Brandon aka Gumby aka The-Guy-I'm-Involved-With-in-Arkansas is coming up to visit in July, and we were thinking of taking off somewhere local-ish for a few days as part of that visit, to just "get away." Berkshires, The Vinyard, Maine, you know, something like that. Anyways, I've not done that sort of vacationing before. I'll be honest, we'll probably be spending a lot of time in our room, so there doesn't have to be a lot to do, though I'd like some nummy food options, and it should be somewhere pretty. I don't hike or anything like that, but being able to wonder into nature a little bit, be it beach or forest or a lake or something would be nice. Anyone have suggestions? B&B or Hotel? Thoughts? Specific places you LOVE?

We'd be looking probably doing Wed, Thur, Friday nights, middle/end of July. Back to the city Sat 'cause he'll be going home Sunday. He'll be in the city with me for a few days before then.

I look forward to your suggestions!

Ditto what everyone said.

Summer is 'The Season' for the Cape, and The Vineyard; getting to the vineyard will be expensive (less and issue with the cape), you'll have neighbors in the next room no matter where you go, and room rates and food rates go up. The seafood will be killer, but that's about it.

The North-east MA coast, NH coast or Maine coasts would be lower population, although still popular if you go touristy. You could head up to the Maratime provinces, but that's a bit of a hike.

I'd go with the rest and say the Berkshires sounds good. You'll run into some snowbirds, and other vacationers, but it should be less.

Another option would be renting a cabin in the woods in NH or Vermont, often on a lake side, which is a common retreat my parent's did when I was young.
