Santa's Lakeside Cottages were clean, comfortable, and fun! The kids enjoyed feeding the fish in the stocked pond. A huge turtle lives under the deck. Mom enjoyed the cottage more than Holiday World. Excellent service, amenities, and location.

This place is an amazing place. We had five adults and a two year old. We stayed in Frosty Cabin (#23). The cabin was extremely well kept, clean and had anything you could want. The innkeepers checked on us almost daily to see if there was anything they could help with. They even came around each morning to empty the... More

It is very hard to find a place to stay for a family of 7. I am always excited when I find a great one! The other reviewers are not lying. This place is well worth the money. The cabin was neat and well tended. We had a campfire every night and went fishing every morning. The kids enjoyed the... More
