What kind of activities are you looking at doing?

Historical? You could go to Fredericksburg, and stay at a bed and breakfast and do the battlefields, there are a few in the area, and visit Ferry Farms (George Washington’s birthplace).

Outdoorsy? Go up somewhere on the Mountains, travel the Appalachian trail/ drive Skyline trive.  You could hike, visit some of the caverns, stay at one of the resorts up there.

 

Those are two quick things off the top of my head…

Stay at a B&B in VA wine country! Then do winery tours, horseback, etc. That would be AMAZING during the fall!

My venue, Stone Manor Vineyard & Orchard, is one of the most stunning B&B’s I’ve ever seen. Reasonably priced, and the Honeymoon suite is 1200 square feet!

I live in Fredericksburg, and I wouldn’t recommend coming here for a mini-moon unless you really like history and antiquing… there isn’t much else to do.  I agree that Charlottesville would be a great place to go.  There are a ton of great wineries around and great restaurants in town.

@kcr526:  Have you thought about Northern VA? Old Town Alexandria is really cute and Arlington is really fun. During the day you have DC, can take a river cruise, go to national harbor, and watch a cheap baseball game. Plus, there are all tge free museums and the free zoo!

@kcr526:  To sell you more on the place, the innkeepers cook a six-course gourmet breakfast each morning. And the shower has ten nozzles. Not kidding.

We got engaged on a trip to the Mark Addy Inn outside of Charlottesville. I would definitely recommend a visit to the area…Tons of wineries and beer breweries, all very close to the inn and many of them serve really tasty food. We had so much fun visiting them and will definitely be making a trip back sometime soon. (The inn itself wasn’t anything particularly special…We enjoyed our stay but mostly appreciated how close it was to wineries and breweries.)

I have never been my self. But I live in Northern Virginia and I hear people rave about the Homestead in Hot Springs, VA. It is a large property with a wonderful spa. There are tons of nature things to do in the area. Perfect for a quiet weekend.

@kcr526:  hello again fellow VB bride! Haha. We are actually going up to Shenandoah for our honeymoon. We rented a 3 bdrm log cabin (we obviously didn’t need one that big but it’s so nice) that’s on a river. They provide kayaks and canoes and it even has a little fire pit. The cabin also has a great hot tub. We plan to go hiking, visit wineries (it’s peak season in October!), vist the caverns, horseback riding in the Valley, zip lining, visit Monticello, and enjoy each other’s company.
