    Looking for a quick getaway with my wife. Any thoughts that are about 3 hours or so from DC?

    Basically looking for something that's a pleasant drive, has a nice room/view where we can chill and destress for a night or so.

    We have done the Greenbrier. I am too cheap for the Inn at Little Washington.

    Thanks!

    If you're interested in American history, Philadelphia's historical treasures would be a worthwhile destination.

    We periodically drive to Baltimore, stay at The Admiral Benbow, and eat at Chingiale.
    Lots of things to do around Inner Harbor over a weekend.

    Williamsburg is another provided you’re interested in that particular era of history

    And of course there’s the Shenandoah area, that has the best drive.

    We also had a nice weekend in Raleigh, but’s that’s a bit more than a three hour drive.

    Nice drive and chill? Cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and hit St. Michaels and Oxford Maryland. Zillions of Inns.Dinner at 208 Talbot in St. Mikes.
    Like planes? Udvar Hazy branch of Smithsonian Air and Space Museum near Dulles airport will blow you away.
    Like cars? Simeone Museum in Philadelphia was rated #1 car museum in the world. Unbelievable collection of sports racing cars.

    I just stayed at Salamander. I very highly recommend it.

    Very equestrian, but the spa services were, for a resort, the best I’ve ever had.

    DSD, plenty of great suggestions already from others here...

    To mix it up, I would add Deep Creek Lake at an Air BnB house. The roads in Western MD and WV are empty and stunning.

    Also, anywhere near the DE beaches would be fun. Lewes or Bethany...

    Great roads too.

    It’s not as wonderful as it once was when it was owned by Club Resorts, but it’s pretty wonderful.

    But... I see no need to overshoot Salamander for it.
