Transportation

The nearest airport to Charles Town is Dulles International Airport.  It is located approximately 50 miles from the retreat cite.  Because this airport is very near Washington D.C., traffic around the airport can be very congested and add significant time for travel.  Click here for transportation information from the airport.
