The Omni Homestead Resort

Hot Springs, Virginia

By Roger Cox, Editor

The Omni Homestead, Hot Springs, Virginia

Beautifully situated on 3,000 acres in the Allegheny Mountains of Virginia, the Homestead was founded in 1766 when a rustic lodge was built around its hot springs pools. More than a century later, renowned financier J. Pierpont Morgan bought it and built the red-brick-and-white-steepled Federalist style hotel that remains the resort's centerpiece and has been declared a National Historic Landmark. Today the resort's attractions go well beyond the hot springs—two of them—to include two 18-hole golf courses, four clay tennis courts, a spa and fitness center, a water park with a lazy river and a beach, a kids' club, horseback riding, a gun club, Orvis-trained fishing guides, and more.

Clay Robinson, the resort's tennis director, makes the most of the four courts. A USPTA-certified pro, he has spent more than 25 years running programs at clubs and resorts, among them the well-known McCormack-Nagelson Tennis Center in Williamsburg, Virginia and Wintergreen Resort in Wintergreen, Virginia, where he founded the Wintergreen Resort Tennis Academy. At the Homestead, his Omni Homestead Tennis Academy specializes in custom-designing programs for groups and teams, while casual guests can look forward to daily clinics from Tuesday through Saturday in summer and afternoon junior clinics in three age divisions from 4 to 17. Tennis is also an element in the resort's summer fun camp for kids ages 6 to 12.
