Fantastic place! Fun skating, sleigh rides are fun. Walking around is so pretty, pit fires to warm up by. It's a fun place.

Ride an authentic horse-drawn sleigh around the grounds, but do NOT miss ice skating on the river! This Victorian village boasts a large, groomed skating area on the river complete with arched bridges, garland, Christmas lights, carillon style music, fire pits and hot chocolate. Skate passes and comfy rentals are a available day and night, as are souvenirs and kettle... More

I don't think my sons will ever forget their first time ice skating here in the winter at night. They kept saying that they felt like they were in a dream...there is a huge man-made pond that features beautiful, little bridges, decked out with twinkling white lights, spanning the ice. There is music box music playing and the horse drawn... More

My husband and I have been visiting Nestlenook Farm for years. Each time we have such a wonderful time. They have the best sleigh rides with the most beautiful horses. We always enjoy ice skating on the pond but we really love just sitting by the roaring fire sipping some hot chocolate and relaxing. This year we went to leave... More

We just drove in and walked around the grounds/frozen pond, but this looks like it would make a terrific 1/2 day ice skating destination. The frozen (and snow cleared) pond winds its way around the farm, passing under several arched bridges, has a warming gazebo in the middle with a hot chocolate station. Looked like fun.

What an amazing time. Like stepping into a Currier and Ives painting. Wide range of prices. I chose the romantic sleigh ride for two with a single horse. Choice of champagne or sparkling cider. Takes about 30 minutes. Snowed the entire time. Heavy blankets draped over you. Our driver was great. took pictures for us. Highly recommended. They also have... More

We went on two rides and both were very nice. The chocolate sleigh ride is only on Saturdays before Christmas and our a must. You have to reserve this ride "early" thur the chamber of commerce

The grounds are magical, all lit up, there is a skating pond and the views are breathtaking. They have these huge draft horses and you go off on the sleigh ride and all you can hear is the bells jingling on the horses, peaceful, very relaxing and enjoyable

Not the place it once was...went ice skating while vacationing up at christmas time. The buildings were in need of repair and paint, the walkways and trails are not being maintained as they were in the past. It lost its magic. The ice rink was bumpy, cracked and was not in good shape to skate on combine that with over... More
