If you head inland on the way back you could stay around Shenandoah NP. Theres waterfalls, great walks and views, scenic drives. I dont know any specific places to stay but I imagine cosying up in a private cabin. Theres also the wineries and civil war history. On the way up there you could stop in a historic town like Williamsburg or Fredericksburg.

Welcome

I haven’t been to all these locations personally, but I’ve heard wonderful things about each one of them. They are part of the “Distinctive Inns of New England” group.

Also this place is just gorgeous.

I’m a total bias sucker for B&Bs though. They just seem much more cozy and romantic to me than a hotel.

princessbeec :  Ah okay. Wasn’t sure what part of PA you were in. I think PPs suggestion of Williamsburg is a great one based on your travel route.

Lewes Beach, DE!  Beautiful little beach town nestled in between a few bigger ones.  You are surrounded by water as you are right between the bay and the ocean.  Tons of charming restaurants, bars etc and several really cute hotels/inns.  I reccomend this spot : http://www.theinnatcanalsquare.com/

though it can get pretty pricey in the summer season.   Seriosuly, many great restaurants too!

oo!  Also check out Berlin, MD!  Voted America’s coolest small town!  It’s there town where Runaway Bride was filmed…it’s about 20 minutes outside of Ocean City, MD.  This one doesn’t scream “romantic” to me as much as Lewes but it is still a cool little town with lots to do in town and the surrounding areas.

princessbeec :  aha ok!  I grew up living between pretty much all of the coastal towns in DE/MD and Lewes is my favorite! We don’t live there any more but a few years ago my husband and I did a romantic getaway in October at the Inn on Canal Square…it was perfect!

Have you considered Cape May?  There are all of the typical attractions: antiques, victorian architecture, etc, but I have also really been liking some of their alternative attractions.  Cape May Winery is great as is Willow Creek Winery.  Also, there are some great happy hour places/casual restaurants on Beach Ave.  There’s plenty of rental options too so you are bound to find something there to suit your style.  Also, since you are close to the other Jersey shore towns you could take a trip out to some of their attractions as well.

princessbeec :  I love Williamsburg!  My suggestion would be Charleston or Savannah if you were ok with driving further south, but if you’re heading back up north, I agree with PP suggestion of Williamsburg.  Annapolis is really cute too!

We just rented a “cabin” (it was really a house, but had the cabin feel) in Luray, VA, for the new year. We stayed with friends but I think it’d be a good romantic getaway. I could PM you the cabin we rented if you’re interested.

Otherwise I’d second Williamsburg! My husband and I went for Valentine’s Day one year and it actually ended up being quite the romantic vacation. If you go you HAVE to go to the Italian restaurant that’s #1 on Tripadvisor. I was a bit wary because it’s in a strip mall but I still rave about it as one of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been to!

Cape May, NY- it’s at the very tip on the NJ Shore Points. A gorgeous little town with Victorian B&B’s right on the beach. 

It’s quiet and laid-back, but there’s the Rock’-n’Roll craziness of Wildwood and the neon rides of Seaside Heights if you want to live it up.
