The Victorian décor takes you back in time to a gentler, more relaxing period in our country’s history while the Executive Chef and his staff delight you with extensive menu offerings. 

Admission to “The Christmas Story” House and Museum

The “A Christmas Story” House, now restored to its movie splendor, is open year round to the public for tours and overnight stays. Directly across the street from the house is the “A Christmas Story” Museum, which features original props, costumes and memorabilia from the film, as well as hundreds of rare behind the scenes photos. Among the props and costumes are the toys from the Higbee’s window, Randy’s snowsuit, the chalkboard from Miss Shields’ classroom and the family car. After reliving A Christmas Story at Ralphie’s house, don’t forget to visit the museum gift shop.
