Stony Creek Ranch Resort at Christmas Celebrate

The legendary Stony Creek Ranch Resort and the Saratoga & North Creek Railway is proud to introduce “The Train to Christmas Town.” Departing from the resort in Stony Creek, NY, the train will operate from November 17 through December 28, 2017 and promises to be a memorable Christmas experience for families throughout the region.

The Stony Creek Ranch Resort, embedded in the beautiful snowcovered Adirondacks near Lake George, is the region’s premiere Christmas dude ranch. Each room and cabin is decorated in the holiday spirit. Guests can enjoy hay wagon rides around the property and meet Blitzen, the on-site reindeer. They can also visit the petting zoo to hug bunnies, miniature goats and mini-pigs. Adults and kids alike will love the Christmas lights, arts and crafts activities, the assorted booths and delicious food in Jingle Bell Junction.

On-board the train the theatrical event is based on the children’s book, The Train to Christmas Town. The train departs Stony Creek Ranch Resort for a one-hour roundtrip journey to “Christmas Town” during which Santa’s elves will serve delicious hot chocolate and cookies. You’ll also sing along to original holiday music from the Grammy-nominated band, “Trout Fishing in America,” as well as listen to The Train to Christmas Town read aloud. To top off the festivities, each girl and boy on board will receive a visit from Santa himself and a very special holiday gift.

Stony Creek Ranch Resort is a 500-acre dude ranch with 43 horses, an indoor pool and a hot tub. The resort extends along the headwaters of the Hudson River for one-and-a-half miles, and even features a cattle drive in the warmer months. Book a holiday family trip and enjoy the train ride which leaves right from the lodge. Every resort guest is guaranteed a seat on the Train to Christmas Town, three delicious meals a day, entertainment in the bar, our game arcade, plus much, much more.
