Our sleigh ride update!
We are talking to the snowmobile club to move their trail parallel with ours so that our trail rides and sleigh rides will no longer share the same trail on our property. Our last trail improvement is in the works and our plans for a heated waiting area has turned into a full blown coffee shop! Here is some more tentative information about the different rides we’ll offer and pricing.
The 10 Person Sleigh with Big John and Abby
On weekends from 11 to 3 we plan to offer 15 minute sleigh rides on the larger sleigh for walk-ins of any size group and by reservation for groups of 4 or more. These sleigh rides are $15 per adult with a family rate of $45 for a family of four, 2 adults and 2 children under 12. Sleigh rides will leave every 25 minutes starting at 11 with the last ride out at 3 pm. Sleigh rides during the week are by reservation only, $125 for a group of 8 adults or 6 to 8 adults plus 2 to 4 children under 10 ( for a maximum of 10 participants of all ages per 15-20 minute sleigh ride). Remember we will have a great waiting area so feel free to plan for a larger group!
The Couples Sleigh
This sleigh looks just like Santa’s! With Rose, Traveller or one of the team pulling it, you will be cruising the snowy trails in style. We are hoping to offer a Friday night “date night” special for couples. With lights on the sleigh we plan to head out through the trails after dark for a special sleigh ride evening just for adults. With a minimum of 2 reservations we can do these as low as $80 per couple. These sleigh rides will be 15 to 30 minutes which will be determined by snow conditions and weather and the comfort of the participants. We also offer these sleigh rides on regular weekend days from 11 to 3 at a rate of $50 per couple. Any other time of the week is a specialty ride at $125. A great way to celebrate for anniversaries, proposals and other special times in your life.
The Road Apple Cafe for Sleigh Rides
Our new cafe will be warm and cozy while you wait for the sleigh ride to return for you. A wood stove to cuddle near, a huge window to watch for the sleigh ride and hot drinks and pastries to keep you warm during the sleigh ride. A sample menu for this first season includes Keurig coffee, tea and cocoa. Pastries made right here in Casco and other nearby towns, hot stews and chili. Some items will only be available on the weekends. But all hot drinks will be available and the warm spot to wait right through the week for any ride. Bathroom will be a portopotty for all sleigh ride participants so be prepared for a cold seat!
Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve Sleigh Rides
We plan to offer reserved rides only on these days if conditions are right. Keep an eye out for our special deals which will include gifts and food!
