Eagle's Nest Night At the North Pole

Last Friday my husband gifted me with a hotel stay at Eagles Nest.  My son, Adam, stayed with us.  It was no ordinary night; it was Night at the North Pole.  For a fair price, guests were able to stay for a night and visit with Christmas characters, do crafts, eat breakfast with Mrs. Claus, watch holiday movies, and much more.

Eagle's Nest has a homey feel and is beautifully decorated.  The floor we stayed on had a car theme.  There was vehicle parts, signs, and décor everywhere.

We were able to spend quality time with some family who also stayed.  My sister, her husband, and son were there.  So was my nephew, his wife, and their three girls.


The craft and activity room had tables set up with different stations for coloring, making ornaments, crafting, and a marshmallow fight.

Olaf made a special appearance and we took the opportunity for photo opps.  Although I didn't wear them, pajamas were encouraged as the clothing choice.

Guests were able to have a supper of pizza, juice, soda and cookies at no additional charge.

Santa told children stories and each child was able to give their wish list.  Santa also told children the story of Jesus birth.

The adults had as much fun as the kids.  Most of the place was adorned with Christmas décor.

Ozzy and Adam took time to swim in the pool.

I've stayed at Eagle's Nest a number of times now and can't rave about it enough.  The staff is extraordinarily friendly and we've come to know them on a first-name basis.  The place is very involved with the community and helps whenever it can.  In fact, the same night there was a very large fire at a hotel turned residential area.  Over fifty people who called the place home were displaced.  Eagle's Nest's manager, Jack, immediately went into action and offered a free weekend stay with pizza - no strings attached. 
I may not be a young'un but I felt transported back to magical childhood days of holiday fun.  I'll definitely be spending the night at the North Pole again next year.

That looks like fun! I would have totally opted to wear the pj's though! Any excuse to wear them as often as possible is a ok in my book!

The evidence is clear - To me it appears your entire family have been blessed with a great time. With the funds within my family being as they are.... We would be lucky to have much of a Christmas. But being since a child I learned the holiday isnt about unwrapping or getting anything for the holiday! Your husband is one I idolize, hope to be similar one day but being I am disabled I probably wont ever be able to afford such a gift. My family has twinkled down year by year since childhood from heart attacks, strokes, Cancer etc but we always make a good time better by helping to make other's have a better holiday! Happy Holidays!
