There are a lot of places that fit that description so you'll need to be more specific to get good recommendations. Some suggestions for areas would be

Door County Wisconsin

Southwest Michigan/Harbor Country

Lake Geneva

Galena, IL

Just some broad suggestions. All of these areas will be quieter by a lot than chicago, but still have things to do and places to eat.

You mentioned going to a resort in West Virginia last year. Was it Oglebay Park Resort in Wheeling? I highly recommend staying in Wilson Lodge @ Oglebay (book a premium room only) Oglebay is absolutely scenic. Lots of activities. Also recommend renting one of their cabins; however they get booked up quickly. Don't delay if you want a cabin. I live in Illinois & my family has been going to Oglebay for many years.
