My family stayed in Dasher. The cottage was immaculate. The owners really cared that our stay was the best it could be. The owner's came by on their golf carts at night and told us that the office/store was closing and asked if there was anything we needed. The one guy even let us borrow his mustard because we forgot... More

First time staying at the cottages and cannot say enough good things about it. Very close to Holiday World...perfect place to unwind from all of the parks activities. We stayed in #1 which worked perfectly for our family of 4 (many more then that would be a little cramped). Our kids (4 and 2 yo) loved that we could walk... More

We really enjoyed our stay. We spent two nights in August. It was me, my 9 year old daughter and 24 year old niece. We felt very safe and comfortable the whole time. We got the linen package which is a great deal for $25. We were in Cabin #7 and loved the small Christmas tree with lights on in... More

Great property! The cottage was very clean and had everything you could ever need for your stay. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The pond was so close our neighbors were fishing from their back patio! More fun then holiday world!

We love Santa's cottages. We've stayed here for our last two trips to Holiday World and we've already booked again for next year. The rooms are clean and we'll appointed. The staff is friendly and responsive. Fishing in the lake is great for the little ones, there is a pool, basketball hoops, and a playhouse. Maybe next year we'll skip... More

I picked this place based on the trip advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. The cottages seem new and are very clean. We added the linens package and it was well worth it. It's a little cramped for four adults and a child, but for two nights it was fine. The bed was super cozy and I was told... More

My family and I spent two days at Santa's Cottage with another family while we were attending Holiday World Amusement Park. The Cottage was right across from the pool. It was very spacious and clean. We took the master bedroom because we had a baby-- which was very nice with our own bathroom. The guest room was spacious with two... More

We had such a wonderful time at the cottages: the fishing in the pond, playn in the play house, exploring the playground, roasting marshmellows and making smores, and bbqing on the grill was all so wonderful. We made such amazing memories with our little boy who is 4 years old. The futons in the room were great for the kids... More
