Summer Family Activities
Family First — No more “are we there yets,” never another “how much longer?”
Everything you need for a perfect family vacation is right here.
The Woodstock Inn & Resort is New England’s most luxurious family destination.
Outdoor Family Fun
Explore the fresh air of the Vermont outdoors with our numerous activities perfect for families! We went overboard on biking with so much to offer. We have Mountain Biking at Suicide Six fit for the whole family with complimentary strider bikes for the littlest members and a full rental fleet for all ages. For Mountain Bike purists, challenge the trails of Mt. Peg with up and down wooded terrain, or slow down and borrow a Cruiser Bike from the Resort and admire the town to Billings Farm & Museum and explore local gravel roads by way of two wheels. Hiking on Mt. Tom and through Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park is sure to lead to beautiful views, or take advantage of the park's great educational programs. Our Golf pros have designed a short course on 6 or 9 holes from our 18-hole complete course for an easy and relaxing family round! Speaking of relaxing, try the therapeutic sport of Fly-Fishing. Our Orvis Endorsed Guides offer families the opportunity to learn together; practice casting in our meadow then head to the brook and see who can catch the biggest fish! At the Athletic Club, families can partake in tennis rounds or lessons, or the timeless sport of croquet!
Just for Kids
We have a wide range of camps, programs and services that are catered specifically for kids and teens! For the adventurous, our Mountain Bike Park offers group lessons for kids to learn to navigate and ride down our mountain bike trails, and our beginner practice area can prepare anyone so they leave feeling confident and ready to shred! Our Kid's Summer Camps offer a wide range of activities in two-hour programming segments. They are customized daily through July & August. Programming includes a variety of fun-filled activities at the Mountain, Billings Farm & Museum, the Athletic Club and around the Resort. For the teens that need a little pampering, our world-class Spa is just the ticket. We offer various treatments starting at age 12 and up. For younger ones, Kelly Way Gardens and Billings Farm are home to Fairy Houses, so you can make a wish and leave a note for the magical world to find.
More Family Experiences
Kelly Way Gardens is a great place to find something for everyone. Interactive Cooking, Gardening, Tours and Tastings are all perfect ways to gather together and experience something uniquely Woodstock. Also offered are our special Red Barn Dinners with exceptional cuisine that teens will love to eat and photograph because it is a truly artful culinary experience. Try a Family Tennis Lesson where everyone can learn new skills together with a little bit of friendly competition. Everyone wins when you head to the pool for a swim; relax in the sun, or make a splash! At night, allow our guide to take you on a family appropriate Ghost Tour that leads through the Village of Woodstock giving you a glimpse into the history of the town. Finish the night with S'mores by our outdoor fire pit on the South Lawn! Anytime of day is a good time to hang out in our awesome Retro Game Room, kids and parents alike will have a blast playing pinball, pool and so much more! And when you need to admire the arts, Artistree is the best place around!
