The Omni Homestead Resort & Spa
The 1766 Homestead is the uncontested grande dame of the Allegheny Mountains, set 180 miles west of Richmond. Here, old Virginia hospitality permeates every aspect of guests’ stays, from the gracious service and haute-traditional cuisine to the ritual of afternoon tea and biscuits in the pillared Great Hall. The 483 rooms and suites also exemplify antebellum elegance, with warm-pastel wallpapers of mauve and rose, roomy upholstered armchairs, thick floral drapes, and sumptuous down featherbeds that would give even the daintiest of southern belles sweet dreams. Plus, some suites have sun porches with rocking chairs—all the better for admiring the property’s misty mountain surroundings.
