Most Comfortable Beds; Breakfast Such a Treat

4.2 on July 29, 2018

All rooms on third floor, so must be able to climb many stairs for coming and going. Recently stayed in the Studio Suite, which worked well for us and the room was quiet and very clean. The beds were so comfortable and really lent to a good night's sleep (adjustable base, very nice). Breakfast was tremendous; fresh fruit, bacon, sausage, 2 egg bakes, muffins, coffee, several juices. Nice selection of tea and coffee in room. Only bar soap offered in room, shampoo by request. Extender cord for light on the fan/light combo would be helpful.

Lovely old house with many antiques

Loved sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and our innkeeper extended herself beyond the call of duty. also a realtor so if you are looking to move to Racine this is the place to stay.

Wonderful breakfast!

Anne took great care of us when we were there. Her breakfasts were delicious. She was very willing to accommodate us when we had to leave early on Sunday morning. Thank you so much for making our stay enjoyable.

Best place to stay in Racine!

Stayed two nights and absolutely loved it. So fun to have Christmas decorations up in October! Owners went out of their way to make my 8-year-old nephew's experience memorable. Will definitely stay here again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the nice review! He was so cute, how can you not spoil a child when you have the opportunity. We are kid friendly here and enjoy watching their amazement at the house and it's décor. It was so nice to have met you as well. Please come back and stay again when you are coming to town.

Christmas House weekend

5 on August 28, 2017

My girlfriend and I were looking for a relaxing weekend at a bed and breakfast. We ended up staying at Christmas House, and it did not disappoint! The hosts were fantastic. Breakfast was amazing. Homemade blueberry muffins that were to die for, fruit, and a fantastic omelet on Saturday morning. Then homemade french toast with bacon and eggs, and they even purchased some pastries from their favorite local bakery! The location was great; about a block away from the lake. The beach is about a half mile walk north with a great walking path the whole way. The downtown area is about a quarter mile north. We received recommendations for dinner options, and Olde Madrid was absolutely amazing - definitely check it out if you stay here!

Innkeeper Response
It was so nice to have met you. We love letting our guests know about all the wonderful places we have in our Downtown Racine. Of course, if you are from out of town we have to have you try Kringle! Thank you for the wonderful words of praise of our bed and breakfast. You must come back to visit us again.

Fantastic Time

5 on June 09, 2017

My daughter and I spent the night at the Racine Christmas House B & B. We enjoyed our time there. We enjoyed hearing all about the history of the Christmas House and it adds to the charm of staying there. It is a wonderfully eclectic, charming and fun place to stay. We enjoyed breakfast in the dining room and it was homemade and amazing! B&B is situated right next to the lake for walks and you must try the Mexican cafe down the street - 9 Juan Juan! It was exceptionally good food!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for coming to stay with us and experience our local cuisine. We are glad you enjoyed yourself and appreciate the nice words about our breakfast and the inn. Please come back to visit us soon.

Making Memories

3.4 on October 14, 2016

Our room was spacious and well appointed. No service was performed on the rooms each day. Meals were tasty, well prepared and presented, but the menu was standard fair and featured very little if any gourmet offerings.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your comments. We normally do not service our rooms each day unless the guest asks. This is to conserve. I am sorry we may have missed the opportunity to assist you better with regards to your room needs. Maybe next time you come to visit we can make breakfast a bit more special for you. Thank you again for your feedback. It helps us to grow as we go.

Most amazing place to stay!!

5 on August 23, 2016

We stayed in the Tranquility room. It is a very beautiful and comfy/cozy room. The owners and everyone there were amazing people. Very helpful and very nice to talk to. The place altogether is a beautiful place to stay. It actually made my husband want to buy a house like it and move there!! Thank you all for everything. It was a nice relaxing vacation!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! We love to help make our guests feel at home. I am happy to hear you had a wonderful relaxing vacation. Please come for another visit soon.

We spent a delightful 5 nights at this lovely Victorian home in the Tranquility Suite. Everything from the linens and towels to space in the room and bathroom, and the charming hosts were all fantastic, top-notch. The rooms have everything you would except in a modern hotel Keurig coffee maker (regular coffee available at breakfast as well), refrigerator, wifi, and bathroom amenities like soaps and lotions from a local provider (great products), and a hairdryer. The breakfasts were something to behold. They provided something for everyone: fresh fruit salad, homemade muffins (it is worth a trip just for the blueberry or cranberry/almond muffins), a special main dish each day such as shirred eggs, French toast, pancakes with the special syrup, quiches, and more. We often skipped lunch since we were so full from breakfast. The bed was extremely comfortable as were the recliners in the room. Downstairs had plenty of space to find a spot both inside and out. The wrap-around porch is excellent to relax on after a day of exploring the area. We were often joined by one or more of the hosts. You can tell they not only love this special house, they love Racine, providing many recommendations for sites to visit as well as restaurant. Everythng about this Bed and Breakfast was excellent. We look forward to returning next year.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the great review. We love to make people happy and enjoy the place we love. Breakfast has always been something we love to eat and so we like to share our love of cooking and baking with our guests. Sharing our wonderful house and city with visitors is a joy. We are glad you had such a good time and welcome you back soon.

a gem in the making

3.8 on December 22, 2015

My husband and I were seeking quaint accommodations for our final night in the Midwest. We came across the Christmas House, but were hesitant due to some mixed reviews. We inquired by phone and the innkeepers graciously answered our questions. Then, they warmly welcomed and allowed us to observe the accommodations. Their efforts gave us confidence and we chose to stay and were rewarded with excellent hospitality and dinner recommendations. Downtown was lovely; all decorated for Christmas, and our food and service at the Italian restaurant was a true finale to our trip. We concluded the evening with an after dinner cocktail with Pamela as we learned the history of the Christmas House. In the morning, Ann and Pamela prepared a spectacular display for breakfast around our schedule and encouraged us to return and offered additional attractions to consider along our final route. As Ann and Pamela openly stated the Christmas House is a working progress. They requested feedback and sincerely desire to make each guest’s stay special. The room ~Our floors were freshly vacuumed and our bathroom very clean! Our only complaint was although the bed linens appeared newly purchased they were stiff and scratchy and we would have preferred white. Additionally, those with allergies should know they have "furry friends" which they offer to put away to if we were not inclined to pets. All in all, my husband and I agreed that if we are able to visit the area again we would love to return to see the progress!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind and helpful words. We appreciate you taking the time out to give us helpful suggestions. Those scratchy sheets are there no longer! Please come back and stay to take in our wonderful Lake Michigan!
