A great way to see what Vermont and Quebec have in store for you.
The Tyler Place Family Resort is conveniently located near many Family attractions here in Vermont and across the border in the province of Quebec, Canada. Many families find there are so many things to do at the Tyler Place; they are perfectly content with staying put! But those who venture out will find a pleasing array of things to do and see. There are many area attractions that can be accessed by simply taking the family out for an afternoon drive. Some families fly in a day early to nearby Montreal or Burlington to do some sightseeing before their Tyler Place vacation, some on the way home. The Front Desk has information, directions, and friendly local tips for the would-be explorers.
Vermont and families are made for each other.
Chances are your family will like our family’s favorite Vermont attractions and nearby family travel spots as much as our family does. Tylers have lived here in Vermont for six generations, so you’ll get an unusually personal connection to our local Vermont back country roads, Long Trail, Lake Champlain Islands, swimming holes, and local organic farms–or at Stowe, Vermont Teddy Bear, or Ben and Jerry’s. Vermont is so small, everything seems nearby!

Take in a family travel experience to nearby Quebec right from The Tyler Place Family Resort!
To reach Quebec’s Cantons de L’Est (Eastern Townships) from Vermont’s Tyler Place Family Resort just paddle or bike a couple of miles up the lake or road to the Quebec border. We’re that close. One of the “surprise” attractions of The Tyler Place Family Resort is our accessibility to Quebec’s Eastern Township with it vineyards, diverse family farms, small villages, fine art and craft artisans, cafes, and French and English Canadian culture. Kids love visiting a local village chocolatier, tasting Quebec’s famous tarte au sirop d’erable (maple pie), translating familiar, but en francais road signs and store products back into English. So akin are the Eastern Townships of Quebec and northwestern Vermont that we have created a regional area called VERMONTREAL.
Montreal, our favorite little “big” city with its winding old French city streets, amazing museums and shops, its fashion and food flair, is only an hour away-an easy family trip-or we’ll arrange an after program sitter for the afternoon (at extra charge, however) so the two of you can take off for the whole day.
Note: Be sure to bring your passports with you! New regulations require passports for adults and children over 16. A birth certificate is required for children under 16 who do not have a passport.
