The Williams House always decorates for the holidays in style and has been known locally as the “Christmas House” since before Byron and Deborah were the owners. Each year we repeat some of our favorite decorations while Deborah always creates a few surprises and changes to enhance the guest experience. This year we have a major candy theme going and if Deborah can just keep the dishes filled (as Byron grazes by) guests will enjoy it. It all fit together well for last weekend’s cookie/house tour of all the B&B’s, and if our comments were accurate from visitors we were voted most beautifully decorated. It’s a pleasure to feel all the hard work and decorating is appreciated and we enjoy hearing comments when visitors enter the main hall for our winter wonderland! I’ve attached some pictures below for those who weren’t able to attend are won’t be joining us before the decorations come down in Jaanuary.
