Staying in the Santa Suite - The Inn at Christmas Place

Okay, we are a bit weird. We decided to spend Halloween at The Inn at Christmas Place. The Inn at Christmas Place is like Christmas every day of the year. But we couldn't stay in just any room. We had the Santa Suite to ourselves! Christmas decorations were everywhere and creepy little elves watched our every move.

We took the chairlift up to Anakeesta in Gatlinburg, Tennesee to check out their progress. The park had been open just a little over a year when we visited.


We spent an enjoyable afternoon at Ciderfest in Asheville, North Carolina this afternoon. We were very glad that we purchased the VIT package. The Very Important Taster package gives you on-site parking and allows you to enter the festival an hour early. The lines get real long once the general public is allowed to enter.
