Explore & Tour Nearby
While there is much to do on our expansive property, we love to explore all that Vermont has to offer, and our nearby Canadian neighbors in Quebec too. As an adult, you have the option to join in on many excursions and tours in our surrounding region, by bike, foot, or on the water.
Hiking & Biking
You’ll notice soon upon arrival at the Tyler Place that the main mode of transportation is biking- for our youngest guests up to the oldest. Every guest receives a one-speed bike for use for the week, including you! Use your bike to explore our many biking paths and trails. You can even try your hand at biking across the (very close) Canadian border! If hiking is more your speed, blaze your own trail roaming our 165 acres, or join a guided trip (hiking or biking) with our entertainment staff. Your journey may lead to a daring jump into a swimming hole or an idyllic picnic spot. Three levels of guided bike trips, and an off-property summit hike and picnic (swimming hole dip optional!) round out the scheduled offerings, and the possibilities for exploration on your own are nearly endless.
Tour by Water
Another favorite morning activity for our adult guests begins at the waterfront, with our various off-property kayak and canoe trips. Led by our knowledgeable staff, explore Vermont’s local waterways at a leisurely pace and take in the beautiful surroundings. Practice your teamwork skills as you share a large canoe with new and old friends alike, and also learn about the nature and health of our rivers and lakes. As you kayak down the river, you’ll have the chance to stop at a local winery for delicious tastings and an informational session.
Local Wine & Brew Tours
In additional to stopping by local wineries on your kayak trip down the river, there are often other opportunities to sip on Vermont’s renowned wines, brews, and spirits. Home to dozens of award-winning craft breweries, an afternoon brew tour may be in order for you and your friends! Or, stop by Smugglers Notch Distillery on your way back from a biking or hiking trip and try out some of their newest batches. There are also opportunities to tour breweries and vineyard in our norther neighbor, Quebec! For even more local food and drink tour options, check out our September Taste of Vermont celebration.

Opportunities for hiking
“After a terrific year one experience, we weren’t sure if the the T.P. could live up to our now much higher expectations (especially since we brought friends who bought our sales pitch on the resort). But it did! We had an even better vacation this trip – making more friends, doing different activities and enjoying the great outdoors! We love this place and think our friends did too, phew! Look forward to returning.”
“This vacation was ideal. Our kids were more than entertained. My parents and brother had plenty of activities that they enjoyed and my husband and I were able to go off on hiking, biking, sailing and other adventures. Our afternoons with the kids were so much fun and our meals alone were satisfying and delicious! Thank you to the Tyler family and your amazing staff who consistently delivered a vacation that met everyone in our three generation family needs! Every evening our 4-year old has asked us to move here forever!”
