An all-new Christmas movie has arrived on Netflix and it looks like it'll be just as big of a hit as A Christmas Prince. In Christmas Inheritance, Ellen Langord (Eliza Taylor) is a young heiress who goes to the small town of Snow Falls to prove to her father she's ready to take over the family business. The quaint town that's, of course, filled with snow, is beautifully charming and has left many people wondering: where is Snow Falls on Christmas Inheritance?
I'm sorry to say that Snow Falls is actually a fictional town, so it's hard to say where exactly it's supposed to be located. To get there, Ellen takes a bus from Port Authority in New York City, so it's probably not too far away from the city itself, though it's unclear how long Ellen's bus trip is and in which direction her bus was traveling. However, in terms of where the movie was actually filmed, the setting for the majority of it was actually in Ontario, and it wasn't even filmed during the winter.
According to Heavy, Christmas Inheritance was filmed in North Bay, Ontario from March 24 to April 8 of this year, with some scenes being filmed at Niagara-on-the-Lake in early March. Specifically, The Grand Victorian bed and breakfast was used for most of the shots at the inn Ellen stays at in the movie. Although the majority of the film was shot in the spring, the setting still had a wintry vibe, and was actually hit by a snowstorm 10 days prior to when shooting began, similar to the snowstorm that strikes in the movie, causing Ellen to be trapped in Snow Falls longer than she anticipated.
In addition, the crew also brought in snow blankets to really give the location a wintry feels, and of course, The Grand Victorian was decorated with Christmas trees and lights to create the perfect holiday atmosphere. From watching the movie, you could never tell it was shot in the spring, but that's just some classic movie magic for you.
People are already raving about the new Netflix special, and some have already watched it more than once. Ellen's story about learning the true spirit of Christmas is nothing new, but still very cute and heartfelt. After hiding her true identity so that she won't be treated differently, Ellen gets to know the people of Snow Falls and realizes there's more to life than just parties and becoming a big-time CEO.
Additionally, although Ellen starts the movie with a fiancé, she does find love in Snow Falls with Jake Collins (Jake Lacy), who works at the inn and of course has no idea who Ellen really is or that she's engaged to someone else. Until her fiancé, Gray Pittman (Michael Xavier), shows up, that is. Thus, there's also a love triangle to keep fans interested.
Overall, Christmas Inheritance has all the necessary materials to make it another hit for Netflix. Now, along with A Christmas Prince, viewers can enjoy a Christmas double feature, that they can watch again and again, even after Christmas comes and goes. So if you haven't watched A Christmas Prince or A Christmas Inheritance yet, now's the perfect time to see what all the hype's about. So grab some hot chocolate or egg nog, get into your coziest pjs, and watch these new holiday classics. Whether they make you genuinely smile or laugh at all the plot holes, there's no doubt you'll love them.
A Christmas Prince and Christmas Inheritance are now streaming on Netflix.
