Old World Holiday in Red Wing


Published:

A quaint inn beautifully trimmed in traditional holiday decorations has such a Dickens feel this time of year. If your idea of an enjoyable holiday experience is more 19th century than 21st, then you may want to venture to Red Wing on Saturday and take part in the Red Wing Bed and Breakfast Holiday Open House.

On Saturday, December 7, Red Wing bed and breakfasts, along with the historic St. James Hotel, will open their doors to the public, between noon and 4 p.m., to provide visitors a glimpse of fine old-world craftsmanship and unique antique holiday decorations. Each inn on the tour represents a time from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Enjoy the holiday decorations and fine food at each location. In addition, some other local restaurants will be on hand to serve special dishes at the inns.

Advance tickets for the tour are $12 and may be purchased at many locations, including the inns, downtown merchants and the Visitors Center at the Red Wing depot. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $15, which also enters participants in a chance to win one of two $300 gift certificates toward a stay at Red Wing bed and breakfasts. Since 2000, this annual holiday event has raised more than $15,000 for local nonprofit organizations. This year’s proceeds will support Red Wing Downtown Main Street.

In addition to the St. James Hotel, participating bed and breakfast properties include the Candlelight Inn, Golden Lantern Inn, Moondance Inn, Pratt-Taber Inn and Octagon House, many of which are located within walking distance of one another. Good tidings to you.
