Located in New York’s Adirondacks, this Christmas-resort is situated right in Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole. Families can enjoy the Yuletide holiday all year long at the North Pole. The rustic guestrooms or camping sites give families plenty of cozy accommodation opportunities. There is an outdoor pool for swimming and hiking is available as well. Guests will find a refrigerator, microwave and fireplace inside some of the guestrooms and a kitchenette can be found in some as well. The Whiteface Mountain Ski Center is also a short drive away from the North Pole too. Pets are permitted and there is Wi-Fi in order to stay connected.

We booked their Giant cottage the week of September 17th to 20th. We were traveling by motorcycle and were quite disappointed when checking in that this giant cottage is just a name on the building which is squeezed in with several other cottages, these are no more than glorified travel trailers with very little hot water capacity and of course no heat yet as they must still be celebrating summer season and we were told NOT to touch the heat controls and make sure you don’t spend much time in the shower as the hot water capacity is low, in other words, if you like cold showers, this is the place for you!! My suggestion to the owners is that you might want to include that in the booking section of your website so that there might be less surprises. I returned their key after only being there 25 minutes and stayed in town at the Crown Plaza for only $ 32.00 dollars more for the same amount of time of stay and the hot water was more than plentiful and the heat worked!!!! Again, I guess more research on my part would be something they would tell me but accurate information on their website would’ve certainly saved a review like this. Very,Very disappointed and borderline pissed off with the lack of information until you’re standing at the counter and then of course, your money has been taken.
We stayed here for two nights. Clean clean clean. Well cared for campground. We stayed in the Gothic cabin, and it had everything we needed. The bathrooms are spotless and the showers are clean and warm. Little store has anything you could need, and more you don't need but want. Haven't explored all the grounds yet, but would come again.
