Overview

Opened in the 1700s as a simple lodge in Virginia’s wilderness, the Homestead evolved into an elegant European-style spa and began welcoming presidents during Thomas Jefferson’s time in office.

All accommodations are equipped with flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers and either one king, one queen or two double featherbeds. Guests have a wide choice of upgrade options including larger rooms, fireplaces and views of the lawn, mountains or pool. For the ultimate splurge, reserve a suite where world leaders have stayed for two hundred years. Luxurious amenities like separate living rooms, two private bedrooms with king size beds, expansive balconies looking out at the Allegheny Mountains and two bathrooms with pedestal tubs make guests feel like royalty. A daily resort fee includes Wi-Fi, shuttles to resort activities, nightly movies and the Southern Social Hour with homemade pastries and tea.

For meals, guests have the option of adding a prepaid meal plan package that includes daily breakfast buffet and a three-course dinner with the choice of refined regional favorites in the upscale Main Dining Room, farm-to-table fare at Jefferson’s or salads, sandwiches and wood-fired pizza at the Casino Restaurant.

Two hot springs flow through the 2,000-acre property and have attracted the South’s most fashionable crowd with healing minerals for centuries. Today the resort features a two-acre water park with slides, a lazy river and play zone for kids in the crystal clear water. Adults can unwind in the whirlpools or private cabanas with cocktail service. Golfers have the chance to tee off the hotel’s course which ranked #26 on Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Hotel Courses to Play in 2016.

Guests of all ages can play golf on the miniature version of the hotel’s famous Cascades Course, hike, bike and ride horseback through the property’s forest trails or kayak, canoe and fish along the Jackson River. The resort also features tennis courts, a paintball course, an archery range and skeet shooting lessons at the historic gun club dating back to 1933.

The outdoor Spa Garden’s spring-fed pool and whirlpool are open all year and guests can book therapeutic face and body treatments, unwind in the Finnish thermal sauna or work up a sweat at fitness center with dance, cycling and yoga classes.
