SUMMIT – There's only one week to go before the holiday festivities begin at Reeves-Reed Arboretum.

Thursday December 8, tour five fabulous homes on the Arboretum's annual Holiday House Tour. Regarded as the premier holiday house tour of the region, this year's tour showcases five elegant, splendid and inviting homes decked out in holiday finery for your self-guided tour.

Take a break from the tour with lunch at Beacon Hill Club, and stop over at Wisner House for our festive holiday boutique where a select group of vendors will offer the best in one-of-a-kind holiday gifts, artisanal products, and unique wreaths and tabletop arrangements (created by our very own horticultural staff).

Naughty or nice – on Saturday morning, December 10, Santa Claus will be on hand from 10 am to 2 pm, for Cookies & Cocoa with Santa. Bring along your very special Christmas list and share some quality time – and a picture – with the jolly man himself.

Want something more than just cookies and cocoa? Then stop by the Arboretum Saturday evening, December 10, at 7 pm for an intimate concert with international jazz superstar Cyrille Aimée, followed immediately by Vodka & Latkes (the adult version of cookies and cocoa)!

So the countdown is on – just 8 days left before the tour, and 10 days before Santa & Cyrille. Order your tickets now by going to our website,, or by calling Office Manager, Doreen Schindler, 908-273-8787 x 1010.
