Tour of Homes
decorated for the holidays
One of the highlights of the Christmas in St. Michaels weekend is the Tour of Homes. In one of the longest running home tours in Maryland, both historic homes in the village and some very special countryside homes are featured.
|Dates/Times:||Saturday||Dec. 9, 2017||11am - 5pm|
|Sunday||Dec. 10, 2017||11am - 4pm|
The houses in town are within walking distance of each other, which gives visitors a great opportunity to stroll through town and soak up the historic atmosphere. Most of the homes, built in the 18th and 19th centuries, had at one time been the residences of watermen and seafarers. Many of these homes have since been restored, expanded, and adapted to today’s life style.
The countryside homes are located just outside of town, often situated on expansive waterfront settings. These houses should not be missed, as they employ exquisite architectural details and are creatively set amidst the Eastern Shore landscape.
Visitors reach the country homes via professional licensed shuttle bus service, which is included in the price of the ticket. The buses leave from the Crab Claw parking lot, with the last bus departing at 4:00 pm on Saturday and 3:00 pm on Sunday.
