A Family-Friendly Summer at Barnsley Resort

May 06, 2019

As the days grow longer and warmer, and the end of the school year approaches, families across the South are pondering that all-important summertime question: Where shall we travel? Barnsley Resort is the quintessential family summer vacation spot for so many reasons. At our vast North Georgia resort, kids love to romp through the garden maze, and your teens will be thrilled to try their hand at disc golf, paintball, clay shooting, and horseback riding. For family-friendly lawn games, we have croquet, horseshoes, and ladder ball, plus our dedicated bocce ball courts. Activities on the water include kayaking, canoeing, and fishing, or opt to beat the heat with a refreshing dip in the pool that overlooks our world-class golf course. If you’re a golf enthusiast eager to refine your skills, we’d be happy to pair you with one of our professional instructors for a personalized lesson out on the green. Then, in the evenings, the whole family can gather together to roast s'mores over the fire pit (all s’mores supplies, including sticks, are provided each night of your stay). Barnsley also offers a variety of specialty travel packages to cater to guests’ particular interests. For especially active families, we recommend the Freedom to Explore, Aim High, and Stay & Play Packages. New parents and parents-to-be should check out our Oh Baby! Package, which includes luxurious accommodations, complimentary breakfast for two at Woodlands Grill, a $150 spa credit, and some very special gifts to help you care for the newest traveler in your family.
