We brooklynites want a long weekend getaway in early April. We're thinking Long Island, romantic bed-and-breakfasty but we have a couple of needs and hopes. Can you recommend any specific hotels or b&bs in specific towns that you enjoyed.

We are planning a romantic get-away thats not terribly far from home. We're not tied to Long Island, but the ideal would be small, touristy town on the water and away from city life. We're cost-conscious but have some wiggle room at about 200 per-night.
so this is what we *need*
-somewhat accessible by public transport (if we need to call a cab from the station, that's fine. Neither of us drive).
-accommodations within walking distance of simple attractions (walking trails, boardwalks, antiquing historic sites bike rental stuff like that.)
what we *want* but is optional
-maybe a near by hobby farm with tours or petting zoo
-good seafood restaurants
- natural sights, overlooks but with moderate to low impact hiking needed.
- beaches/waterfronts near by
-it would be just awesome if the room had a private jacuzzi
What we *don't want*
-cabins or camping. Nothing where you have to poop or shower outside.
-hardcore hiking locations. we wouldn't mind looking at a mountain- but we don't want to have to scale it.
-city stuff. We've very recently been to Atlanta, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Cincinnati and Louisville. We're looking for a little something less Urban.
- driving-only places. We can't rent a car. We can't drive.
thanks so much for any help.
