This was our 5th year returning to the Tyler Place and it did not disappoint! Our son was in the teens group and we were a bit worried, but he had his best year ever! Our daughter is 9 and was so excited to go back she was counting down the minutes! The Tyler Place has the best mix of family time and adult time! We love to take advantage of all the activities from waterskiing and sailing, to rock climbing and hiking and biking and of course massage! The social aspects of Tyler Place are the best...everyone is so friendly and relaxed......Definitely worth it! We will go back next year!

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.

Room Tip: Be sure to inquire about location of the house and if you or a family member has physical limitations, be careful about the hills and rocks.

We just returned from our second trip to The Tyler Place. Our children are 4 1/2 and 8 and had an even better time than last year (didn't think that was possible). This year we immediately settled into the routine. We rarely saw our 8 year old who often spent the afternoons hanging out with friends from group. The food was even better than I remembered and my husband and I enjoyed tennis, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking and skeet shooting.

Over 80% of the families were former guests and it was great to reconnect with many that we met last year. A friend asked me if I had any negatives and I can't think of one other than to say, as other reviewers have, that this probably isn't a vacation for extreme introverts. You can definitely have "down time" but all meals are a pretty social occasion.

Advice for new guests:
- pick out your bikes as soon as you get there to avoid them being "picked over"
- sign up for the next day's activities the night before during cocktail/hour dinner...there is something for everyone from yoga and arts and crafts to sailing and mountain biking
- take advantage of the laundry service - very reasonable
- sign up for a family portrait when you first arrive - great price and excellent quality
- don't buy/bring too much food/drinks for your cottage. We tried to buy less this year and still had too much. You are fed amazing meals all the time (and delicious appetizers at 5:30). I'd recommend just some bottled water and fruit/granola bars for the kids if they are early risers and can't wait until 8:30 to eat breakfast with their group
- pick at least a night or two and line up a babysitter so you can go back to the Inn for the adult entertainment - Jazz, Karaoke, Dance Party, Monte Carlo Night, etc.
- when you first arrive you may feel a little "underwhelmed". Some of the staff housing lines the main road and the cottages are definitely not plush. They are however very comfortable and have everything you need.

Room Tip: If you are at all interested call and get on the waiting list NOW. People make reservations up to a year in advance. You can read more about their waiting list on their website.

This was our first experience at the Tyler Place Family Resort. We were there during the fourth week of July. The setting is pretty and serene, located on Lake Champlain only two miles from the Canadian border. The grounds of the resort are clean and very well-maintained. The food is incredible. The child care/activities are great. The organized adult activities are incredible. The best part is befriending fellow guests and staff. The way it works is the week that you stay is your week until you don't want it anymore (or your kids are too old to come anymore, whichever comes first). You can always switch weeks, but if you keep the same week, you most likely will vacation with the same guests annually. It really is great. I must admit, I am on the introverted side and was a little leary about dining with other guests at every meal. But, by the second day, I was in the groove of things and loved it.

Recommendations:
-Participate in as many of the organized activities as possible; this is where we got to know most people with whom we dined.
-Do the low ropes course; you'll know why after you do it.
-Don't come with a huge group of friends or family; bring your spouse and children; this will force you to fraternize with other guests instead of those whom you already know.
-Try to eat with different people every night
-If you need "down time" as I did, there are a few two seater tables that you can use when you need them (we did at breakfast and sometimes at lunch).
-Don't expect luxury accomodations; the cabins are rustic and not very modern; but you won't be spending much time in the cabin anyway.
-Be open minded, and just have fun!

The Tyler Place is one of those unique places--and it is the staff that really make it amazing. There really are lots of people who keep going each year. Couple things to know however, when they say they really don't want kids at the adult meals, they aren't kidding. Kids can come to breakfast, but only the teens are permitted to choose foods from the buffet--younger kids are not even allowed in the room where the buffet is served. Bring your passport---they are super close to Canada and the pottery class requires you to travel to Canada. Also, turn off your cell phone roaming or you may get a huge bill if your phone 'roams' to Canada. It was a wonderful experience.
