We had always visited the Jefferson Pools as a highlight of our annual visit to the Omni-Homestead. The pools are now closed. During our visit in 2016, we noticed that the water was extremely algae filled. I had a cut on my hand but decided...More

The Jefferson pools are sadly in aging disrepair - I recall when I tried the Men’s Pool some 30 years ago - a large 30’’ diameter circular stone lined pool of steaming water The Omni should proudly address the repairs as soon as possible -...More

Been traveling thru Virginia 2-3 times per year and always go out of my way to take in the Jefferson Pools baths. Sure the buildings are old and somewhat rickety, but that is part of the charm of the place. Affordable, very soothing and instead...More

This was the only public spring in the area. I've been going for years and while the building is aged, I never felt like I was in real danger. I swam in the pools during a full on thunderstorm one summer and didn't feel like...More

Yes, the structures were in poor repair, but it seemed that the water was dirty. I thought that the flow would keep it clean and blamed the smell on the sulfur but we were all sick for two weeks after. Do you go there to...More
