Christmas Magic: Victorian Christmas Getaway
The Victorians left little untouched and neither do we!
We invite you to experience a delightful Victorian Christmas Getaway at our uniquely restored Bed and Breakfast. Christmastime each year at The Empress of Little Rock, Arkansas is a special affair, just as it was for the Victorians. For days just after Thanksgiving, there is a flurry of activity as live greens cascade the porches and garland flies up over pictures and peer mirrors.
From the magnificently ornamented tree in the Empress Sitting parlor that turns as you are greeted by tiny porcelain dolls, handmade ornaments, and items from nature, to the small electric train that circles the tree to the elegant feather tree in the ladies parlor with snippets of Victorian paper, scarlet ribbons, gold candle clamps with real 3” candles and creatively made cotton batting ornaments that will delight the even oldest “child” among you. Every guest room at the inn has its own themed tree to create magic throughout the entire mansion.
Breakfast is a festive affair with some special hand made surprises for our guests. And old-fashioned homemade eggnog- tested at the local “Nogoff” at the Historic Arkansas Museum, will challenge your ideas about this well known holiday treat at our social hour from 4-5 p.m. and make your Victorian Christmas Getaway a truly memorable experience.
