Leave congress to squabble over healthcare, government spending, and tax cuts—it's time to put partisanship on pause with a trip to West Virginia's Lost River Valley, just two hours outside of DC.

Escape for a two-night stay for two at the Lost River Bed and Breakfast on Fridays and Saturdays or Saturdays and Sundays ($239), including a guided horseback ride for two from Hidden Trails Stables, or settle in for a two-night stay on Sundays through Thursdays ($177). Tucked between two mountain ridges in a rugged and rustic slice of Appalachia, this restored farmhouse offers a casual, country calm rarely found on Capitol Hill.

Talking heads cease upon filling up on an included continental breakfast each morning, as well as on lunch and dinner with included dining credits—worth $20 and $45, respectively. Afternoon and evening meals are served at the on-site Lost River Grill, where the only executive order is that you try the hand-cut steaks, fresh shrimp pesto, chicken Italiano, and homemade chocolate cream pie.

Once you've enjoyed a house recess, convene for a special session of wine and hors d'œuvres on one night of your stay.

Legislate changes to your daily routine when you choose among the area's vast array of outdoor pursuits. Go fishing in the aptly named Trout Pond, bike or hike your way through Lost River State Park, take a rafting trip down the South Fork River, or go for a climb in George Washington National Forest.

It's about time you lobbied for a change of pace—and this is just the Escape to declare your independence from the bustle of the big city.

  • "For those who love the great outdoors, there are few states that can match this corner of Appalachia for scenic beauty and challenging terrain. (The state's nickname, 'The Mountain State,' is well earned.)"

    -- Frommer's
