A national treasure embarks on its next chapter.

Tucked away on 3,000 acres in Virginia’s Allegheny Mountains, the historic Homestead has played host to groups and visitors since 1766, including 22 presidents. The 483- room property offers 72,000 square feet of meeting and function space as well as an array of on-site activities and amenities, from three championship golf courses to shooting sports and horseback riding.

This summer, the debut of a $25-million transformation will perpetuate the Homestead’s reputation as America’s premier mountain resort. Groups can merge work and play with a lively team-building challenge on the new, 18-hole miniature golf course, or take a relaxing meeting break in the new spa and wellness center’s private outdoor garden and pool. Families who tag along with attendees will love Allegheny Springs, a new, two-acre water attraction with three 100-foot water slides and a 400-foot lazy river. The resort’s culinary offerings are set to expand as well, with the new farm-to-table-themed Jefferson’s Grill and a new lobby bar.
