Hit the road with your family this summer and head to enLiven at Green River in Arlington, Vermont. enLiven is a perfect escape for family travelers looking for a digital break and life at a slower pace. Complete with a yoga pavilion, 12 guestrooms, dining for 20 and plenty of common areas, enLiven is the perfect place for family reunions and vacation takeovers, and offers a chance to completely reconnect with family — distraction free.


enLiven features 3 acres of outdoor space offering various walking and biking trails, so don’t forget to pack lawn toys and bicycles. In the event you do forget, take a trip to Wayside Country Store, stocked with everything from Vermont maple syrup to cheddar cheese to a good summer book or fishing pole.


Families can spend the day tubing down the Battenkill River before enjoying a delicious dinner and spending the evening catching lightning bugs or cozying up by the fire with yummy, chocolatey s’mores. If the fire is too strong, relax on Adirondack chairs by the Green River and unwind by reminiscing about the day. Besides the outdoor activities, families can work with enLiven to bring a game show host for trivia, Family Feud or Jeopardy.


Make sure to check out pizza truck catering. Families receive all the fixings to make a fresh and delicious wood-fired pizza on site. After a delicious meal, take a family stroll to the Bridge at the Green and snap a family selfie at the historic bridge to help commemorate the stunning scenery and trip.
