Economy family trip northeast US Aug. 2016

I'm in charge of finding a trip for my three siblings and our spouses sometime during the last two weeks in August for maybe 4 nights. Say 3-5 nights. We live in NJ and PA and want it to be driveable, maybe NY state or New England. It also has to be affordable, as in no hotels that cost hundreds of dollars a night. We're all seniors so don't want something terribly active, but would like a mix of scenery or attractions to look at, maybe a little village to wander around in, and somewhere we can hang out together to chat or whatever.

Would consider escorted bus tours or just some place where we can go and use as a base.

I've considered Lake George. Looks like some lovely resorts where we could just hang out by the water if we wanted. But what I've seen so far looks expensive. I don't want something where we're just sitting in a hotel out by a highway.

Any ideas?
Thanks so much!
