So great to find accommodations for our family of seven! This family owned and operated business goes above and beyond to make their cottages and property perfect for other families to enjoy! The separate bedrooms in the cabin made it perfect for putting our twin toddlers to bed before the rest of us. We were visiting over fall break for... More

Lovely cute cottages, beautifully done. I found them pricey though, esp because they charge $25 for linens !!! I did not mind the overall experience minus the fact i had to pay that amount for linens. The cottage doesnt provide any basic supplies ! ( no dishwasher soap and you are expected to clean and keep the dishes away)!

Three of us stayed in Holly Tree this past weekend. The cottage was lovely and clean with plenty of room for us. The furniture was well made and sturdy and the beds were comfortable. It had a balcony with a table & chairs overlooking the lake. The property was immaculate and in warmer weather it has plenty to offer families.... More

We rented Vixen's Stable for a getaway weekend with friends. There were 5 of us and we were very comfortable. Our weekend was spent making crafts, so we not only had 5 women's belongings, but we had supplies needed for 3 days of crafting. The cabin was perfect for us. It was by far the cleanest rental property I've ever... More

This was a great place to stay for visiting Holiday World. The accommodations were spacious and very clean. We got some firewood at the local grocery store and made s'mores in the fire pit out back. We would definitely return.

The wife loved the cottages so that's what's important. We stayed a couple nights while visiting Holiday World and really enjoyed it. The cabin was large and had a full kitchen. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There are lakes to fish in, a pool, hammocks and lots of green space. I thought the property could have used a... More

Stayed here as it was approx $100 night cheaper than the nearby RV park our friends recommended. Our family loved it especially our 4.5 yr old daughter! Lots of kids running around to play with. Her first time fishing (poles to rent for $5 per stay, worms $3) and there were lots of fish. Back patio opened up 12 ft... More

We stayed the Wed-Sat before July 4th. A friend told us how nice the place was. She was spot on! In addition, the average rating on trip advisor was 5 stars and I have never seen that before. One negative comment talked about how they do not offer daily room service. This was actually a plus for us. They picked... More

A top notch family owned resort. The cabins are spotless and well stocked with wonderful beds, towels and supplies. The pool, the fishing, the playground, all were just better than we could hope for. Many new memories were made and we definitely look forward to our next Holiday World / Santa's Lakeside Cottages stay !!
