Looking for a unique place to have a socially distant vacation? Book a stay at one of the historic C&O Canal Quarters where lock keepers and their families once lived as they tended to the canal.
Each of the seven lockhouses has been preserved so you can experience what life was like during the construction and height of the canal. Each house is furnished with a different time period in mind, telling the history of the canal as its story intertwines with the Civil War, railroad industry, Civilian Conservation Corps, National Park Service, and more.
Along the towpath in the C&O Canal National Historical Park, you’ll have easy access to the 184.5-mile trail and the Potomac River. Spend your days, hiking, biking, fishing, and paddling before settling in for a cozy night at the lockhouse.
You will have the lockhouse to yourself, offering a safe place for your family
