These Destinations Are Ideal For Your Next Luxury Family Vacation

The next school break is approaching faster than you might think. Instead of trying to entertain the kids at home, why not take advantage of the week off to make new memories with the ultimate family vacation?

If you don’t have any plans yet, there’s still time to book a stay at one of Drip Castle’s luxury vacation homes in Taos, NM or Stowe, VT. Both estates accommodate 30+ people in destinations that are secluded yet centrally located and full of amenities for the whole family—from hot tubs and swimming pools to tennis courts and more.

Outdoor Fun For the Whole Family

With snow covering the nearby mountains through early April, a long ski season awaits whether you stay at Gem Hacienda in Taos or Meadowstone Manor in Stowe. Epic Passholders can make use of their membership at Stowe Mountain Resort, while Ikon Passholders can head to Taos Ski Valley. Though both of these towns offer some of the best skiing in the country—and with far fewer crowds than the Poconos or Aspen—young children and non-skiers will also find plenty to enjoy like snow tubing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and dog sledding specifically in Stowe.

Meanwhile spring vacations lend themselves to a different set of activities. In Taos, that means hiking, river rafting, horseback riding, and hot air balloon rides. In Stowe, there are also many opportunities for hiking, along with maple sugaring and trout fishing. And no matter the time of year, Taos is perfect for art lovers with dozens of galleries to peruse, while Stowe is a gem for craft beer lovers thanks to its many local breweries.

Service That Goes Above and Beyond

At Drip Castle, we know that luxury goes beyond upscale amenities and elegant decor. True luxury is all about providing the highest level of service so our guests can sit back and relax, knowing that everything is taken care of. Personalized service is something we excel at, but don’t take our word for it. Here’s what one previous guest had to say:

“The greatest part of this home is the care and concern of the management. They went beyond the norm in making sure everything was perfect for our family vacation. We have no words for their dedication and efforts…” — Samuel K.
