“Awesome family fun for us and our friends!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2010

It was a quick 3hr drive from Richmond to Hot Springs and we all had only 1night and 2 days to soak it all in. We got a great rate on adjoining rooms $215 a night each for 2 double beds. The rooms were not spectacular but slept well, were clean and had nice amenities (flat screen TV with plenty of channels), etc. The view was spectacular on the way there and we were enthralled by how gorgeous the site really is. We did snowtubing for an hour and it was a blast-staff was wonderful throughout. Food at mountain lodge above average for taste. We hit some shops, hit Country Cafe for dinner (local bistro) and then had the most amazing breakfast buffet in the main dr. Overall a wonderful stay! We are planning to come again.

Being a person that grew up with a family that rented houses on the beach or did the economy vacations, The Homestead is a wonderful experience. I have stayed there twice and a third has been reserved. My wife has used the spa. While she would not say it's at the top of her list, the service was wonderful and they do have a wide range of services.
The entire staff is friendly and strives to meet your needs. My 6 year old son had a wonderful time with the events the staff provides to kids. He couldn't have been happier to swim in the morning, have an up close experience with falcons in the afternoon, ice skate in the evening and a couple games of bowling before bed. I have yet to hit the links but will try my luck later this year.
This is place to get away from the crazy business that we live in. There are few places that I can go and recharge my battery. The Homestead is one of those places.

Just completed a long weekend at the Homestead, and it was fantastic. There was a problem with our room when we arrived, but before our bags even made it to the door, Giuseppe at the front desk had fixed everything. The new room had a great view of the snow-capped grounds, a comfy bed that wasn't too soft, and an elegant feel.

I usually don't do "all inclusive" type deals, but given the array of options, it probably would've been a good choice. Great for couples and families who want to have some fun. As other reviewers have mentioned, they really do their best to nickel and dime you, so know that in advance. The only real problem with the grounds is a lack of dining options. It was all pretty generic.

As an important note: do NOT use Google maps for directions. Just reference their web site's directions page.

Nice hotel with friendly staff. I loved being warmed by the fireplaces. The food is a little overpriced at the hotel, but very tasty.

My boyfriend and I went to the Homestead for a last-minute New Year's weekend getaway. We booked very last minute, got a great deal ($100 less than what we have been quoted the week before), and enjoyed a final bit of holiday cheer. The resort was still decked out for the holidays, fireplaces were going in the Great Hall, snow was falling and along with the excellent staff and southern hospitality, it was a magical time and great to start 2010.

We are frequent travelers with high standards and were not disappointed with any aspect of our stay. A couple of areas that could stand improvement, but not show stoppers. 1) Indoor pool is a great option, but it needs to be (more) heated during wintertime - brrrr!. If not possible, perhaps provide some additional heating in pool area or even hot drinks - cider? 2) Pool area needs some attention - was messy and understaffed - floor looks like it could use a touch-up. 3) Provide more options, especially on weekend nights, for later night dining. We enjoyed a casual dinner at the Casino, but we closed the place down at 9PM.

One final comment, as has been noted by others, it is easy to feel that you're being nickled & dimed for many things. I justified this in part that we didn't partake of any type of package that would've provided savings and also that this is a huge, historic site and must be expensive to run. Although we didn't partake of any packages, they do seem to offer some savings.

Overall, a wonderful experience and easy getaway from D.C. area. We've already booked a return trip for Valentine's Day!

We absolutely LOVED the Homestead. It has everything to offer to those that want to relax or be busy all of the time.My husband and I went to the Homestead to relax, have some great food, read some books, and we returned home VERY satisfied. The hotel and its staff were incredible - especially with the snowstorm that occurred while we were there - over 20 inches of snow!! The hotel managed to keep operating; and we had some of the best food and service ever - we travel quite a bit and I have to say that the food and service in 1766 were INCREDIBLE!!! The romance and tradition of the Dining Room (dancing, etc) were terrific too; and even the casual food in the Casino Club was very good. My only complaint was the heater in our room - very noisy. The bed was comfy, room clean, although the bathroom could use a new shower curtain and wall paper! We did get a REALLY terrific room rate - shop for a good rate as you WILL spend money on the food and amenities - but it's all worth it. Don't miss the tea in the Great Hall and visit the spa for some relaxation too! Nice gym also!

We spent 4 nights over Christmas at the Homestead. The resort is in a magnificent area and is truly grand. From the Grand Hall with a 21 ft beautifully decorated tree to the outdoor ice skating rink with a fire pit for roasting marshmallows...it was a perfect place to be for the holidays. We had a jr. suite with a connecting preferred resort room to acommodate 5 of us. It was a perfect setup...right down to the decorated Christmas tree in our living room!
The biggest plus for the resort is the service...people were great and everyone seemed happy to be there. The biggest negative is the constant extra fees for everything! We took my 2 grandchildren (ages 4 and 11/2) bowling for 45 minutes and it cost over $50. The in room movies are ridiculously expensive...$14.50 with tax! Are you kidding me? The spa is very expensive (more than most resorts I've been to) and although the facial I had was good, it wasn't great. My daughter felt the same way about her facial and massage.
All in all we'd love to go back but not sure if we feel it's worth the dollars.
By the way...Santa is at the Homestead...and I mean the REAL Santa!
