At Santa’s Cabin, we want to create a visit that is completely different from the Santa photo experience at the Mall. We want your child’s experience with Santa to be new and magical. Our vision is to create a fireside Santa photo visit that is unique, personal, and welcomes you to participate in the photo opportunity.
The Cabin’s location in nature will take you out of the hustle and bustle of the Mall experience and traffic.
We want your experience to include you, your children, your pets, and an exchange of ideas.
Provide Santa with a 'Elf's Report' so that Santa may acknowledge and encourage your child's personal achievements. Submit this on our 'Contact Us' page.
Santa's Cabin is located at:
3509 Teggerdine Road
White Lake, MI 48386
Driving directions are provided under Contact Us .
The idea of Santa’s Cabin came to us following the Christmas season when we would return home to our family cabin in Michigan . Over the past years while working as Santa and managing Santa’s staff at malls in Georgia and Oklahoma, we learned how each child’s experience with Santa is a precious experience.
Upon our return to Michigan, the idea of creating an experience with Santa in a log cabin, by the fireside, in a nature setting began to take shape.
Santa's Cabin is a family owned home (Mike and Lorraine Simonson) and was built in 1942. It is located in the picturesque surrounding of the Pontiac Lake Recreational Area. The Cabin has been in Mike's family since 1952. The logs for the cabin were brought from Canada and ship for assembly. Al and Betty Simonson lived here in the Cabin until their passing in 2004 and 2005.
Mike grew up in the family home and lives here today with his wife Lorraine.
An outing to Santa’s Cabin can be included in your family holiday activity in the Pontiac Lake Recreational Area.
