Days are spent on the lake, in the woods, and on the clay tennis courts.

There are also organized kids' activities. Guests take their meals in two dining halls near the lake. New families hoping to break in should jump at any available week offered—most likely early or very late summer. That doesn't mean you can't let your juiced four-year-old run wild on the grounds, however.

The resort's large outdoor pool, its fleet of small boats and mountain bikes, and its hayrides, golf and tennis clinics, and supervised kids' camps keep children happily on the go—and, one prays, compliant enough at day's end to sit through the formal dinners served in the inn's pretty water-view dining room.

If your kids can't quite rise to the sports coat—and—party dress routine, there are casual options—including weekly beachside lobster bakes. Smallish rooms in the main inn are best suited for couples; families can choose from one- to three-bedroom cottages, many with private decks, screened porches, lake views, and working fireplaces.

This just-cheery-enough room Tyrolean-style hotel—with its painted armoires, fluffy eiderdowns, and overflowing window boxes—is set on 2, glorious acres above the Nebraska Valley. Founded by the von Trapp family of The Sound of Music fame in —and rebuilt after a fire in —the inn has miles of walking trails that, in winter, make up the best Nordic ski center in the East.

The slopes of Stowe's Mount Mansfield, one of New England's premier ski resorts, are just a few miles away. Kids will relish their freedom to roam—to pet the baby animals in the barn, shoot hoops, and bike the tree-canopied dirt road that bisects the property.

A hillside granite-edged swimming pool compensates for its size with a waterfall and far-off views. In winter, there's sledding and ice-skating on a lit-up rink. Lodging including several rooms with bunk beds is in the old farmhouse, carriage house, or school house, or in a newer five-suite building.

Brawny 's Civilian Conservation Corps—built log pavilions provide shelter for waterfront picnics. Feel the peace, then feel your wallet—a reminder that you're just seven miles away from the outlet shops Armani, Polo Ralph Lauren, J. Crew of Manchester, Vermont.

And thanks to the eight huts maintained by the Appalachian Mountain Club that provide lodging—with bedding—and meals, you won't have to overload backpacks with gear. Most huts are open May through September; a few welcome hearty visitors year-round.

Some of the most family-accessible are in New Hampshire. Its octagonal main lodge overlooks a shallow, swimmable glacial tarn and affords fine views of Kinsman Ridge; two nearby buildings sleep 46 people in a series of small bunk rooms.

Hearty meals are prepared by the hut "crew"—usually affable, hearty college students who pack in all the hut's supplies and also serve, quite handily, as naturalists on round-the-lake family walks, and entertainers during impromptu evening productions. Other good choices with kids: The state boundary is the low water mark on the Vermont shore, so the river is actually in New Hampshire. Along the way, you'll pass under the Cornish-Windsor covered bridge—the nation's longest—and float by some of the states' most fertile farmlands.

There are also wonderful bike paths in Stowe and Burlington. Bike Vermont phone TK , is one of several outfitters that offer multi-day inn-to-inn tours throughout the state for experienced riders over the age of For the off-road—inclined, there are seemingly endless mountain biking trails and dirt roads to explore. Route , Conway to Lincoln Leave the moccasin shops and mini-marts of Conway behind and wend your way into the primeval wilderness of the White Mountain National Forest.

The serpentine mile-long "Kanc" feels enough like a roller coaster to keep the back seat interested; ditto the strong possibility of seeing moose. Plan to stop at one of several roadside Swift River swimming holes—perhaps the buffed boulders and cold pools of Lower Falls, a little less than seven miles from the Route 16 junction in Conway.

To have about as impressive an outing as you can for an hour's investment, explore the nearby Flume off Rte. Back on the road, you'll wind your way up to the crest of the Middlebury Gap elevation 2, feet , then plunge down through deep forest to emerge at the rambling Bread Loaf campus, the site of Middlebury's famed summer writers' conference.

Just beyond Bread Loaf, look for the Robert Frost Wayside Picnic Area and Interpretive Trail, a lovely mile-long loop with information about the poet and excerpts from his poems posted along the way. If the literary references are lost on your children, tell them to keep a lookout for wild blueberries in July and August and beavers in the pond.

