Sometimes you and your girls need a turn up weekend, and other times chill vibes are desperately needed. If you are looking for the latter, then it’s time to book a stay at Salamander Resort & Spa owned by Sheila Johnson and tucked away on 340 acres in Middleburg, Virginia right outside of Washington, D.C. This resort can boast many things, but being the only 5-star, black-owned resort in the United States is certainly high on the list. If you are looking for a girls’ getaway that emphasizes relaxation, self-care, and indulgence, then this countryside oasis is just the spot for you and your crew.

With complimentary car service to the local wineries, you can also spend a carefree day sipping the finest Virginia wine while taking in the sites. If the indoor amenities and wine tasting is still not enough to keep your crew busy, Salamander also offers tennis courts, a complimentary putting green for aspiring golfers, full equestrian center, and lawn games including croquet, bocce ball, corn hole and life-sized chess. You can also discover more of the surrounding area and browse local boutique shops, zoom down zip lines, or enjoy exclusive golf privileges at Creighton Farms.
