A Feeling of Home: Cast and Filming Locations

Over time, Hallmark has presented several character conflicts that feel extremely universal with its television movies and television series. ‘A Feeling of Home’ is a television film that wraps a warm romantic story amidst a very relatable central conflict for the protagonist.

In ‘A Feeling of Home,’ the protagonist faces a dilemma that many people in their youth might have gone through: the dilemma of choosing to stay at home or pursuing a life elsewhere.

She has a potential investor who is interested in the popularity of her New England roots. However, Abby is actually from Texas. Unexpected to her, she gets asked to come home to assist her father with their family ranch. However, what is even more surprising for Abby is the fact that her high school boyfriend, Ryan works as the ranch member for her father.

Abby tries to help her father as best as she can but ends up needing Ryan’s help all the time. Over time, old flares start to light up, rekindling Ryan and Abby’s past flame. Now, Abby must decide what to do. She can decide to stay back home, closer to her roots and to Ryan who she has fallen in love with again. Or, she can dump that idea and go to New England and chase a possible professional opportunity.

A Feeling of Home Filming Locations

Many viewers might be wondering where ‘A Feeling of Home’ was filmed. The movie is set in Texas and the setting is quite integral to the plot of the television film. It does revolve around a decision to stay back at home or not after all. So, it is possible that the filmmakers actually filmed ‘A Feeling of Home’ in Texas.


Nope, ‘A Feeling for Home’ has not been actually filmed in Texas, even though it is set there. The movie has been shot in Canada instead. It is nothing new for filmmakers to pass off one location as another. The fact that Canada has a similar aesthetic to most places in the United States has made it an attractive filming spot for many productions in the recent past.

However, the biggest reason which draws producers to the country is a purely financial one: the Canadian government provides lucrative tax credits for filming activities, thereby decreasing filming budgets considerably. ‘A Feeling of Home’ was filmed in Vancouver in the British Columbia region of Canada. The director of the film, Richard Gabai shared several pictures on Instagram from the Vancouver set, proving that fact.
