If you have kids who like animals, meet bliss: a family resort with daylong children's programs on a 160-acre farm overlooking Mt. Monadnock. The young ones can start at 9 am with milking the cows, then start collecting eggs and feeding the sheep, donkeys, cows, rabbits, horses, chickens, goats, and ducks. There are horseback and pony rides, hiking and hay rides in summer, and sledding and sleigh rides in winter. Head to a nearby lake for boating, waterskiing, and fishing.
Rates include most activities and three meals in a camplike dining hall. Rooms are comfortable, not fancy, and some have fireplaces.
