Red Jacket Mountain View Resort
A massive water park anchors family vacations at this year-round mountain resort.
Views at this resort unfurl across the Saco River Valley and Moat Mountain Range, a setting that is as relaxing as the full-service spa on-site. A lounge offers live entertainment, and Champney's restaurant serves classic New England cuisine. But make no mistake about it: This is a family resort. The 24-acre property boasts a 40,000-square-foot indoor water park, bonfires, movie nights, sack races, magicians and, well, you get the idea. Guest rooms are casual, and range from standard rooms to two-bedroom townhomes and four-bedroom presidential homes, which are popular for multi-generational family vacations. Amenities include all the basics (coffee makers, fridges, etc.), and most rooms come with private balconies or patios. Flexible event space can host up to 400 guests.
