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

All accommodations are equipped with flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers and either one king, one queen or two double beds. Upgraded options include larger rooms, fireplaces and views of the lawn, mountains or pool. 

The 2,300-acre property has attracted the South’s most fashionable crowd with healing minerals for centuries at the hot springs. Today, the resort features a 2-acre water park with slides, a lazy river and a play zone for kids. Adults can unwind in the whirlpool or private cabanas. Golfers have the chance to tee off on the Cascades, which ranked No. 27 on Golf Magazine’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses in America (2017).

Guests of all ages can play miniature golf on the Mini Cascades; hike, bike, ride horseback or Segway through the property’s trails; or kayak, canoe and fish along the Jackson River. The resort also features a zip-line tour, tennis courts, a paintball course, an archery range and trap, skeet and sporting clays at the historic gun club, which dates back to 1933.

The spa's outdoor adults-only Serenity Garden features a spring-fed pool and whirlpool along with a Finnish sauna and river reflexology walk (open all year), and guests can book therapeutic face and body treatments or work up a sweat at the fitness center with dance, cycling and yoga classes.

Other Comments
Room amenities are borderline. Wonder what a standard room is compared to the deluxe upgrade since there was nothing obvious to suggest a difference...worn furniture, no tissues or ice available nearby. Promised ice from room service didn’t arrive in the hour before leaving for dinner and wasn’t there when we returned. Disapppointing....
