Family friendly lodging is just what the name implies: lodgings -- for example, beach and ocean resorts, that understand the (sometimes) loud and messy needs of kids and parents on an exciting family vacation.
The lodgings have thought of all the angles to help make a family welcome and well served with features and suggestions for all kinds of family activities and great things to do on a family vacation.
Inn is your launching pad into the delights of a traditional New England town
The Old Lyme Inn, premiere lodging nestled in Old Lyme’s historic Art District, is a perfect place for families looking to spend some time together in one of New England’s great little towns. With your comfortable guest room as your headquarters, you can explore the town’s art museums, shops and galleries or head over to Rocky Neck State Park for hiking, fishing, swimming or picnicking. Hiking and fishing are also popular activities at Devil’s Hopyard State Park, where you can watch the waters of Chapman Falls plummet more than 60 feet over a series of natural steps. The inn’s casual restaurant is a hit with kids and adults alike, with its changing menus and Sunday Jazzy Brunch (ask about chocolate chip pancakes).
