Most romantic getaway
Despite its rustic name, Migis Lodge, in South Casco, Maine (207-655-4524), could hardly be cushier. In September, when kids go back to school, the 120-acre property with 4,000 feet of Sebago Lake frontage is almost exclusively given over to couples seeking to escape. There are activities such as sailing, canoeing, and tennis, as well as miles of easy walks and hikes with leaves falling all around. Dining is a rather formal affair; afterward, you’ll return to find the stone hearth of your cabin all prepared for a fire. Fall prices for couples start at $215 per person per day and include all meals and most activities.
