Vermont hotels, inns, resorts offer family-friendly and kid-friendly stay

Vermont's hotels, motels, inns, and resorts strive to be family and kid friendly, welcoming parents and children with a relaxed atmosphere and, in some places, lots of planned activities for the kids. Some VT family friendly lodgings have kids camps, with swimming, arts, field trips, and cookouts. Some offer day care, playgrounds, and kids night out activities. And any vacation spot in Vermont is, of course, surrounded by world-class skiing, golf, hiking, biking, swimming, sightseeing, and just plain relaxing, for adults and children.

Families have been falling in love with this gracious farm inn for decades

It’s impossible to imagine families not falling in love with the Liberty Hill Farm & Inn, where guests have been enjoying the everyday adventures of the farm life since 1984. The inn’s Greek Revival-style main house goes back to 1825 and features cozy rooms and plenty of private nooks. But it’s the barn that’s the big draw: Kids can help milk a cow, bottle-feed a calf, explore the hay loft or cuddle with kittens. Outside, there are berries to pick, meadows to romp in, trails to hike. (And, yes, there’s also wifi.) There’s nearby fishing, swimming, biking and museum-going. Meals are casual, served family style, bountiful and oh so delicious. Gather together in the evening on the farm porch to watch the stars come out.

Liberty Hill Farm B&B is reopening this May - Please follow our link to reserve your stay today!
