Time for Us to Come Home for Christmas Filming Locations
Five strangers are invited to the Snowfall Inn at Bevington, New York, which is the backdrop of the central plot of the story. Now, if you have tried looking for a Snowfall Inn or Bevington, you will realize that the inn does not exist and that Bevington is an actual city, located in Iowa and not New York. Let us take a look at where the movie was actually filmed!
Langley, British Columbia
‘Time for Us to Come Home for Christmas’ was filmed in the Township of Langley, British Columbia. Langley Township lies in the eastern part of the Metro Vancouver Regional District. When it comes to filming locations, Langley is counted as one of the most preferred locations in all of British Columbia. This is the result of the fact that many productions like to film in the different neighborhoods as well as in the several studios, including Martini Film Studios.
Various big productions contribute to the growth of the local economy, especially since the studios are always booked. Some of the well-known shows filmed in Langley are ‘The 100,’ ‘Riverdale,’ ‘You Me Her,’ and ‘Arrow.’ Aldergrove is one of the communities in the Township of Langley. It is known for the Aldergrove Regional Park and the Greater Vancouver Zoo.
The town is dubbed as one of the most film-friendly municipalities in the area since residents and local business owners are open to the filming experience. The interior scenes for this film were possibly shot at a property in the Aldergrove area. Interestingly, another Hallmark movie, ‘Coming Home for Christmas,’ was also filmed in Aldergrove’s large mansion.
The lighthearted movie was filmed in the fall of 2020, in compliance with the new filming guidelines to ensure the health and safety of the cast and crew members. Like many other Christmas films, a lot of artificial snow was used, which is the critical ingredient that completes a Christmastime picture.
