Mahabaleshwar is a great Hill Station I dont know where you are coming from to pune so cant guide you there but you can take a bus in the evening from Pune to Mahabaleshwar you will reach early in the morning AC luxury Bus will cost you hardly 400Rs not more than that There are variety of hotels there choose the one that fits to your Budget (no need to book it earlier than you will not have choice to select the one which you actually liked after reaching there)There are many Locations in Mahabaleshwar You will love to hang around ............ I love suicide Point (pls dont go by name I dont know which Fool named it that) but thats the coolest place..... you can also visit Panchgani which is 80 Km from Mahabaleshwar and Wai it is also near by
I guess You are going for the Honeymoon. in that case I m sure you are least bothered about Locations

Hey Amit there is one thing common(almost)about these Hill stations that is Suicide Point as it is only to attract tourist. and beside that there is always a Lovers Point too. (I don't know about Mahabaleswar but most of the Hill station has one.)
It is a nice hilly place and you should visit there. Now it is little bit off-season but you will love it. I was there 2 weeks ago; little hot in the day time but slight cold in the night. When I was there, it was celebration time (Strawberry).
Book bus ticket from MSRTC [^]site and start journey in the morning (7-8 AM schedule from Shivaji Nagar/Pune Station/Swargate) and you will reach there nearly around 12:30 PM. Take some rest in any hotel (book online, otherwise you have to find out there itself. No need to be tensed about hotel as there are many near ST stand).
Book a cab there and chose the "Tour Package" (must visit first 3 tours). Rest of the time you can manage with the cab driver whether to start on the same day or the next day but I will suggest you to go to the Lake on the first day itself (evening time).
