The location of the cabins is approximately two miles from the main area of Santa Claus; providing a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Our first night stay (a Saturday) the property was booked but we did not hear any noise from others. The cabin was clean and the furnishings comfortable; Christmas touches added to the atmosphere. We had an issue with the tv, placed a call to Brenda (one of the owners) and when the issue couldn’t be resolved over the phone she was on our doorstep within ten minutes. The problem still couldn’t be fully resolved and the technician generously offered to come out the next day (his day off). When we returned the next day the issue had been resolved. The reindeer express (train) is such a cute addition and made us smile. If you visit make sure to walk the grounds, there’s plenty of little surprises to add to the splendor. Upon returning home my husband has asked when we plan on returning; that means he thoroughly enjoyed Santa’s Cottages. Thank you for your hospitality and making our trip.

This was my first visit to Santa's Cottages and won't be my last! They are located on a beautiful property with walking trails and a playground. Our cottage looked brand new (even though it was built in 2008) and was VERY clean. We had a lovely deck where the pond was visible, a grill, and a fire pit. We grilled, fished, and roasted marshmallows over the fire pit. The staff was more than accommodating with our every need. It was a perfect weekend getaway!

We had a blast at Santas Cottages! I would recommend this for family and friends. So much to do for kids and very relaxing for adults. If you need a get-a-away you must come here. It’s very relaxing! I’m already planning my next stay there!

If you're visiting any attractions in Southern Indiana,especially with kids, Santa's Cottages will not disappoint. Setup for kids. Fishing, train ride, large playground and room to run on this well maintained resort. Great cottages all with campfire area and covered patio. Owners were wonderful. Close to Holiday World amusement park.

My family and I arrived at Santa's Cottages with little knowledge of what to expect. We were blown away by the property, the hospitality, and all of the things to do. The cottage was clean, updated, perfectly decorated with the right amount of Christmas decor, and had everything needed to cook/eat. The property was well maintained with hammocks all around, fire pits, train, arcade, corn hole sets, laundry room, and grills for cooking outside. The fishing was great! The salt water pool had plenty of seating, ample space, and even a splash pad. The playground was one of a kind. There is plenty to do on the property. No need to go to Holiday World. The owners are very hands on and extremely approachable with great communication. They take pride in the property and you can tell by the way they are doing updates every year. We will book again and tell all of our friends about this little gem we found in a tiny town.
