What is a Family Getaway?

Family Getaway is a three-night summer or winter retreat at Fort where you can experience time together as a family to grow together, build memories and play all day long. Maybe you can’t commit six nights to a full Family Camp, or maybe your schedule or budget works best to come for three nights. Either way, take a step and give it a try. You will be surprised what three nights can do. You may consider making your getaway at Fort a longterm tradition. Your kids will be begging you to do so, if what we hear from many parents is true!




When you come to a Winter Family Getaway, you will be surprised by the new memories you make. There’s so much to do plus great food to fill up your tanks when you’ve emptied them experiencing a grand adventure on the broomball court, skating rink or on a nature hike. Many families bring another family, or two, so that the memories can be shared. Give it a try. These fill fast. For upcoming openings, please call. Our Inn, Modern Cabins and Rustic Cabins are all open for these Getaways. They are warm and ready for you. You’ll definitely want to enjoy a latté or hot cider in our Coffee Shop, too. 




Cancellation Policy: The registration deposit is non-refundable ($100.00 for Family Getaways). Any fees above and beyond the deposits are refundable.
