If you are willing to be flexible with location you can get great last minute deals with flight and hotel that could be cheaper than a local destination. I had a cousin do this and ended up in vegas for cheaper than a 4 hour drive and B&B.

Lancaster, PA has a lot of cozy B&Bs. And the Pocanoes, of course. Philly. Can you tell I’m in Pennsylvania? πŸ˜€

@mrsotg:  haha, It seems that’s where a lot of the people from my area go for honeymoons πŸ™‚ My mom and stepdad even went there when they got married.  I’ve never been there before, though – what did you think of it when you went?

@mrsotg:  If you are flexible, seriously, wait till the week before. Youll get the best package deals that way.

The Outer Banks! Depending on when in the fall you’re going it might still be warm enough to swim. The northern park of the banks only takes about 5 hours from Southern Maryland to get to

My Fiance (who is from MD) suggests Cape May, NJ or the mountain area of West Virginia. Snowshoe Mountain Resort is a popular destination, but he’s never been and can’t tell you if it’s honeymoon-worthy or not.

We went to the Poconos for a wedding a couple of years ago and it seems like a good honeymoon spot. My friend sent me a link to this resort earlier this year. It could either be awesome or ridiculous, depending on how you look at it. http://www.covepoconoresorts.com/suites/theromantowers.aspx I mean, where else can you find a Champagne Glass Whirlpool Bath-for-two? πŸ™‚

Also, not sure if Asheville is too far of a drive, but that whole area of North Carolina is beautiful.

Ooh and good call to the PP who suggested the Outer Banks! The beaches are beautiful and not overly developed.

If you’re talking October, nothing would beat the fall colors in Shenandoah park! We stayed at this lovely B&B: Woodward House on Manor Grade. Really sweet owners. Amazing food. And all you can drink wine/beer in the evenings for free. But if you want farther away, OBX would also be lovely. And central or Northeast PA also has its gems.

@mrsotg:  hahaha, You may have stayed at the hotel I work at.  We’re right off of Route 61 in Pottsville, a two block walk from Yuengling. Unless you stayed at The Country Inn and Suites off of Route 81 in Frackville.  I don’t think we have a view πŸ˜€

What’s your budget?  I just checked travelocity and you can do 7 days in the Virgin Islands for 2 people for $1400, flight and hotel, jul 17-24.  Sorry I don’t have driving recommendations, just throwing that out there.

Having lived in North Carolina for 10 years, I’m going to second (or third) either the Outer Banks or Asheville. Both are beautiful for different reasons.

I’ve rented a house through Sun Realty and had a good experience. When my hubby and I were married in Asheville we stayed in one of these rentals: http://www.ashevilleswisschalets.com/

Other options might be Wiliamsburg Va, Charleston SC or if you are up for a really long drive Savannah Ga.
