Your Perfect Summertime Getaway is in Hot Springs, VA

If you’re looking for a getaway this summer, the Homestead Preserve is an ideal choice. Nestled among the Allegheny Mountains in Warm Springs, VA, the Preserve boasts beautiful accommodations with a host of guest amenities, as well as proximity to local activities.

The area around the Homestead has plenty to offer the summertime visitor. Here you can hike some amazing trails, ride horses or fish on the Jackson River. If playing a round of golf is what you crave, visit the Homestead Old Course, one of the first tees in the United States still in use.

The area is also famous for their historic Jefferson Pools, two hot or “thermal” springs. These natural springs maintain a higher temperature than that of the surrounding air, as the groundwater has been geothermically heated by the Earth’s crust before reaching the surface. Known for their relaxing and healing properties, people have been bathing in these springs for over a century. Their warm temperature allows natural minerals to be more easily dissolved into the water, and the healing minerals are then absorbed into the bather’s skin.

Finally, guests of the Homestead also have access to the Old Dairy Community Center, with its seasonal outdoor pool, sauna, fitness center, whirlpool and game room. If you’re in need of a bit of pampering, there’s also a spa that offers massage, manicures and pedicures.
