We booked at the last minute by calling Homestead Reservations directly. They were speedy AND offered us a rate lower that what was posted on their website. We stayed at Fiddler's Pond--kids (3 and 5) loved the streams and ponds outside our room. Lots to...More

Not thrilled with out stay at the Homestead. We stayed in Fiddlers Pond, the room was fine and the staff was pleasant. The letdown for our family was the lack of family dining options. As a family friendly resort there is a lack of dining...More

Honestly, it's been painful for me to read these reviews of a place I so dearly love. It's hard to understand that others do not see and share the beauty, charm, and efforts of The Homestead. We have been coming for 20 years and have...More
