The best part is the kids are completely, 100% taken care of and fed three meals a day while being entertained for 8 hours a day. That gives parents peace of mind and ability to relax as we don’t have to worry about anything.
— N & T, Farmhouse South, Penfield, NY, 7/17 to 7/24/21
As this was our first year here, we were so thoroughly happy to be able to give ourselves and our children this incredible experience. This feels like such a special, wholesome and magical place and we are thankful we could be here.
— A & R, Ferncroft D, Bethesda, MD, 7/17 to 7/24/21
This has been our 12th week at The Tyler Place. When our kids were small, they loved it. Now we come as a three-generation family with our adult children and our grandchildren. It is a magical place that is truly a vacation for all!
— B & A, Inn #5-6, Wayne, NJ, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Just the absolute perfect vacation for you and your children. Perfect blend of family vacation and adult vacation. You choose your speed. The service is outstanding! The Tylers are lovely!
— I, Butterball, Portland, OR, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Spent many years here as a child and loved it. Wanted to share it with my wife and kids and they loved it as well. We will be returning next year.
— M & G, Woodcrest, New Hope, PA, 7/17 to 7/24/21
We had a great time. Thank you for having us and enjoy your summer!
— C & M, Tyler North, Chevy Chase, MD, 7/17 to 7/24/21
We enjoy the choices for activities. Friendly and accommodating staff, beautiful environment and gardening with Claudia! We also enjoy the many opportunities to meet people. When we are at the T.P., we are always well cared for.
— C & C, Inn #103, Camas, WA, 7/17 to 7/24/21

Great time was had by the whole family – separately and together!
— C & J, Stork, Brooklyn, NY, 7/17 to 7/24/21
It has been a tough year for everyone. Our family could not wait to return this year. The Tyler Place still and will continue to be our “Happy Place”.
— M & K, Tyler South, Marblehead, MA, 7/17 to 7/24/21
No suggestions for improvement. As lovely and enjoyable as ever: no – more so after the past year-and-a-half of Covid, work, and single parenting. To say I needed this is understandable. Thank you. My children don’t want to leave and sing songs all winter. They sleep WELL at night and pop up in the morning raring to go all week.
— P, Ferncroft C, Ann Arbor, MI, 7/17 to 7/24/21
The lawn socialization (tent, fires….) was excellent – a better use of space for appetizers and music.
— M & T, Inn #5, Oak Hill, VA, 7/17 to 7/24/21
We SO MUCH appreciated being here and know that everyone did their best to make this summer work. Thank you! We loved the new outdoor seating/fire pit on the lawn with live music – AMAZING!
— J & B, Goose, Stamford, CT, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Amazing scenery on beautiful Lake Champlain. Wonderful staff. Very welcoming, attentive, highly professional. And of course – amazing guests. Feel so much love and connection and humanity in here. Very, very, very special place. Thank you for creating this energy! Hope to be back many times.
— P & E, Carriage House II, Great Neck, NY, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Let me say thank you! Thank you for taking the leap of faith and opening back up. After so many months inside, this week was a blessing and a godsend to all five of us. You managed to do what many resorts could not and for that I feel blessed. After 5 years of coming to the T.P. we found comfort in many things. Mainly the fact that our kids loved every minute of being here. As parents we were able to recharge our batteries and feel lighter going home.
— P & J, Ferncroft A, Davidson, NC, 7/17 to 7/24/21
We enjoyed our stay. Had excellent food, a lot of good activities, but found ourselves having to choose between things we wanted to do. Would be nice to offer activities on multiple days.
— J & L, Bayview, El Cajon, CA, 7/17 to 7/24/21
This is our 9th year. We love The Tyler Place and recommend it to everyone. Our kids look forward to this week all year.
— J & S, Woodduck, Pawtucket, RI, 7/17 to 7/24/21
The place was very clean, and the staff was very pleasant and friendly. Food was excellent. The activities were more strenuous than expected but Tamara was very happy with all the exercise. Impressed with ability to get indoor tennis courts. Aqua class was fabulous.
— K & T, Inn #1, Murfreesboro, TN, 7/17 to 7/24/21
It’s too long to describe here – hands down, the most enjoyable family vacation we’ve ever had. The T.P. has the magic figured out!
— A & D, Shearwater, Bellaire, TX, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Great staff. Always willing to help. Great programs and terrific family vacation.
— J & J, Butternut, Jupiter, FL, 7/17 to 7/24/21

