A Cozy Christmas Inn: Hallmark Christmas Movie Review

Garland is back! Yes, one of our favorite Christmas Hallmark towns in Alaska has made a resurgence in a new must see Hallmark Christmas movie A Cozy Christmas Inn.

cozy christmas
If the words, "It's Garland, you know" ring familiar from your Hallmark Christmas movie past that you will undoubtedly be delighted the town and its' main characters (including Garland) have returned.

The sequel to Christmas Under Wraps

 Always a Hallmark favorite and in my top ten of Hallmark Christmas movies with Candace Cameron Bure and David O'Donnell is Christmas Under Wraps. Candace plays a city doctor transported without choice to practice in Garland - the Alaska town which is all about Christmas in true Hallmark style.

David O'Donnell returns as Andy to A Cozy Christmas Inn and fills the viewers in with referenced remarks to the first movie. But no worries for new viewers, the references are a veiled wink to the first movie and not needed for anyone to enjoy this fun Hallmark Christmas movie.

Jodie Sweetin ironically replaces Candace Cameron Bure as the love interest for Andy! Andy has traded his plane in for architecture and refurbishing a country inn. Jodie Sweetin arrives representing a possible purchaser and who knew, who could predict, but of course the two have a history.... and off we go for a traditional tried and true Hallmark Christmas movie.

Who Is Back?


Andy's dad (who just happens to heavily resemble Santa)

Hattie and the coffee shop

The theme music, one of the best for Hallmark

Garland town

The "shipping company" and the "elves"

Jeans lined with sweatpant material and the general store

Stars, pilots and airplanes - shoewear, heels, and boots

Mark your viewing calendars for Christmas Under Wraps and A Cozy Christmas Inn this holiday Hallmark season. Both Hallmark movies with A actors, A chemistry and overall grade of Hallmark A!

  1. Well, it sounds like hot chocolate and relaxation time to me! I can hardly wait to carve out an hour or so to enjoy this Christmas movie. Perhaps, I will steal 2 hrs and watch "Christmas Under Wraps" first just so I am in the complete Garland mood. Sounds like a wonderful town, and set of movies!

  2. What fun to have a sequel to Christmas Under Wraps. Always delightful to have favorite characters return.

  3. How delightful that they made a sequel to a favorite Hallmark holiday movie! I haven’t seen Christmas Under Wraps, but it sounds like it and A Cozy Christmas Inn would make a lovely, heartwarming holiday double feature to watch by a crackling fire with mugs of hot chocolate and Christmas cookies.

  4. What a lovely movie this sounds! I can imagine cosying up on a winter evening by the fire, watching this and thoroughly enjoying it. Thank you for your review and recommendation.

  5. With the dusting of snow we have today, this movie sounds just perfect. For some reason this year, I am in the mood for Christmas much earlier than most years. Bring on the movies! Thanks Tracey!

  6. Sounds like an excellent choice for a quiet, relaxing evening.
