Mount Baker Home Tour and Arts & Crafts Fair 2019
Saturday, December 7th, 2019
The Mount Baker Home Tour and accompanying Art & Craft Fair is one of our most popular and long-running programs. The owners of some of Mount Baker's most beautiful and historic homes will generously open their doors, and allow the community to view the homes, their breathtaking period details, and elegant grounds.
We'll also be hosting an Art & Craft Fair at the Clubhouse so you can get some of your holiday shopping done while you enjoy complimentary tea, coffee & cookies. Stop by the Clubhouse throughout the day to enjoy what’s on offer.
This year's Home Tour will feature five stunning homes across differing architectural styles as well as a 1925 Italian Romanesque-style church and the historically designated Clubhouse. The tour begins and ends at the Clubhouse, which was designed by Charles Dose in the rustic Craftsman style typical of the 1910s.
Love the Mount Baker Home Tour?!! WE NEED YOUR HELP with cookie donations!
The Home Tour is looking to be the busiest one ever. Tickets are selling fast. We always put out cookies for our visitors and so are asking for any baking neighbors to donate some goodies to the event.
All cookies will be gratefully received. Just drop them off the night before the Tour, Friday 6th December between 5-7pm, or on the morning of the event - 10am onwards.
Thanks in anticipation of your help and cookies!!
