There are also many great photo opportunities with Santa statues throughout Elf park. The cottages are very clean and festive. Also great if you like to grill out. I only wish we...

This place is amazing! We felt so safe and welcome. The owners are super nice. Try to book your stay as much in advance as you can because it's a very popular place. Rates are reasonable and it's beautiful there. The cottages are wonderful and you even get a bucket of food to feed the fish. We were catching fish...

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...

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...

Great staff!!! Wonderful atmosphere and worth every dime. Plenty of things for the kids to do and they even give you a bucket of fish food for the kids to feed the stocked ponds. If they like to fish there are plenty of fish in the stocked ponds.

We rented a cabin here because we did not want to camp and their cabins were less expensive than the Rudolph cabins up the road. I am glad we did! Our cabin was a one bedroom and it fit all six of us easily. We had a bbq grill and a firepit, as well as a full size refridgerator, stove...
