~The Incredible Christmas Place Inn~

I shared with you, in my last post that we had just had our annual marriage retreat with our Church, in Pigeon Forge, TN....This year it was at The Inn at Christmas Place! Incredible is the only word I can think of to describe this place! It is open all year and they stay booked! It is decorated with Christmas decor through out! Some of the rooms even have Christmas Trees in them. Pigeon Forge is known for Dolly Wood {Dolly Parton} theme park, but also when we think of Pigeon Forge around here, we also think of Christmas! Christmas lights and festive decor goes up in October and doesn't come down until after Valentines Day. It's often referred to as Winter Fest. Needless to say....Christmas is a major event in this neck of the woods. I do hope you enjoy the tour and if you ever have plans to come to this area...make sure you check this place out! The first 7 pictures I grabbed from The Christmas Place Inn ....the ones I took are enlargeable if you click on them.

This is one of the 2 lobbies inside the hotel. That huge clock you see is 3 stories high and it chimes and plays Christmas music every hr.

This is the front lobby.

Front lobby again....

This is the dining room. They serve the best Breakfast here!
The court yard
The next pictures I took and are clickable.

I hope if you click on this pic you can see the detail on those doors. This is where you enter the hotel.

The entry again

Front fireplace mantel decor.

One of the many trees.

That huge clock again.

Decorations on one of the trees above and below.....

Looking down into the back lobby....this is the tree that I just showed you the close up of the decorations.

This is a to die for Vignette.

You gotta click on this picture above....the details are amazing!!!!!!

This is a beautiful vignette and My picture doesn't do it justice.

This picture was made looking out of our window in our room. This is a shopping village across the street, from the hotel, named....The Christmas Place. It is mostly Christmas, but there are a few speciality shops in there and there is also a Vera Bradley store there. This is open year round as well and a must stop!!!

Hallway leading to our room....

Cute pillow in the chair that was in our room.

Even the lamps are decorated.

A card and candy left by the cleaning staff! Oh, and yes, yes, yes, This place is CLEAN!!!! I always check out the cleanliness first! I have been known to sleep in the car until I could find a clean place....I just can't stay some where that smells or is unkempt, but that's another post for another time....lol I have to tell you when you walk in the hotel....it even smells like Christmas!!!! I am not kidding! And the staff at this place is incredible!!!! I guess that's some of the reasons it is called The Incredible Inn at the Christmas Place!!!!!!

This is the little kitchen area in our room. I think most all the rooms have them. Most all the rooms also have fire places and Jacuzzis. We waited to late this yr to get one of the better rooms, but this was still a fantastic room!

Room Decorations......

Our bathroom~

Another bathroom pic....nothing is left un-decorated!

Top of the TV cabinet~ Told you nothing un-decorated!
That sums up the Christmas Place Inn Tour~ It really is a magnificent place, and we had a magnificent marriage retreat!!!! There were approx 50 couples from our church that attended. Every year...I leave saying, that was the best one and I always think it will never be topped, but I am always wrong! This was the best year! I hope to share with you some of the thoughts from the retreat very soon!
Many of you have ask about Hoss and Lucy...They are growing like weeds and doing wonderful!!! They just went to the groomers again today, I just can't stand for them to wait too long without a bath. We have noticed that they are starting to settle down a bit....maybe, they are getting use to us or maybe it's their age...what ever the reason I am thrilled....lol :) Thank you all so much for asking, I will keep you posted!
I plan to spend the next couple of days berried in a few projects I need to get done....I will share them with you soon! Reminder: Post 100 is coming soon...keep watching for the giveaway!
Blessings to you all, Nancy

Thanks so much for sharing these beautiful pictures.

My husband and I looked them over and believe that may be the place we spend our 30th anniversary this year.

We spent some time right across the street two summers ago and enjoyed ourselves so much...I only got pictures of the outside of this beautiful hotel.

We got rained out of Dollywood so I've wanted to go back and try it again for sure.

Thanks again for sharing!

How breath taking are those pictures, we have not stayed at the Christmas Inn, but after seeing those pics, I think we must give it a try. Thanks for the update on Hoss and Lucy!

As a lover of all things christmas, this just looks to me like the best place to stay! I will have to tell my husband about it. I guess we'd have to wait a good while to go, so we'd better make our reservations now. Thanks for sharing this. laurie