— M & M, Inn #4, Mexico City, Mexico, 7/17 to 7/24/21
The food was amazing. The selection of activities topnotch. Cocktail cruise was a highlight.
— D & G, Farmhouse West, Mountain Brook, AL, 7/17 to 7/24/21
We love The Tyler Place! Even better experience the second year because of the relationships made the first year. An incredible family vacation in an amazing location.
— J & C, Partridge I, Columbus, GA, 7/17 to 7/24/21
The Tyler Place has been the perfect family get-away for us for 8 summers. We look forward to many more! Thank you!
— J & E, Canvasback, East Greenwich, RI, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Staff was amazing; archery was great; Erica and Sam were great; our Parent Helper literally MADE our vacation (Stephanie).
— R & K, Franklin House II, Springfield, OH, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Programming and kids’ programs are excellent, as are the staff!
— JT & E, Farmhouse West, Mountain Brook, AL, 7/17 to 7/24/21
A place where both kids and adults can play like kids – a “surreal” vacation experience…unbelievable to look around at young children, teens and adults interacting, talking, playing, biking – can’t help but smile.
— J & C, Franklin House I, Washington, MO, 7/17 to 7/24/21
The Tyler Place is so hard to put into words. Once you stay, it FEELS like home and you make friends that last a lifetime. It is truly a magical place that is incomparable to anything else!
— J & A, Redhead, Wayne, NJ, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Peaceful and relaxing vacation that has something for the entire family!
— A & G, Ferncroft B, Land ‘O Lakes, FL, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Great time. Fun had by all. Fishing with Capt. Gil was fantastic!
— B & C, Quail. Raleigh, NC, 7/17 to 7/24/21
I typically use the “T” word (trip) exclusively when describing get-always with the kids. The exception, of course, is my week at The Tyler Place when I can honestly say that I’m getting a vacation!
— T & L, Inn #117-118, Austin, TX, 7/17 to 7/24/21
Enjoyed our second year at The Tyler Place and hope to see a third year in 2022.
— L & J, Sugarland, TX, Butterball, 7/10 to 7/17/21
This is a magical place to experience as a family – even better with extended family!
— A & M, Portola Valley, CA, Ledgewood, 7/10 to 7/17/21
Liked conversations with other guests. Liked the variety of activities (for adults and children).
— M, Portland, OR, Carriage House III, 7/10 to 7/17/21
A ton of activities for parents and kids. Staff are all very approachable and kind.
— R & J, New York, NY, Franklin House I, 7/10 to 7/17/21
This is the only vacation we can imagine taking as a family built-in free time and family time, activities for everyone and my kids had a blast. There’s nothing better.
— N & J, Lincoln, RI, Hardack, 7/10 to 7/17/21
True family time is a gift that is often lost today. The Tyler Place remembers what this gift is and how to share it once again with all those who are lucky enough to find it! It is hard to find gems such as the T.P. among the clutter the world is throwing at us. Don’t stop doing what you do!! Healthy family life is as it should be.
— M & B, Stamford, CT, Lakeview, 7/10 to 7/17/21
After being home for a year and a half through COVID, it was wonderful to see our children have so much fun, meet new friends and enjoy so many adventures at The Tyler Place!
— E & C, Aldie, VA, Ferncroft F, 7/10 to 7/17/21
Our kids had their best week yet. They grew so much, became more connected to old friends and they grew more independent. They really were so happy. Thank you!!
— R & S, New York, NY, Popcorn, 7/10 to 7/17/21
Kudos Tyler family for not only pulling this off but making it a favorite week. After 18 months of pandemic life and working frontline as an anesthesiologist, it was cathartic for myself and our kids to come here, see our friends and have a blast. Thank you! So appreciate the challenges and that we could be here. Great job!
— S & A, West Hartford, CT, Willow, 7/10 to 7/17/21
We were so thrilled to be back at The Tyler Place this year! It’s hard to describe why it is so great because there isn’t just one thing. It’s the experience in total – the people, guests and staff as well as the variety of events and just the property and location. Perfect summer vacation.
— L & B, Ft. Mill, SC, Inn #102, 7/10 to 7/17/21
It’s a one-of-a-kind place where everyone is family – memories for a lifetime.

— C & P, West Hartford, CT, Ferncroft C, 7/10 to 7/17/21
I doubt we can say anything that hasn’t already been said. The Tyler Place is magical and equally amazing for both parents and children.
— A & M, Boothbay, ME, Mrs. T’s, 7/10 to 7/17/21
The Tyler Place is great fun for the whole family. We’ve made great friends and look forward to returning next year.
— N & S, Davis, CA, Inn #4, 7/10 to 7/17/21
We are so grateful to be here this year and thank you all for the extensive work that must have been necessary to make this possible. Thank you for all of your efforts! And the addition of the lawn space for happy hour and dining was great!
— K & E, Coopersburg, PA, Stork, 7/10 to 7/17/21
I didn’t even realize just how burnt out I was from the last year until I was a couple of days into this vacation when I suddenly felt whole again. Thank you!
— J & C, Wayland, MA, Woodduck, 7/10 to 7/17/21
We love coming back and seeing old friends, picking up right where we left off last summer. Also, we love the independence our kids have here to explore and make their own close friendships without us hovering.
— D & C, Wilmington, DE, Whistler, 7/10 to 7/17/21
This was our 40th year and it couldn’t have been better, even with the extra precautions we all need to make.
— D & L, Cheshire, CT, Inn #3, 7/10 to 7/17/21
We are now third-generation guests and love it here as much as ever!
— L & R, New York, NY, Tyler South, 7/10 to 7/17/21
I liked being able to try new things or things I wouldn’t necessarily do.
— L & J, Delmar, NY, Franklin House II, 7/10 to 7/17/21
Kids love the programs and counselors. We love meeting new folks and having some adult time. Great staff. Chad is wonderful and awesome.

Love the people, the counselors and the dedication to taking care of the kids/babies.

