Your mission: Find a summer getaway that meets a family's wildly divergent expectations. Impossible? Not at Wintergreen. Tucked amid an 11,000-acre nature preserve in the center of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains and bordered by national forest on one side and national park on the two others, the 5,000-acre resort feels like a private national park.

Add 45 holes of championship golf, 24 tennis courts, six pools, a lake, an equestrian center, rock climbing, fishing, kayaking, mountain biking and in-line skating, and you have a recipe for familial harmony. The finishing touches that will especially please parents: luxury accommodations, sumptuous dining, performing arts, and a spa/fitness center to pamper every whim. Wintergreen also offers daily Wild! Camps for kids and weeklong Outdoor Wilderness Leadership Schools (OWLS). Less adventuresome packages include Treasured Memories, Golf Til You Drop, Full Swing and Overhead Smash Tennis.

Do it all, or just spend your time relaxing. Either way, be sure to cap off your stay with Sunday brunch in the Copper Mine restaurant, where you can enjoy live chamber music, panoramic views of the Shenandoah Valley and the time to devour the entire Washington Post.

  • DON'T MISS The 18th annual Spring Wildflower Symposium, being held Mother's Day weekend.
