Snowy Sanctuaries That Will Stimulate All 5 Senses

Take your 5 senses on a winter adventure through these unique snowy sanctuaries!


Book at sleighride at Mockingbird Hill Farm and listen to the clinking of the heel chains, and runners on the snow while you star gaze and enjoy the still of an evening in the forest, it's simply enchanting!

A Canoodling Couple can enjoy a romantic ride for two. You will be nested comfortably in a mound of dry hay as the sleigh ride meanders past historic buildings and into the serene and silent forests of the Farm.

All rides are booked on the hour and are $170, taxes included.
