    Our family has loved coming to see Christmas in the Country for years. I have to say this year we were a little disappointed by the displays in the hotel. We missed the themed and animated displays of past years. We also missed some of the animated light displays such as Santa playing golf, the gingerbread boy jumping over the house, and Santa jumping on his motorcycle. I spoke to the person at the front desk and she said to leave a comment online. So I would like to put in my request for a return of the perhaps more kitschy displays but so much more enjoyable for our family.L

      John, We tried a new approach to our holiday décor based on comments from last year. We appreciate any and all feedback as we make plans for the future. We will use it to help improve the décor for next year.
