...that has lots of hills, trees, streams/rivers, not more than a couple hours away from a medium sized city, and not too cold in wintertime--then what places should I look into?

Depends on what region of the country you are considering, as most regions have these features. North Georgia would fit your criteria if you were interested in areas in the south. It has a nice balance of hills, streams/rivers and lots of trees. You are at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and you have several mid-sized cities within an hour drive. Rome Georgia is nice little mid size city which is surrounded by beautiful landscape.

Reynolds or Shannon County, Missouri. They don't even have any towns of more than a couple hundred people. Of, somewhere between Sullivan and DeSoto Missouri. That's abut 75 miles southwest of St Louis.

Western North Carolina, Eastern Tennessee, North Georgia, Northwest South Carolina, Eastern Kentucky, West Virginia, and the western part of Virginia. Pretty much the Appalachian part of the South.
