6.49km from Armstrong ParkAfter several attempts and reschedules for my wife and I to visit by ourselves, we finally made it, with our children, and yet the visit was still wonderful. A little snowy weather gave the venture a Christmasy feel to it. My children were in complete awe of the massive house which was built in the 1890’s. And as the website describes, my wife and I felt like we we embraced in a warm hug the second we walked in. The decoration is beautiful and calming. The lighting inside was suttle and warm. The view of downtown Racine from the house was perfect and not overwhelming. And as for our room, massive, comfortable and very relaxing. The beds were very comfortable, the room itself was arranged like a small studio apartment that you would see in a movie or something. Now the part that made our stay really nice was the fact that the owner Pamela (the owner of The Christmas House) was able to set up child care for a few hours for my wife and I to go out for dinner. It’s not something that she advertised and wasn’t something we asked for but we were delighted that she was willing to go the extra mile, or 10 miles in this case, to make our stay that much more enjoyable. Our children were very well taken care of and enjoyed the opportunity to have someone else to play games with. The following morning, we were served a 5 course breakfast with a bowl of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon mini potatoes, and delicious cinnamon pancakes. It really was a nice way to cap off our short visit to the B&B. If you’re looking for somewhere to go any season of the year, whether it’s just yourself, with a significant other, the whole family (extended or immediate), or looking for a beautiful place to host a work event, look no further than The Christmas House. You won’t regret it.
