Am looking for a place for a weekend family reunion for about 35-40 people (about 10 families) across the age specturm from 87 year old matriach to her 12 greatchildren with many of the children under 6 years of age. The majority of families are from the massachusetts area but several families will come in from across the east coast. Location needs to be a reasonable drive from Boston (we are hoping to keep it 2 hours but would consider 3 hours).
We are looking for a place where we could all relax and catch up on things while letting kids play outdoors. A location with swimming, (lake or ocean a plus). Plus,tThings to keep 3 pre-teens happy. Lodging space that allows some privacy for families for sleeping (suites setup, etc) plus some regulat hotel-type space is fine. A place to have a picnic-cook-out lunch on a sunday is a plus.
Need modern amenities (not campgrounds or too rustic). Some people may choose to stay a few days longer thus a family vacation location is important.
A place that has a combination of lodge facilities and at least one 3-bedroom set-up with cooking availability is a nice-to-have but not need-to-have.
We are looking at the week-end of June 26-28, 2010.
