WARRENTON, Va.--()--Airlie Center, a leading conference destination in the United States, is pleased to announce it is now welcoming guests for private bed and breakfast-style weekend getaways for the first time since opening its doors in 1961. In response to overwhelming client requests, the new Weekends at Airlie promotion provides the opportunity for national and international visitors to the Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia area and residents of the region alike to enjoy one- or two-night weekend stays at the tranquil Airlie campus without having to be an attendee of a conference or special event.
“Now, for the first time, we are delighted to offer exactly that option for the next several months—not only to past guests, but to anyone wishing to experience Airlie’s beauty and natural surroundings.”
“For many years, conference guests who have discovered all that Airlie has to offer have asked if they could return to share our unique environment with family and friends without being a meeting attendee,” said Kevin Carter, General Manager of Airlie Center. “Now, for the first time, we are delighted to offer exactly that option for the next several months—not only to past guests, but to anyone wishing to experience Airlie’s beauty and natural surroundings.”
Several Weekends at Airlie options are available, including a one-night stay with a Friday or Saturday check-in, or a two-night, full weekend stay.

Weekend guests will enjoy all the complimentary amenities offered to conference attendees, including access to Airlie’s tennis and volleyball courts, exercise room with an abundance of natural light, free loaner bicycles, outdoor swimming pool, fishing areas and many scenic routes for walking or running.
