Four homes, decorated for the season, will be open to the public Saturday, Dec. 7, for a holiday house tour to benefit Cutchogue-New Suffolk Historical Council. Each venue will host a wine tasting, appetizers and desserts, and each will be paired with a vineyard, restaurant or business that will offer specials that day for ticketholders. 

Tour stops include three bed and breakfasts — Andrew’s Legacy, Sannino Vineyard and The Farmhouse — and the home of Conni Cross. The Farmhouse B&B is a U.S. Marines Toys for Tots dropoff. Other stops are Santa’s Christmas Tree Farm and the historical council, where Santa will make an appearance. The event will end on the Cutchogue Village Green with carols, a tree-lighting and refreshments.

The tour begins at 12:30 p.m., with the last entry at 3:30. Tickets, which must be bought in advance, are $50. Call Joyce at 631-734-8539.

The annual holiday house tour hosted by Oysterponds Historical Society is set for noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14. A variety of old and new homes in Orient and East Marion will be featured. Refreshments will be available at Oysterponds School, where the PTA will also hold a holiday auction.

Advance tickets, at $25, may be bought at oysterpondshistoricalsociety.org; tour-day tickets are $30 and will be available at Orient Congregational Church on Main Road. Call 631-323-2480.
