There's a very special place in Tennessee that celebrates the Christmas spirit all year long. The Inn at Christmas Place has been bringing Christmas magic to visitors of Pigeon Forge, Tenn. since 2007. The 145-room resort keeps guests coming back with Christmas events and charming decorations 365 days a year.
Christmastime welcomes guests even before entering into the lobby with rotating themes at the entrance throughout the year, such as Christmas carolers and toy soldiers.
Inside is bursting with Christmas embellishments as well as a beautifully decorated tree. The lobby also boasts a two-story Glockenspiel clock that plays Christmas carols every hour on the hour.
Only those staying at The Inn at Christmas Place are lucky enough to catch a visit from the "Singing Santa." Multiple nights a week Santa Clause stops by the lobby and plays guitar and sings Christmas carols for guests.
