Those of you still looking for a New England vacation with the kids this August have an exciting option outside of some of the tried and true family resorts (The Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Equinox in Manchester,VT and Chatham Bars Inn in Cape Cod come quickly to mind – and are all excellent choices ,  IMO). Twin Farms, the five-star  luxury inn situated on 300 acres in Vermont that is usually off-limits to kids, is having family week  August 8th through the 12th (this is the 3rd annual family week) — and there are still a few cottages left (the picture to your right is the Aviary suite)!  And even better – children under 18 stay and dine for free!

To learn more about Twin Farms,  see my earlier post under Quick Getaways or visit their website.

Special family activities planned during this week at this all inclusive getaway include:

  • Twin Farms Backpack with Goodies upon Arrival
  • “Bird on Glove” Live Raptor Show with Vermont Institute of Natural Science
  • Nature Arts & Crafts
  • Copper Pond Exploration with Montshire Museum
