We reviewed other places to stay in the area and decided on Santa's cottages largely based on reviews from trip advisor. When we drove onto the property we understood why it received such good reviews. The grounds were well maintained. When we checked in the owners were very friendly and took the time to answer our questions regarding attractions and restaurants in the area. The owner took us over to our cottage to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The cottage itself was absolutely charming and decorated in a Christmas theme which we loved. Our children used a Murphy bed and a futon and both were very comfortable. The furniture all appeared to be of high quality. The cottage itself was extremely clean. We purchased the linen package and it was well worth it. Our children had a lot of fun playing in the park or in the pool. They loved doing the catch and release fishing and the cost was very reasonable. While we were in the area we visited a lot of other attractions but I have to say that some of our best memories will be from the times we spent at Santa's cottages. If we ever return to this area we would definitely stay here again.

Rented two cottages for our family of 10 (4 grand kids). We had a fabulous time. The weather was very hot but we still had fun fishing, cooking out, riding the train and watching the kids have fun together. The cottages are immaculate with everything you need to cook. The air was perfect keeping us cool despite the 100 degree heat index. We opted for the linen package and glad we did, arrived to made beds. The owners are great people and keep the grills, fire pits and overall grounds in great shape. Only issue and one to be expected close to lakes is that you will have to kill a few flys that sneak into the cottage when you open and close the sliding doors. Not really an issue for us but worth mentioning. We highly recommend staying here when in Santa Claus. We will be back.

I recently brought my 2 daughters and 5 grandkids to stay and we loved it! The service from everyone was wonderful. They are extremely kind and helpful. The cabin was beautiful and very clean. The kids loved fishing in the lake, and the train ride through the village and around the lakes. The wood we purchased for the campfire was delivered and waiting for us when we arrived. I highly recommend bringing your family to stay. We will definitely return for another visit!

We stayed in a 2BR/2BA cottage with linens included. It was absolutely wonderful! The cottage had everything we needed. The office carries supplies for purchase if you forget something. The pool, the lake and the playground were awesome! We will be back next year!

We had a wonderful stay at Santa’s Lakeside Cottage over the 4th of July with extended family. The cottages are very clean and well appointed. We loved all of the activities...fishing, roasting marshmallows over a campfire outside of our cabin, playing in the beautiful pool, enjoying the playground and zip line, and of course the kids loved the train ride. The hosts were so helpful and kind. We will definitely be back!
