In the end of the day, only you know what your staff and office environment are like, so if you think it's something they like then go for it!
Personally I would be much more inclined to give up a weekend day if I had the next day off!

Sounds like the perfect weekend away with friends but not colleagues sorry.
Could you just go with your family then invite them for the day and the evening then order them cabs home (if driving distance). Or could you hire two houses next to each other / up the road from each other and do the same thing, just have the get together at the house you're staying at?

I might just ask for their ideas for our party and then throw mine in and see how they respond , I know when we briefly mentioned xmas parties at last weeks meeting they all said they wanted seafood this year so that's what got me thinking about something different

Work xmas party - what do you think?
In all honesty I'd be pretty annoyed if DH went away for a weekend for a work Christmas party. But, I'm thinking of our personal situation and how often he works long hours plus out with brokers for nice meals so if he added a weekend away with colleagues I would think it was pretty over the top and inappropriate. I feel he is with them enough of his week and I've learned since having a baby that our free time is pretty precious. I think a nice meal and drinks at a restaurant they wouldn't normally go to is more than enough. I know DH looks forward to work Christmas meals (and broker meals) because it's usually a place we wouldn't go to, and he doesn't have to pay! Also, if you want to do something special, inviting their spouses to the Christmas party/meal if you don't normally would be a nice idea.
Eta: DH's work never invites spouses 😢

I think it sounds awesome if everyone gets on and by sounds of it you do.
Do you give Christmas bonus's? Maybe instead of spending extra like this you could spend extra on bonus's etc
I really hate work functions I don't feel they go long enough and get to show appreciation especially for big companies. For my partners old work I loved them. We used to do lawn bowls (sounds silly but it was so much fun. )
I wouldn't share a bed, and if kids are there I wouldn't feel relaxed to drink heaps. That's me personally. If you do continue on with it I would just get blow up mattress etc or maybe even different location. Have you searched air BnB

Bonuses, and a big party, and possibly the next day off work too! I think we've found the winner for world's best boss. I'm in the wrong industry.
Given that you have a mix of people with kids, and those without, and the kids ages vary too its going to be hard to host a function that's perfect for everyone.
Perhaps run a few of the ideas past your team and see what they think.

This honestly sounds amazing.
Are you hiring?

The office actually had a bare foot bowls team this year and played other local businesses and yes it was heaps of fun!
I'm thinking if they go for it then I'll just sort out to get an extra single bed in the queen rooms so they at least get their own bed
