Lansdowne Resort Offers Furlough Freedom Rate for Government Workers

Includes Complimentary Play at The Golf Club at Lansdowne

As the government shutdown continues and the debt ceiling limit looms, thousands of furloughed government workers remain unemployed throughout the Washington, DC area. Today, Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, VA announced a special $129 overnight rate for furloughed government workers through November. The offer also includes complimentary golf at The Golf Club at Lansdowne and waived resort fee. Overall, the Furlough Freedom offer reflects a savings of 65 percent off retail rates.

“We know these are tough times for our friends throughout the DC area that work for the federal government.” said Michael Snapkoski, director of sales and marketing. “We wanted to provide an opportunity where workers and their families could get away, forget about the politics going on in DC for awhile and spend some time in a place that is stress-free.”

The special furlough freedom rate is valid through November 30 and subject to availability and holiday blackout dates. Government workers will be required to display their official federal identification upon check-in to secure the rate and complimentary golf.

Lansdowne Resort is located in scenic DC Wine Country about 40 minutes west of Washington DC and eight miles north of Dulles International Airport. The AAA Four Diamond property is International Association of Conference Center (IACC) and Virginia Green certified and has 296 luxury guest rooms and 14 suites. Amenities and resort recreation include five restaurants; an Aquatic Complex with five pools and a waterslide; three tennis courts; 12,000 square foot Spa Minérale with 13 treatment rooms; and The Golf Club at Lansdowne with 45 holes of golf designed by Robert Trent Jones and Greg Norman, and managed by Troon Golf.

Furloughed government workers are asked to call the resort to book the special offer at (703) 729-8400. For more information, visit
