“Nice place for the family to spend time together.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2011

We will definitely go back. We stayed in the Pine Cottage and it was just as described and the staff was very helpful. My 2 yr old loved Elf Park and my 10 yr old son and 11 yr old niece loved the fishing. We were able to spend quality time together as a family (grandparents included) and enjoy Holiday World which was only 5 minutes away.

Have previously stayed at hotels near Dale In. For a few bucks more we stayed in a private cottage! Kids caught fish faster than i could get them off the hook! Have family nearby and will not be using hotels again. Beautiful grounds with playgrounds for the kids.

We had a family re-uinion here. The owners of the cottages are wonderful. They gave us first class service and the cottages are immaculate and beautiful. It feels more personal than a hotel and it's quiet and relaxing. We had a blast fishing, playing at the playground, having barbecue's and eating on the deck. The cottages are conveniently located to the shops and the lake. They are also very close to a theme/water park. I highly recommend these cottages for a great experience. We will definitely be back.

This was our first stay at Santa's Lakeside Cottages while visiting Holiday World, but won't be our last! We stayed in Spruce Tree #3 and it was beautiful, clean and had all the comforts of home. Our kids, ages 10 and 7 had the best time out on the back porch feeding the fish, naming two pet turtles and seeing snakes. For $5 you can rent fish poles for the duration of your stay, which was great and the kids loved catching fish!

Pat greeted us at check-in and even took us on a tour of the cottage, showing us where everything was. He is a very kind man! He also told us about 4th of July fireworks that you could see right from the grounds - vs. fighting all the Holiday World traffic - that was the best!!

We will be back next year - but will book soon as they do fill up fast!

Stayed at Santa's Cottages while vising Holiday World, what a great place to stay, I highly recommend it. We plan on making the trip an annual get away. The owners take very good care of their guests.

Greeted by the owners themselves, given a tour of our cottage to know where everything was, had a little problem with the WIFI in the cottage, which was almost immediately taken care of, friendly staff, beautiful view, and very well taken care of property. We will definitely be back!

Our group stayed in 16 and 7. Both were perfect for what we needed for our group of 10. The cottages are well thought out and nicely decorated. The beds were great, except for the futons (not very comfortable) The lake is beautiful and full of fish that were biting like crazy. The staff was very friendly and focused on making sure each guest had a great stay. The management worked to get our cabins as close together as possible. We still had a good walk between them but it wasn't bad. We will definitely be back!!! Holiday World is just a few minutes down the road!!

Room Tip: Reserve early, they fill up fast.
