Every night … Santa welcomes children to his cabin nightly through December 23. Just walk down a sparkling path to an historic log cabin that’s decorated in lights and festooned with greenery. Everything about the log home is authentic — from the large beams overhead to the old limestone fireplace. A fire burns each night in a large hearth near Santa’s chair, greenery is draped across the mantle, and a holiday tree sits in the corner.The cabin offers an inviting, non-commercial alternative for visiting Santa.
