Set on 340 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains amid Virginia’s famed horse country and lush vineyards, and just 30 minutes to the west of Washington Dulles International Airport Salamander Resort & Spa is designed to blend into the natural environment in which it sits. Opening in August 2013, the resort features 168 luxurious rooms and suites, a 23,000-square-foot spa, a full-service equestrian center, Virginia Piedmont-inspired dining, a dedicated cooking studio, wine bar and a unique array of conference and banquet facilities. Resort Owner Sheila C. Johnson has created an environmentally sensitive destination by placing 252 of the resort’s acres into a conservation easement, and when the property opens, it will be one of the first luxury destination resort and spas in the United States to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
