That is what we were going to do until a friend gave us his airline miles.  I love fishing and our cabin, I was totally ok with it.  To be honest, fishing is some of the best time that we have together.  It is something that we both enjoy and we are totally alone.  No phones, no kids, no interuptions, just the two of us alone in the boat.  I love the conversations that we have.  And the best part – I usually catch the biggest fish – HELL YEAH!

I think it’d be so fun! You can spend the day together just the two of you (and hopefully a bucket full of fish!), and then spend the nights together at the cabin with a campfire and the stars. You can find out what the ‘restaurant’ offers, and also what the cabin has for cooking/fridge, etc, and plan to eat some meals out and have some romantic cooking nights in (just plan ahead on what groceries you’ll need). This actually sounds like a really sweet and secluded honeymoon, I think you can definitely enjoy it *and get a good tan if the fish aren’t biting 🙂 *

ETA: if the cabins are more roughing-it than romantic, maybe a compromise of 3-4 days at the cabin and a wrap up at a B&B for a couple of nights. More of a country/city honeymoon.

If you had seen our cabin you would see that it is really not nice (really it is an old trailer at the Ozarks – pray the roof caved in over the winter, fingers crossed).  It is the time that we spend there together that I love.  The first full day is spent bug bombing the place, vacuuming up bees, and cleaning the whole place top to bottom and then there is the scrubbing of the boat, just gross.  But the next week, it is all about us.  We grill out (hopefully what we caught and HE cleans), have a campfire, make sure there are plenty of cocktails, and spending time relaxing on the boat and fishing.  Sometimes we will head to the harbor bar for a few drinks and dancing.  I really look forward to our yearly vacation down there, it is probably some of our best memories.

@cyndistar3: What did you have in mind? 

I always think it’s nice when people do less “typical” honeymoon things, like when friends of mine went to Montreal instead of Hawaii for theirs.  The point of the honeymoon is to spend time together, a private cabin sounds pretty cute to me.  Won’t fishing be more fun than just lying on a beach somewhere? I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy it a lot more than you think you will.  🙂

@cyndistar3: I’d have him get the cabin info and find out about the different amenities. (fingers crossed you get a fire place) Then you guys can sort of map out different plans for your days there, whether it’s fishing for most of them and a day or two taking trips to local attractions, and also planning a nice dinner out somewhere and a few at the cabin (that don’t all rely on catching fish, lol). I think if you can find out a bit more on the cabin and the surrounding area it can be more romantic than ‘sex and fishing.’ Hehehe.
