjoy hunting for gingerbread kids throughout the mansion.


Outside, the mansion, Apple Orchard, Rose Garden, and Maple Lane will be lit with an elegant display. We add to this singular experience with a lovely post-tour reception in our decorated gallery, and live holiday music in the Carriage House as well as an expanded gift shop.


Come experience Boscobel at its holiday best.
