The Salamander Resort & Spa is under 50 miles from Washington, D.C., but "with its acres of rolling fields and relaxed atmosphere, it feels like it's worlds away" (U.S. News). Offering 168 luxurious rooms on 340 acres of Virginia countryside, the Salamander is one of the South's 10 Best Resorts (Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice 2017).

Each of the Salamander's rooms features lofty 10-foot ceilings, a soaking tub, marble shower and a balcony or patio; many have working fireplaces as well. Guests can take in views of the Grand Lawn or the rolling acres. Wi-Fi and self-parking are complimentary, and access to the fitness center, sauna and indoor/outdoor pool is also included.

True farm-to-table dining is available Harrimans Virginia Piedmont Grill, with many ingredients sourced from the chef's garden outside the restaurant. The restaurant may offer the best view in the house, with panoramas of the countryside and the Bull Run Mountains in the distance. There's also a variety of Virginia wines on hand at the Gold Cup wine bar. 

Guests can also arrange horseback riding excursions on the same lands that Jackie Kennedy once rode or soar through the treetops on a zip-line tour. In nearby Middleburg, guests can visit polo fields and Civil War battlefields, go antiquing or sample vintages at nearby wineries.

It's not a truly relaxing visit to the Salamander without a trip to the 23,000-square-foot spa with 14 treatment rooms on hand, including rooms with outdoor terraces for sunlit massages and a couples spa suite. Treatments include massages, facials, body wraps and salon services. Afterward, relax at the infinity-edge pool, waterfall, steam room and whirlpool. 

This resort is the crown jewel of the Salamander Hotels and Resorts family, with five other luxury properties throughout the Southeast.

Other Comments
We booked the trip for a spa getaway. Called a week before arrival to make spa reservations, was sent an answering machine. No one ever got back to us. We decided to book massages once we got to the hotel. When we arrived we were told the spa was completely booked and we couldn’t even get a day pass to use the facilities! No apology was offered, and we were told “yeah the answering machine doesn’t even come to us, it goes to reservations”. Then the restaurant only offered a limited menu of sandwiches for dinner due to the crowds. Not what I expect from an expensive five star resort. Disappointing waste of limited vacation time and money.
