Enjoy a house and garden tour of Roseland Cottage in Woodstock, CT. Built in 1846 in the Gothic Revival style, Roseland Cottage was the summer home of Henry and Lucy Bowen and their young family. Tour the colorful interior, featuring elaborate wall coverings, heavily patterned carpets, and stained glass, much of which survives unchanged from the Victorian era. In the garden, explore the picturesque landscape featuring original boxwood-edged parterre gardens with twenty-one flowerbeds and more than 4,000 annuals in their original 1850 pattern. After our tours, enjoy a high tea lunch in the carriage house. On our return, we’ll stop at Logee’s Home & Garden featuring several greenhouses (ferns, herbs, flowering plants, bonsai, and cacti, to name a few) and their extensive retail shop. After a tour of the greenhouses, there will be free time to explore the grounds and a $5 coupon to spend at the retail shop. Bring your planting wish list!
