Get in the Christ­mas Spir­it with a

Small-Town Hol­i­day Get­away

The Christ­mas sea­son is one of the busiest times of the year, that is why a small-town hol­i­day get­away is per­fect for step­ping back and embrac­ing the mag­ic of the sea­son! If you’re look­ing for a cozy, Christ­mas get­away our region has so much to offer! We have some­thing for every­one to do and the only thing warmer than our hot cocoa are the smiles of the peo­ple from these small towns.


Begin your trip on Fri­day by check­ing into your ide­al lodg­ing whether it be a cot­tage, camp­ground, or hotel in Big Stone Gap. You can find the var­i­ous lodg­ing loca­tions at . Once you get set­tled in head over to the Green­belt in lights to start your Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties! The next morn­ing stop by the fes­ti­val of trees locat­ed in the South­west Vir­ginia Muse­um! Eighty-one trees will all be dec­o­rat­ed dif­fer­ent­ly by busi­ness­es, schools, church­es, civic groups, and indi­vid­u­als! Enjoy a home­cooked lunch at the Four Sea­sons before tak­ing the next step in your small-town hol­i­day get­away!


Once you com­plete your day in his­toric Big Stone Gap, enjoy your dri­ve past the snow-capped moun­tains just down the road to Wise. You can book a warm and cozy room at the Inn at Wise. Cud­dle up by the tree or explore the his­tor­i­cal inn to see all the oth­er beau­ti­ful dec­o­ra­tions through­out. 


Enjoy din­ner at the inn or dri­ve a few min­utes down the road to the Wood­booger Grill! After you enjoy din­ner with our local leg­end, hop across the road to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa or a freshy baked cup­cake from the bake-a-deli! Once you are fin­ished with din­ner and dessert what bet­ter way to end your cozy Christ­mas get­away than dri­ving through some Christ­mas lights! Camp Bethel Min­istries, locat­ed not far from the Inn at Wise, has a gor­geous dis­play of Christ­mas lights for you to end your night with.
