“Remarkable mountain resort with 5 Star activities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Very impressive really a fantastic getaway with an amazing amount of activities to choose from. Super for families and couples alike. A well done blend of upscale and comfort with ample opportunity for privacy when desired. Highly recommended.

Excellent weekend! Can't wait to return! We usually visit The Homestead in Feb. but we are definitely planning to bring the whole family for a long weekend next summer! There is so much for children to do as well as adults. We are thrilled with the excellent changes that the Omni Resort has made. My only recommendation would be to change tea hour to 4-5pm. We missed it on the day of arrival and it rushed us on Sat. of our stay.

We chose The Homestead for our 24th wedding anniversary. We had stopped there for lunch many years ago and thought it would be a nice place for a special occasion. Although showing it's age somewhat, The Homestead is a grand hotel/resort in a beautiful location. We have also stayed at the Greenbriar, nearby in WV. The two resorts are very similar, grand old ladies offering lots of activities, excellent dining, and ambiance. The history tour is recommended. The Lobby Bar is a beautiful location for pre dinner cocktails.

This hotel is beautiful for what it is. The staff however leaves a lot to be desired. I have to say this coming off of a fabulous July 4th at The sanctuary at Kiawah last year. The pool is fantastic for kids - although they close the fun part at 6pm. We rented cabanas at the pool both days ($225/day) - 9am- 6pm. When we got there at 9:30 the first day, no one was there to tell us which cabana we had. By 10:30, they had their act together somewhat and told is where ours was, brought us water and fruit and did well for the rest of the day. The second day, we anticipated that and got there at 10am. No fruit - water brought over at 10:45. Disappointing. All of the bartenders seem to have quite the snippy attitude - that is if you can get their attention. The rooms are fine, but NOTHING to write home about. The food is really good (except at the pool). We did however reserve Sam Sneed's the first night which is not on campus. After the bartender in the hotel insisted that I purchase a 9oz pour of KJ 15 min before dinner and said I could take it with - as soon as I walked in the restaurant with it they said it was not permitted. Lots of little things gone wrong. Right server/attendant makes all the difference. Just be prepared. The spa is nice, but the service there isn't fabulous either.

This is a beautiful old hotel hidden away in the mountains of Virginia. The hotel and the scenery are spectacular, and there is so much to do for families with children of any age. I can't wait to go back!

Elegant, cool old hotel. Great food and drink on property, though expensive and if we stayed longer we would venture off the resort. Hiked some great, and tough trails, and husband mountain biked some really steep roads, and the wider trails. Amazing nature and views around the resort. I did a morning in the spa and had a very good mud wrap and massage, top quality. The spa includes free access to the unique "Thermal Suite" and absolutely lovely outdoor "Spa Garden" with an hour's treatment, really maximizing the experience. And the spa building is both historical and beautifully modernized.

This would be a great spot for a family reunion, older couples, a quiet getaway, and families with younger kids (the pool is SO cool for kids). Maybe not such a a great spot for teens, unless they are the cool sort who will hike, shoot bow & arrow, and try falconry (actually - teens might really like it!) Definitely not for the 20 something Club crowd...

My recent stay at The Homestead was somewhat disappointing as I expected to be staying at my old familiar place. It has changed and is not as good as it used to be in many ways - but it is better in some. True some interior rooms in the old section have been updated and there have been cosmetic changes. Still the hotel is not the value and isn't as classy as it was previously. The new Spa is absolutely gorgeous but is only available to a guest if you have a booked service for that day. Otherwise there's a $40 per day fee to use. Cheesy policy. Also - you now pay a $10.00 per day fee to park your car. Really? It feels as though there are just too many ways to get another dollar from you. The hotel is now owned by Omni.
