With Christmas less than six weeks away what better way to get into the holiday spirit than planning a trip to Skaneateles, NY. Be transported back in time to the day’s of candles in the window and carolers on the town hall steps celebrating the Christmas season.
An annual tradition, the celebration begins the day after Thanksgiving and runs every Saturday and Sunday through December 24, from noon to 4 pm. Charles Dickens and his cast of over 50 characters will interact with residents and visitors in the streets, stores and restaurants. The event is for all ages, young and old and everyone in between. Horse drawn wagon rides start the day or bring an end to a perfect afternoon.
Don’f forget the many photo ops for selfies with the Dickens’ gang. And the gazebo on the lake will be all aglow with its lights and festive Christmas tree! Many have used it as a backdrop for Christmas cards. The quaint shops in the village can be the perfect spot to find that special gift. Top off your day with a hot chocolate and pastry from Skaneateles Bakery .
When the chill in the air reminds you that it is time to return to the comforts and warmth of home, why not head back to Bachar Farms where your private luxury retreat awaits you. Cozy up by the wood stove in the sitting room or stretch out on one of the many quilt covered beds at your disposal.
There are many comforts and activities for all who seek them at the farm. If outdoor pursuits are what you crave, there are 10 fenced in acres at your doorstep for leisure walks, snow man building or cross country skiing. The remainder 100 acres are yours for the exploring.
And if a white Christmas is what you dream of consider spending Christmas at the Farm with the whole family! Though snow is not guaranteed it is certainly a very good possibility!
