Christmas getaway near DC for people who don't celebrate Christmas?

I'd like to take the gf for a relaxing/romantic getaway for or around Christmas. Being Jewish, we don't celebrate it, so obviously we'd prefer something that won't be too Christmasy. (Decorations and songs are fine, we just don't want it to be a whole Christmas thing.)

Not sure how far you want to go, but Wintergreen and Massanutten are pretty nice.

For some reason, I am getting 404'rd on Massanutten, but hopefully they will fix it soon.

The Inn at Little Washington (Washington, VA).

Thanks for the answers so far.

I meant to add that we're pretty sedentary, so skiing/hiking/etc isn't a big plus.

Maybe consider Garrett county in west Maryland, spcifically the Deep Creek Lake area. It may be too late to get a reasonably-priced cabin, though, as it's a big skiing destination also.

The Inn at Little Washington is supposed to be incredible. It is also astonishingly expensive and popular, so you should keep that in mind.
