Editor’s Review of Tyler Place Family Resort

Tyler Place resort, set on 165 acres of woods, meadows and lakeshore in northern Vermont, is not just another family resort. Almost nothing about this place is ordinary -- from its remarkably tasty food to its exceptionally warm staff -- come prepared to be pleasantly surprised. A stark contrast to mega-resorts and cookie-cutter chains, Tyler Place truly is a unique vacation experience for families. An all-inclusive waterfront property with meandering carriage houses, rustic country cottages and a top-notch children's program, the resort offers a great escape from the modern day, bringing families back to basics by providing simple pleasures. You'll find good company, great fun and something not easy to come by for many parents: quality ... more time away from the kids.

Indeed, one of the big draws of this resort is its terrific children's program, which allows kids to take part in an incredible array of supervised group activities each day and evening, while allowing mom and dad time to reunite as a couple by enjoying their own grownup activities and share in intimate dinners each night.

Families have a choice of staying in a cottage or family suite. Cottages and carriage houses are scattered across the property and come in several configurations from tiny to sprawling; so, be sure to ask which best suits your family. Many cottages have fireplaces and screened porches, kitchenettes and sitting rooms, and all have private baths. Cottages are comfortable but rustic. You will see critters. If you aren't comfortable with this, consider staying in a suite in the main inn. If you have small children or are not comfortable biking or walking on a regular basis, you might want to let them know you prefer to be near the main inn. You don't necessarily need to be; you can drive, but parking near the inn is limited, especially at mealtimes.

Our two-bedroom cottage was more than adequate. We had a kitchenette with dinnerware, a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. We took advantage of this by stocking up on snacks, sodas and wine at the convenience store near the entrance to the resort. You can get just about anything there, from sewing kits and Band Aids to beer and cheese.

We also had a small sitting area with a couch and fireplace, a huge treat for us. Despite it being August, evenings were cool enough to make use of them. We city folk felt like pioneers. The two bedrooms were comfortable but a little tight; the kids used the bunks in the second bedroom, and we had a crib brought to the room in case my 2-year-old took to wandering in the night.

Cribs, high chairs, diapers, sunscreen, thermometers and over-the-counter medicines are available at the front desk, but there is no nurse or doctor on-site. The nearest hospital is about 20 minutes away.

There is no room service available, and there are no televisions or phones in any accommodations. While we found no television to be a godsend, we found the lack of phone slightly annoying when we needed something from the front desk. Wi-Fi is available in the main inn, and cell phone service is generally quite good everywhere. Baby sitters are available for in-room sitting for an additional fee.
