Celebrate the Holidays at the Clifton Inn

Midnight raids on the cookie jar at The Clifton Inn are a time honored tradition for guests at the Relais & Châteaux property located in picturesque Charlottesville, Virginia. While guests are nestled all snug in their beds, Clifton understands that occasionally visions of sweet treats may dance in their heads. From traditional classics that evoke childhood memories like Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin, to more sophisticated holiday favorites including White Chocolate Macadamia Nut and Cranberry, Pecan Chocolate Chip, the over-sized glass jar perched in the open kitchen is constantly stocked and welcomes late night visits. 
As guests prepare to fill their own kitchens this holiday season, turkey and some mistletoe may make the season bright, but Clifton has wrapped up a festive package sure to dazzle. With Clifton’s Deck the Halls package, available from December 17-19, guests can forget about chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and pick up some epicurean pointers at Clifton’s holiday dinner cooking demo with executive chef Tucker Yoder. In addition to the festive demo, the two night package includes a gingerbread house-making workshop with pastry chef Christine Ward, as well as a three-course dinner for two in addition to daily made-to-order breakfast and afternoon tea.
Whether it’s sating a sweet tooth in the wee hours of the morning, creating a gingerbread house reminiscent of the one that grandma used to have, or even just “the sunshine of a friendly gaze,” there’s something about Clifton that just makes guests feel right at home, [even while they roam,] during the holidays.
