My husband and I stayed here for only 1 night but we'd go back in a flash. The innkeeper we met, Chris, was so hospitable. The lodge is just that - wood, stone fireplaces, wide and many windows overlooking the Potamac below - lots of greens and woods on a very quiet street. In the main hallway, there's coffees, teas, sodas, water - and the cake of the day - when we were there it was a delicious chocolate cake using one of Julia Childs' recipes. The breakfast was to die for - all the ingredients, including coffee, berries, flour, etc., are locally made or grown. We had a parfait of fresh blueberries w/yogurt and grenache, wild cherry scone freshly baked, oatmeal pancakes, local coffee, etc. We were really at home here. Our room couldn't have been nicer - very large, great bed and covers, all the amenities of a high class hotel. It is an absolutely beautiful place - out of the noise, relaxing, w/everything at your fingertips.