The Tyler family has built an amazing institution for family recreation. Just an amazing place.
— K & M, Camden, ME, Partridge I, 7/10 to 7/17/21
We absolutely love The Tyler Place. It is our happy place. We are so grateful for our time here and will return until our kids age out.
— R & L, Cypress, TX, Inn #7-8, 7/10 to 7/17/21
The Tyler Place is our home away from home that allows us to unwind and recharge. We have made some lifetime friends and we look forward to returning year after year.
— A & H, Winchester, KY, Hickory, 7/10 to 7/17/21
Fantastic staff. Excellent facilities. Our girls loved it! A & T, Broomfield, CO, Teal, 7/10 to 7/17/21
Everything and everyone are very good. P & F, Old Mystic, CT, Inn #1, 7/10 to 7/17/21
The T.P. provides an unparalleled opportunity to unwind and relax with your family in a beautiful place! A true break from all the “work” of family life so that you can truly play and connect with your kids!
— D & L, Glenmont, NY, Inn #101, 7/3 to 7/10/21
It was a very welcoming community and many times it was reinforced that it was a-okay not to remember names which made it better. Great job making this an open, welcoming community.
— L, Merion Station, PA, Farmhouse West, 7/3 to 7/10/21
I actually can’t even imagine a more attractively sited, fun, better organized, better equipped, better staffed, better run resort. We had a wonderful time!
— P & D, Arlington Heights, IL, Willow, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We had another wonderful week at The Tyler Place! We love the “formula” here and it’s a true vacation for parents while the kids have a blast. We especially loved the new outdoor space/fire pits/cornhole games for cocktail hour and new outdoor eating areas. So happy to be here after sadly missing 2020. We also very much enjoyed the live music!
— G & Y, Middletown, NJ, Tyler South, 7/3 to 7/10/21
This is the place to relive camp days of youth – but it’s soooo much better. Go at your own pace, explore your favorites (without outside input from the kids), and make your inner child happy. This place has it all from the food to the bar, to water sports, tours, games and arts and crafts – anyone can find their happy place.
— D & L, Herndon, VA, Inn #102, 7/3 to 7/10/21
Tennis with Jake was excellent. He is knowledgeable and fun! Mark (fly fishing guide) was spectacular! We went on a half-day trip and had an amazing experience.
— G & J, Arlington Heights, IL, Willow, 7/3 to 7/10/21
Not having to feed my kids for a whole week; the chance to make new adult friends and enjoy catching up with friends from previous years. Adventurous and diverse activities for everyone. Natural environment/setting.
— K & B, Brookville, MD, Franklin House I, 7/3 to 7/10/21
This was the best vacation we have ever taken as a family. It was so easy, fun and social.
— B & B, Weston, MA, Farmhouse South, 7/3 to 7/10/21
An amazing family vacation in every way.
— P & V, Chappaqua, NY, Butterball, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We had such an incredible family vacation here. It was the perfect mix of fun and relaxation. I felt like we had a chance to enjoy time with our kids and time as a couple (and make many new friends on the way). I just wish we had discovered it 10 years ago when our kids were smaller!
— C & S, Nashville, TN, Woodcrest, 7/3 to 7/10/21
The Tyler Place has meant so much to my wife and me this week. Not only have we enjoyed the events, the meals, activities and setting, but we loved the moments in between when we can reconnect with one another while enjoying something as simple as a bike ride to breakfast or a walk in the woods. Our week here has been one of the best things we have ever done for our marriage.
— S & A, Bend, OR, Farmhouse West, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We love coming back to T.P. every year. Truly magical place and highlight of our summer.
— C & J, Washington, DC, Quail, 7/3 to 7/10/21
Honestly, we had a great week! As first timers we felt so welcome, and our entire family had a wonderful time. Thank you!

Great balance of family/adult time and activities with incredibly friendly staff.
— J & M, Shrewsbury, NJ, Ferncroft A, 7/3 to 7/10/21
The Tyler Place never disappoints.
— B & K, Acton, MA, Farmhouse Down, 7/3 to 7/10/21
Our 15-year-old has spent the past 16 months in his room. We’ve been worried. Within 24 hours here, he was riding a bicycle with several other Sr. Teens. THANK YOU for giving him the environment he so desperately needed.
— C & L, Millburn, NJ, Kingfisher, 7/3 to 7/10/21
It has far exceeded our expectations. We were able to do so many fun activities and relax.
— E & A, Cresskill, NJ, Ferncroft C, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We really enjoyed our stay. It was quite the trip for us to get here, but it was worth this unique visit. The weather and scenery are fantastic. The love and care that the Tyler family and employees show for The Tyler Place is evident in all the details. Each family member gets special care, and all had a great time!
— R & K, Cedar Park, TX, Ferncroft F, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We look forward to our T.P. trip all year. It has become a family tradition that we treasure.
— R & C, Newton, MA, Inn #104, 7/3 to 7/10/21
Love all the many changes that have been made over the years. The pandemic changes…such as outdoor seating/dining areas…were awesome. So happy you were able to survive over the pandemic. Let us know if you need anything. We want to be sure you are around for many years to come!
— C & J, Newton, MA, Inn #115-116, 7/3 to 7/10/21
The perfect family summer vacation. Our kids can’t wait to go back!
— R & S, Bloomfield, NJ, Ferncroft B, 7/3 to 7/10/21
I had no idea how much could be done to entertain both adults and kids. We’re impressed and had a great time. Imagining what it’s like when fully staffed and supply chains were more reliable! The perfect vacation.
— S & A, Jamaica Plain, MA, Franklin House II, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We had a wonderful time. It felt so good to return to this special, special place.
— P & A, Brooklyn, NY, Bluebill, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We have loved our stay at T.P. and look forward to coming with our children for years to come.
— D & M, Charlotte, NC, Hilltop, 7/3 to 7/10/21
A true vacation for the whole family We can’t wait to return next year and see our sweet friends again!
— A & S, Franklin, TN, Goose, 7/3 to 7/10/21
Exceeded our expectations! And it was a joy to watch our children build their confidence and learn new things.
— S & E, Chevy Chase, MD, Muriel, 7/3 to 7/10/21
Lovely stay for kids and adults. Time to really enjoy each other and relax. Thank you!
— M & B, North Dartmouth, MA, Inn #7-8, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We are so thankful for all the hard work the T.P. team put into operating this year. One for the record books. I imagine staffing was an issue and we missed our international counselors’ friends, but T.P. pulled it all off and kept the magic alive. Thank you!
— M & S, Flemington, NJ, Goldeneye, 7/3 to 7/10/21
We have the best time in our happy place knowing everything is taken care of and we can just come and enjoy all that the T.P. has to offer. THANK YOU!!!
— J & L, Springfield, PA, Elmwood West, 6/26 to 7/3/21
We love that the kids can go to camp, but we still see them during the day for our family vacation. It’s absolutely the best model around. The food is amazing! We love that there are so many boating options.
— R & C, Port Jefferson Station, NY, Whistler, 6/26 to 7/3/21
We have never had a vacation like this before. We could go as hard as we wanted and then relax as much as we wanted. Everyone was at their own pace this week. Our kids had a blast and we enjoyed them so much when we saw them, exhausted and excited – to get up and do it all again. We can’t wait to come back!
— M & H, Locust Grove, VA, Bluebill, 6/26 to 7/3/21
Teri taught a first-time sailor hands on training on a low wind day. The wait staff with their great smiles (Roy, Arna, Karena, Coco, Riley…). The counselors for the Sr. Teens were especially amazing.
— A & N, Annandale, VA, Inn #7-8, 6/26 to 7/3/21
What an experience! This is a very special place that escapes description due to the vast array of opportunities and experiences from exhausted kids, two tired adults. It was simply amazing!
—N & C, Humble, TX, Ferncroft A, 6/26 to 7/3/21
Thank all of you who make this year at The Tyler Place possible. My grandnephew wanted to stay forever. Remains true to itself, a place where children and adults can play, have family time, individual time and then as a couple. Nothing is ever a problem at Tyler Place.
— J & R, Brooklyn, NY, Goose, 6/26 to 7/3/21
As always, the kids’ programs were incredible. Both of my nieces had a magical, fun week. They are dying to come back next year. Love being at T.P. with the best, dearest, most fun friends that I have from our many years together during week #4. It is such a gift!
— T & K, West Roxbury, MA, Woodduck, 6/26 to 7/3/21
Best family vacation! You have to try it to truly appreciate the place, staff and great feel, atmosphere and culture created by the Tyler family.
— J & S, Baltimore, MD, Kingfisher, 6/26 to 7/3/21
This place is magical. The whole family is happy here. The variety of activities is great. The staff is kind and sooooo helpful. The fun and experiences make this the ideal vacation for our family.

