WASHINGTON — You don’t need to break the bank to enjoy an inauguration vacation: Montgomery County’s parks department is offering accommodations from rustic to refined.
For just $36 to $51 dollars you can hook up your RV at one of 26 electric sites in Clarksburg’s Little Bennett Regional Park. But if you’re looking for a more conventional place to stay during the presidential inauguration, consider Potomac’s Rockwood Manor. It used to be the Girl Scouts’ national headquarters.
“So Rockwood Manor is used as an event center in Maryland,” said Nancy Cadigan, the regional operations manager for the enterprise division of Montgomery Parks.
Rockwood has a variety of accommodations. “We have regular hotel-style accommodations that can sleep thirty seven” but in addition, Cadigan said, “We have three bunkhouse cabins and each of those cabins with bunk beds can sleep up to 28 people per cabin.”
Prices for the hotel-type rooms run from $115 to $150 per night plus tax, and Cadigan adds, “We are not raising our rates. These are our normal rates at any time of year this is what we would charge.”
For an entire bunkhouse, the rates would top out at $520 a night for the dorm-style cabins. There is also the original caretakers’ home known as The French House. Rates for the French House range from $240 to $290 a night.
