If you ask anyone who knows me they all know I am Christmas obsessed, you will catch me watching Christmas movies year-round, especially Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas movies. If you want to get into the argument the Nightmare Before Christmas is a 100% Christmas movie with me…bring it on. Anyway, the season of cheer is one of my favorite times of the year. So when I heard about this collaboration between Club Wyndham and Hallmark Channel this is literally a dream come true.
Club Wyndham, one of the nation’s largest vacation clubs and the brand that knows the best way to spread Christmas cheer, has partnered with Hallmark Channel to conjure the joy and magic of Countdown to Christmas with three, custom-designed suites at Club Wyndham’s timeshare resorts in New York City, Nashville, Tennessee, and Vail, Colorado.
Each location has its own theme inspired by Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas movie lineup. In New York City enjoy a Classic Hallmark Channel Christmas, the inspiration in Nashville is a Country Christmas, and in Vail enjoy a Snowy Mountain Christmas. Each suite was custom designed by Hallmark Channel’s head of design and features fully-equipped kitchens for cookie making and separate living and dining spaces adorned with festive décor, as well as an ornament crafting station, hot cocoa station, gingerbread house kits, wrapped presents under Christmas trees and, of course, a Hallmark Channel holiday movie collection (popcorn and candy included!) for the ultimate binge-watching session. All three suites will feature a scent machine that will fill the room with guests’ favorite holiday smells – gingerbread, anyone? – and a floor-to-ceiling backdrop from a Hallmark Channel movie scene for the perfect Instagram-able moment.
Guests will also enjoy unique festive experiences specific to their chosen destination. In Vail, a shower full of “snowballs” and falling snow replicated by a light projector is an homage to the “Snowy Mountain Christmas” theme, while a mailbox marked “Letters to Santa” and stationery to write a Christmas wish list in New York City is a nod to “Classic Hallmark Channel Christmas” traditions. Finally, Music City guests can revel in the Nashville suite’s country cottage feel – complete with turquoise and plaid accents – while accessing their favorite “Country Christmas” songs on demand.
Guests will also receive a keepsake gift basket featuring a Hallmark Keepsake ornament, Hallmark Channel wine, Hallmark holiday cards, and more. “Our viewers are always looking for new ways to engage with Countdown to Christmas, and these Club Wyndham suites allow fans the opportunity to step inside the charm and cheer of our holiday movies,” said Crown Media Chief Marketing Officer, Lara Richardson. “Our holiday programming lineup is the foundation of Countdown to Christmas, and in recent years we have expanded the franchise beyond the screen to include wine, tea, games, music, home décor, kitchen products, wearables, and more. Our partnership with Club Wyndham is the ultimate immersive experience and another way Hallmark Channel puts love and holiday cheer into the world.”
Each suite sleeps up to four guests, and reservations for all three selections will be available to book starting at 9:00 a.m. on November 1, for two-and-three-night stays from November 12 through January 1. Rates start at $295 per night*. The suites will be available exclusively for Club Wyndham vacation club members on select dates throughout November and December.
