Airbnb offers all kinds of animal experiences for people to try, and now it’s bringing the Christmas spirit with a trip to Santa’s Reindeer Herd.
The farm, which is located in Eatonville in western Washington, is a family-owned company that says they believe in Christmas’ magic. According to the Airbnb listing, the farm is the road to Mt. Rainer National Park, close to Longmore Entrance. It’s committed to teaching the public about the animals there. The farm includes three adult reindeer and two baby ones they’ve named Jingle Bell and Willow.
No, the reindeer do not fly. However, their names are festive but are not named after any Santa’s reindeers.
Visitors can interact with the reindeer in the Real Santa’s Reindeer Encounter Farm Tour at Santa’s Reindeer Company. Along with the tour, guests can walk around the grounds, which includes walking with and feeding the reindeer there. Visitors are permitted to bring cameras and video cameras to remember the magic.
Since western Washington can get cold, guests are treated to a hot beverage such as cocoa or cider while partaking in the activities.
The farm is also home to other animals – chickens, dogs, donkeys, ducks, horses and a rooster.
The cost is $17 per person and can only be booked on the weekends. There are still several December dates available. The farm will also operate in the spring and early summer for those unable to make it during the holiday season.
