Dinner and dancing, what a treat!Posted Nov 2, 2015
Pros: Old fashioned charm and excellent concierge service were highlights of our stay.
We were thrilled and surprised to go to the main dining room for dinner and find live music and a lovely dance floor! Our experience at the Homestead Resort continued the next day with a wonderful naturalist guided hike of the gorge. Our only disappointment was that the pool was undergoing maintenance during our visit.

Another great OMNI resortPosted Oct 21, 2015
The Hot Springs OMNI was great. The room was unique and very comfortable. The grounds are gorgeous. The property inviting. My son and I took the Segway tour and loved it. My husband is still talking up the old course to his golf buddies. Good food, great staff.

Great Nature Retreat/A Bit Dated/Senior CitizensPosted Oct 21, 2015
Pros: Great Spa. Good restaurants. Gorgeous natural setting. Hot natural springs. Hiking Trails.
Cons: Hard to say update a hotel that's about 150 years old and in the middle of nowhere to attract more young adults, but that's what I would like to see.
Location: It's in the middle of nowhere. If you love nature, it's incredibly gorgeous. If you want a movie theater...nearest one is 2.5 hours away.
Gorgeous setting. Lots to do outdoors.... Great hiking trails (take the waterfall tour trail), Golf (if you like that it must be heaven here), Horse carriage ride is great (reserve an hour), Shooting ranges and more. There is a Spectacular Spa with natural hot mineral spring pool and it was great (go during cooler weather to really enjoy). The Spa is the highlight of the hotel by far. It's impressively modern. Surprisingly good restaurants given it's secluded location. We live in downtown DC and are picky about food and though it's not NYC, it exceeded our expectations by far for such an old resort. Staff are trained to be very friendly, even when you can tell they are exhausted and not wanting to deal with things they take care of all your requests very well. Rooms were nice, period style. So... we went during the week to avoid the hordes of family and kids we read about. We definitely avoided them, but found the hordes of senior citizens during the week. There were maybe 4 or 5 other pairs of younger city couples there. The VAST majority of everyone else were senior citizens. This is likely great if your older or quite suburban, but after a few days it wears on your perception of you are very urban. Regardless, we expected the place would be a bit dated going into it and so were prepared and everything was quite nice. You go here to get away from the chaos right? They even have a coffee shop inside the hotel which was a surprise. Overall we liked it.

Amazing experience at the HomesteadPosted Oct 10, 2015
Location: Beautiful location with tons of things to do. Hiking, canoeing, falconry, horseback riding etc
My wife and I were on our Honeymoon and chose the Homestead. We are so thankful that we did. From the moment we arrived until our final checkout we had the best vacation. The staff all went over and above to help us and everyone was absolutely fantastic to deal with. The amenities are all top notch. We had amazing experiences horseback riding and doing falconry! Our only complaint is that we wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you to everyone at the Homestead for making it a wonderful stay. We will be back! James & Gaby Leman

Fancy remote getawayPosted Oct 4, 2015
This is very nice, well-maintained, history rich resort with lots of fun activities for all ages. The primary drawback is the difficulty required to reach it's secluded mountain location. DO NOT attempt to drive here if you are not a skilled mountain driver. Dark, wet, or icy trips should be avoided at all costs. The food onsite is four star restaurant quality, but you will pay 4 star restaurant prices. Overall good time. Would book again in summer for maximum enjoyment.

Past the time for a renovation.Posted Aug 27, 2015 on Hotels
DO NOT FOLLOW GPS IF COMING FROM THE SOUTH. Harrowing road over a mountain - follow website directions. The property is very worn, bed was soft, very little water pressure, SO many young children - more than any hotel we've ever stayed in outside of Disney. Hard to get the R&R we went there for. To avoid the screaming children around the pool, had to buy a day pass for the Spa Pool- $50/person/day. Felt like we were being gouged. The food was expensive, but very good. Stunning views along the golf courses.

big old traditional family resort in the mountainsPosted Aug 23, 2015
Kind of old-world waspy for my taste, but not overly stuffy, and in a beautiful location. I found the staff overworked but pleasant. Please acknowledge them with a kind word; notice them..

Simply AmazingPosted Aug 18, 2015 on Hotels
Simply amazing. Fabulous, historic, picturesque, luxurious, splendid, unique. One of the top 10 great historic country hotels of the USA. It is very expensive, but its worth it as a luxury hotel, destination, experience and resort all rolled into one. You will be pampered and served so well, and need never leave during your stay. The place is steeped in history - some of it literally living. We were shown to our table for the sumptuous breakfast, and later recognised the very dignified gentleman employee who took care of us pictured on the prominent long service wall - 55 years service.
