Restaurants near The Homestead?
Hoping that this is the right board... Planning a girls' weekend at The Homestead in Hot Springs, VA, and I'm looking for dining options off the compound. Anyone explored this area? Know of any local gems?
Yep. I've been to a convention there each spring. We found the Water Wheel restaurant a few miles north (in "downtown" Warm Springs I think) to be a wonderful experience at dinner and again on Sunday for brunch. Don't miss a trip down to their wine cellar.
We also ate at John's which was highly recommended, but it was only so-so and not a good value.
There is very little right in Hot Springs that is not hotel-owned. There was a burger joint across the road and a Subway deli.
Thanks for asking! We lost my wife in a car accident a couple of months ago and remembering good times at the Water Wheel brings back nice memories.
The Homestead doesn't have a lot around it. We were there for a wedding and couldn't find a lot nearby. I guess that is part of the charm. I do recommend a trip to the bowling alley. After all the spa stuff it's good to be a little active!
If you have a car -- i presume you will _ drive the 45 minutes back to Staunton and eat at teh Staunton Grocery. Fantastic.
And make sure you soak in the historic springs in town. Wonderful.
