My fiancee and I think we want to do find a cabin in the mountains for our honeymoon, and neither of us are really sure where to start. The honeymoon will be May 20-26, and we’d prefer to spend under $2000 if possible. We’ve been blindly googling to try and find a destination, but I’d rather get suggestions from people who have done this before. Does anyone have any experience with mountain honeymoons? Are there any destinations in particular we should check out? Any we should avoid? Is there any general advice about planning a honeymoon in the mountains that you could give us? Thanks.
Edit: Also, I should probably mention we’d rather stay in the United States.

At that time of year you should be able to find great deals on mountain cabins and condos! I’ve been to Sun Valley, Bend Oregon and Schweitzer Idaho all in the off season and all are beautiful (though I wasn’t on my honeymoon). Ive never been there but Tahoe would probably be beautiful too (but Tahoe and Sun Valley are more upscale so they’re probably pricier.) Look for a smaller resort like Schweitzer in Idaho if you want to save $.

What do you want to do while you’re there? There are some amazing all inclusive dude ranches here in the US.

I can only suggest Colorado because that’s all I know. I used this website in the past with HUGE success:
I stayed in cabin #1, the “Colorado Cabin.” It was very romantic…totally secluded, you can’t see any other cabins from that area. It had a really nice hot tub on the back deck, too. I liked it a lot. If you’re wanting to go right after your wedding, there’s a lot to do in the summertime – hiking, rafting, tours of local towns, etc…but it would definetly be a more quiet honeymoon.

I love love lovee Gatlinburg, Tennessee! Definitely check out some places around there! It’s beautiful and there’s a lot of fun things to do!

We’ve stayed here a few times and enjoyed the time in the NC mountains.
It’s not too far from Asheville, if you wanted to go out for a nice dinner.

Mast Farm Inn, mastfarminn.com, in North Carolina.
Beautiful and would be lovely and green in May. They have gourmet meals served there too, and you can rent a fancy car for the day and cruise the moutain roads.
We stayed there for a family vacation, and I got to stay in the honeymoon suite, a cozy little cabin restored from like the 1850s, with a big tub in the living room and a great bed in the loft. I was alone, but I could totally see it as romantic.
Check it out.

We are going to Gatlinburg, TN. this is exactly where we will be staying, including the cabin we will be in…http://littlevalleymountainresort.com/unit.php?id=2235 We were in the area in October visiting my daughter and drove over to check it out, and it is so nice. Sweet Sensations is the newest cabin on the property as well. We are paying $579 for 4 nights in March, and we are staying 2 nights somewhere else in the area through Blue Green Resorts, otherwise we would stay the whole week here.

I third Gatlinburg. That’s where we’re going! I’m really excited. We’re getting a cabin for 3 nights, and it’s only gonna be like, $700. It’s winter, so May will be a little higher, but still really good.

It would be so much easier to respond to posts like this if you told us where you live. There’s no point in suggesting sites in Washington state if you live in Texas. It will take most of your budget just to get there.

@julies1949: I was just going to say this.
I would of course recommend Yosemite National Park as it by far one of the most gorgeous locations on the planet. Our family goes twice a year (summer and NYE weekend).
