Ontario is pretty obsessed with Christmas. With all sorts of unique markets, decorations, and holiday fairs, the whole province has no trouble getting in the Yuletide spirit. While we are pretty good at celebrating, no one knows how to celebrate Christmas better than an elf. That's why this holiday season, you should step away from the city bustle and enjoy the festivities in this adorable elf village. Ontario's Stanley's Christmas Village is the most whimsical place to enjoy Christmas cheer this winter.
Stanley's Olde Maple Lane Farm is located in Edwards, Ontario, near Ottawa. Its picturesque scenery makes it a popular destination for weddings, photos, and group events.
The farm features a range of fun events such as seasonal sugar bush tours, a pancake house, an animal barn, and a delicious taffy shack.
During the Christmas season, the enchanting sugar bush is transformed into a festive elf village.
Climb aboard a horse-drawn carriage and get whisked away into a frosty woodland where Christmas magic awaits.
As you journey through the illuminated trail, you'll hear elves singing to welcome you into the little town.
You'll also spot the elve's bunkhouse, where they spend their time when they're not busy making toys.
You must enter the village through a mystical wall that was built to keep the Grinch away from all the Christmas cheer.
The elves will lead you on a twinkling tour of the town, where you'll visit places such as the Wrapping Room, Hermie's Dentist Office, Art's Harness Room, and the Stables.
Indulge in some treats at Cookie's Kitchen, and warm up by the crackling fire.
You can try your hand at wreath-toss by the post office truck and enjoy warm hot chocolate and candy canes in the stone house outside the village.
Tickets are available for purchase online for $13 per person. The village runs from November 30, 2019 - December 22, 2019, and is full of Christmas cheer and photo opportunities.
For those of us in the Toronto area, the Evergreen's Winter Village is another charming place to explore this holiday season.
