I've always wanted the experience of cutting down our own Christmas tree, so we finally got the
chance with the Snowy Owl Christmas Tree Weekend package. It was very reasonably priced
and the surrounding amenities (convenient store, shops, sports pub, ice sculpture display, etc. were all within walking distance) Our kids had a fun time in the pool and hot-tub ( which wasn't really hot, though), but we seemed to have picked the coldest weekend of the year to go and I guess everything was struggling to stay warm! Our room was small and could definitely use an update, but we expected that so it wasn't really a problem....as long as it was clean! The continental breakfast was fine but longer hours would've been nicer..(we were on vacation after all and who wants to get up early?) Our kids like to bring their own "special blankets" with them everywhere we go, and boy were we glad as the room couldn't get warm enough and we needed them at night to sleep! Getting the tree was fun, but it was 3* F outside, so we cut our time a little short picking it out (did I mention it was FREEZING?) The best part was that it finally SNOWED and that seemed to get everyone involved into the Christmas spirit! All in all it was a fun trip! I would only go back again if the price was right and maybe upgrade to a better room!
