ThanksgivingDinner: East Coast?

I live in NYC, my sister lives in Albany, NY. Last year we started the tradition of going away for Thanksgiving Weekend, and eating in an unusual place with a sepcial Thanksgiving Dinner.
 
Last year we did Longwood Gardens (PA) Thanksgiving, and it was excellent.
 
We are looking for suggestions for this year. Any place within 5-6 hours from NYC, since we will be staying all weekend. We are considering Plimouth Plantation, also City Tavern in Pennsylvania. We also could drive as far as Williamsburg VA up to Maine, and places inland. 
 
Ideas??

    If you are serious about Plimoth Plantation, you need to get your reservations in immediately!  They are already sold out for their 11 am and 2:30 pm dinners and only have left their 6 pm meal (and their Friday seating), according to their website.  Their buffets are still available.

    I have two suggestions the Publik House in Sturbridge, MA or The Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield, MA
     
    Resevations are necessary.

    Thanks so far.
     
    We are now looking at "Hunt Country" in Virginia, specifically Red Fox Inn in Middleburg. We are thinking of it because we can go to Inn at Little Washington the night before.

    Certainly not traditional, but excellent - Le Yaca in Williamsburg VA. My family has done this in the past and it has been wonderful.
     
    If you visit W'burg at Thanksgiving you might enjoy visiting Jamestown Settlement where they have special event called "Foods and Feasts". Lots of volunteers join the regular staff in preparing/preserving food as they would have in the time the English first arrived in Virginia. All the outdoor living history area participate - Powhatan Village, English Fort and the Recreated Ships. Unfortunately, the food cannot be shared with visitors, as the outdoors area are up to the health code.
