DINE’s unique Christmas carol mix

Grafton Inn Vermont fireplaceAs we careen toward the holidays, the innkeepers at Distinctive Inns of New England find themselves humming Christmas carols as they go about the day.  However, we often hear a unique set of lyrics coming from the 10 DINE inns, offering an innkeepers’ take on holiday tunes.  We wanted to share our anthology of holiday songs, song DINE-style.  Feel free to sing along as you read this.

Dashing through the Inn

Over the highway and through the woods

to DINE country we go.

The car knows the way, and will go when you say

to our favorite Distinctive Inns any day!

Over the roads and through the tolls

The car winds and rolls

To get to the inn where we can finally grin

And relax our cares away!

Jingle Horn

Jingle horn, jingle horn, jingle all the wayYoda at Chesterfield Inn

Oh what fun it is to ride to a DINE inn for a stay.

Jingle wheels, jingle wheels, jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to ride to a DINE inn every day!

Joy to the DINE world

Joy to the DINE world, your getaway has come

Let innkeepers check you inn

Let every housekeeper and staff

Prepare your room

And breakfast we will serve

And fires we will light

And finally, oh finally you get to relax!

Christmas tree at Grafton InnDeck the DINE Halls

Deck the halls with pine and berries

Fa la la la la la la la la

All DINE guests are welcome, tall, bald or hairy

Fa la la la la la la la la

Don we now our aprons and masks

Fa la la la la la la la la la

Innkepers smile and stick to their tasks

Fa la la la la la la la la!

We’ve taken quite a bit of license here with our own version of well-loved Christmas carols.  We tend to think you’ll stick with the traditional ones, but wanted to offer our own take on these time loved tunes.

Most of all each of the innkeeper members of Distinctive Inns of New England sends a heartfelt and warm wish for a peaceful, safe and bright holiday season for all.
