My fiance and I are both rather simple and easy-going. We like to be inside cuddling together over doing exotic activities. For our honeymoon, we were thinking of doing a mountain retreat or a bed-and-breakfast. Something quiet, peaceful, cold, and beautiful.
I just wanted to know what you have done on your honeymoon, especially if you took a mountain retreat or had a rather relaxing honeymoon.
We both would be happy cuddled up in bed with hot chocolate, but this IS our honeymoon, after all. I would like to do something we don’t typically do, but I can’t think of too much besides hiking, fancy dinners, or horseback rides. A

We have NOTHING planned. We’re doing a beach honeymoon. And we’ll lounge, swim, lounge, swim, EAT :)…and you know 😉

We went to France (stayed in a very small town, we wanted quaint and relaxing), so we toured castles by day, then went out to dinner in the evenings, and brought a bottle of wine back to the room to enjoy while we cuddled at night. Many of the castles had awesome outdoor space to wander, so we just got to walk around, enjoying the view & each others’ company. Could you go somewhere with historical sites to visit during the day?

We did a road trip down to Florida, and rented a house there on homeaway. It was very relaxing, without us going out partying. The house that we rented had a private screened in pool and hot tub, so we spent most of the time at the house.
If you have your heart set on mountains, I have to tell you that on the way back we stopped at this awesome town: Boone, North Carolina. Its along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and its soooooo beautiful!

We’re going to Pigeon Forge, TN for a week! We rented a cabin from patriotgetaways.com and we are soooo excited!! We have no actual plans and will take each day as it goes. If we wake up and feel like going somewhere then we will and if we don’t we will relax in our cabin 🙂
We got a decent price…it was buy 5 nights and get 2 for free. I totally suggest checking them out! I will update once we actually get back from our honeymoon and let you know how it was :

Great ideas! And makes me feel better about just wanting to stay inside most of the time. 😉
I’m glad you guys posted! I think it’ll be best to not plan it, just take one day at a time-probably is MUCH more relaxing than frantically doing everything you had on the list.
And oh! Thank you both for giving me ideas!! I have been looking all over the place for a decent honeymoon spot, and so many that seem to be nice, end up with horrible reviews! I have heard good things about the Blue Ridge Parkway, though. Those definitely seem worthy of being looked into. 🙂
And I definitely want to hear how that went! I hope you two have a wonderful time!!

I do like the idea of historical sites, too. I thought of possibly going to New England since they have so much history there!

We went to Hawaii and did some exploring, and enjoyed the beach etc. We don’t like bed and breakfasts only because we want our privacy, it is your honeymoon…

@LovinChrist18: My husband and I went on a road trip to Canada. We hiked nine consecutive days in a row, including the wedding day. The hikes took up a good portion of the day usually 5+ hours.
Hiking is something we do even at home, but there were so many new mountain ranges and parks to explore.
I did however, want to go to this really nice hot springs resort, but it didn’t work out. Other than that, we ate out every night. We did not shop. I hate shopping.
I’m not a B&B fan either. I feel like I’m staying at someone’s mom’s house.
I will say, don’t plan every day. I’m a planner by nature, but I had to be talked into not booking every night’s room. We wanted the freedom to explore and stay places longer if we wanted. I did my research on the areas, but I did not plan anything.
