Our group of eight ladies, all over 50 & former coworkers, plan a get-together in August. We live in New York, Virginia, North Carolina & Florida and are hoping for a central location to meet up. Looking for a getaway place for a "reunion" for a few days. Resorts are "in season" and too expensive. Can you recommend something that would fit the bill for us?
