Plan your holiday getaway to a Moonstone Hotel today

Moonstone Hotel Properties is not only known for its charming boutique hotels, but also for its world-class Christmas Markets! While the summer sun shines brightly, it’s never too early to start thinking about the magic of the holiday season. Take a break from your summer festivities and celebrate Christmas in July - the perfect opportunity to start planning your magical visit to the Silverton Christmas Market (Oregon Garden Resort) or Cambria Christmas Market (Cambria Pines Lodge). This winter, we hope you’ll join us to experience our German-inspired winter wonderlands!

Make your way through our famous light tunnels and discover displays whose bright twinkling lights will leave you in awe! Don’t forget to grab a warm hot chocolate for the kids and gluhwein for yourself, and find a spot in the family-friendly Biergarten where you will enjoy nightly live music. Then it’s on to the curated Vendor Market to shop for artisan soaps, handcrafted German nutcrackers, wooden toys, fun light-up balloons and more - the whole family will have a delightful shopping experience and you just might check everyone off your holiday gift list.

After finding the perfect purchases, make your way towards Santa’s House where the kids can deliver their Christmas wish list to the big man himself while you snap an adorable photo. Speaking of photos - are you looking for the perfect holiday family shot for Instagram or your Christmas card? We’ve crafted a number of exciting, immersive photo ops - so snap away and forever remember your visit.
