List: Posted: 04/22/11

The Midwest might prompt visions of rustic cabins beside a lazy lake, but there is plenty of luxury to be found.  Dozens of family resorts in the Midwest are ready to cater to families with kids of all ages. 


Consider the Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa in Illinois, which is one of the larger family resorts.  In fact, guests may need a map of the property to get around!  This jewel of family resorts offers plenty of activities, both indoors and out, as well as hot air balloon rides.

The Crow Wing Crest Lodge in Minnesota is one of the few family resorts in the Midwest that can offer two hundred feet of sandy beach.  The fishing is great, and kids will enjoy the water sports.  There are also spa services for the adults. 

The Midwest has a history of grand and gracious family resorts, such as the Blue Harbor Resort and Conference Center on the Lake Michigan shore in Wisconsin.  This enormous property is prepared to entertain kids and pamper adults, and you might get a sense of the past with the turrets and gables.

The Lodge of Four Seasons caters directly to kids, and it's one of those family resorts that has been around for so long that it's suddenly cool again.  Located on the Lake of the Ozarks, this favorite of family resorts has an acclaimed spa, water sports, and a great restaurant with a Rat Pack vibe.  As far as family resorts go, it doesn't get cooler than this.

Kids will love you for choosing the Sawmill Creek Resort on the shores of Lake Erie.  With Cedar Point just moments away, this is the king of family resorts.  After a fun-filled day at the park, you can enjoy golf or one of the shops in the converted barn.  It's classy and fun, rolled into one of the greatest family resorts you'll find.
