We were very privileged this week to host Emmy award-winning Chef Walter Staib who was filming a segment for his Taste of History program that broadcasts on PBS. Chef Staib was able to enjoy the Jefferson Pools before filming at our Casino's fire pit and the hotel's pastry kitchen. Look for the segment to air this summer!

You visit The Homestead for the facility because there isn't much else to do nearby. With that said, they have lots of things to do here. The new pool is fabulous. I enjoyed it just as much as the kids. The only downside was our 5 year-old was not tall enough to go down the water slide. He was very disappointed and has gone down bigger and faster at home and other water parks. We played cricket, putt putt, went to the hot springs, indoor pool, movies, hayride and just relaxed. There is quite a bit to do, but just remember you are at a resort and expect to pay resort prices for everything. We've also skied and ice skated in the winter. These are both small facilities and should not be primary focus of your stay or you'll be disappointed.

Fabulous and Fantastic describe this experience. The beautiful drive to the resort through the mountains of West VA was awesome. The resort itself was more beautiful in person than can be imagined, so make sure and charge your camera batteries. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was exquisite. A tour of the hotel should probably be offered, as it is massive and it can be difficult to navigate. We loved the formal dinner in the evening, with live jazz music. We also loved the buffet breakfast. The activity options in the hotel (indoor pool, game rooms, spa, pool table room) and outside (skeet, golf, walking trails, tennis, lazy river) are endless. Pricing is of course on par with Disney, so plan accordingly, and enjoy spoliing someone special.

The hotel is lovely, in an old-fashioned, southern charm way, as are the rooms. The grounds, setting, and view are beautiful. The pool area is wonderful, with the lazy river and slides incorporated into a luxurious setting for kids and adults. The spa area has a spectacular indoor pool and beautiful spa garden for adults with a warm springs pool. All of the restaurants have great atmosphere - with some variety in style - and good food. Wide variety of activities, and our family really enjoyed the ones that we did - archery, horseback trail ride, gorge hike, and falconry. (Where else would you do falconry!?) I was unsure about the resort wear dress code, but found that it kept folks from wearing sweats and swimsuits all over the hotel, which was kind of nice. Staff were friendly and pleasant throughout the facility. I had to take off a star rating though because everything was overpriced. If you assume that the room rate is including the beautiful facility and setting, that's acceptable. But the hotel tacks on an additional "resort fee" which includes such standards as wi-fi and in room coffee. They include shuttles to activities in this fee, which should be folded into the activities fees, most of which are overpriced anyway - like double what they should be. The food is good, but not as fantastic as the prices would lead you to believe. Again, about twice as much as they should be for much of the menus. There aren't good options for a quick, cheap lunch - especially needed if you have the big buffet breakfast and want to splurge for dinner. The packages aren't a good deal unless you are committed to getting the most expensive options for every thing for every day. For instance, they price out at $30 a person for activities, when the choice of activities ranges from $12-$50. Same differences with food. We had a wonderful vacation in a beautiful resort, and I would recommend the Homestead for families. But I'd suggest to understand, accept, and plan for the pricing before you go. (Also make reservations for activities and dinner at least week before your trip.)

The Homestead is a beautiful place…at least I think it might be when it's not under construction. We chose to spend our 1x/year vacation for 5 days at The HomeStead. Friends told us about all the great restaurants, spa, bowling alley etc etc. When we arrived, we found out that their was MAJOR renovation being done. 3 of the 4 restaurants were closed for renovation or for the season (Easter break). The "spa" was in a make-shift portion of the lower level. They just took sleeping rooms and put in massage tables and hung some sheets over the windows.The bowling alley was closed. We had to wade through construction workers and table saws to get to the pool. Heat in our room was nonexistent for a day (we used hair dryers and turned the shower on HOT to heat the room). This was a major vacation for us. 2 airfares, rental car, etc etc. When we returned home, I sent a letter to the manager. We received a form letter back offering us a free room upgrade (if available) on our next stay. Our displeasure is not that the Hotel was going through renovation - hey, venerable old treasures like The Homestead need to do that. My quibble with them, is that they did not tell us in advance that the Hotel would be under major reconstruction and most amenities would be unavailable. We spent thousands of dollars on this vacation, and the The Holiday Inn Express in Milwaukee would have been a nicer stay.

Drive up appeal: check. Friendly staff: check. Championship golf: check. Stellar food: check. Brand-new Canyon Ranch spa: check. Incredible views of the Appalachian mountains while shooting skeet: check. Optimal place to host a memorable wedding reception: priceless.
