Lyme/Old Lyme Auxiliary Presents “Kitchens of Lyme” – Kitchen Tour

June 21, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Lyme, Connecticut

$25 per ticket if purchased in advance; $30 the day of the tour

The Lyme/Old Lyme Auxiliary will host “Kitchens of Lyme,” a tour of six beautifully appointed kitchens. Explore the area along quiet country roads of Lyme with views of Hamburg Cove and the Connecticut River.

You will see a balance of “whimsy” and “wow” in the use of space in the different homes. The kitchens range in size from a little jewel with a charming marble wall picturing distant hills to a contemporary kitchen/family room housed in a large, old stone artist’s studio. A gourmet cook’s kitchen includes a wood burning stove and overstuffed chairs with beautiful views out the double French doors. A newer kitchen features reclaimed timbers and floors, high ceilings, and a fireplace, while an antique one includes gorgeous old copper pots and pans that create the feeling of gracious living in a time long past.

It will be a lovely day, enjoying the countryside and gathering ideas to take home.  Whether you are a gourmet chef or more interested in décor, you are sure to find inspiration visiting the “Kitchens of Lyme.”

Lunch by the Cove or in Town

The “Munchies Truck” will provide delicious lunches for sale at the Hamburg Cove Yacht Club in Lyme, where you can enjoy your picnic at the tables by the water.  You may also arrange lunch at one of our area restaurants.
