Perfect for Romantic Couples and Small Families
Imagine just you and your sweetheart, snuggled up close and cuddly under the blankets as the horses bring you for a leisurely and romantic sleigh ride on the Charmingfare trails. As the sleigh is smaller, it is able to head off on the farm’s secondary trails too and that’s where you are more likely to see native turkeys, foxes, coyotes and deer. Oh my! Perhaps you even steal a kiss as you travel deeper in the woods!
The Vis-A-vis sleigh doesn’t have to be totally about romance, though we find evenings are more popular for adults. But its a fun family experience too, especially during the day so the kids can see the animals! (Just make sure to leave those cell phones in your pocket so you and the kids can bond!)
We do provide a sleigh robe to cover up during your ride. Additionally, we suggest you bring a blanket in really cold weather to assure you stay toasty warm. Bring refreshments on your ride too. They do best in a travel mug.
About the Vis-A-Vis Sleigh
Vis-A-Vis means “face to face”, and with the two seats facing each other this sleigh is appropriately named! Carrying up to four passengers, the vis-a-vis sleighs are a re-creation of an 18th century style sleigh complete with antique lamps, cloth seats and the overall ambiance of an 18th century sleigh.
Sled Runners or Wheels?
The condition of our trails determines whether or not we use sled runners or wheels. In order to operate the smaller sleigh we need a 6 inch base of packed snow. Appropriate wheeled vehicles will be substituted if there is insufficient snow for the sleighs to travel on the trails.
Sleigh Ride Tip
Dress appropriate for outdoor weather. Hats, scarves, mittens, boots and a warm coat are important. Consider bringing along a blanket. We find sleeping bags work great.
