A Merry Little Christmas....

Heidi Werner
Director of Catering has been a busy holiday season here at The Carolina Inn and as things start to wind down a little I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you who shared a little of yourself and your family with us over the past few weeks.  Whether you came for tea, breakfast with santa, lunch in the restaurant, or just to meander through the halls and take in the decor....we truly want to extend a heartfelt thank you to you for allowing us to be a part of your Christmas traditions. 
 When people ask me what I love about The Carolina Inn I always say that it is the charm of its nooks and crannies that captivates me.   I think that if you love the Inn like I do you manage to find a little piece of it that feels like yours. 
So.... If you have not made it over to the Inn yet to stroll its hallways and witness its seasonal enchantment we invite you to come by and find your own chair, sofa, or nook that feels as though it is waiting for you every time that you return.

Thank you gingerbread competitors for making our lobby so beautiful this year.  Your creations have never been more stunning!!!!!! 
 Charmain and Melissa...thank you for working tirelessly to bring Christmas to The Carolina Inn!
  It would have never happened without you!  You cleaned the birdcage, sorted through hundreds of questions, and put up with me....I'll let you decide which of those tasks was most daunting...just don't tell me.
