 Unpack & Unwind

Whether you're heading this way for a winter family vacation or a Valentine's Day retreat, the Burke Area boasts all sorts of lodging choices from a slopeside hotel to country inns to vacation homes large enough to accommodate everyone including the family dog.

There's room for everyone at the spacious Ring Finger Ranch which offers 4 bedrooms and 2 living rooms.  Bring all your gear, too, since the house is just a quick jaunt to Kingdom Trails and Burke Mountain plus there is direct snowmobile trail access from the property.

Located in the heart of the Kingdom Trails Nordic Network, The Wildflower Inn offers a family friendly atmosphere with plenty to do just out the front door from fat-biking to snowshoeing to a cross country ski trek. There's even an outdoor skating rink and sledding hill!  Rooms, 2 or 3 room suites, and a cottage are available.  Some rooms are even dog friendly.

Planning to hit the slopes and pretty much live in your ski boots?  Check out the Burke Mountain Hotel with options ranging from studios with king beds, kitchenettes, and media hubs to 3 bedroom suites with a full kitchen, fireplace, and three tv's.

Burke Vacation Rentals manages over 50 properties on and off the mountain.  Whether you want a cozy, dog friendly chalet, a house with a chef's style kitchen, or a slopeside townhouse, they've got something to match your vacation preference.

  Deal of the Month

Call it a hidden gem or a local treasure - the Lyndon Outing Club offers affordable, family friendly skiing starting at just $10 for kids and $15 for high schoolers and adults.  The all volunteer club is one of the only ski areas left with a functioning rope tow and offers the only night skiing in the area.  Definitely check out the FREE Ski/Ride Days sponsored by Blue Cross/Blue Shield!

 
School Vacations and Romantic Outings!

February already?  It's time to pack up the kids and gear and venture to Burke.  There are all sorts of ways to keep 'em busy up here and take them out on some new adventures.

Wanna try fat-biking, but don't have a bike or know the trails?  Kingdom Cycling & Experiences offers guided tours perfect for the beginning winter rider or a family group. 

Wanna go snowmobiling, but don't have a sled or any experience?  The safest and most affordable way to try out snowmobiling is via a guided tour with the pros at NEK Adventures.  

Wanna try skiing or just get a refresher course?  Check out the Burke Snow Sports School offering day lessons for all ages.

After exploring the outdoors, head over to Juniper's Restaurant for family friendly dining and lots of menu choices including gluten free options.  From Burgers to Sweet Potato Gnocchi to Heirloom Pork Schnitzel, there's something for everyone.
