Family Travel Deals Still Available for Procrastinating Planners

New England Inns & Resorts announces special offers for summer vacation

    NORTH HAMPTON, NH, July 09, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The smoke has already cleared from Independence Day firework displays, but it's not too late to book a fun-filled family summer vacation. For late-comer travelers still planning their summer vacation, New England Inns and Resorts has a few suggestions for making this summer one to Instagram about.

Tip #1: Go Somewhere New

Planning the perfect vacation at the last minute in the most popular destinations in New England can be challenging, especially on the weekends. Instead, consider trying out a new locale, like the lake district of Connecticut, the mountains of Vermont, or Massachusetts' adventurous Berkshires. They offer sunshine, swimming, hiking, concerts and festivals, great meals, and lots of family time without huge crowds.

Off-the-beaten-path Family Vacation Packages

506 On the River Inn in Woodstock, Vermont, includes tons of extras in their 506 Family Getaway package: toys from VT Toy Company, all the trimmings for a family movie night, tickets to local attractions like the Montshire Museum, and a campfire and s'mores to enjoy clear Vermont nights. Available for four-night stays by calling 802-457-5000 or emailing [email protected]

The Colonnade Hotel in Boston's Back Bay makes exploring the city with a family a breeze with the Family Connection package. Families will get tickets to a Boston attraction, like the Duck Tour, Children's Museum and Aquarium, full breakfasts, a Boston walking map, and guaranteed connecting rooms. Book online at or call 617-424-7000.

In Lenox, Mass., Yankee Inn offers a discount on passes to the Jiminy Peak Adventure Park with two-night, midweek stays in their Berkshire Family Adventure Package. Book online at or call 413-499-3700.

Tip #2: Go Midweek

Even the most popular destinations have more availability, and even special offers, for weekday stays, which is good news if you're thinking "Beach-or-Nothing!" Plan a shorter midweek getaway to fill up on sun and sea with fewer fellow travelers.

New England Midweek Family Deals

The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine, packs in tons of family fun with their Good Night Maine package. The package includes tickets for the InTown trolley tour and to the Seashore Trolley Museum, plus a stuffed animal and a copy of the book, Good Night, Maine to accompany milk and cookies at evening turndown. Call 207-967-4050 to book, or book on with rate code "GNM Summer."

Madison Beach Hotel in Madison, Conn., has beach getaway packages with waterview accommodations, breakfast and easy beach access for three and five night weekday stays. Call 203-245-1404 to book.

New England Inn & Lodge in Intervale, NH is offering a $119 midweek rate for families for the month of July, plus the option to purchase discounted tickets to local attractions. Book online at with promo code "July" or call 603-356-5541 and ask for the July Family Special.

Tip #3: Pick up the phone and ask!

Someone else's cancellation could be your vacation opportunity. If you've found the perfect place to hang your beach hat, but can't find exactly the right room, don't hesitate to give the hotel a call. Contacting your hotel directly is the best way to know what your options are, and oftentimes, they can work with you to find alternate dates, a different room type, or another solution that works for your trip. Plus, you'll also be able to ask about any packages or other special offers that you might have missed in your online research to ensure the best price.
