The ultimate family vacation

Ever thought about a multi-generational vacation? Wondering what kind of a trip would appeal to everyone from Grandma/Grandpa down to the youngest grandchildren? Read on!

My clients just returned from a fantastic multi-generational trip that combined Seattle and Glacier National Park, and they sent me their candid feedback about how it all worked out:


Everyone called our trip out West the trip of a lifetime.  We loved Seattle and left without getting to do everything we wanted to do.  It is a great town for kids and they were real troopers walking just about everywhere we went.  We adored Montana.  Glacier is a spectacular park.  We hiked just about every day, took every boat ride in the park, rode the red bus to Logan’s Pass on the 4th of July and went sledding in the snow, went horseback riding, visited Waterton in Canada, and sat in front of roaring fires.  Glacier is definitely the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

Lake McDonald cabins were rustic but very well taken care of and the service was great.  Our only disappointment, and by no means did we let it affect our trip, was Glacier Park Lodge.  The grounds and the lobby were spectacular, however the rooms and the service were plain “sloppy”.

The car rental went very smoothly and we looked like a secret service convoy with our three Chevy Traverses always following each other.  They were a great size and had lots of space for cousins that wanted to ride together and all our gear.

The 5 children probably walked 75-100 miles in the 12 days and they were still smiling when we left on Sunday.  All our flights were on time and things went extremely smoothly.  I can’t believe we are back and it’s sad to look out the window and not see the Rockies.

You provided excellent guidance for us. I appreciated that you really had us think about what was most important to us when we were selecting the right cruise – and not to totally focus on what other people had to say. THANK YOU for helping to make this a memorable trip for our family! It really was a trip of a lifetime!

The level of service we experienced was out of this world (and we did NOT make it easy on Ann). We weren’t quite sure where we wanted to go, when we would be able to go, or what “vibe” we were going for. After asking us some key questions (what we liked, didn’t like, why, etc.) Ann helped us narrow down our trip details and planned the honeymoon of our dreams. She helped book some of our excursions, answered some emergency questions while abroad and was always available/willing to help. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be using anyone else for future travel planning – Ann is a rockstar!
