The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia Embarks on $25 Million

Transformation

HOT SPRINGS, Va., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Homestead,

America's premier mountain resort for 200-plus years, is embarking on

a $25 million transformation that will take the Hot Springs, Virginia

resort to a new level. Dramatic enhancements will excite a new

generation of travelers while impressing returning clientele. The

transformation will be completed in Summer 2012.

The Homestead has hosted 22 U.S. Presidents. None made a greater

impact than Thomas Jefferson, who enjoyed the ritual "taking of the

waters" while visiting in the 1800s. While those waters still flow,

the resort will provide additional opportunities to experience

restorative natural waters as Jefferson did.

New Spa and Wellness Center The new Spa and Wellness Center will be

world-class, offering a serene setting, calming interiors, and a

private outdoor sanctuary enveloping fresh air and mountain beauty.

The spa will integrate geothermal springs to present modern

experiences for "taking of the waters."

New treatments, wellness programs, classes and more will inspire and

nourish the soul. Signature offerings and services will be customized

to suit personal needs. New features including 29 renovated treatment

rooms and an inspiring design will encourage relaxation, while a new

fitness center will offer cutting-edge cardiovascular and resistance

equipment.

A tranquil spa garden will be open year round as a secluded

adults-only refuge that utilizes indigenous hot springs. Walking paths

warmed by radiant heat will lead to a therapeutic geothermal mineral

bath and river reflexology bed. Additionally, guests will be able to

relax in winterized poolside cabanas and in an outdoor sauna and

whirlpool.

Family Adventure at Allegheny Springs The transformation will

introduceAllegheny Springs, a two-acre attraction with family-friendly

features with water from the Alleghenies. In summer, all ages will

enjoy Mountain Rush, with three 100-foot water slides and a 400-foot

lazy river. A charming gazebo, winding footpaths, separate family pool

and a sandy beach will be surrounded by decking with chaise lounges.

Come winter, the family pool will remain open with steamy waters and a

deck warmed by radiant heat.

New Dining Experiences The Homestead is introducing innovative new

restaurants and bars to appeal to the evolving preferences of guests.

The new Jefferson's Grillwill draw inspiration from the nation's first

gourmand with a farm-to-table menu celebrating Virginia's original

farmers and present-day artisans. Hip and upscale, Jefferson's

Grillwill unfold with modern decor, informal and private dining, and

an exhibition kitchen.

The transformation will also see the relocation ofThe Presidents

Lounge as part of the Great Hall. Showcasing historical artifacts and

paintings, the lounge will be the spot to get convivial around the

fireplace. Down the hall, a comfortable new loungewill be wrapped in

wood paneling with wide-screen televisions to spark a lively

atmosphere. Another casual restaurant will be added within Allegheny

Springs.

Cascades-Style Miniature Golf The Homestead is adding to its

championship courses with Mini Cascades, a new 18-hole miniature golf

course inspired by the renowned Cascades Course. Mini Cascades will be

enjoyable for guests of all abilities.
