Best Girls Weekend Getaway In Virginia

Sharing one of the Best Girls Weekend Getaway In Northern Virginia . College friends are some of the best friends you will have. There is something about being on your own for the first time, that creates an unbreakable bond. Since I went to a private college that attracted students from all over the country, my college friends are not close.

One day in October, we started a text chat that we needed to get together and thought DC would be easiest for those flying and driving. So the search for the best girls weekend in Northern Virginia was started and I came across Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, VA.

Lansdowne Resort is only a short drive from Dulles Airport and minutes to some of Virginia’s most beautiful countryside, and wine country. Not only was the location convenient but what more than wine tours and spa treatments do 4 women need on a girls’ weekend getaway.

We decided to go with the Wine and Unwind Package which is a mix of both the Girlfriends spa getaway and the Discover Virginia Wine Country Packages. Like I mentioned before what else do you need on a girls weekend than to hit the wineries and also experience a spa!

When you drive to Lansdowne resort it looks very modern and you can tell that it caters to the convention and wedding group. However, once you get inside there are several seating areas, many with fireplaces that create a very small and cozy environment.


The rooms are clean and spacious with modern bathrooms. We had a view facing the golf course which is the best way to enjoy the gorgeous surrounding area.



Walking around the property you will also find many outdoor seating areas, one with a fire pit. Lansdowne sells S’Mores packages near the front desk so you can sit and relax with a glass of wine and some fun childhood memories.


There are several places to eat on the property and were all decent restaurants.


Spa Getaways in Virginia

The first night we headed to the spa for a little R&R. The Lansdowne Spa Minérale is a very clean and modern spa that served our needs and everyone was more than happy with the treatments they received. We relaxed and met other women in the lounges and then finished off our night with a steam.

Heading back upstairs we had one of their signature treats, the Sweet and Savory which included bacon and pretzels with chocolate. We also received the Fresh Fruit & Cheese Board and also a bottle of VA Wine. Excuse the photo the lighting was bad at night.

Ok here is the real thing on their website:)

After a brisk walk to the Potomac, and a buffet breakfast we boarded the Wine Tour bus. They take you to two vineyards and you have about 90 minutes at each location.

Be sure to pick up one of their wine tour picnic baskets to enjoy while on the tour. It was filled with meats, cheeses and everything you could want while sitting in a beautiful wine country.

While our time was short, the girls had an amazing weekend of laughter and friendship. Lansdowne Resort proved to be just what us girls wanted for a girls weekend getaway. During warmer visits, there is also a large pool, golf course and tennis courts to enjoy.
