What do kids like about the Winthrop Estate?
The tree swing, the ping pong table, the foosball table, our games and puzzles upstairs in the game room, the flat screen TV in the media room, lawn games (we have a frisbee, Nerf football, lawn croquet set, soccer ball, etc.) and the walking trails into the woods just out the back porch that lead to a stream (endless entertainment) and the marsh. Kids like capturing the Japanese beetles that love our cutting garden. They also like going into the organic vegetable garden to snack on whatever is growing at the time (last year they picked and immediately ate things like pole beans, snap peas, basil leaves, broccoli flowers [I didn't know kids liked raw broccoli until I saw that], parsley and lettuces). Kids also enjoy the chess/checkers table and playing the piano. Once the sun sets, kids will certainly ask their parents to head to the fire pit on the lawn for a dessert of S'mores.
Parents will enjoy putting their kids to sleep and then retuning to their friends in the social rooms while still being in ear shot of the kids. Every generation finds many things to love about gathering at Winthrop Estate for some family time. Thanksgiving through New Year's Day are ideal times to make Winthrop Estate your family's private vacation getaway.