From here, continue driving down to the hamlet of Ripton. Then, at the junction of Route 7, head north to the handsome shop-and-gallery-filled college town of Middlebury. Walk over the Main Street bridge for a giddy-making view of the waterfall on Otter Creek—a scene that's about as Vermont as you can get. The mysterious year old rock formation with chambers and passageways, put here in the middle of southern New Hampshire by who knows who, is just the kind of weirdness that will appeal to a mini-van full of boys.

As the hour-long self-guided tour reveals, it's also the oldest-known megalithic site in North America. Local militia marched and trained for the Revolutionary and Civil wars on the field beside the Matthew Harvey homestead, just one of the collection of historic buildings on this little-known acre hilltop museum and farm planted and maintained wonderfully by volunteers.

It's free to the public except during annual events such as Farm Days, held in late August, which transforms the farm into an encampment and muster with participants in period dress. Here's an opportunity for kids to try everything from feltmaking to walking on stilts. Don't judge this theme park by its rather lame-looking storybook-cutout entrance gates and discouragingly packed parking lot.

This is a terrific place, especially for the under set. On 30 well-laid out and gardened acres, there are dozens of rides and attractions, not the least impressive of which is a foot octopus "sprayground" for cooling off, a pumpkin coach ride to Cinderella's castle, and a nifty antique German carousel on which the horses rock rather than rise as they go round.

Clanging video games, tattoo parlors, bumper cars, go-carts, T-shirt shops, water slides, and crowds of giddy children with sticky fingers. It travels a two and a half-hour, mile route around the lake twice daily. VERMONT Church Street Marketplace, Burlington, Vermont Proof that there is more to Vermont fashion than Polarfleece and clogs, this thriving four-block-long pedestrian promenade in Vermont's largest population 32, city, hums with outdoor cafes, art galleries, street performers, a plethora of boutiques—and the hippest-looking people in the state, thanks partly to the presence of the University of Vermont, just up the hill.

Stop into Lake Champlain Chocolates to sample fudge made on teh premises; or head to their nearby factory 7 Pine St.

You'll see the velvety green meadows, the grand brick mansion-turned-swanky-inn once owned by William Seward Webb and Lila Vanderbilt Webb, and the cavernous five-story barns that are now part of a non-profit experimental farm, cheese-making operation, and educational center. Your kids, however, will only have eyes for the beyond-cute miniature donkey named Penelope at the children's barnyard along with kids, lambs, and piglets who they can pet—and fantasize about taking home to join the family cat.

Hop on the hay wagon at the visitors center for a ride to the barnyard. Its 16 rooms, in three elegantly-restored Federal era buildings, are made all the more attractive by an exceptional dining room, walking and cross-country skiing trails, and outdoor pool. COM , set on a small, bean-shaped lake just north of the village, to mountain bike, run, or cross-country ski—on guided tours or independantly—the miles upon miles of of unpaved farm roads and forested trails surround this former boarding school.

There are also weekly sculling and canoeing summer camps. Families overnight in former dorm rooms, most with shared bathrooms, or in one of three lakefront housekeeping cottages.

STOWE, Vermont Sure, its been cute-ified by the presence of one of the state's major downhill ski resorts, but downtown Stowe, with its needle-steepled white church and 19th-century storefronts remains deeply appealing. HANOVER, New Hampshire The ultimate college town, with Dartmouth's handsome 18th-century buildings extending from the campus green to awninged shops lining main street—plus enough artsy free-thinkers to be an honorary member of Vermont.

The high-ceilinged building is filled with interactive exhibits—fog makers, bubble tubs, x-ray machines and the like. Thoughtfully laid-out interpretive trails crisscross the property and terminate in a new outdoor science park-cum-playground behind the museum.

JACKSON, New Hampshire Reached via a red, one-lane covered bridge, Jackson has managed to remain blissfully out of the loop, though it was once the fashionable vacation spot among 19th-century upper class New Englanders who came to stay in one of the many large hotels in town. Only two of them have survived: These days, people come to escape the North Conway crush, hike the nearby Pinkham Notch area, take a dip in the Jackson Falls swimming hole in the Wildcat River near the village, and eat a memorable meal at the cozy Wildcat Tavern.

Its orderly white 18th and 19th century houses surround a village green where weekly band concerts are held on summer Sundays. Stop in at L. Vibrant, historic and surprisingly trendy, this seacoast city welcomes summer by closing its streets to traffic and stuffing them with crafts and food booths, entertainment on several stages and throngs of celebrants. A huge public clambake kicks off the festivities the night before.
