Tyler Place is one of the best family resorts- hands down. I agree with most of the other reviews and would just point out that this is not a fancy Ritz type of resort. So, if you are expecting an insect free environment with poolside bar service and a shower that emits a lot of water, this isn't the place for you. There are no tvs in the bungalows (aka small, wooden cabins), no radios, and most don't have a washer and dryer. Spiders can become your friends (they eat mosquitos). There is a/c. However, that only adds to the uniqueness of the experience. As one who usually has the tv on, it was a nice break and plus I have the Ipad :-).
Tyler Place is heaven on earth for the kids. The staff is well-trained and amazing. All three of my kids couldn't wait to return to their "groups" for the day and evening activities.
Parents- bring a book, have a car to get out once in a while and discovery Vermont or Canada and be sure to book a babysitter for an evening activity.
The food is amazing and plentiful- only complaint is I gained a few pounds. According to my kids we'll be back or they'll never speak to me again.
