Country Sampler Holiday Homes December 2018 - - Seasonal Joys - PHO­TO­GRAPH BY JOHN COR­BETT, COUR­TESY OF THE PRESER­VA­TION SO­CI­ETY OF NEW­PORT COUNTY.

De­light in the Yule­tide fin­ery of three mag­nif­i­cent man­sions—the Break­ers, The Elms and Mar­ble House—which were icons in Amer­ica dur­ing the late 1800s. Open daily for tours Novem­ber 17, 2018, through Jan­uary 1, 2019, the stun­ning struc­tures are filled to the brim with thou­sands of poin­set­tias, fresh flow­ers, ev­er­greens and wreaths as well as 30 dec­o­rated Christ­mas trees re­flect­ing the in­di­vid­ual style and decor of each room. Pe­riod sil­ver and china adorn the din­ing ta­bles, and in­di­vid­ual white can­dles line the win­dows of each man­sion in tra­di­tional Colo­nial style.
