Family-Friendly Lodge with Indoor Waterpark, Spa, and Outdoor Adventure Center

At Hope Lake Lodge and Indoor Waterpark, you can zoom down a three-story water slide, zipline over a canopy of evergreens, and ride an alpine coaster down a mountainside. There’s something to do every season at this resort; it keeps families entertained year-round with Cascades Indoor Waterpark, an outdoor adventure center, and, after the first heavy snowfall, shuttle service to Greek Peak Mountain Resort for skiing and snowboarding.

Hop on one of two tube slides and you’ll wind from inside the waterpark to the hotel itself, and then back in the park again before being deposited in a crystal-clear pool. There’s also a wave pool that undulates with 67,000 gallons of water. In the kiddie section, Little Bear Falls, tykes can splish-splash on a swing set or pint-size waterslide. Outside, you can unwind in a heated pool and a pair of hot tubs. Or, feel free to head to the Waterfalls Spa, which has a menu featuring naturally infused hydrotherapy and Vichy treatments.

The resort resembles an alpine lodge with its thick wooden timbers and a crackling, 40-foot-tall stone fireplace. The suites, too, are trimmed with knotted wood accents. Amid the rustic decor, each included suite has all the comforts of home, including a full kitchen and a flat-screen TV. In the morning, visit the Acorn Grill for farm-fresh eggs, gooey cinnamon rolls, and other breakfast fare.

This deal includes water-park passes, but additional activities may cost extra.

Finger Lakes, New York: Rolling Vineyards, Deep Gorges, and More Than 1,000 Waterfalls

Upstate New York's Finger Lakes region is known for its long, thin lakes and more than 1,000 waterfalls that cut through the area's famous rocky gorges. About 25 miles west of the resort lies Ithaca, which borders the longest of the Finger Lakes, Cayuga Lake, and is home to Ithaca Falls. At more than 100 feet high, the falls cascade down a terraced cliff that is fringed by colorful leaves in autumn. Closer to the hotel, you can hike and mountain bike through groves of hardwood trees at Tuller Hill State Forest.

The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail has more than a dozen wineries, many of which stay open into November. Apart from its beautiful scenery, Ithaca is known for being a college town, home to Ithaca College and Cornell University. And like many of the villages in Finger Lakes, Ithaca's easily walkable downtown region is a hodgepodge of bistros, boutiques, and taverns housed in historical buildings.
