Late Autumn Charm
Fort Lewis Lodge fireplace
Autumn is a magical time to be in Bath County. Yes, even after the foliage has fallen from the trees. The leaves may have gone, but the eternal beauty of the unspoiled mountain landscape remains. We call it the peaceful season — that period between leaf peeping and winter wonderland. The brisk weather is ideal for a walk in the woods, followed by a drink by the fireplace.

The Omni Homestead Resort exterior renovations 2022
In 2021, The Omni Homestead Resort announced a major $120 million dollar renovation to the historic property in Hot Springs. The progress is clearly visible as façade improvements were among the first tasks completed. Exterior work is now focused on the iconic tower.

Phase Two is now underway with indoor improvements taking place in guest rooms, dining facilities, the onsite theater and all meeting rooms. In addition, a new 72,000 square foot event venue is being constructed. The 18-month project is expected to be complete by Spring 2023.

Enjoy a Spa Day
Homestead Warm Spring Pools rendering
Bath County owes its popularity as a destination to the presence of the natural mineral springs. Visitors traveled here by horseback and covered wagon to be rejuvenated in the Warm Springs Pools, which are currently being restored and scheduled to open in late December. Centuries later, the spa experiences in the county are as varied and elegant as you’d expect. Next time you spend a few days in Bath County, make sure one of them is a spa day.
