This was a great place. We want to come back here when the weather is nicer to enjoy more of the grounds. Here are some of the things that made it great: - Even the small cottages sleep 6 full adults with one bedroom, a futon, and a murphy bed. - The views were nice with the lake and the... More

Planned a fun October weekend in Santa Claus, Indiana with my daughters, their husbands and two grandchildren. We had a ball. Santa's Cottages are unbelievable -- so very nice. We stayed in Sleigh Bell -- had plenty of space. The beds are comfortable -- the kitchen was fully equipped and the towels were fabulous. Exceptionally clean! We had wonderful time... More

We went at the end of the season as a getaway when the kids had a 4 day weekend. It was a wonderful place to stay and Matt was extremely friendly and helpful while we were there. We went over Halloween weekend, and Matt even invited our family to his gated community so the kids could trick or treat in... More

I almost didn't post a review. There just anything else to say about how great these cottages are that would not be redundant. My son & I stayed in Dasher, Cottage 6. We absolutely loved it. The Christmas decorations in every room were tasteful and rustic. The mattress on the king size bed in the bedroom was even nicer than... More

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
