The 33rd Annual Candlelight House Tour is the pre-eminent holiday house tour on Long Island, showcasing select local homes dressed in holiday finery by our volunteer team of talented local decorators. Each home will be staffed by our docents who will point out the home's most interesting architectural features and furnishings along with the home's historic details.
This year's theme is: Around the Bay. Homes were selected to represent elements of the rich maritime history of Setauket. Each location featured on the tour possesses its own unique charm and style and the decorations are sure to both delight and inspire visitors as they plan their own holiday decorating and entertaining. Be sure to bring a pen to jot down your ideas as no cameras are permitted.
