Trip ideas for my mom and me next weekend? NYC area, fairly accessible, beach preferred, and we'd like to stay two nights. Please help!

My mom is coming to visit, and I'd like to take her to the beach somewhere in the NYC area 8/26 and 8/27 (next weekend). I'd like to stay two nights and not spend more than $200/night. The Hamptons would be ideal so we can train it out there, but I can't find any occupancy online. Does anyone know if this is a call the place type thing? Fire Island would also be nice, but I worry she won't like dealing with the ferry. Please note: no car.
Failing all that, if we went to the Catskills, if that might be easier, that could be nice, although the beach is a slight preference. Would that be easier to find short notice places to stay.
I'm hoping I get some good answers, as all my friends have beach houses and no idea how to find area lodging, or just never deal and do day trips, which I don't want to do.