— H, Solon, OH, Inn #4, 6/26 to 7/3/21
Perfect after COVID!
— D & E, Bethesda, MD, Park, 6/26 to 7/3/21
Food was so good! A very diverse menu. Something for everyone.
— V & A, Pembroke, MA, Carriage House III, 6/26 to 7/3/21
We were thrilled to return to The Tyler Place after COVID prevented our 2020 stay. It is such a treat to see old friends, relax, enjoy the lake and other activities, and know that our daughter is having a wonderful time and is well cared for when she is not with us. There truly is no vacation like a Tyler Place vacation.
— L & A, West Hartford, CT, Ferncroft D, 6/26 to 7/3/21
Nice vibe. The staff make everything they do look fun and easy. The place was more beautiful than expected. Family oriented ambience more friendly than I expected. Staff more accommodating than expected.
— E, Davis, CA, Laura, 6/26 to 7/3/21
The property and programs for kids are amazing. Just the right blend of structure and freedom. Kids enjoyed the independence and we always felt they were safe. Loved the bike program! 11-year-old: “Food was great!”
— J & K, Littleton, MA, Farmhouse Down, 6/26 to 7/3/21
All staff is very friendly, smiling, and attentive to all our needs during our stay. Eager to please. Food is excellent in quality and variation. LOVE the quiet closed doors in the Inn rooms.
— M & P, West Seneca, NY, Inn #1, 6/26 to 7/3/21
The friendships we have made are absolutely priceless.
— J & B, Swarthmore, PA, Teal, 6/26 to 7/3/21
5-year- old: “I like jumping on the trampolines.” 7-year-old: “I like the slides, the Sombrero and all of the things.”
— D & J, Mountain Village, CO, Sandpiper, 6/26 to 7/3/21
We are so grateful you are still here and still The Tyler Place in so many ways after a very harrowing time in history. Thank you. It was restorative and healing to be back.
— S & M, Wellesley, MA, Partridge II, 6/26 to 7/3/21
Best possible family vacation for every member of the family.
— D & O, Arlington, VA, Hilltop, 6/26 to 7/3/21
We had a wonderful vacation.
— R & S, Chicago, IL, Canvasback, 6/26 to 7/3/21
This was our first year at The Tyler Place and it exceeded our expectations! We weren’t sure how our 1 & 4-year-olds would adapt to the camp aspect and having a Parents Helper but they thrived! They were so excited for camp each morning and evening. My husband and I felt like kids, getting to play games, do low ropes and bike all over – knowing that our kids were so well cared for helped us relax and really enjoy our week! We can’t wait to come back again next year.
— M & E, Carriage House III, LaGrange, IL, 6/19 to 6/26/21
A great mix of relaxation, activities, socializing, family time, great food and fun!
— D & M, Ledgewood, Columbus, IN, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Truly the best place on earth! The whole family looks forward to it every year. I never imagined I’d make such great friends on vacation. And that wouldn’t have happened at any other place.
— W & K, Stork, Winchester, MA, 6/19 to 6/26/21
You never fail to impress us. I always sleep like a baby, eat like a king, and love the entire week. We look forward to this week.
— M & V, Hilltop, Greenwood, IN, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Enjoyed the outdoor seating. The opportunity to be as relaxed or active as you wish. Excellent staff!
— P & R, Ferncroft B, Lincoln, MA, 6/19 to 6/26/21
The T.P. is an amazing sanctuary for families, especially families with young children. This is the first vacation where I, as a mom, genuinely felt as though I was on vacation, too. Nowhere else have I had quiet time to read a book or take a tennis lesson or get a massage or even take a nap without a child of mine whining for my attention.
— S & J, Ferncroft D, Philadelphia, PA, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Every year is magical, even with changes this year. Still overall amazing.
— B & M, Partridge II, Boca Raton, FL, 6/19 to 6/26/21
This was the most fun I’ve had in years. It totally brought me back to my days of summer camp as a child – and it was so special to share it with my own kids as a parent now. Totally wonderful and an unusual experience to make new friends as an adult.
— T & D, Inn #101, McClean, VA, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Paradise for parents AND for kids.
— K & E, Ferncroft A, Brooklyn, NY, 6/19 to 6/26/21
This was our 9th year and we were overjoyed to return. You guys were HERE, you were open, and you clearly went above and beyond to get things as close to normal as possible. I know this was no easy feat for you and we can’t say how grateful we are.

