Christmas House Tour Information

Scroll down for info about visiting The Christmas House.

Our business is rather unique, because The Christmas House and Santa's Texas Workshop are not located in the midst of a bustling town but are on our ranch 2 1/2 miles off Highway 281 in the midst of the cactus and mesquite brush country of South Texas between Falfurrias and Premont.  It is not in a remote spot but is just enough off the beaten track to be a secluded, peaceful setting where visitors come to enjoy Christmas for 7 or 8 months each year.

The Christmas House, which is our one story ranch home, is open exclusively to groups that have made reservations. We will entertain you and take you on an imaginative journey to all the rooms in our home which are decorated according to themes.  The themes and the decorations are changed each year to make return trips enjoyable.  Our guests who tour the house will tell you that you must experience it to truly understand it.

Plan to spend at least two and a half to three hours here with us as you take the guided tour of the house (it is all inside and seating is available).  Shopping in the store afterwards is additional.
