Book early as these will be in high demand. The best family accommodation in the area. Immaculate cottages inside and out, all very well maintained. They even visit every morning to clean out the outdoor charcoal grills. Recommend opting for linens, they were clean and hotel quality. Beds were comfy, though the blinds let in a lot of morning light.... More

We stayed at the cottages for 2 nights when we went to Holiday World. Location is great in relation to the park. It was so much better than 3 families being in different hotel rooms or camping. We had one set of grandparents in the master bedroom, a family of 5 in the bedroom with 2 queen beds and a... More

My family and I just spent three days at Santa's Cottages for the first time. I decided this would be a great fit after reading all the reviews provided. We are already looking forward to our visit next summer! We were completely blown away the moment we walked through the front door of our cabin. It was extremely cozy and... More

We stayed in 21A and it was perfect! The owner comes out to your cabin at check in to ensure everything is okay. The ponds have a ton of fish & my daughter loved feeding them with the food and bucket the owner provided us. Great cabin with a/c, we could spend a week on their grounds: 2 playground areas,...

We go every year to the cottages. Our kids love it. Fishing, swimming, playground it has everything. We normally stay in 9A but this yr we thought we would splurge and stayed in 14. The cabin needs some upkeep compared to 9A. The walls were dirty and marked up in the bedrooms, there were cob webs and multiple spiders hanging... More

Fifteen of us shared two cottages. Nine kids from three years old to sixteen and six adults, several in their sixties. We all had fun even after a long day at nearby Holiday World and Splashin' Safari. Well appointed. Nicely decorated to the tiniest detail. Beautiful grounds. The owners do an excellent job of anticipating and fulfilling guests' needs. Possibly... More

Nice, clean family run place. The kids enjoyed getting to feed the fish off our back deck with the complimentary fish food. I enjoyed the quiet secluded atmosphere. The pool and playground looked really nice but we just didn't have the time to try them.

Just returned home yesterday from a lovely 4 day trip to the Santa Claus area that included 2 nights at Santa's Lakeside Cottages. I have nothing but good things to say about the property, our cabin and the nice people who run this resort. From easy check-in with a personal walk through of our cabin to the free movies the...

Booked 4 cottages for our family get together with our 3 children and their families which includes 14 grandchildren for us. It was definitely the best experience for all. The setting was just great; and who knew all the little ones would love to fish. Only bad thing was we only were there for 2 days where we went to... More

Stayed here after 2 days at Holiday World in cottage #17 - Jingle Bell. We had a great experience here and are so glad we had a day to just relax on the property and unwind after the amusement park. The owners are top notch and went out of the way when the wifi in our cottage wasn't working to... More
