No. Never heard of these and can't really figure out what they are.

Yes. There are many family friendly "resort type" places to vacation surrounded by nature, forests, lakes.

Unfortunately, May is a little early to enjoy them in the New England area. The Mountains and Coastal areas are still fairly chilly, and the lakes and ocean are quite cold. Though some of the places are open in May, it is a quieter time at the resorts, with fewer activities and very low occupancy (unless it's a particularly warm weekend).

At the very end of May, these places get a little more activity. The end of June is when they really get into their full summer activities.

If you just want a nice cabin surrounded by nature, knowing that it may be chilly (and definitely too cold for water- based activities), there are some places you could go, but it won't be a big social community until summer, and services will be limited.

Smugglers Notch is a family resort, check with them to see what kind of activities they have in May ... like Chris said, May is a bit early for summer activities.

Have you given up on Cape Cod? you could rent a condo in a place like the Village at Loon Mountain in the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Full family resort:


or the Vacation Village in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts:
