One of my favorite places in the DC/NOVA area is the "Lockhouse 6" on the C&O Canal. We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning there two years ago. Here is my previous post about Lockhouse 6.
It's a gorgeous, relatively inexpensive Getaway right in our own Back-yard (you get two bedrooms that sleeps 6 for $150). It's got a cool 1950's vibe. I can't wait to go back. Maybe this time I'll go by myself for some Mama Time.
