We are a 2013 TripAdvisor Top 25 Hotel!

We are so proud to announce that we have once again been chosen as a Top 25 Hotel by TripAdvisor® in the 2013 Travelers’ Choice® awards.

The Inn at Christmas Place

Now in its eleventh year, the annual TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honor the world’s best hotels.  The awards are earned from those who know them best – real travelers.  Unlike any other hotel awards programs in the world, TripAdvisor® Travelers’ Choice® winners are based on the millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions about hotels on tripadvisor.com and content from across the web.  The Inn at Christmas Place is ranked 25th in the Top 25 Hotels in the United States.

We send out a great big “Thank you!” to our guests, who have recently complemented us with comments such as “Enchanting,” “Our new favorite,” “I do believe this is the happiest place on earth,” “We visit again and again,” and “Paradise.”  We’re still working our way up the list – and we believe #1 is definitely an achievable goal.

Since we opened in 2007, our owners, the Biggs, Barnes, and Rodriguez families, and our General Manager Ray Ogle have always made hospitality, service, and luxurious comfort the priorities at The Inn, and our guests definitely notice the difference – and thank us for it with many return visits.

Have you tried our Sleep in Heavenly Peace bedding?  Do you have a favorite Christmas room or suite?  (I choose room 525 – with the big balcony overlooking the mountains.)  Do you come especially for a Santa concert, or for our Christmas in July and December concerts and activities exclusively for guests?  And, really, who else is going to make sure there are Hershey’s KISSES® in your room every night?

Sweet Treats!

“TripAdvisor is once again thrilled to recognize the world’s most outstanding hotels with the help of more than 75 million reviews and opinions from travelers around the globe,” said Christine Petersen, president, TripAdvisor for Business.  “From the best bargain hotels to top luxury properties, outstanding service, value and quality are the hallmarks of our Travelers’ Choice winners.”

Sadly, I don’t think we’ll be able to move the hotel from Pigeon Forge to Hawaii anytime soon …

Thanks again to all our wonderful guests, who keep coming back and who tell others about the terrific time you’ve had when you’ve stayed with us.  We really love y’all, too!

P.S.  Have you booked your Valentine’s Getaway yet?  We may still have a sweet room just for you.  Check out our Romance & Valentines specials.

Iago & Snowmageddon!

Want to see some pictures from our fast and furious 24 hour snow event?  (Click on each picture to see a larger view.)

(Only footsteps.  The car had to overnight in a parking lot a mile away – DOWNHILL from the house…)


It’s amazing that most of the images look like black-and-white photos – but they aren’t!

Diamonds scattered across the snow!

Rootin’ for Regen!

Christmas Place is joining with the Sevier County community, businesses and individuals, in raising support for Regen, the young man with brain tumors.  This Friday through Sunday, we’ll donate a portion of our sales to the fund to help cover his extensive medical bills.

If you’d like to make a personal donation, SmartBank has set up a fund for Regen.

Yes, believe it or not, we even love taking inventory for Santa around here.  I mean, just look at all these smiling faces.  Clearly, it is a joyous time of year for us all!  (The sugar cookies with icing and chocolate sprinkles sure did help a lot, too.)

All this elfin fun happening behind the scenes here at the store – would you believe it?!  Now, someone, please bring me a sharpened pencil and another roll of tape, thank you…
