I want to spend a weekend in a cabin within 3 hours of Washington DC with my girlfriend in March. I need something private with a hot tub and a fireplace and being a student, my budget isn't very high. Any recommendations?

I will be proposing to my girlfriend next month and want to spend the time with her in a vacation cabin within 3 hours of Washington DC. We will only be spending 2 nights there (Thursday and Friday) as I have leave on Saturday morning for a project.
The cabin can be a small 1 Bedroom/Bathroom one but should preferably have a hot tub and a fireplace as my girlfriend loves these amenities and there should also be cell-phone reception in the area. Neither of us are the adventurous types and won't be engaging in any sporty activities. Any beautiful small towns nearby would be a plus though.
I'm a student and my maximum budget for the cabin rental for 2days/2nights is $300. Since I am new to USA, and have never rented a cabin before, please recommend some websites, locations and cabins I should be looking into. Also, any tips on bargaining/discounts would be welcome. Is it okay to call these cabin owners up and offer a lower price than advertised on their websites?
