Join us from mid-November through December 31st to experience the magic — visit our specials and packages page to book your stay with us and receive FREE tickets to Gardens Aglow this season! 

The Gardens offers events and programs for all ages in all seasons. Exhibits featuring New England’s finest artists change several times each season.
