We live in the DC area and need a break for the weekend. This was a very good choice. Only an hour and a half from the Rockville area. I was looking for a day trip to a nice family style resturant and found Hickory Bridge also offered overnight stays. We decide to make plans and stay the stay the night after dinner. We checked in around 3pm and was met by the innkeeper Mary Lynn. She makes you feel like a friend that you have know for years. We stayed in one of the cottages along the creek. It was a rainy and chilly day so we decided to just relax in the cabin for the afternoon until dinner. The cabin was built in the 70's but was nice. It was very clean and cozy. We started a fire in the Franklin fireplace and enjoyed a wet and cold afternoon. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner and came back to the cabin and watched a movie. There is no cable or satelite service so if tv is your thing take some dvds or a good book. We plan on making this a regular weeekend getaway.
