We have visited The Homestead for many years and have seen many changes. We always visited in March as part of Rotary District Conference. So we decided to visit in summer this year. The flowers all around the property were beautiful. Loved the new pool area, exercise room, putt putt, fire pit. Spa was beautiful Room was very nice, beds comfortable. Disappointed in afternoon tea which you now have to stand in line and serve yourself (used to be served to you). Also disappointed in breakfast buffet which has always been our favorite meal. Fruits were still excellent and varied but hot buffet was mediocre. Miss the blueberry, pecan pancakes that were my favorite and replaced with waffles. Loved the music in the main dining room and the ambiance, but the menu is now the same every day except for one entree of the day. Loved the old menu and looked forward to seeing what was "on for tonight" each day. Food was pretty good overall. Staff was very accomodating and I have no complaint about them. Disappointed that there was a charge to use the adult outdoor pool at the Spa. Enjoyed both golf courses as we dodged the rain! I hope the new owners will bring The Homestead back to all it can be and will certainly come back again. Overall a great experience and if you had not been coming for years, you probably would not have some of these comments.
