This resort tucked along the Root River near Whalan caters to family reunions with new cabins built with up to six bedrooms and six baths. The best asset, though, is plenty of space to play with playgrounds, volleyball and basketball courts, the river for fishing, paddling and floating, and easy access to the Root River Trail for bike rides into town. 905 Bench St., Whalan; 1-507-467-9000;
