We stayed with several family members while in the area for a wedding. It was very clean, had a pond outside our kitchen window and owners provided food to feed the fish. Owners are exceptionally nice people and truly caring that their customers have what they need and take care of any concerns. It was nice to have room and...

Pleasantly surprised with quality of kids park. From the zip line to the mini cottage to the basketball court, all well kept and maintained. Cottages well built and looked to be deeply cleaned with each stay. Able to access all areas of lake with ease. Not one eyesore.

My first impression of the property was that it was clean, neat, and well kept. The property was so nice that we hired a photographer to do some family pictures there. The check in process was easy. Matt made us feel welcome! My family of 8 (5 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed comfortably in #15 Vixen. We were never at...

We stayed in Comet cabin #9 for two evenings. My family of 5 (all adults) fit comfortably. The cabin was extremely clean and well maintained. It was nice to sit on the outside porch swing by the lake. Unlike other cabins we have rented at other campgrounds, this one had a full size tub and very large bathroom. It was...

This is one place that will meet all of your needs, if you are looking for a place to make memories. Checked in with easy, drove to cabin, opened door and feel in love.

This place is just cool! Nothing fancy but VERY nice, clean, newly updated cabins, and great fun for the family. You are minutes from Holiday World amusement park, and next to a small lake that you can fish. Quaint small town full of shops for Christmas items any time of year and friendly people. Our family of 16 come every...

This was our 2nd visit and we loved it even more then the first time. Will probably make it a yearly event. The people were wonderful and the cabins clean and cozy. Loved sitting out back with a perfect view of the lake. The pool was only a few steps away and the grandkids loved the playground. We enjoyed the...

I can't begin to tell you the amazing time we had on this vacation. This is the second time my family has stayed with Santa's Cottages. Each time the accommodations have been great. The lake is great for early morning and late evening fishing . The pool is great when the day is too hot to do anything else. The...
