Cabin in north-east Pennsylvania radius?

I am looking for a relaxing weekend by myself within a 4 hour radius of my home (Scranton, PA). I have been searching airbnb for cabins in specific towns that I know of, but I don't think I'm getting all of the areas I should. Do you know of a cute town or specific cabin rental in the northeast PA, lower NY state, upper WV, or NJ area that I should look at for a luxurious weekend getaway by myself. My main requirements are wifi and a big tub. I can bring my own groceries so I don't care if it's remote.

What are the major sources of cabin noise in cars?

I've been thinking of buying noise dampening products to make my car interior quieter. It seems that the common approaches are to get spray-on dampener for the wheel wells and peel/stick sheets for areas like the trunk. Some people go nuts and tear the entire car apart to line the entire cabin with sheets. I don't have time or money to go nuts, but I would be willing to be a little crazy to target the top 3 or 4 sources of cabin noise, if I could figure out what they are. [more inside]

Looking for a film with people frozen in a car

I saw this film on television in the 70s when I was young; it was broadcast sometime before 1979. Some people are stranded after a snow storm. At one point they discover a car in the snow, and when they look inside the car they see the people in it were frozen to death. I think someone cried out, "Oh, no, it's the professor!" (or something like that). At another point in the film they come across a cabin in the woods and try to open a can of something they find, but they have no can opener. The film was in color, so please don't suggest something in black & white. It may have been made for TV or it may have been an actual film; I remember there being a lot of commercials for it because we had just had the great "Blizzard of 1978" in Boston. Any help finding this film would be great! One person suggested to me it might be "The Untamed" directed by Archainbaud, but it is not that. PLEASE HELP!

Rustic cabin on the Appalachian with in a 1/2 day drive of Pocono PA

The last weekend of June I'm headed to Pocono PA for a family reunion with my bf. We're from Seattle and want to stay an additional 4-5 nights to explore the area. We're looking for a rustic cabin or lodge surrounded by wilderness to explore. We've been looking around the Delaware Gap but everything seems targeted at families with kids or golfers (we're in our 20s). It'd be great to do some hiking on the Appalachian Trail. The hut to hut hikes in NH look pretty amazing but they're a bit of a trek from PA. If you're familiar with the Northwest we're looking for the Doe Bay or Kalaloch of the area. Thanks for your help.
