Time to Spring Forward
Spring Break Getaways
Spring Break can bring March Madness with boredom and kids not mixing well! Whether your kids are in elementary school or university, there are plenty of amazing deals to be found –from transportation and activities to accommodations —and by planning ahead, you can save even more.
The Harrison Beach Hotel always has great offers going on, check out our specials page! Our Junior suites come with lake or mountain views, a kitchenette, king-size bed in a semi-private bedroom, and a queen-sized pull-out couch in the living room, accommodating up to four guests. This is perfect for the little ones. Or consider Harrison Beach’s executive suites that come with a king-size bed in a private bedroom, pull-out couch, jetted tub, and fireplace. See all of our accommodations here. Situated right in the heart of Harrison Village and directly across from Harrison Lake, it’s only a short walk to restaurants and shops. Be sure to take the kids to meet Harrison’s mascot… the legendary Sasquatch. Start with a visit to the Sasquatch Museum and be sure to grab a selfie! More fun stops include petting animals and sampling tasty bites on the Circle Farm Tour, hot springs pool soaks, and forest trail hikes. You can even bring your sweet furball!
