Listen to the sleigh bells ring while a team of Percheron pulls you on a party sleigh across forty beautiful wooded acres. Just the sleigh ride is worth the visit...but add thousands of Christmas lights to an evening sleigh ride and it'll be a night to remember!

You’re singing the song right now, aren’t you? It’s a heartwarming ditty that never gets old. The imagery of being “snuggled up together like two birds of a feather” is sweet, admit it. And what’s not to love about a winter scene that reminds you of a “picture print by Currier and Ives.” If you’re yearning for a sleigh ride, then a winter getaway to Token Creek Eco-Inn, the Parsonage, Franklin Victorian, or Stagecoach Inn should be on your 2013 winter to-do list. And that line that goes “There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy, when they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie”…well, you’ll get that at these inns too.[caption id="attachment_996" align="aligncenter" width="143"] Madison-area inns Token Creek Eco-Inn (DeForest) and The Parsonage (McFarland) recommend Rocking Acres for winter sleigh rides and warm season carriage rides to horse riding lessons. Cornerstone Carriages offers tours of downtown Madison and custom private tours at a location of your choosing.
Jean at Token Creek adds: "Hot chocolate and a warm fire are here to greet you after your ride too!"[/caption] [caption id="attachment_995" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Horse drawn sleigh rides through the scenic countryside on a group or private tour can be arranged for guests at the Franklin Victorian in Sparta, with the Red Ridge Ranch.
