Very satisfied with our cottages and the amenities at Santa's cottages. Took ad- vantage of the fishing, grills, firebowl, pool, playground, cornhole game, hammocks, free dvd's, etc. Would definitely stay here again.

We reserved with Santa's Cottages a year in advance after a terrible experience with another organization within the community, this brought true meaning to the statement the best comes to those who wait! We can not say enough wonderful things about this organization; family owned, operated, hard working, goal oriented, and overall made our family feel like we were part... More

We loved our stay! The cottages were spacious with comfy beds & all the things we needed. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We were there for a family reunion along with about 30 others. We were all in agreement that we could not have found a better place. Our little ones loved the fishing (& so did our... More

We rented two cottages (6&7) for two families last weekend. It couldn't have been a better location or experience. The cottages were clean and well maintained. There was a comfortable bed in the bedroom, a murphy bed and futon in the living area...slept our family without issue. The grounds were amazing - lots to do for the kids while we... More

Kitchen is stocked with kitchen supplies that you will need or a few days. It was very clean and the owners are onsite. They were very helpful and kind. The gounds were... More

We were greeted upon our arrival by Clint. Him and his baby daughter showed us the cottage, and all the amenities. We got some free fish food, and rented some poles. We stayed for 2 nights, and unfortunately we had 2 day tickets for Holiday world. I was actually disappointed that we couldn't stay at the cottage instead of going... More

We planned our trip to Santa Claus, IN and Holiday World around the availability of the cabins after I saw the reviews on this site. We couldn't have been happier. The grounds were fantastic, the staff were helpful and friendly. I've never felt so at home on vacation before. Our stay was the start of a new tradition. We'll be... More

Super clean, nice staff, loved the pool. Fishing was fun (pole rental for stay is $5 a pole), fire pit is fun, but you have to buy firewood. I really liked the place but for the cost, they should have just included fishing poles and firewood at no charge. I brought my own linens to avoid the linen fee-pretty steep.... More

Our family stayed in 3 cottages on the lake and had a fantastic time. The cabins were very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, courteous, and very efficient. Everyone in our family, from ages 1 1/2 to 64, enjoyed themselves.
