LOVING Christmas can be a lonely obsession – while most of us are happy to celebrate come December, there are plenty of fans who like feeling festive out of season.
But there is one hotel in New England which has always got their back – The Christmas Farm Inn And Spa.
The quaint country property, which was first built in 1786, was given the name after the farm was gifted as a Christmas present, and it has been known that way ever since.
While the owners go full-blown festive once the season starts, they "have a touch of the season" all year round – book here.
For example, when booking guests can choose from a range of rooms all named after Christmas themes, like Mr and Mrs Claus, Blitzen, Three Wise Men, Vixen and Sleigh Bells.
Staff aim to provide what they call a quintessential New England experience, saying: "In the Spirit of Christmas, we celebrate the simple pleasures of life every day: friends, family, fun, love, adventure and wellbeing."
As well as the themed rooms, guests can enjoy the large living room with a log fire with home baked goodies from the kitchen, coffee and cookies from a rocking-chair on the front porch, or a drink in the Mistletoe Pub.
Front desk manager Brittany said: "[While] we are the Christmas Farm Inn & Spa, we do not ‘deck the halls’ all year round – we are more about the ‘Christmas Spirit’ than the decorations.
"We do have nuances around the property all year round, Just look at some of our room names (Mr & Mrs. Claus is a popular one)."
The inn also sponsors the Annual Journey to the North Pole, which departs each November and December from two locations in the White Mountains of northern New Hampshire and includes an evening train ride, a bunch of elves and Santa.
