Welcome to

The after party


Prolong the Celebration

Our historic Christmas House Inn & Gardens comes with a unique feature to enhance your experience. Each wedding includes a complimentary one-night stay in one of our suites and breakfast the following morning for the newlyweds. You also have the option to spend that evening with your friends and family with our after party. For only $500, you get use of all six of our rooms, pizza after the reception, and a gourmet breakfast the following morning.


Bride's choice

The Celebration Suite


Originally the master suite, this two-room suite is now used as the bridal dressing room and is often chosen as the wedding night suite. The English wing mirror dresser, Victorian fainting couch, grand framed full-length mirror, and chandeliers make this room photo ready before the reception, while two fireplaces and the queen-sized bronze canopy bed create a romantic setting for the wedding night.

Private Garden

The Garden Suite


This suite was created in the 1930s when the family enclosed part of the veranda. The room features a queen-sized white iron bed and French-style black and white toile linens. The bathroom has retained its original charm with black and white tile and a hexagonal tiled bath floor. The main attraction of this room is the French doors that lead to a private garden courtyard with a gazebo-enclosed hot tub.

Sweet Memories



Originally the nursery, this sweet, smaller bedroom features a fireplace with carved bows and ribbons, originally painted in pink and blue. The room now showcases our collection of vintage framed handkerchiefs and the remains of the Whitson family china, which gives the room its name, Heirloom.

Local History



This room was once the nanny’s room, but it is now a tribute to the history of both the Christmas House and Cucamonga. The room is decorated with old photos of the town and local wineries. The name harkens back to when the ranch’s original use was an 80-acre vineyard.

the "Grande Dame"

Elizabeth's Room


Elizabeth Whitson, the last “grande dame” of the Christmas House and the namesake of this room, said that it used to house the summer kitchen. Now, the only hint of this room’s past is a 1733 Parisian cast iron fireplace stove. The vintage English black iron bed and black crystal chandelier give the room an Old-World, romantic ambience, though the show-stopping feature is something brand new – an outdoor garden shower for two with a waterfall showerhead.

Masculine Retreat

The Carriage Room


The original 1904 carriage house has become a secluded oasis, often chosen by the couple for their wedding night. Where the carriages once parked, there is now a 1902 cast iron fireplace stove, and a sitting area complete with a classic movie collection and a popcorn popper! But the best feature of this room isn’t in the carriage house at all – the private courtyard features a redwood gazebo and a hot tub.


The after party was the perfect touch. Gave just enough time to eat and relax with the bridal party.

We are from out of state, so we loved having the option of having our friends stay overnight with us.
