* This is part of a series of special travel deals. Most families take at least one vacay during the year; we’ll help yours be one of them.

THE DESTINATION: Stowe Mountain Lodge, in Vermont

Instead of going south again this year, travel to the northeast and escape to Vermont! This luxury lodge, which was named as a top family hotel in North America, is located at the base of the Stowe resort. If you’re someone who gawks at covered bridges, sparkling lakes, woodlands and majestic peaks, then this is the place for you!

BOOK IT! Be a first-timer at their unique activities including glider rides, a rustic Vermont furniture making class, and outdoor Yoga (Stowega). There’s also a 36-hole golf course, guided hikes, and the town’s famous bike paths, plus a world-class spa. PS your dog is welcome too.

HERE’S THE SPECIAL! By booking your reservation through the Mountain Memories special offer, you can save each additional day you stay. For instance, save 20 percent for a two-night stay, 25 percent for a three-night stay and 30 percent when you stay four days or more.

Also, if you’re on Facebook you may be able to win the Mountain Memories Facebook Photo Contest, which is worth more than $10,000. Submit a photo on their Facebook page from one of your own remarkable travel memories and tell your friends and family to “like” it in order to vote for you. The photo with the most vote at the end of each week wins. Four lucky winners will then be entered into the final week’s grand-prize drawing. The photo with the most votes at the end of week five wins a grand prize including a five-day trip to Stowe Mountain Lodge/ Stowe Mountain Resort, Airline Tickets from JetBlue, and items from participating partners, such as Burton Snowboards, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Ferro Jewelers and more.
