If you’re looking for something fun this winter, go on a sleigh ride. Earlier this winter we were looking for a way to get together with family and I stumbled across Bunker Park Stable. We went right before Christmas. Our sleigh ride became a wagon ride due to lack of snow, but it was still a ton of fun! Their wagons/sleighs can accommodate up to 14 people, but they can send out multiple wagons/sleighs if needed. There were Covid-19 restrictions when we were there. Only 3 households and a maximum of 15 people could gather together, so make sure to ask about restrictions before booking. The stable also offers pony, trail rides and bonfires.
Our wagon ride lasted about an hour. Our driver was very informative and kind. The trail we traveled on was beautiful. It felt like we were up north, not in Andover. You may even see deer, we did! After our wagon ride, we reserved a bonfire site. They had the fire lit and ready for us when we returned from our wagon ride. I brought along a coffee urn filled with hot water for hot chocolate, they kept it plugged in for me while we were on the trail. There is a picnic table by the fire pit. We ate cookies and candy canes, but you could easily bring something more substantial.
Due to Covid-19, there are no blankets provided, but you can bring your own. Once the temperatures get above zero, there is plenty of snow for a fantastic time! I highly recommend Bunker Park Stable!!
