An Enchanting Afternoon Tea.. Posted December 2, 2010


Imagine an experience that allows you to step back in time into an unhurried world, where you can relax in a plush armchair near a roaring fire and immerse yourself in the company of friends and family. At the same time, feel yourself unwind as you are pampered with delicious sweet and savory fare in a beautiful setting far away from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. This is precisely what the Historic Bee and Thistle Inn and Spa is offering with Victorian Afternoon Teas; served Thursday through Saturday afternoons starting December 2nd through January 15th.

With the inn magically decorated for the holiday season, warm fires glowing, gingerbread houses lovingly adorned and the music of harpist Faith Leitner playing in the background, an atmosphere of luxury and relaxation surrounds you. While you chose from a wide variety of Harney and Sons teas, traditional English tea sandwiches, scones, sweet cream, jam and decadent pastries are being served. The conversation and laughter echoes through the inn’s rooms reminding us of what the holiday season is truly about; spending quality time with friends and loved ones. Come treat yourself to an escape from ‘it all’ while rejuvenating and recharging yourself.

Reservations are required for these teas, which have proven to be increasingly popular over the years. For further information or to reserve your table, please call 860-434-1667.
