Located in the popular tourist destination of Pigeon Forge, the Inn at Christmas Place has established itself as a favorite with travelers, earning multiple awards including four-time Traveler’s Choice by TripAdvisor, Top 10 Best Property in America by Trivago and #1 Hotel for Families in the Southeast by Family Vacation Critic. And with just one visit to this unique property, you’ll see why.
From the moment you drive onto the property, you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported into Old World Germany at Christmastime. From the Bavarian architecture and beautiful landscaping out front to the lobby’s grand fireplace and Glockenspiel – a massive handmade cuckoo clock that plays Christmas carols and strikes the time each hour – there’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere everywhere you look.
The hotel itself features a variety of amenities like a daily hot breakfast, a fitness center, an indoor pool with hot tub, a seasonal outdoor pool with a waterslide, a courtyard with a pond and a full-service business center. But, the most popular amenities for visitors by far, are the character visits that happen every morning, seven days a week (from June to December), and “The Singing Santa” who visits on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday nights for Christmas songs and stories in the hotel’s lower lobby.
But the Christmas spirit doesn’t end once you leave the lobby. There is plenty more festiveness to be found in your guest room – including wreaths, gas fireplaces with decorated mantels and even fully decorated Christmas trees. If you really want to go all out, check out the Santa Suite that’s filled with special holiday décor including large Santa statues, and even includes a special gift from the big guy himself.
Even though the hotel celebrates the Christmas spirit every day of the year, you can enjoy some of their special events throughout the year like Christmas in July – a summertime celebration with daily events and entertainment, Mountain Fest – a celebration of autumn that features local artisans and musicians, and Gerald Charles Dickens – the great great grandson of the famous British novelist who delivers a captivating performance of A Christmas Carol in his one-man show every November.
But, no trip to the Inn would be complete without visiting its namesake across the street – The Incredible Christmas Place. This unique shopping destination is the largest permanent Christmas retailer in the South, one of the largest in the United States and is the most popular store in the Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg area. Also designed like a Bavarian village, this place has everything Christmas-related that you could ever want, whether you like traditional, old-school decorations or whimsical, modern décor. You’ll find everything from lights and ornaments, to snowmen, nativity scenes and much more. And of course, visits with Santa Claus.
