The Omni Homestead Resort
A year-round resort nestled in the natural beauty of Virginia's Allegheny Mountains.
This National Historic Landmark dates back to 1766 and extends approximately 3,000 acres into the Virginia woods. The property includes two championship golf courses, and there are tennis courts, horseback riding facilities, a shooting range, trails for hiking and biking, fishing and more --- it's a nature lover's dream come true. Guest rooms here capitalize on the Gregorian architecture and the feel of a luxurious country estate. While the tone is historic, the amenities are modern, including rooms with 42-plasma televisions with cable channels, on-demand movies, video games, phones with voice mail, high-speed Internet access and Keurig coffee machines. Nice customized touches range from feather pillows to wine glasses. The European-style spa draws from the natural hot springs that make this area famous, and the resort also provides luxuries such as skin, nail, hair and body treatments. Ever since Thomas Jefferson's 1818 visit to the complex, the Jefferson Pools have been a popular attraction. On-site dining options abound, from Jefferson’s Bar & Restaurant to Sam Snead's Tavern. Children are also catered to, with a variety of special activities.
