Seeking an early Autumn room with a view

Completely indecisive person seeking an end of September/early October 3-4 day trip from DC - short drive, train, or plane trip for around 1k. No idea where I want to go, but the only must is a room/balcony with a really beautiful nature view.

I’m having my windows replaced on September 30th, and want to get out of town while that work is being done (don’t need to be there for the project). I have no idea where to go, but a couple requisites:
- private balcony with a nice nature view (mountains, lake, beach, don't care, but just something that’s super beautiful to look at)
- max 2 hour drive from DC, or double that train/plane ride
I pretty much just want a calm, scenic place to take walks/hikes, go for runs, read, and stare at a nice view with some coffee/tea/wine. Would like to spend not more than 1k for the entire 3-4 day trip, but can possibly maybe go up to 1,300 total (transportation, lodging, food, etc).
I'd love some pretty fall foliage, but it late Sept/early Oct is probably too early for that. But I'm open to any kind of climate/temps, as long as I can get some nice nature views.
