Family Lodges from New York to Maine

I am looking for a family lodge anywhere from the Adirondacks to Maine that is on a lake and has many activities for children. American Plan meals are a must, as we are a group of 16. Does anyone have a suggestion?
Many thanks.

Migis Lodge in Maine, it has everything you're looking for, including a steep price.

Aimhi on Sebago is great for kids, and the price is more reasonable than Migis.

I am looking at Aimhi and think it is probably the one I want. I have looked at Timberlock in the Adirondacks and Tyler Place in Vermont...do you know them?

Thanks so much.

My favorite is Purity Springs Resort in New Hamphsire.

I have been to Timberlock -- it is nice enough, and in a spectacular location.
But compared to Purity Springs: more expensive; the activities are generally more appropriate for older kids than younger kids; the food is _much_ less impressive; the cabins are way more rustic.

I haven't been to Tyler place, but friends have. Compared to Purity Springs, it sounds more upscale (dress for dinner-style). The kids activities are way more organized, more like a day camp than playgrounds and individual activities to sign up for.

Our family spent 4 summers at the Tyler Place and loved it! We haven't been for a few years, but we met so many great people. It was the best of both worlds in that we had family time and time to pursue our own interests.

While we did clean up a bit for dinner, I would not say it was dressy. Hubby would wear a polo-type shirt and I might put on capris with a cute top and sandals, but I did not consider it a place to really dress up for dinner - it is quite laid back in style.

I would be happy to answer any specific questions you have about Tyler Place, but would definitely recommend it....what are the ages of the kids in your group?

Good Luck and happy travels!

We are looking at next year, so let's see...ages will be 16,15, two 14's, 10 and 8.

I have memories of great summers in northern Minnesota and would like to give my family something similar on the East Coast.

I'll look again at Tyler Place. Thanks.
