For those looking for a unique fun-filled Christmas family activity, Chautauqua-Wawasee plans to celebrate an Old Fashioned Christmas at Oakwood Resort in Syracuse November 30, from 6:00 to 8:00. The celebration is open to the public, free of charge, no registration is required.

The event will be held outdoors on the grounds of Oakwood Resort, with activities starting with music by a brass ensemble on the gazebo near the Oakwood Inn. At 6:30 we will light the Christmas tree and sing carols around the lighted tree. Then you and your family may stroll up the lighted path to see Santa and Mrs. Claus. Take pictures with the kids! Listen to an elf read the Night Before Christmas. Stop along the path to listen to two different barbershop quartets sing carols. Get warmed up with some hot chocolate and munch on a cookie. Watch out for the Grinch! Other characters will be roaming the grounds and available for pictures too. Stroll up to the historic Oakwood chapel to hear the Christmas story read. Stop to see the live nativity on your way to the chapel. And you’ll want to relax and enjoy a horse drawn sleigh ride around the park. These are just some of the many fun activities at the Old Fashioned Christmas celebration. Hope for a bit of snow, but if severe weather occurs, check the Chautauqua-Wawasee Facebook site www.facebook.com/ChautauquaWawasee for information and updates. And since this is Small Business Saturday, Syracuse’s retail stores and restaurants are offering special Christmas treats.

Oakwood Resort was a beautiful place to stay and everyone treated us warm and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the restaurant was delicious and the staff was great! Alex has been especially helpful before and after our stay and I highly recommend this place!
Linda and I had a great get away at the Oakwood Resort. On this particular evening we ate out on the deck and took the boat ride with Captain Jim. We had wonderful appetizers! The boat ride was fun and informational. We would definitely recommend this resort to our family and friends. Thanks for the hospitality!
Lovely day.
Third time visiting on 2 hot August days. Staff and food very nice but the room was uncomfortably damp and mildewey smelling. Not up to par. Made the stay less than wonderful.
Beautiful oakwood resort I took this early in the morning the perks of working here 😍
Parking
Put the correct signs in the park so people know where to park and where not to. If it says parking you should be able to park. If yes means yes then no means no. You have signs that say park and signs that say don't park but we were towed in a parking spot that is clearly marked parking. There are cars parked in yards and in the road because they can not park in the open parking spots that are clearly marked parking.
We had a great time at the Oakwood with family! 👍❤️⛵️
I was so beyond pleased with the resort, spa, and planner's who helped shape my wedding this past Saturday. The resort staff were amazing with allowing my wedding party to be checked in early (before the 3pm check in). The rooms were beautiful, and my photographer raved over my suite being perfect for photography ( mostly of my girls and I getting wedding ready). Staci the planner was nothing less than amazing in communicating, planning, and seeing through all the details of my ceremony and reception. I honestly am beyond appreciative to of had her as I absolutely blew her email up constantly with random questions for the span of a year. The 702 salon and spa did amazing with trials and with recreating photos we provided. Overall, I adore this venue. The only negative thing I could say, is despite several positive trips to the insight restaraunt, the weekend of my weekend I had a terrible experience. The staff (younger and not the staff I have seen during the week) were beyond rude to myself and wedding party on BOTH trips we made to the restaurant (dinner during our rehearsal night and breakfast on our wedding morning). They were snippy, rude, almost refused to seat a party our size (10 people), demanded that we go outside and talk to the outside staff if we wanted to sit there (as if the inside and outside of the restaraunt are completely separate entities?) And did not communicate well amongst each other (they broke our party up into two tables and argued with each other over the table my fiance and I were sat at). Very unprofessional. All else aside, it was an amazing weekend.
My wife and I were married there June 1. Can’t say enough terrific about the staff and accommodations. Food was excellent, facilities super clean and massages at the spa were top-notch. No detail was overlooked in making our wedding a dream come true. Special thanks to Kayla, Staci and the front desk staff. True professionals in all aspects.
Thank you Oakwood for your great help in hosting the North American DN Ice yacht regatta. It was an epic event and the 119 sailors from 8 countries were very impressed with the hospitality of our community . Wawasee is now on the map as an ice sailing destination . Thank you again Rick Lemberg ,Wawasee iceboat squardron
