Southern charming resort

Posted Nov 28, 2017
Pros: Lots to do to please young and old alike. Handicap accessible.
Cons: Ski area food was mediocre.
Location: So much to do here: skiing, swimming/hot tub, hiking, shopping, spa treatments, fitness ctr, bird watching, golf, skeet shooting, horseback riding.
Southern hospitality all the way! Resort is in a remote part of VA with many amenities offered (at an add'l fee) but lots of fun and entertainment at no add'l charge as well. Tea time was offered each day. They were decorated for the holidays, including a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. Recommend making dinner reservations in advance if staying over a holiday. Appropriate dinner attire (jacket & collared shirts / dresses) required for some dining locations. Allegheny pool and hot tub was splendid! A relaxing time. Fitness area had up to date equipment. Staff could not have been more accommodating and professional! Bring cash for tipping.

Nice hotel- extremely over priced

Posted Nov 13, 2017
Overall our stay was nice, but not one of the best weekend get aways we have ever had. If you are coming here for a weekend be prepared to spend at least 1k for lodging and dinner for two nights. We ate in the hot springs village every night (10 minus walk) because we did not have formal attire required for dinner at the hotel. the least expensive resort activities was minimum of $110. We were looking to enjoy a couple massage for our anniversary, but I refused to pay $400+ for that as well. The hotel hasn’t been updated in quite some time- the rooms are as basic as your holiday inn express. No fancy showers- just a good old fashioned tub. $50 lunches for two and $12 drinks at the lobby bar.... oh and $10 a day to park the car. The best winter activity here is to plant your butt by the fireplace in the lobby and grab a nice book.

Awesome get away

Posted Nov 8, 2017
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at The Homestead in November. It was absolutely beautiful among the trees. It was a wet time during our visit but it did not dampen our time. Husband was able to play a game of golf, we watched football in the lounge and I totally relaxed with a good book by one of the many fireplaces. We will make this visit again.

Easy pace..

Posted Nov 7, 2017
Setting, facilities, scale and open space provides nice departure from today's fast pace of life... This is not Times Square.. or the Ritz but more of a gentle reminder of what down time can be. The resort is weather resistant regarding possible activities.. During all seasons a bad weather forecast will not derail a weekend getaway.. Fair value for dollar spent..

Excellent vintage hotel

Posted Nov 2, 2017
Pros: excellent staff
Cons: Better value
The Homestead is s superb old style historic hotel and resort. Staff were very friendly and very well trained. Very good but overpriced breakfast buffet. We only stayed overnight to attend a concert at the Garth Newell Music center and did not participate in any resort activities but were charged the resort fee anyway. Breakfast was delicious and extensive in its offering but cost $29. The room was comfortable but not anything special. What was special was the historic hotel itself and the staff. Despite the high cost of the room itself, the breakfast and the unnecessary "resort" fee was the gall to charge $10 for parking (not valet parking, I parked myself) which simply seemed insulting.

Nice Spa & Dining

Posted Oct 11, 2017
Would highly recommend spa; food was overpriced, but the quality was excellent. I was disappointed at the lack of accommodations for guests requiring a handicap accessible faciiity, as the hotel was not accommodating. I assume this is due to the historic nature of the building, but it still excludes a large number of individuals who would otherwise enjoy the resort if it was handicap friendly.

Relaxing in the mountains

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Our family has just completed a wonderful three night stay at the Homestead over the Columbus Day weekend. We partook of the fabulous hike to the waterfalls, the dining and lots of time in the various swimming pools. We've already recommended the hotel to our next door neighbor.
