With plenty of outdoor activities and a handful of indoor activities, it’s hard to find a bad time to visit Salamander Resort & Spa. The 168-room resort offers everything from horseback riding to a treetop canopy tour on property, with plenty more that can be arranged off property — think wine tours and golf. Of course, the best time to enjoy these outdoor activities is when the weather is nice. Fortunately, Salamander Resort & Spa is located in Northern Virginia, so the winters are rather mild. Summers can be brutal with humidity piled on temperatures well into the 90s. But when the weather gets bad, take your activities inside to the 23,000-square-foot spa to enjoy the delightful treatments (don’t miss out on the wet areas in the locker rooms either). You can take part in culinary classes year-round, which take place in the state-of-the-art cooking studio.
The peak season at Salamander Resort & Spa is April through June and September through October, which is when you’ll find rates starting at $475 per night. The low season takes care of the rest of the months (July and August can get a bit steamy) with rates starting at $275 per night.
