Enjoy one of the most lavish hotels of America’s Gilded Age dating back to 1913 - see their rich woodwork, mosaic and terrazzo floors, handcrafted chandeliers, and gilded hallways, which had been created by a host of French and Italian craftsmen. An extensive $40 million restoration has returned the lobby to its original grandeur.
Stay two nights in one of their luxury guestroom which has been sumptuously refurbished and enjoy dinner in the magnificent “Green Room”. This historic hotel showcases original paintings of nationally recognized artists, including three generations of Wyeths. Hotel Du Pont has hosted Prince Rainier of Monaco, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Prince Bertil of Sweden, President John F. Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Henry Kissinger just to name a few.
Enjoy a visit to Hagley Museum, what you discover here will put your entire trip into context. It is here that the du Pont family first settled in America, built their first home, and began the black powder manufacturing business that became the foundation for all the other du Pont enterprises in the world. The legacy of Hagley and the early family can then be seen in the splendor of our neighbor’s at places like Longwood Gardens and Nemours Mansion.
We will experience the joys of the season with poinsettias, magnificent trees and fragrant flowers that transforms Longwood Gardens Conservatory into a holiday wonderland. Outside, colorful fountains dance to festive music, strolling carolers herald the season with song and a half-million twinkling lights await us.
Nemour Mansion will show us how successful this family had become all decorated for the holidays along with Chauffeur’s Garage housing a collection of vintage automobiles used on the Estate.
We will end our 3 day trip with a Holiday show at the Pines Dinner Theatre filled with some of our most favorite songs before heading home.
