This was our second stay at Santa's Cottages. The cottages are extremely well-maintained and clean; they also are a perfect spot for families with stocked fish ponds, great playgrounds, and a pool. Each cabin has a kitchen and grill so you easily can prepare basic meals. The pool is a little small and better for younger kids. Holiday World is a short drive away. Just a really nice place to spend a couple of days.
This was our third stay at Santa's Cottages and just like the first and second visits we were impressed with the grounds, the pool area and our cottage. Santa's Cottage employees including the owers are the most accommodating my wife and I have experianced in the last 10 years of vacationing in southern Indiana.
LOVE this place! First time staying and definitely won't be the last! From the full kitchen to playing in the park to fishing in the backyard pond! We didn't have poles so we renting some for a very reasonable price at the front office area - they also had bait. They had firewood for sale (also very reasonably priced) for the firepit in the back. Such a relaxing stay! We rode the train in the morning which everyone enjoyed. Well taken care of property. Elf Park playground was fantastic! My older children loved it and there was a smaller playground for younger kids. There's also a very large pavilion for families to gather for a meal while the kids play on the playground. There was a small arcade as well as a place to do laundry next to the pool. Absolutely recommend this for families!…
Santa’s Cottages is a wonderful resort. Very family friendly, great playground, pool and fun fishing to introduce kids to fishing. Very clean cabins and comfortable beds. The owners take great care of the property. Terri S., St. Louis, MO
Best place to stay they are so friendly and treat you like family and very very clean and you can rent fishing poles and get bait right there and you can bring your own groceries and cook they have all the dishes and everything I love to stay there and hate to leave can’t wait to go back in October and visit again. And I would Recommend this place to everyone I know and I give it a 100 million it’s the best .
This was our 2nd visit to Santa’s Cottages and was even more amazing than the 1st visit! Our family of 15 fit perfect in the 3 cottages we were given! We were on water, with fire pits, covered decks and front porch rockers. We swam, fished (a lot), played basketball, played at the playgrounds and ended our trip with a ride around the grounds in a train! The owners were amazing! They are not only extremely helpful, but very personable! We loved everything about our trip!
We absolutely loved our stay at Santa’s Cottages and would highly recommend it! If you’re planning a trip to Holiday World/Splashing Safari this is the place you want to come back to at the end of the day! We had 4 adults and 4 kids in our 10 person cottage and it was extremely comfortable. The kids loved the pool and the playground with the zip line! The train ride was a nice touch to hear the history and the grandkids enjoyed it! The patio was large and the swing was used daily. The kids liked fishing in the lake and enjoyed cooking marshmallows over the fire and making s’mores. We would definately stay here again! I would rate it 10 out of 10!
My family and I stayed at Santa's Cottages for a summer family vacation. The cottage was super clean, so beautiful, unique and convenient. These cottages have all you could want on a family vacation. They have a kitchen, space for 6 people to sleep, a pool, ponds to fish and feed fish, playground and more. The best part was how helpful and kind the staff are. They do all they can to help make the experience a great one! All staff were excellent and we can't wait to go back again.
Spent the weekend with family at Santa’s Cottages. It was clean and well maintained. Beds were great and cabins well equipped - perfect for a weekend getaway. Super family friendly. Kids had a great time fishing, playing basketball, trick or treating, and running around the playground. Highly recommended and look forward to going back.
We enjoyed everything. The fishing . the cabins and the train ride. A great place to go. Our family has stayed here four times. I'm sure we will be back. It is very relaxing and close to Holiday World and Lincoln park
