One getaway I would highly recommend is a weekend visit to a state park! I live in Indiana, and you can reserve a cabin for $25 to $35 per night. The cabins are furnished, have electricity, private bathroom and shower, and kitchen. You bring your own linens, dishes, etc. There is no television, which I personally felt was an advantage. We brought cards and board games for entertainment, but you could bring a TV if you really needed one. We stayed for a long weekend and went hiking, explored a cave and a waterfall, went horseback riding and swimming. It was wonderful!
Check with your state's Department of Natural Resources or your local Chamber of Commerce or Parks Department for information in your area.

This is a picture taken at Berkeley Springs State Park, while on a vacation with several ladies in my family. We have been on two ladies-only vacations. Berkeley Springs was a nice place for us to go. Many people believe that the spring water flowing through the park has minerals in it that are helpful with health problems.
We sat in the tub George Washington bathed in. Several presidents have enjoyed the springs, and stayed in the inn. The picture of the hotel is the Berkeley Springs Inn where the presidents also stayed, and ate. It's a great place to visit, with lots of history.