The friendships you and your children build over the week continue beyond Tyler Place!

Our entire family loves it here. We are SO GRATEFUL that you were able to weather this past (very difficult) year. We really think that you did a tremendous job.
— N & S, Park, Greenville, SC, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We like the door between the kids & parents’ room in Inn #3. Accommodations are cozy but adequate. Excellent that people can eat with and meet new people and make friends.
— B & C, Inn #3, Tyler, TX, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We came here in 1978 for our honeymoon. Now we’re back with our children and grandchildren, hopefully for many years!
— H & A, Chestnut, Indian Head Park, IL, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We loved the atmosphere of The Tyler Place! Everyone is so friendly (guests & staff). The T.P. allows everyone to feel like a kid, while also providing fun adult experiences. Highly recommend!
— N & J, Elmwood West, Chicago, IL, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Tyler Place is very lovely. The staff is amazing and I am very appreciative of their extremely hard work. Chad did a great job advocating for the beauty here and was a great host. We would love to see T.P. in a non-COVID year.
— J & A, Farmhouse South, Hales Corners, WI, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We thought this may be our last year at The Tyler Place as our oldest is aging out of group. Within one day of being back on the property, we knew we would be back again next year. We are so grateful for our years at Tyler Place and the amazing friendships we have made. Thank you! So grateful to be back!
— K & A, Champlain, Glen Allen, VA, 6/19 to 6/26/21
This was our 6th year at the T.P. We enjoyed ourselves once again. We, the parents, got much needed time for ourselves and the kids had much needed time with other kids. The kids had a blast exploring trying new things and just getting fresh air and fun! We all seem to sleep so well while we are here!!
— E & R, Franklin House II, Zionsville, IN, 6/19 to 6/26/21
It’s very simple: The Tyler Place is genius. Thank you for creating such a wonderful place for families to spend the week – both alone and together.
— K & C, Ferncroft E, Haddon Heights, NJ, 6/19 to 6/26/21
The Tyler Place is great fun for children and parents alike. There’s always something fun and interesting going on. We met wonderful people and hope to see them again next year.
— D & S, Farmhouse West, Stamford, CT, 6/19 to 6/26/21, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Another incredible week for all of us at The Tyler Place. We enjoyed the daytime activities – the hardest part was choosing which one to sign up for each day. Friendly and helpful staff were SO welcoming – returning to The Tyler Place to see friends and staff was a balm for our souls this year!
— D & A, Farmhouse Down, Edmund, OK, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Another great family vacation at Tyler Place! Thank you!
— R & PP, Mallard, Winter Park, FL, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We had a wonderful week. We are grateful you opened and look forward to an even more “normal” experience next year!
— J & K, Ferncroft C, Ambler, PA, 6/19 to 6/26/21
DON’T CHANGE!! Seven years later and it’s still magical.
— T & E, Popcorn, Sarasota, FL, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We love it here. The friendships we have made with other families over 10 years have been incredible.
— A & J, Mrs. T’s, Westchester, OH, 6/19 to 6/26/21
This was our 4th year at T.P. and it’s ALWAYS great to see our friends, watch our children having fun, gain independence and make great friendships. The T.P. truly feels like a vacation!
— J & E, Franklin House I, Cambridge, MA, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We are so, so happy that this season was able to happen. Our family very much needed this week. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a wonderfully amazing week.
—C & B, Hickory, Chapel Hill, NC, 6/19 to 6/26/21
Definitely enjoyed. Thank you!
—D & T, Gypsy, Whistler, Madison, WI, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We loved Sam & Roy!! They are excellent!!! Also, our son loved Helena!
—B & K, Ledgewood, Columbus, IN, 6/19 to 6/26/21
The Tyler Place is magical. An absolute joy to be here.
—D & K, Muriel, Washington, DC, 6/19 to 6/26/21
The T.P. is my “happy place”. I look forward to it all year and so does my whole family. I feel so lucky to have found it.
—D & N, Butternut, Scottsdale, AZ, 6/19 to 6/26/21
The camaraderie is great. We love the setting, family atmosphere and friendliness of the staff. Everyone goes above and beyond.
—J & M, Inn #115-116, Raleigh, NC, 6/19 to 6/26/21
We are so glad we gave it a try 4 years ago. We love it more each year and The Tyler Place will be a focal point in our family’s memories forever! The magic is hard to explain, but undeniable!
— E & L, College Grove, TN, Ledgewood, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Loved everything! The staff are so nice. The activities are fun. Water sports were top notch (and we are Floridians who grew up doing water sports). Thanks for providing sunscreen at the boat dock. Loved that meals including lunch were all-inclusive and the “add-ons” were so reasonably priced.
— S & C, Gainesville, FL, Cedar, 6/12 to 6/19/21
The Tyler Place is the place to recharge with zero guilt. Family time, ‘me’ time and ‘we’ time all at one place, all inclusive, all unbridled joy.
— R & C, Moseley, VA, Sandpiper, 6/12 to 6/19/21
A breath of air in an otherwise structured and tuned life. A bubble of levity and reprieve, full of earth and laughter and a cocktail or two!
— Cortney, Ft. Worth, TX, B & K, Inn #102, 6/12 to 6/19/21
My brother has been telling us we needed to come to Tyler Place for about 7 years now. We put it off because we were nervous for our son to be gone/away at camp for so long during the day and stay up so late at night. Also, because he has food allergies, we were worried about him eating without us. After coming this year with our 8-year-old son, we now realize we missed out on 7 years of amazing family vacations at TP! The friends that the 3 of us made during our week here made our time so memorable…and fun!
— D & A, Key Biscayne, FL, Park, 6/12 to 6-19/21
We had a wonderful first visit to Tyler Place. It was the perfect balance for our family with young children. As many activities as we wanted, relaxing downtime, and an opportunity to socialize without worrying about our children.
— J & A, Newburgh, PA, Ferncroft C, 6/12 to 6/19/21
From the bottom of our hearts, making this year happen was an amazing happening and we are so appreciative.
— P & R, Sarasota, FL, Inn #117-118, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Enjoyed our stay. Great for a multi-generational family.
— J & J, Lancaster, OH, Farmhouse South, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Really enjoyed the extra outdoor seating and extra fire pits near the Arches. This week was just as good as we remember. Really appreciate how many options of things to do. The Tyler Place is our family’s favorite vacation! We’ll come back year after year.
— C, Ashaway, RI, Elmwood West, 6/12 to 6/19/21
The Tyler Place is our family’s favorite vacation! We’ll come back year after year for all of the wholesome fun.
— K & B, Colorado Springs, CO, Shearwater, 6/12 to 6/19/21
The Tyler Place Family Resort gives families a place to reconnect away from the hectic schedules of work and home. You’re able to spend time with your spouse, your children and by yourself which are all equally important.
— S & A, Atlanta, GA, Ledgewood, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and good food. Great that there are activities independently for kids and adults. Very peaceful setting.
— K & P, Amber, PA, Inn #5-6, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Just a note for the Tylers: It has been such a difficult year for everyone this year (and last). We truly appreciate your willingness to open up the camp (while keeping it safe) and know this is very challenging and stressful for all of you, and the staff as well. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers and that our opportunity to spend some enjoyable time both together and separate with our family is irreplaceable. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and stay well.
— A & D, Biltmore Lake, NC, Mallard, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Re-brand “Gardening with Claudia” – it’s more than “gardening”. She is fascinating and has SO many suggestions for life beyond “gardening”. We had a wonderful time. We are looking forward to next year!
— M & B, State College, PA, Inn #4, 6/12 to 6/19/21
I adore coming to Tyler Place and my entire family gets a full week of fun outdoor activities in this beautiful playground! We love Tyler Place!
— S & D, Atlanta, GA, Woodduck, 6/12 to 6/19/21
My husband and I felt like 16-year-old kids again riding our bikes and playing fun games! Wonderful experience for us and the kids have loved every second. This has been quite memorable for our entire family. Thank you!
— S & H, Fairfield, CT, Ferncroft E, 6/12 to 6/19/21
The Tyler Place is a Norman Rockwell summer camp experience. We’ve acquired so many memories and new friends from all over.
— K & J, Colorado Springs, CO, Shearwater, 6/12 to 6/19/21
BEAUTIFUL place – so well run and maintained. Exceeded our high expectations. Great experience for the entire family.

