I notice you haven't received any replies yet so I will start with some general observations rather than specifics. I was in Stresa early June 2011 for 3 nights. We have no kids but I am sure that the generally flat walking around the lake area will make things easy going. The ferry rides to Isola Bella etc should be some entertainment although I didn't see anything especially aimed at kids. The funicular from Stresa has big carriages that should not pose problems for kids. As an Aussie food in Stresa seemed pretty cheap & the kids will find plenty of icecream/gelato shops!
Guess it also depends on how old the kids are.
