Short affordable vacation ideas within driving distance of Toronto?

Mr. barnoley and I would like to have a short last-minute getaway with baby barnoley (age 7 months). We don't have a lot of money to spend, but basically just need a change of scenery for a few days.... it's been a tough couple of months with extended family drama and sudden deaths.
We are looking for a destination that is affordable and charming and has family friendly activities. We were thinking somewhere in the U.S. - maybe upstate New York? - since that way we could also do some cross border shopping. Or perhaps in Ontario, but we haven't done any planning so are concerned any interesting places will be already fully booked. We are planning on going sometime in June or July. We are flexible on dates since I'm on maternity leave and mr. barnoley sets his own hours.
We like long walks, good cheap food, nature.... really anything, as long as it's not too difficult to do with an infant. We would prefer the location to be within a 6-7 hour drive of Toronto. Any ideas?
