We recommend The Homestead, although we still prefer the the Greenbriar resort down the road in WV, which is larger and more luxurious. We would return to The Homestead again, however. PROs: Loved The Homestead and its mountain setting. The property and grounds are gorgeous and largely well maintained or in some cases, being restored as needed. We loved the... More

What a great staff! Everyone is so friendly and nice! You're always greeted and everyone is willing to help. I had no idea what to expect. It was very relaxing. There are rocking chairs out front and spa type music playing. We used the indoor pool. It's one of the oldest indoor pools in the country. We also used the... More

The skeet shooting was amazing. Our instructor was wonderfully helpful & patient with us. Kayaking was boring! You paddle around a lake with nothing to see. It's hot & overpriced.

We spent three days here and were very impressed with the number of fine resort options. The pools and water park facility were especially nice for kids and usage is included in the general resort fee. We looked forward to the afternoon tea and cookies each day, a nice treat that harkened back to the early 20th century. Take the... More

We went to the Omni Homestead Resort for a wedding. It was just wonderful, you feel like you went back in time. There are numerous activities on the property from a fishing hole with bamboo poles to pool with lazy river and waterslide to lawn games to golf, tennis and spa. The staff were exceptional. The Homestead dates back to... More

The homestead is the ultimate relaxation destination. I have visited in every season, and participated in every activity. They offer a wide range of things to do such as horse back riding, shooting, snow mobiles, golf, tennis, swimming, and many more. There is an activity for everyone and every age. I have stayed in every type of room except the... More

The Homestead is amazing. While this review could be thousands of words long, I'll keep it to the high points: 1. You will feel like you've stepped back in time. Afternoon tea of the porch. Staff that provides a classy, elegant form of customer service. Furnishings that have character-- not the sterile, cloned feel of a modern chain hotel. The... More

I didn't expect much based on the reviews from other Groupon guests, but we wee very pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, pristine, and beautiful. The grounds are well-kept and perfectly landscaped. The food in the main dining room and the cafe is top notch. Not enough high praise can be said about the staff, they are kind, attentive, and...

This is one of the classic old hotel properties that might be worth visiting just for the experience and for the great mountain country that surrounds the hotel. The hotel is beautifully stately from the outside and the main lobby and other common areas are beautifully maintained, but the rooms lack a little luster and the crumbling concrete on the... More

I really enjoyed my stay here, from the breathtaking views to the endless amount of activites to particpiate in I was a very satisfied guest. I will return but set my expectations set a bit lower. The service was usually great, with a few exepctions. I stayed over memorial day weekend, which I understand was VERY busy. However that does... More
