Not sure about my bachelorette party

So I want to go away for my bachelorette party. Everyone said they are fine with a weekend. I have two options but I'm unsure of both.

My FH aunt owns a beach house, which we could use for free, but there is a big chance of her being there, so we really couldn't let loose. We would also be going to the shore in October, so itll be chilly and a lot of shops/restaurants may not be open.

My second option is renting an air bnb in the poconos. The cost would be split between about 6 or 7 people so it should be cheap. I figure we stock up on snacks and drinks for the weekend. Maybe rent one with a hot tub. I brought this idea up to my mom and she said that I should do something more exciting and go somewhere with more things to do.

I just really dont want to go out and party or go to bars and get drunk. I would rather spend a weekend in with my ladies where we can get drunk in a private setting lol. I'm just so afraid that the poconos idea will be boring for everyone

    I had a cabin bachelorette and it was amazing. Do you, girl! As long as the budget works for everyone involved, there’s nothing that says you have to go out and party with strippers for your bach. I loved getting to spend time with my people, hanging in front of the fire and doing a few daytime wine tastings.

    I would love to be invited to a bachelorette party like you described in the second option. I don't go to bars/clubs and if I ever do decide to get tipsy, it's at my house lol. I think the second option would be a blast!

    I organised something similar to your second option. We rented an air bnb for 2 nights with 8 of us girls. Plans are to drink, play some hens games, eat and do face masks. Maybe explore the town and go to a beach. My bachelorette is actually tomorrow and I’m so excited!!
    But yea I wasn’t keen on going out for that traditional wild bachelorette night. And all my girls loved the idea of the air bnb.

    It’s not your mom’s party— it’s yours. If you want a low key poconos hang— go for it! If someone doesn’t think it sounds fun, they don’t have to come.

    personally I would not want to consider the beach house — hanging with your future husband’s aunt sounds kind of uncomfortable to me.

    Btw we just went the Airbnb in the woods route— we did make some adventuring plans (stopped at a local brewery & vineyard and went out for a nice meal) but the best parts to me were the hanging at the house parts! The first night we made a nice big pasta dinner and drank lots of wine and then went in the hot tub and made a fire in the fire pit and made s’mores— it was perfect! As was the next morning where we made a big breakfast (with sangria!) — it was all so relaxing and fun and absolutely perfect ...and later in the day we hung at the house with the music blasting and had a great sing along (&danc e party...thanks, sangria brunch!). It was a perfect weekend and everyone had fun!

    That sounds awesome! My MOH went to college in the town we're looking at, so I'm hoping she has ideas for good places to eat! I want to go to a winery and maybe somewhere to eat. The rental I have my eye on has some kayaks too so I'm getting all excited now!

    Yeah...she is also our landlord so I see enough of her lol. She's fine to hang with when family is around, but she's very nitpicky about the beach house. If you use it and she finds a single crumb you're not allowed to come back

    The second option sounds more fun to me! You'd be able to let lose but not have to get blackout drunk if you don't want to! There will be plenty to do in the Poconos, I'm sure!

    Honestly, the second option sounds like a lot more fun to me! I've never been one to want to go out and party. So a nice couple nights in with games, drinks, and my girls sounds awesome.
