Relax and Rejuvenate at the Spa
Sightseeing in our capital can quickly wear you out! All the people, the endless list of places, and the walking takes a toll on your mind and body. Relax, refresh and reignite the romance with a spa day for the two of you. The Calvert Rejuvenations Spa is a fantastic stop on your way back to our beautiful Inn from touring around Washington. We recommend their “Tea for Two Experience”. Enjoy tea, cheese and fruit in a private room before your spa treatment begins. It’s the perfect way to unwind and reconnect with each other.
Stroll Through the Elegant Gardens at Long Branch Plantation
Heading back to The Inn at Vaucluse Spring after a day discovering some of our national treasures? Be sure to stop by Long Branch Plantation on your way. Strolling through their incredible gardens hand-in-hand is a perfect way to slow down after a day in the city. Escape the hustle and bustle of Washington DC and walk through some of the most beautiful 400 acres of countryside around. Long walks with loved ones in places like this always inspires wonderful conversations!
Tour a Beautiful Vineyard
Nothing beats romantic getaways near DC like a vineyard tour. Stephens City, Virginia offers some beautiful landscapes and stunning vineyards, like the Valerie Hill Vineyard & Winery. As a bonus, Valerie Hill is just a few minutes away from our inn! Enjoy their gorgeous farm, Federal-style brick manor house, and some elegant Chardonnay. Valerie Hill also frequently has live musicians so you can relax and enjoy the ambiance. It’s a great place to visit with the one you love!
