What makes Santa’s visit to Corey Lake Orchards different from his other stops? 

  • He brings Mrs. Claus who also engages in conversation with your child, assists with photo taking, and looks great in photos also.
  • He has firsthand knowledge of your children and their holiday wishes (thanks to your help of course!)  This only strengthens the magical mystique.
  • Our tastefully decorated setting is a throwback to yesteryear and simpler times.
  • We have more photo opportunities.  In addition to the immediate area by Santa and Mrs. Claus, we have several photo spots with vintage and farm-type decorations that you won’t find anywhere else.  Areas include our red antique fire truck, antique tractors, horse trough snowman, garland decorated apple bin, large tire wreath, John Deere tractors under the tree, a vintage sleigh, and more unique spots.
  • Our location is quieter (little noise from other shoppers and families), and Santa is quieter (not loud and scary) – a much better setting for children who are already intimidated by the overall Santa experience or have special needs or sensory issues.
  • Family dogs are welcome, too!  Undoubtedly, they will be on their best behavior!

Conversation with Santa – When you make your reservation online, you will be asked information (optional) on your children like names, ages, city of residence, and gift wish list to help guide Santa’s conversation.  And for the little ones who are not sure about these people dressed up in red, they can simply enjoy the space around them where they can sit on an antique toy tractor, find a doll to hug under the Christmas tree, or sit with their parents in the sleigh.

Dress in your warm holiday attire as this is primarily an outside event though we have added some heat by Santa and some photo areas.
