Go Ahead, Steal a Cookie from the Cookie Jar



The Clifton Inn Allows Guests to Celebrate the Holidays with a Cooking Demo, Gingerbread Houses, and a Taste Meant for Ole St. Nick
At the end of the month, children all over the world will head to bed only after placing a plate filled with cookies out in anticipation of the jolly man in a red suit -- but at The Clifton Inn, guests can enjoy a midnight cookie without the hassle of sliding down a chimney.
Midnightraids on the cookie jar at The Clifton Inn are a time honored tradition for guests at the Relais & Châteaux property located in picturesque Charlottesville, Virginia. While guests are nestled all snug in their beds, Clifton understands that occasionally visions of sweet treats may dance in their heads. From traditional classics that evoke childhood memories like Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin, to more sophisticated holiday favorites including White Chocolate Macadamia Nut and Cranberry, Pecan Chocolate Chip, the oversized glass jar perched in the open kitchen is constantly stocked and welcomes late night visits. 
As guests prepare to fill their own kitchens this holiday season, turkey and some mistletoe may make the season bright, but Clifton has wrapped up a festive package sure to dazzle. With Clifton’s Deck the Hallspackage, available from December 17-19, guests can forget about chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and pick up some epicurean pointers at Clifton’s holiday dinner cooking demo with executive chef Tucker Yoder. In addition to the festive demo, the two night package includes a gingerbread house-making workshop with pastry chef Christine Ward, as well as a three-course dinner for two in addition to daily made-to-order breakfast and afternoon tea.
Whether it’s sating a sweet tooth in the wee hours of the morning, creating a gingerbread house reminiscent of the one that grandma used to have, or even just “the sunshine of a friendly gaze,” there’s something about Clifton that just makes guests feel right at home, [even while they roam,] during the holidays.
