Help us answer the age-old debate: Is it ever too early to decorate for Christmas? For us, the answer is it’s never too early! Bentleyville Tour of Lights starts on Saturday, November 18th so we wanted to welcome our guests coming to see that great holiday display with Christmas decorations of our own.
We started with our main lobby where the aromas of an 11 foot Fraser Fir and hot apple cider welcome you into a cozy seating area with a glowing fireplace, holiday children’s books, Christmas ornament tic tac toe, soft holiday stockings, and as always our two life-size nutcrackers that guard the entrance.
Across from the front desk, a candy cane themed Christmas tree offers complimentary candy canes to children and adults alike. Near the hot apple cider, we have a peppermint themed countdown to Christmas: only 38 more days to go!
Entering the pool area, one cannot help but think… Santa! This tree is decked out with a skirt resembling Santa’s boots, ornaments with his face on them, and a Santa hat at the very top. Our favorite piece of this tree is the garland that looks like Santa’s clothesline. Nearby is our holiday photo booth where you can take a selfie looking like a snowman or Rudolph. For younger children, we have cards and a mailbox for sending Santa their Christmas list. He might even reply back!
For our guests visiting Bentleyville, we have our complimentary shuttle to and from Bayfront park equipped with Christmas music and extra candy canes. The shuttle will be running exclusively for Bentleyville every day of the week including Thanksgiving and Christmas. Be sure to sign up the morning of to reserve your spot.
Also, hot chocolate and coffee are available in our breakfast area 24/7—perfect enjoying an early sunrise over Lake Superior or warming up after Bentleyville.
