Well, happy holidays GoMomGo readers!
What are some of your December must-do's in Lane County?
My troupe always heads to the "Snowfall" at 5th Street Market and sees the Hosanna Holiday Adventures production of Narnia. Mingled in with some cookie exchanges, caroling, Advent traditions, and more, Oregon is a quintessential place to spend the holidays.
And this year we were invited to start a new tradition in Cottage Grove!
The Village Green Resort is a hotel and meeting venue just 25 miles south of Eugene. They host public events throughout the year and are a popular choice for wedding and corporate events.
But at Christmas time, they take it up a notch!
A 14-acre garden adorned with over 300,000 lights.
Take your own photos with Santa with a very minimal (if any) line.
Ambience complete with strolling carolers, fire pits, and holiday music.
German food to comfort and gluhwein, cocoa, or cider to sip.
I really appreciated the special touches throughout the resort.
If the cold became too much to bare at any point, the Village Green offers a Family Loft within the hotel to play games, write letters to Santa, and sip on a hot beverage.
And be sure to check out the artisan market with local vendors!
My favorite things were exploring the tunnel of lights with my family...
...and taking in the talented choir! Here they are inside the Village Green lobby.
The best deal is to make a night of it and purchase one of their overnight packages which includes event tickets for all, food and beverage, keepsake mugs, and breakfast. Starts at $84. The hotel features a restaurant and lounge too!
