Starting the Holiday Season at The Omni Homestead Resort in Virginia


We just had to share this awesome Holiday video from the great people at The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, Virginia. I had to chuckle as I watched how they got the Christmas tree into the main hall. My family and I struggle to do the same thing but on a MUCH SMALLER SCALE! Check it out.

The Homestead Resort is older than the United States. Built in 1766, this elegant iconic resort on 2,000 acres of grounds has hosted 23 U.S. presidents. It’s 16 miles from Lake Moomaw and 18 miles from George Washington National Forest.

Virginia is home to many, luxury resorts and The Omni Homestead Resort is ranked at or near the top for long-time fans and third-party services alike.

Airy, refined rooms offer flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers; some add fireplaces. Suites have separate living rooms and private porches.

A resort fee covers Wi-Fi, a resort shuttle and nightly movies, as well as access to a fitness center, an indoor pool and a water park. Dining options include a formal restaurant, a casual grill, a pub and a bar. There are tennis courts, 2 championship golf courses and lawn games, plus a spa, hot springs pools and a game room.

Of Course Here at we are ALL about the Skiing and Snowboarding…
