Summer 2013 family vacation

Hi, I am in search of a place for a family get together that is about half way in between Syracuse, NY and Daytona Beach, FL. Virginia seems like a good choice. We are looking for something in the mountains, on or very near a lake. A river would also work if it is swimmable or offers rafting. We would like to rent a cottage or 2 for 18 to 20 people. Also enjoy touristy areas with shopping, boating and hiking. I would love some suggestions.

Smith Mountain Lake could be something to look into.

Hungry Mother park has cabins and family lodges for rent. The views are breathtaking there and there is plenty to do in the area. The cabin I stayed in a few years back was a little rustic but did have air conditioning and modern plumbing.

Your may want to check Massanutten (massresort.com). About 15 - 20 minutes east of Harrisonburg, Va. off of US 33. It is a Timeshare Community that offers you what you may be looking for. They have 4 bedroom units that sleep up to 12. Indoor swimming pools. Indoor water park ( similar to Great Wolf lodges but charge a seperate admissiion), Golf, Restaurnat, A couple of lakes.ect. Another location to look at is Yogi Bears Jellystone Park (campluray.com) outside of Luray, VA. A combination of their camping cabins may fit your needs

Both are located in the m0untains and close to interesting places to visit.
