If the shopping malls start stocking Christmas wreaths, get into the fall foliage – leaf peeking – autumn harvest spirit with this family beach vacation deal at the Cape Codder Resort in Massachusetts. Beach vacation?
Yes, okay, it's off season. But it's still a beach and a fun and restful family vacation getaway for those on a budget.
Fun family amenities at the Cape Codder include the resort’s invigorating spa treatments, live music on weekends, and a gift shop for souvenirs and trinkets. Best of all for families who are huddled inside during the school week… Their fun waterpark, under cover, with an indoor wave pool and slides, waterfalls, whirlpools, saunas and everything a kid (or parent) could dream of.
There's also a heated outdoor pool. Perfect for a chilly Cape Cod weekend.
For other treats at the resort, the Hearth ‘n Kettle and Grand Cru Wine Bar & Grill restaurants provide a cozy family atmosphere and hearty eats for everyone.
Available now through November 24, 2012, based on availability — or the actual cranberry harvest season — the Cape Codder Resort & Spa offers the Cranberry Harvest Package. (This is cranberry bog territory.)
For a $209 for the first night, your family of four can book a Cape Codder room with two queen beds, and use the indoor waterpark, pool, spa and enjoy the area's sights.
As part of the offer, you will receive a $40 credit for a soothing treatment or spa products from their on-site spa, or keepsakes from the gift shop — a good offer if you want to get in some early holiday shopping.
In addition, as part of this offer, families will receive a
