COVID-19 Reservations Update (January 2021)

While the Covid-19 situation is still evolving, our outlook for the summer season is optimistic and driven by these three cornerstones: the significant advances and availability in testing and the increasing availability of vaccines across the country; the assistance and safety record of Vermont’s state government…and, perhaps most of all, our constantly reviewed and updated safety procedures and projects.

The Tyler Place has always been known for its detailed planning owed in great part to being a summer resort with an entire 8-month period to devote to improvements, projects and planning. This year that advantage, bolstered by so much open and previously unused outdoor space, has been on overdrive as we plan our safety procedures for 2021.

In addition to testing protocols for guests and staff and all the normal safety practices of hotels and resorts, here are just some of the additions and modifications we are pursuing: smaller children’s group sizes; additional sheltered and screened outdoor dining for adults, teens and kids; well-spaced, staff-served food stations replacing the self-serve buffet and more outdoor cooking and grilling options for the kids; much expanded outdoor activities and recreation for children and teens; more extensive and creative family activities to meet needs of all ages; updated WIFI and technology to assist with guest communications and replace in-person sign-ups, check-ins, check-outs, firm arrival and departure times on Saturday to allow for thorough cleaning, etc.

Of course, the highest priority of our family and staff—as it is with all guests—is to keep everyone safe and healthy and keep COVID out of The Tyler Place. In spite of recent vaccination developments, it is likely that testing will remain a critical part of our safety strategy and we are working with the State of Vermont to secure frequent, rapid testing for the summer. We’ll be requiring that all families are tested before departure from their home state and again at The Tyler Place. The same will be required of our staff, who will also be tested regularly throughout the summer. 

While our overall approach to planning for next season is focused on our safety protocols, we are fully committed to retaining the essence of what makes the Tyler Place a unique, enjoyable and special family vacation experience for each member of your family. It is our hope that a good portion of the procedures and protocols we are working on will prove unnecessary come summer, and as we learn more of where things stand in regard to the COVID situation, we will be following up with more information to keep you up-to-date. 

Thank you for your interest in our resort, and warm regards from all of us.

Helpful Information

Duration of Stay

In order to create the sense of community and friendships among guests throughout each week, we only take bookings on a Saturday-to-Saturday basis, with the exception of our very first and last weeks (which include Memorial Day Weekend and Labor Day Weekend, respectively), when 3-day, 4-day and 5-day stays are also available.

Cottages and Family Suites

Each of our 73 accommodations is unique, and, along with the dates of your stay, location of your accommodation is the primary factor that affects your rate. Cottages closer to our main Inn and those that enjoy lake views, for example, may have a higher rate, but bear in mind that no matter where you stay in a given week, every family receives the same all-inclusive experience.

Far from your standard “hotel room,” almost all our cottages and suites feature separate bedrooms, living rooms, screened porches, and kitchenette or in-room microwaves and a fridge.

Dining

One of the distinguishing (and most beloved) features of a Tyler Place vacation is that kids dine with their friends and counselors during camp time, while their parents are able to relax and enjoy conversation over cocktails and meals. Kids enjoy healthy, varied food options in their own separate dining areas, and all food comes from the same kitchen and excellent chefs. While we do maintain a strictly child-free Bar and adult dining area, our Family Breakfast Room is available for families wanting to start the morning together, and you can get a lunch picnic basket at no extra charge.

Activities and Programming

Relive your summer camp days while your kids are living theirs. Our kids’ camps and teen programs are held mornings and evenings with afternoons devoted to family time. This gives you a relaxed chunk of morning time to choose a strenuous sport, laid-back activity, group adventure or activity, or simply read a book cover-to-cover. In the evening, we invite you to enjoy dinner, cocktails and informal entertainment at the bar each night (sitters available at an additional charge).

Infants & Toddlers

In addition to our full-fledged kids’ camp, we also provide a safe, fun, active and engaging program for our very youngest guests. For those of you with young children (under 2.5 years on arrival), we will match you up with one of our dedicated Parents’ Helpers who will be a consistent caregiver for your child(ren) throughout your stay. More information can be found via the applicable link(s). 0-12 Months | 12-18 Months | 18-30 Months

Reserve

Since we are an independent, family-owned resort and our all our guests are families, we do not offer online bookings. All reservations are personalized and handled through email and telephone so families have the best possible understanding of what to expect regarding accommodations, children’s programs, and dining during their stay with us.
