We invite you to create your own special Christmas celebration in our vintage 1850's cabin this holiday season.

After snuggling under comfy patchwork comforters for the night, enjoy a farm-fresh breakfast in the morning.

What was it like to experience Christmas in an Indiana log cabin 160 years ago? Christmas in the Indiana wilderness was celebrated by some early settlers. The head of the pioneer family would read the gospel story of the Nativity, which was followed by the giving of home-made presents, articles that were useful and practical, for there were few frivolities in a cabin in the woods: "Father had tanned a hide in a trough cut out of a trunk of a tree, had taken the leather and made shoes, patterned and pegged by himself, for the boys and girls. Perhaps mother had been able to make some preserves and candy out of last year's maple sugar. They sometimes had wild turkey for dinner. The girls got new linsey-woolsey gowns or sunbonnets. Mother fashioned a doll out of buckskin and stuffed it with hay. The candle-lit Christmas tree was not known then in Indiana. Some little girls were fortunate to get some cabinet maker's little samples or some tiny china pieces. For the boys, homemade sleds, wagons, bows and arrows, slings, and whistles made of paw paw. Or a pair of ice skates or a gun made at the forge of the local blacksmith. For the Christmas goodies, there were home-made candies, -- taffy or 'lasses,' popcorn strings and balls, and fancy cookies." (from the December 27, 2005, Lowell Tribune, page 5).

Here is what to expect:

*String popcorn and decorate the Christmas tree by candlelight and flickering oil lamps.

*Cozy up to a crackling fire in the fireplace.

*Enjoy a plate of homemade Christmas cookies.

*Roast marshmallows in the fireplace and make yummy S'mores.

*Play games or sing songs - create special memories. We'll provide some Christmas Carol booklets.

*Experience a surprise visit by Santa Claus! If you want, Santa will even bring gifts that you provide in advance or we supply from our farm store. Alpaca socks and stuffed toys make great Christmas gifts!

*Settle down for the night in the cabin loft under warm patch-work comforters. The loft sleeps six in two full beds and two twin beds.

*Enjoy a farm fresh breakfast in the morning complete with fresh homemade cinnamon rolls.

Tim and Beth were wonderful hosts! When we arrived, we were welcomed by Tim, who not only showed us around the cabin but welcomed us to take a look around the farm also. After our walk around seeing everything, we came back to having hot chocolate and cookies waiting for us! Tim was quick to let us know that SANTA was going to come to visit and had a present for each of my two girls (6 and 3). After Santa came to visit us, we settled down by the fire with some smores that were provided by our hosts also. The next morning, we woke up to having fresh coffee and hot water for tea waiting for us, and a nice knock on the door with cinnamon rolls, eggs, and sausage for breakfast. After breakfast, we were taken on a tour of the farm and everyone was able to help feed the animals and look for eggs.

We had a wonderful time and would HIGHLY recommend going to this experience as it is something that will be remembered for our family for a long time!

What a magical night! My children thoroughly enjoyed their Christmas Cabin experience. From the hot chocolate, cookies, smores, and yummy breakfast to Santa's visit...everything was exactly as we had hoped. My kiddos ran through the fields, found eggs and fed the alpacas! This is something that we will definitely repeat in the future. Thank you to our wonderful hosts...and Juno the dog!