This was another wonderful stay. Everyone is leaving happy and tired!
— B & J, Louisville, KY, Chestnut, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Tyler Place has it all – for children and adults. Even grandmas. Many thanks for my golf cart! Awesome treat and perfect for me.
— B, Bradenton, FL, Inn #2, 6/12 to 6/19/21
This is the perfect family vacation!
— C & K, Lincoln, NE, Champlain, 6/12 to 6/19/21
The Tyler Place has been so important to our family for 15 years. Every year it is a chance to recharge and reconnect with each other after a year of busy-ness. It is the best week of the year every single year without fail. Some years we have different needs for our vacation time than others, and it always works no matter what. Great time for kids, great time for parents and great time for our family. 2021 was obviously a particular challenging year and there were some understandable slightly rough edges, but I would not have traded this week for anything.
— L & J, Cherry Hill, NJ, Farmhouse West, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Everything was great as usual.
— R & J, Farmhouse Down, Holmes Beach, FL
We love T.P.! Always look forward to our annual family reunion in this magical place. So relaxing and energizing. Great food, friends, staff and scenery.
— R & L, Bradenton, FL, Winnie’s, 6/12 to 6/19/21
We love T.P.! Way too much to list!
— M & M, Marietta, GA, Partridge I, 6/12 to 6/19/21
We love The Tyler Place culture that creates an inclusive, positive, and friendly environment. The staff is exceptional – going above and beyond to look after guests. The genius and magic of T.P. is, in part, that you can do as much as you want or as little as you want or somewhere in between.
— T, Philadelphia, PA, Ferncroft D, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Loved the new outdoor spaces. Really great addition – well done.
— A & L, Marietta, GA, Muriel, 6/12 to 6/19/21
The Tyler Place is the best-of-all-inclusive vacation that is fun for everyone in the family.
— R & A, Ft. Collins, CO, McGlynn, 6/12 to 6/19/21
This was the first time I really felt like I was on vacation since having kids.
— H & M, Aldie, VA, Butterball, 6/12 to 6/19/21
Always enjoy our stay at our true vacation spot! This might be our last year at T.P. and we tried to soak in every moment!
— S & C, Lutz, FL, Whistler, 6/12 to 6/19/21
We love the sense of community.
— S & A, Marshall, WI, Davies, 6/12 to 6/19/21
We look forward to the week at the T.P. every year because it is the only place kids and parents can have fun and relax at the same time.
— A & R, Rochester, MN, Inn #7-8, 6-5 to 6-12-21
This was a family vacation, time to spend with my parents and make happy memories. My dad was over the moon all week, so I’m thrilled.
— C & J, Tampa, FL, Popcorn, 6/5 to 6-12-21
We have come to love the T.P. We measure the year by how close we are to our “week 2”. What a great family tradition!
— C & M, Milton, GA, Stork, 6/5 to 6-12-21
This is the only vacation we could bring our little kids with us for and still get to actually relax and have a true vacation! And as important, the kids’ camps are not childcare – it’s a meaningful experience and activities for a time enriching camp experience, which is why there’s no guilt in dropping them off so much!
— C & W, Cheverly, MD, Elmwood West, 6-5 to 6-12-21
This week is THE highlight of our year. Our kids are thrilled with all aspects of their experience, and we have the chance to be as active or inactive as we would like without the daily pressures of parenting. The guests are amazing and we treasure the friendships we have built here. We love that this is a “plug & play” vacation – we don’t have to plan a single thing! We tell all our friends to check out The Tyler Place and none have regretted it.
— K & M, St. Louis, MO, Woodcrest, 6-5 to 6-12-21
The Tyler Place is like an annual family reunion with family members you actually like and want to be around!
— S & J, The Woodlands, TX, Park, 6-5 to 6-12-21
We love how active, yet relaxed, our week at The Tyler Place has been. And we love watching our kids grow in confidence through their group adventures.
— H & A, Ft. Collins, CO, Inn #10, 6-5 to 6-12-21
The Tyler Place is our 2nd home. It is our happy place. We never imagined we would be attending the same vacation spot 10 years in a row, but here we are, and we thankfully still have 6 more years left!
— J & L, Marietta, GA, Mrs. T’s, 6-5 to 6-12-21
I love everything about the TP starting with all the Tylers and Gige. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The food is yummy, the activities are plentiful, one can do as much or as little as one wants. And only once did they serve berry crumble without vanilla ice cream!
— M, Columbia, SC, Inn #1, 6-5 to 6-12-21
Tashia celebrated her birthday while here and it was awesome. Roy in the dining room was very nice and accommodating. Also, the Front Desk staff was very helpful and nice with getting a cake and shipping in some gifts. Thanks for another awesome year.
— M & S, Columbia, SC, Partridge I, 6-5 to 6-12-21
We really liked our accommodations. This is the first time we’ve been able to spend so much time alone as a couple or with other adults on a family vacation. Our children enjoyed having their independence and we all got to have fun as a family and with the people we met.
— G & R, Falls Church, VA, Willow, 6-5 to 6-12-21
Never a dull moment. Always something to do for everyone.
— J & D, Bellville, IL, Muriel, 6-5 to 6-12-21
It was an exceptionally fun week. Thank you for everything.
— A & K, Evansville, IL, Inn #103, 6-5 to 6-12-21
The Tyler Place is an amazing & unique family vacation that is equally loved by parents & adults.
— A & S, Tampa, FL, Elmwood East, 6-5 to 6-12-21
