The Homestead Hotel Review: This National Historic Landmark dates back to 1766 and extends approximately 3,000 acres into the Virginia woods. The property includes three golf courses, horseback riding facilities, 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 an old, country feel. While the tone is historic, the amenities are up-to-date, including cable TV, video games and voicemail. Nice customized touches range from feather pillows to wine glasses. The Homestead's european-style spa draws from the natural hot springs that make this area famous and provides visitors with luxuries such as skin, nail, hair and body treatments. Ever since Thomas Jefferson's 1818 visit to the complex, the Jefferson Pools have attracted travelers. On-site dining options abound, from the formal Dining Room to Sam Snead's Tavern. Children are also catered to, with a menu of activities for the junior set.
