On Saturday, December 9, you can marvel at the magic of the holiday season with the East Hampton Chamber of Commerce by exploring some of the East End's most beautiful gems, which will be fully decked out for the holidays, when the Chamber presents the annual East Hampton B & B and Historical Places Tour.

"We hope locals and visitors will come tour our world class B & B's and Inns of East Hampton," shared Chamber Executive Director, Steve Ringel. "Doors open to the public at 12 p.m. and there'll be fires in the fireplace, refreshments and Christmas decorations galore." And, if you're not sold yet, the admission fee (or lack of) will have you marking your calendar. "It's free!" Ringel explained.

Whether you plan on visiting a few of your favorite local spots or discovering a new destination, you'll be met with boundless festive cheer, and maybe even a sensational sweet or two. "Stop by Guild Hall to view the exhibitions and enjoy holiday cookies!" encourages Barbara-Jo Howard, Director of Marketing & Communications at Guild Hall.

For many participants, this jubilant event offers a unique way to celebrate the area and merriment of this time of the year. "Every year The 1770 House opens its doors to share the warmth, charm and history of the Inn, along with fabulous cookies," explained The 1770 House Innkeeper Randye Lordon. "There is no question that winter seems to bring to the fore the feel of old East Hampton. There is no better way to embrace it than a visit to the many inns that were once private homes."
