Spend the night in A Christmas Story House or The Bumpus House!!!

A Christmas Story House and The Bumpus House are now available year round for fans to spend the night.

A Christmas Story House:

Spend the night reliving your favorite movie and sleeping in Ralphie and Randy’s beds. Overnight guests have use of A Christmas Story House’s private third floor loft for the entirety of their stay and use of the whole house from an hour after closing until 9 am the following day. Please note the we have extended tour hours during the Christmas season. The house can accommodate up to 6 guests per night. The loft area is equipped with a bedroom, living room, full kitchen and full bath. Sleeping arrangements include a queen bed, queen sleeper sofa and Ralphie and Randy’s twin beds. The rate for bookings begins at $395 per night and varies with the season.

The Bumpus House:

The Bumpus House is located just to the left of A Christmas Story House. It is the fictional home to Ralphie’s hillbilly neighbors, the Bumpuses, and their 785 smelly hound dogs. The Bumpus Hounds are famous for harassing Ralphie’s Old Man and stealing the Christmas turkey. The motif for the interior of The Bumpus House is vintage eclectic in a 1940’s style with a slightly hillbilly Bumpus flare while still providing all the modern amenities.

The Bumpus House has two accommodations: The “Hound Dog Haven” suite on the first floor can accommodate up to 4 guests per night and the “Stolen Turkey”suite, which encompasses the second and third floors, can accommodate up to 6 guests per night. Guests can also rent the entire house. A first-floor dual access door allows for the whole house to be rented. Rates start at $195 per night and vary with the season.

The first-floor suite is handicap accessible with ramp access and accessible features inside.


Included with a stay in A Christmas Story House is a free tour for all guest of A Christmas Story House & Museum.  For guests staying in The Bumpus House admission to A Christmas Story House & Museum is available for an additional fee.

Sorry, No Hounds Dogs:

Sorry there are no hound dogs on the property and you cannot bring your own.  They have a bad reputation of stealing the Christmas turkey.  The only animals permitted in either house are service animals for individuals with physical disabilities.
