The moment you arrive at The Homestead, a historic five-star resort in the Allegheny Mountains, you will understand why the resort has been enticing visitors for more than 200 years. The columned front porch with white rockers is charming and an invitation to relax.
Poshbrood stayed in a “Landmark Suite” a spectacular 630-square-foot suite with two master bedrooms – one with a king bed and one with two double beds. A spacious living room area features an adjacent porch with sweeping mountain views. We has plenty of space and the whole family loved the screened in porch for reading, games and cocktails.
There are activities for everyone: a luxurious spa, tennis, a shooting club , a spring-fed indoor pool plus outdoor pools, horseback and carriage rides, fly-fishing, falconry lessons, and bowling. Our girls loved the bowling alley and the complimentary afternoon tea. The resort was heaving with families, which was great. Our kids met nice playmates at the Homestead Kids Club for “Kids Night Out” while we had an adult dinner at Sam Snead’s and enjoyed one of the nightly movies in the historic theatre.
This Poshbrood is not an avid golfer but if you are, The Homestead offers three award winning courses. We heard many guests raving about the challenging courses. (We prefer to spa or lay by the pool and can vouch for the excellent facials and massages.)
The Homestead offers many dining options. We enjoyed stuffing ourselves silly at the buffet breakfast in the historic Main Dining Room each morning. We recommend buying the breakfast meal plan – you will not need lunch and can decide what to do for dinner on a daily basis. We found that with the breakfast and afternoon tea, we didn’t eat very much for dinner.
Poshbrood loved the Southern hospitality, luxury and knowing that families have been coming here for family vacations for generations.
