There are few better locations for a real Victorian high tea than historic Connell House, a restored 19th-century Greek Revival gem found in downtown Woodstock. The story-telling waitstaff are dressed in period costumes, and the menu rings true, right down to homemade scones with clotted cream. You’ll meet locals who frequent the dining room, and enjoy discreet musical accompaniment to your meal. After lunch, a guided tour of the historic mansion’s exhibits or a walking tour of other architectural treasures throughout the downtown will cap off a perfect afternoon idyll.
