One (or two) horse open sleigh rides coming again at Ma & Pa’s
What better way to create memories during the holiday season than to take the family on a good old fashioned sleigh ride! Gather up the kids and head off to Ma & Pa’s for a beautiful snow-filled trek through the back woods with just you and your loved ones. All rides are private, allowing you take in the full wonder of your surroundings as you dash through the snow singing, “O’er the field we go, laughing all the way!” Tune out the fast paced techie world for just a little while and enter the crisp winter world of birds and wildlife as your horse and driver take you over some of Geauga County’s most beautiful wooded back country. “We also offer romantic night rides for those special engagements or an unforgettable night out,” shares Ma, who is looking forward to some real snow this winter!
When your nose is nipped and your toes start to tingle, you’ll be brought to the door of the 1820s log cabin where homemade hot chocolate, maple coffee, real baked goods – all made by Ma herself – and a warm fire await you. You’ll also find yourself surrounded by many handmade rustic and unique American made crafts and goodies in this charming setting…the perfect place to find a gift for that hard-to-buy-for family member or friend.
If you’ve come prepared, after you have warmed up, you can wander back outside among the trees – Christmas trees, that is! Ma and Pa’s have a very nice selection of pre-cut, Ohio grown Frasier Firs, “…one of the best smelling, needle retention trees grown here in Ohio,” boasts Ma. They will help you load and wrap your tree at no charge. “We also offer balled live trees for those of you that would like a tree to plant later, says Ma.
Sleigh Rides run from December 1 through mid March on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and some weekdays. Reservations are required, so please call ahead. There is a carriage should there be no snow. You can sign-up for their snow alert on their website and they will email you every time they go out.
