What type of lodging is best for family retreats?
Our Lodge Rooms are best for families of 3-6 people and Cabins are best for families with 5-8 people. Family retreats do not typically book the Bunk Houses unless they have upwards of 30 single guests (i.e. teen or young adult cousins, siblings, etc) who wouldn’t mind staying in the Bunks.
Which Activity Add-Ons are best for family retreats?
The interests and abilities of guests in Family Retreats can be quite varied, so many times, our Activity Packages, which provide something for everyone, can be a great option. The Ascent Package (which includes ziplines, obstacles, climbing tower, pedal carts, animals, etc.) can be a great option. Families also enjoy Field Games, the Scavenger Hunt, Physical Challenge and Escape Rooms.
