Creating Holiday Memories at Tenaya Lodge

We visited as a guest of the venue

Visiting Santa at Tenaya Lodge

Tenaya Lodge is the perfect place for your family to relax, reconnect and get into the holiday spirit. The first night that we arrived at Tenaya, we enjoyed an intimate wine tasting in the lobby with exquisite wines from Idle Hour Winery and then we had a festive Mix and Mingle dinner with Kris Kringle.

The minute that we stepped foot into the room, we were transported into a magical world filled with the Christmas spirit. There was live music playing, a large variety of culinary options and Kris Kringle himself. We savored the culinary creations made by the chefs at Tenaya while listening to the beautiful music. Once my daughter was done enjoying her dinner, she sat on Santa’s lap and told him everything on her Christmas wish list.

Once our dinner was complete and we were getting ready to return to our room for the evening, two of Santa’s elves entered the room to unveil another room waiting for us to participate in a Gingerbread House Workshop.

Decorating gingerbread Houses

I spent the night creating some of the best holiday memories with my daughter while decorating our gingerbread house. There was lots of laughter as we used our imagination to create one of the most colorful houses we have ever decorated. It was a night that will live forever in my heart as one of my favorite Christmas memories.