We just love it here and think the system you have created is unique and wonderful and is what keeps us coming back. It feels like this is the only place a MOM can get a vacation – and STILL be with her children! We realize this year has been unusually difficult and are grateful you were even able to be open. We get it and are very understanding that you did your best. The ambience and feel and relaxation were the same, which we appreciated.
— S & C, Princeton Junction, NJ, Inn #3, 6-5 to 6-12-21
The T.P. pulled together in difficult circumstances & delivered an amazing experience. We are grateful for the staff’s hard work & treasure our time here. See you in 345 days.Activities. People. Adventure. Relaxation and our kids ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT HERE.
— J & J, Morrow, OH, Inn #3, 6-5 to 6-12-21
We always love our week at TP so we can spend quality time with one another, meet old and new friends and are always entertained by the sweet staff. It’s part of our summer.
— G & S, Natick, MA, Hickory, 6-5 to 6-12-21
We had such a lovely time. We got a much-needed break and a beautiful vacation. Thank you!
— S & P, Jacksonville, FL, Hardack, 6-5 to 6-12-21
This year our kids gained some independence in a safe environment, and they love that.
— C & B, Orlando, FL, Inn #5-6, 6-5 to 6-12-21
It is obvious how much The Tyler Place staff cares about the guests and wants them to enjoy their stay.
— M & J, Pasadenia, TX, Winnie’s, 6-5 to 6-12-21
Our family’s annual visit to Tyler Place is the best week of the whole year. It really is a place that
has something for each of our family members.
— K & K, Mills, MA, Goose, 6-5 to 6-12-21
Thank you for adding a pickleball court! Next year I hope to have more players.
— B, Alpharetta, GA, Inn #115-116, 6-5 to 6-12-21
Tyler Place is wonderful and we know how HARD it has been for staffing, etc. We appreciate
everything you are doing and hope to be back to “normal” next year.
— B & M, Austin, TX, Inn #115-116, 6-5 to 6-12-21
Best vacation we’ve had since having a child. Everyone had a great time. Our 3-year-old asked if we could stay here forever. Will definitely be contributing to the database of glowing reviews on-line –
they were so accurate.
— B & S, Louisville, KY, Redhead, 6-5 to 6-12-21
This was our third year at Tyler Place and it truly feels like home.
— H & R, Bishop, GA, Tyler North, 6-5 to 6-12-21
This was a very challenging year and we’re SO happy to be back with friends. Thanks for working so
hard to overcome all of the challenges. The great times FAR outweighed the hiccups.
— T & V, Smithton, IL, Carriage House, III, 6-5 to 6-12-21
We didn’t know what to expect this year with COVID, but overall, it was a really good week. Some
changes, but it felt like a true T.P. experience. Sam & Eric were great and so much fun. Patrick,
the tennis instructor, was so engaging and sweet during our son’s tennis lesson.
— E & T, Tampa, FL, Shearwater, 6-5 to 6-12-21
This is truly a home away from home with many friends and familiar faces. We needed our week at T.P. this year more than ever! The Tylers went to great lengths to make sure guests were “safe”, and moved many things outdoors, as well as adding more outdoor seating and fire pits! Having live music outside before and during dinner was fabulous! Another great visit and we’ll be back!
— A & K, Inn #4, Dade City, FL, 5-28 to 6-5-21
From our 9-year-old: “Hanging out on a Sombrero with my new friends was the funnest.”
— D & J, Inn #104, Marana, West, AZ 5-28 to 6-5-21
The Tyler Place is the best vacation we’ve had as a family. It has something for everyone, and we count down the days until we can return.
— S & N, Goldeneye, The Woodlands, TX 5-28 to 6-5-21
I expected my older kids to love it – and they did – but I did not expect my 7-month-old to squeal with glee at the sight of his Parents Helper. I was completely confident that my kids were well taken care of and having a blast, which allowed me to relax and have a blast, too. Thanks so much for a fantastic week!
— L & J, Farmhouse West, Astoria Woodland Park, CO, 5-28 to 6-5-21
Thank you for another wonderful summer vacation. Tyler Place never disappoints. There was something for everyone, even our 16-year-old son.
— Y & S, Mrs. T’s, Wallington, NJ, 5-28 to 6-5-21
I have been wanting to bring our family here for years; I’m SO glad we finally made it! T.P. is such a gem – the perfect wholesome family vacation. I loved the choices that were available for activities; and also appreciated how encouraging everyone was of time for peace and quiet. I will look back fondly on both our fun-filled champagne cruise as well as time spent reading in our hammock, swaying in the breeze. The kids absolutely adored their groups and have asked if they can move here! I know that we will be back next summer and will look forward all year. Thank you so much for making out trip everything we hoped it would be and MORE! The food was delicious, the staff was amazing. The property perfection!
— R & M, Redhead, Marietta, GA, 5-28 to 6-5-21
Thank you for the stress relief! Everyone in the family had a great time, as always. Thank you for all the work to prepare for our visit during COVID. We were thrilled to return and experience that T.P. magic!
— L & J, Ferncroft A, Birmingham, AL, 5-28 to 6-5-21
The Tyler Place is like a giant family reunion. The people who go tend to want to come back year after year. The Tylers are so gracious and bend over backwards to provide an amazing experience for the whole family.
— D & M, Franklin House I, Fordyce, VA, 5-28 to 6-5-21
Loved the community atmosphere and kid camp. Loved the lawn cocktail hour each night – was so nice to have drinks, music and appetizers at the fire pit.

