It's Christmas All Year Round At This Hotel And We Need To Go Now
We've all got that one mate that's Christmas-obsessed. You know, that plays Michael Bublé in their car from November, watches Elf mid-summer and drinks Baileys all-year round kinda type.
Well if your mate was a hotel they'd be The Inn At Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
The unique Christmas-themed hotel celebrates the festive period all year round, and honestly we feel warm and fuzzy inside just looking at it.
The outside of the hotel is decked out in enough Christmas lights to make Martha May Whovier envious, while the interiors are next level festive. Think faux shrubbery, tinsel, baubles, beads, fairy lights and a wreath so enormous it looks as if its made up of ten average-sized wreaths. There's also two cosy fireplaces in the lobby.
Stay at the hotel and you'll get a complimentary hot breakfast with actual visits from Christmas characters including Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Guests will also get to enjoy a performance by a two-story wooden glockenspiel that plays on the hour every hour from 9am until 9pm. There is LITERALLY NO BREAK FROM THE YULETIDE GLEE.
The hotel's mini-suites are described as "warm and welcoming" and feature a full-size decorated Christmas tree, an in-room whirlpool tub and gas fireplace, while the two-room suites have TWO full-size decorated Christmas trees (because one just isn't enough), kitchen with full-size appliances, and a sleeper sofa in the sitting room.
The guest rooms feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, microwaves, and mini-fridges.
"This hotel is nothing short of a North Pole fantasy. Beautiful decorations throughout the hotel. We enjoyed taking an hour or two just going around looking at all the decor," wrote one satisfied guest.
"The programs they have for children are wonderful, and my teenage sons enjoyed the pool area. EVERYONE is so very nice and courteous there. The breakfast they have is the nicest one we've ever had at a hotel or motel. The surroundings are awesome," gushed another.
"What a great place to visit to experience Christmas year-round. The decorations were beautiful. Not only are there decorations in the lobby, there are also decorations by every elevator, up the hallways, and in the rooms as well (we had a little Christmas tree above the TV in our room and Christmas pillows/blanket on the bed)," raved a third.
Obviously travelling all the way to Tennessee requires a certain level of dedication, with flights ranging from $700-$2500, but the city of Pigeon Forge is also home to Dollywood, so you could quite easily get two major things ticked off the bucket list.
If not, there's only 146 days until Christmas, guys.
