A throwback to the old Catskills-style all-inclusive resorts, Basin Harbor Club's
comprehensive kids' program includes games like capture-the-flag, kayak tours, a ropes course, and more. This means adults have more time to themselves -- all before the evening's family fun, like a dockside lobster bake. Rooms from $271. Basin Harbor Club, 4800 Basin Harbor Road, Vergennes, 802-475-2311, basin-harbor.com.