Best family vacation EVER!! We can’t wait to come back.

Everything was amazing and we will be back!

A very friendly, caring and accommodating staff.
— D, Inn #103, Cleveland, TN, 5-28 to 6-5-21
We love that everyone here works so hard to make it both fun and memorable. We love that there is never a shortage of things to do, keeping us active or entertained, or both.
— R & J, Sandpiper, Jupiter, FL, 5-28 to 6-5-21
We know it was a rough year. Still had a great time but hope next year staffing needs/food/housekeeping/kids’ pictures all goes back to normal.
— K & A, Inn #1, Glen Rock, NJ, 5-28 to 6-5-21
We loved outdoor cocktail hours. Music on Thurs. night was awesome! More team-based evening activities (karaoke, Charades, etc.). Builds community & encourages engagement.
— R & T, Butternut, Ellicott City, MD, 5-28 to 6-5-21
This is our favorite week of the year! We start counting down over Christmas break. Thank you for the irreplaceable family memories. Tyler Place is incredibly special, and we are so grateful to start our summer here every year.
— E & D, Willow, Greenville, SC, 5-28 to 6-5-21
This was wonderful.
— A & A, Muriel, Harriman, UT, 5-28 to 6-5-21
We thought the whole staff did a great job of working around COVID restrictions to allow everyone to feel safe, but still let this week feel like it did in the past.
— S & C, Gander, Carmel, IN 5-28 to 6-5-21
Third year we love it so much! Fun people and very hardworking staff!

We loved the grounds & water activities. The lake was amazing and so easy to go down and use the equipment.

Looking forward to non-COVID years. I think you guy did an amazing job in light of current events. We had an awesome time and the kids loved it!
— K & K, Kingfisher, Gainesville, GA, 5-28 to 6-5-21
We loved the warm atmosphere and assistance learning new faces and the lay of the land. The grounds are gorgeous! There was something new around every corner. The food was delicious and childcare top notch! Thank you.
— H & A, Williamsville, NY, Ferncroft D, 5-28-5/31/21

— A & R, Cambridge, MA, Franklin House II, 5-28 to 5/31/21
I appreciate how attentive and friendly the staff is. Authentic feeling; transparent; GREAT staff.
— M & P, Dunmore, PA, Tyler South, 5/28 to 5/31/21
We absolutely loved it! Our children told us they wanted to come back next year after their first day with their groups! The children’s programs are one of the things we love the most since it’s usually so difficult to entertain kids on vacation & the food was great! We’ll definitely be back!
— S & R, Campbellville, Georgetown, Guyana, Lakeview, 5/28 to 5/31/21
