We live in Lancaster County, PA and have a family of 3. We like to travel and am always on a budget thus prefer to stay at cabins that have full kitchens as we prepare alot of meals ourselves. We would love recommendations on where to go with these accomodations in mind as well as places of local interest nearby that aren't too expensive. Because of our work schedules we can usually only get away for the weekend and don't like to drive more then 2 hours one way. We would love to visit the Poconos area but are not familiar with what's up there. Suggestions for a family w/out a camper on a budget?
I would recommend the Shadow Brook Campground in Cooperstown New York. Great, highly rated campground with great cabins and the Baseball Hall of Fame, Glimmerglass State Park on Lake Otsego and the Farmer's Museum are both nearby. About a 5 hour drive through some beautiful country from where you live.
