Christmas Gift & Getaway 2023

Christmas Gift & Getaway 2023

We are really excited to announce that we are doing our first ever Experience weekend. The theme: Christmas. Everyone loves Christmas and getting ready for it can be crazy. So, we want to offer you a fun and relaxing weekend. 

Get some shopping done, meet some local artisans and businesses, and make a weekend of it. In this blog I’ll walk you through what to expect on the weekend of November 24-26. Please note, anyone that purchases the experience package with their weekend stay has this all included in the price of the package. A price breakdown can be found on our website if you would like more details.

For those who want to know the weekend schedule, this is day 1. Starting at 3pm participating guests, and out of town artisans, can check into their room. If you choose, you can go out for a quick supper before we kick things off with a mix and mingle. Grab some snacks, get to know others, or just chat with your group. Then head into our pop up movie theatre for a classic Christmas movie. Don’t forget to grab your movie snacks. Hit the hotel store if you need more snacks for the movie. After the movie, head to your rooms for a good night's rest. It’s going to be a busy day tomorrow.

What better way to kick off the day than with a hearty breakfast! We pride ourselves on serving a full, fresh, hot breakfast every morning. This morning, if you purchased our experience package, you get a special breakfast. How do fresh homemade cinnamon buns sound? Our assistant manager also got the Christmas Blend coffee from Stone City Roasters, so enjoy a cup of that with your breakfast. Hashbrown casserole, ham and more. The Christmas Breakfast will be served in a separate room between 8am and 9am for participating guests and artisans that purchased the vendor package. After breakfast all the artisans arrive to set up for the Christmas Market. This event will go from 12pm-5pm. Plenty of time to check out all the artisans and get some Christmas shopping done. All this is while you’re supporting local businesses.

During this time, participating guests will also take part in one of two experiences. We have partnered with Sunshine Greenhouse and they will be running some workshops where you can build your own wreath. Wreath making is not your thing? We also have two women coming to offer you a spa/relaxing/healing experience. Enjoy a 1 hour session and leave feeling energised and relaxed. Sign up for these two experiences will be at check in on the 24th and are only for participating guests who have purchased the package. 

The market is open to the public, with a $2 entrance fee per person. Depending on availability, our two assistant managers will also be offering a free tour of the hotel, the different styles of rooms we have, and answering any questions you might have. Tour is available to all guests and the public.

At 5pm we shut down the market and participating guests can head to their rooms and get ready for our semi-formal tasting event. Artisans who purchased the Vendor Package are also able to take part in the tasting event. Again, we partnered with local businesses for this. Enjoy an evening of samples and talking with local businesses about their business and what they have to offer. There will also be a demonstration of how to build 2 different types of charcuterie boards. This event is open to the public as well, as long as you purchase tickets in advance. Limited tickets can be purchased at the hotel, or at the different businesses. The list of businesses can be found on our website. Tickets are $20 for the public and remember, they are limited. Get yours before they’re gone.

You have now made it the end of your experience weekend. Enjoy a hotel breakfast before checking out with happy hearts and fond memories made with family or friends.

As we say goodbye to you, we hope to begin planning another experience weekend and get feedback on what you would like to see next year.
