One of the highlights of the Christmas in St. Michaels weekend is the Tour of Homes. In one of the longest running home tours in Maryland, both historic homes in the village and some very special countryside homes are featured.
The Tour of Homes takes place during select hours on Saturday and Sunday, with limited tickets available for advanced online purchase. The $25 per person ticket includes a one-time admission to all tour homes; transportation to the countryside homes; a detailed tour guide booklet with local information, detailed home and other major St. Michaels landmark descriptions; and free admission to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum for Saturday and Sunday.
The houses in town are within walking distance of each other, which gives visitors a great opportunity to stroll through town and soak up the historic atmosphere. Most of the homes, built in the 18th and 19th centuries, had at one time been the residences of watermen and seafarers. Many of these homes have since been restored, expanded, and adapted to today’s life style.
The countryside homes are located just outside of town, often situated on expansive waterfront settings. These houses should not be missed, as they employ exquisite architectural details and are creatively set amidst the Eastern Shore landscape.
