What time of year are you thinking to have your honeymoon?  I just moved from West Virginia after living there for 6 years… I have a few ideas.  Here is their “tourism” website:

I live in west virginia now. Actually i’ve lived all over this state thanks to undergrad and grad school. There are some really beautiful parks here with plenty of things to do. Horseback riding, white water rafting, kayaking, trails, pools, lakes.

here’s the state park website

yeah–if you are going in the summer or early fall, I would definitely recommend trying white water rafting.  That’s a bigger thing in this state.  And I don’t know if you’re into this for a honeymoon: but there are some awesome campsites that you can find.  Maybe rent an RV?  That would be cheaper than the Bahamas and probably a ton of fun!

I grew up in WV and I will say that it’s the most beautiful state in the fall.

I went to school there, and totally agree, the parks are amazing for hiking and camping.  It’s such a pretty state.

If you are thinking about a more rustic vacation, I’d suggest Pipestem, WV.  It’s actually where my parents honeymooned.  The New River Gorge area also has some great White Water Rafting, if you’re into that.  If you’re going in the fall, somewhere near Martinsburg would be great and you could go apple picking. Warning: I’ve camped in WV in an RV in October and even with a heater it was FREEZING.  I’m a wimp, though.

If you’re looking for more things to do, I’d suggest one of WV’s resorts/spas.  They are still near recreational areas, but you can get a little pampering/work on your golf game/eat some awesome food.  Personally, I’m partial to the Greenbrier Resort and the Lewisburg area.  It’s a beautiful resort, but uber expensive.  If you decide you want to stay near Lewisburg (which is a beautiful quaint historic town with tons of great antique shops), I’d recommend the General Lewis Inn.  The state fair is held around there every year.  Two other great resorts with cabins/golf/other outdoorsy stuff: Stonewall Jackson Resort and Glade Springs.  Not sure if that’s what you were looking for, but I figured I’d give you a few different options from what others were giving :).

@ERnurse: Another area to check out would be Canaan Valley WV.  It has a lot of hiking, horse back riding.  If you were looking for someplace secluded this would be the place.  It is also cheaper than the Lewisburg area (which I love for first Friday!)  Downfall not much shopping, limited restaurant choices.  But like I said I found it to be much cheaper than alot of other areas.

@secondchances: Good call!  I forgot about Canaan…nearby, they have this awesome hippy burrito place with live music called the Purple Fiddle.  Amazing.
