Family Travel

The Mad River Valley is a wonderful place for families to relax together with the beautiful Vermont mountains as its backdrop.

The Valley is full of activities for kids; from world-class ski schools at our three ski mountains, to swimming and tubing in the Mad River, to dancing on the green to live music at the Farmers Market.  Check out many of the activities for kids.

At home you can enjoy the beauty of our homes while the kids relax in our customized "kid zones".  At naptime you can relax on your private deck and gaze at the mountains and our gardens.
