About Trena Jenkins
Bill and Trena are the owners. We have seven (7) girls ranging in age from 30 to 9 years old. Now in our early 50's the purchase of this property has allowed us to create an atmosphere that we enjoyed so much when we raised our children. We have been blessed with great memories, which we hope will now be passed on to all guests that stays with us.
Trena Jenkins purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Trena Jenkins chose Santa Claus
As parents we have found that some of our favorite memories are the trips we have taken with our girls. We know that you as a guest will also be creating great family memories with your stay in Santa Claus, Indiana. Many stores have Christmas names and themes. During the Holiday Season visiting the Post Office is even a treat. Holiday Foods is around the corner for all of your grocery needs. Golfing and fishing available for those that wish to relax in the outdoors.
What makes this Cottage unique
Holiday World is across the street. It's always fun to listen to the laughter as the famous Raven Roller Coaster swishes by. Five miles down the road is the Lincoln Boyhood National Park…where you can create more family memories and learn our 16th Presidents' childhood history. Lincoln Boyhood preserves the place where he learned to laugh with his father, cried over the death of his mother, read the books that opened his mind. Antiques: If you like to shop for antiques, there are plenty of stores in the surrounding small towns within 20 minutes from the cottage. The St. Meinrad Archabbey is also a 20 minute drive and offers daily tours.

Fall break with family.
The house was good. I didn't really care for the total open concept of beds/living room together and 1 bathroom for a large number of people. The kitchen was great, nice big table and washer/dryer available. The price was good for such a large number of people to stay together, and the owner is very responsive to any communication. TV and internet reception were poor during our stay. But, keeps family members interacting with each other and not their phones!
It was fine for our two families. Plenty of room but nothing fancy. Would of been nice if it had two bathroom. Location is great!! Overall a great experience.
We enjoyed our stay here recently. The layout of this house worked great for us as we had a couple that had to leave early in the morning to go to work so they had the separate bedroom that was away from all our noise. It had its own private entrance as well. We enjoyed all the Christmas decorations and the spaciousness. The kitchen area was great, loved the big table! The beds were not too comfortable but we were only staying the one nite. Loved the location, we were at Holiday World and the GingerBread House is located right across the street. The coded key entry worked very nicely, so handy as we arrived at different times.There was a very nice book inside that had pages n pages of area attractions and info. The towels were very nice and plenty of linens, blankets, etc, unfortunately when we visited the hot water heater was not working (I reported this and they are checking it, must have flipped a breaker). The entire house was very clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay! We ate at Wendy's in Dale as we didn't want to have food in the car all day while we were at Holiday World and Holiday foods which is nearby as closed at 9 when Holiday World did. We did fix breakfast here and enjoyed the wafflemaker.Everytime I contacted the owner, she always responded very promptly and was very knowledgable and helpful. We wanted to stay in a house or cabin during our visit since we had small children with us and didn't want them to be too loud at a motel, this worked great, they could run and be loud and it was not a problem.
Santa's Candy Castle is a fun place to take the family. They serve frozen hot chocolate and have the biggest variety of flavored candy canes!
Santa's Stables offers horseback riding!
Santa Claus Christmas Store is a magical place to shop.
There are antique shops in nearby towns about 15 minutes away.
Relax under the stars and watch two current movies at the Reo Drive-in which is a 20 minute drive from our cottages.
Lincoln State Park and Lincoln Boyhood Memorial are 5 miles down the road. This is a full park, which offers, paddle boats, swimming, fishing, hiking and many more family fun activities. This State Park also has a museum that feature the history of Abe Lincoln.
