Donald Ross Trail

Winter Availability! Stately, Pet-friendly luxury home with pool table and WiFi

The Donald Ross Trail is a gorgeous five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath home, located in the Homestead Preserve's Sheep Meadow neighborhood, and is less than a mile from The Homestead Resort. Sleeping ten, this stately brick home provides all the comforts of home and then some.

Get a good night’s rest in one of the four king-sized beds or opt for one of the two twins. Each bedroom has access to a private bath, as well as a covered porch. Gather in the living room for a family movie night and enjoy the warmth of the fireplace. Cooking is not a problem in the gourmet kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances and a spacious island for food prep and mealtime. Dine as a group at the eight-person dining table and then head to the back porch to kick back and enjoy the quiet seclusion of your Hot Springs vacation.

The basement is complete with a flat-screen television, a wet bar, pool table, foosball table, and an integrated sound system that allows music to be played throughout the entire house. The Donald Ross Trail includes Wi-Fi, and we encourage you to bring your four-legged friend, as pets are accommodated for an $100 additional fee.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The house was in great shape and was well suited for my family while we were attending our son and daughter-in-law's wedding.

We had a wonderful time. House was clean and perfect size. It was nice being so close to ski resort , tubing, ice skating and hotel. My dog and I loved our walks. So beautiful there. Can't wait to come back!

The place in Hot Springs was beautiful and well maintained. Rachel and Stacy at Natural Retreats we’re very helpful and accessible.

We loved staying at 33 Donald Ross Trail! The house was beautiful and very convenient to everything. We will definitely be staying here again.

What a fun place. So quiet and surrounded by the forest. There were only four in our group, way more space and amenities then we could use during our short stay.
Airbnb guestAugust 2022
Lovely stay! Our group of 10 (5 couples) stayed at the Donald Ross House for a wedding weekend. The house is beautiful and spacious. We easily prepared dinner in the kitchen, took advantage of the nice weather on the deck, and were within walking distance of the homestead. It was perfect to have 5 bedrooms and 5 separate bathrooms.

What a wonderful place for a getaway! The staff was incredibly attentive and helpful throughout our stay. The home is perched on a quiet road surrounded by beautiful views through the trees. It had comfortable beds, several spacious areas for lounging and gathering.
Airbnb guestJanuary 2022
This place is so close to Homestead, you don’t even have to get on the main road! We were able to cook and hang out very comfortably when we weren’t skeet shooting, skiing, and tubing. I especially love the conversation seating between the kitchen and living room and the wall paper in the stair well. The showers are all huge and beds comfy! My family had a wonderful time here!
Airbnb guestJanuary 2022
Comfortable, well appointed home. Perfect setup for multiple couples, friends or a large family.

This is a beautiful house in an awesome location whether you enjoy hiking, golfing, skiing, fishing or numerous other activities. We love the solitude of the lot and the large porch on this house. It is very well equipped and so pleasant.

Beautiful property. Well maintained. Excellent service. Fair price
ROGERAugust 2021
Home was very comfortable and beautiful. Equipped with everything we could possibly need for cooking. Had a problem with the microwave and Keurig, but Stacy with NR was there within a few hours to replace both. Home was maybe a mile or less from the Homestead, where we enjoyed all of the amenities there. NR was very easy to work with an I would definitely rent this property again.

We loved the Donald Ross Trail house. One of the best stocked kitchens I have ever seen in a rental! We had two families there and easily had room for a third. Plenty of room to spread out. The Natural Retreats staff was also amazing with providing information for us prior to arrival so we could make plans. All in all, a perfect Labor Day Weekend getaway.

Christmas getaway

Our family visited the weekend before Christmas. The house accommodated our family of four couples and four children very well. We enjoyed visiting the Homestead resort for ice skating and photos. The Waterwheel restaurant in Warm Springs was amazing. I highly recommend the house. We enjoyed the pool table and foos ball table. Only complaint was slow internet speed.

This is a well-appointed home and ideal for family or business. We stayed here to avoid staying at The Homestead and dealing with lines and old rooms. Very easy to maneuver back and forth for a conference with the various roads using ski lodge drive or access drive through the golf course. Simply google satellite image your location and using to find your way.

Wish it were home!

This is our second stay at Donald Ross Trail and we love it more each time! Our family enjoys the openness of the living spaces, the basement game/family room, the expansive porches and the private bedrooms. The house feels nestled in the woods and still accessible to the Omni Homestead amenities. It's the perfect retreat!

Beautiful house in the woods.

We visited the Donald Ross House in July 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very high end, in particular the kitchen. Being right next to the Homestead Resort is an enormous perk, as it is a full service hotel with golf, tennis, restaurants and other activities.
MaxdaddyJuly 2017

Amazing home!

My friends and I rented this home for a girls weekend. It's very close to the Homestead resort and had plenty of room for everyone to relax. The sound system was impossible to figure out but that was the only flaw- would definitely recommend to friends!

Fantastic Weekend!

We visited Hot Springs for a girls weekend in January! Natural Retreats and The Donald Ross Trail home were amazing! The house was absolutely wonderful! It is 100% as beautiful as the pictures depict. Aside from a few bumps....basement heat out, water flow low etc, everything was great. The concierge Tiffany was wonderful and attentive. When the heat broke, she was already on top of getting it fixed. We also had personal chef Lyle come in for dinner. Again, fabulous experience. We definitely hope to be back and recommend it to everyone!!

Spacious and well appointed home

Perfect spot for a reunion of group of friends. Lovely home with plenty of space to spread out. Kitchen is well appointed for cooking in. Bedrooms were spacious, comfortable and all had private baths. Beautiful outdoor environment with plenty of activities available.

Beautiful home in a beautiful area

Had our thanksgiving family reunion here. The home was perfect in every respect! Beautiful golf course 5 minutes away, hiking/walking trails right out the door, and wonderful people from Natural Retreats to answer any questions that we had. Couldn't have asked for more! We didn't want to leave and I have to admit, l have missed cooking in that beautiful kitchen!

Everything you need...,and more.

I rented this as part of a corporate retreat. We had multiple rooms at The Homestead and wanted a central place to all gather in the evenings, so we rented this. We also had 8 people staying in the home. It was a perfect spot and the amenities of the home are certainly upscale. Wonderful rental for a large family or corporate retreat.

Nice house

The house was nice. Two of the TVs did not work. You need someone trained on how to work the complex AV set up. It just takes one guest to knock the entire thing off line. We were told in advance that they were not working. We are headed back there next week and hope they get the tvs fixed.
