Though the Beach Boys crooned “Christmas Comes This Time Each Year,” this season will be one like no other. From Elf Tuck-Ins to live carolers to Santa sightings, we have every reason for you to join us this Christmas holiday.
The festivities kick off on Friday as families gather at our Ornament Decorating Party for an hour of creative fun. Friday also brings our 16th annual Reindog Parade so be sure to dress your pups in their Christmas best! Later that evening there is a chance to win at our famed Bingo.
Saturday arrives with a Half-Day Continental Pheasant Shoot and a morning of high-flying live bird action at Broadfield. Bake sweet treats at Cookie Cutters then hop on the Jeep Train for Rainbow Island Supper featuring music from Marshgrass.
As a family, assemble your “sweetest” gingerbread house on Sunday and, later that evening, take a culinary trip to Italy during our “Feast of Seven Fishes” dinner in The Cloister Wine Cellar. On Christmas Eve, grab your antlers and sleigh bells for our Reindeer Dash Family Fun Run. The annual Children’s Christmas Party begins at 10 a.m. where the biggest wonder of the day will be Santa’s gift. Gather as a family for our Christmas Eve Buffet in The Cloister Ballroom then attend our Annual Yule Log Ceremony. This event is one you won’t soon forget.
And before you know it, Christmas has arrived! Special brunches and dinners are on tap for the day along with a white Christmas at our Snow Day at Retreat. Take it easy on the 26th and enjoy seasonal programming during the day followed by an Oceanside Seafood Buffet and Bingo in the evening.
