Virginia’s Homestead Opens Allegheny Springs AttractionJune 20, 2012
The Homestead in Hot Springs, Va., has finalized construction of Allegheny Springs, part one of the resort's multifaceted $25 million transformation. It's the latest addition to more than 30 resort recreational opportunities at The Homestead.
Opened Memorial Day weekend, Allegheny Springs is a two-acre attraction filled with family-friendly features fueled by water drawn from the Allegheny Mountains. Winding footpaths guide guests to a new family pool and whirlpool surrounded by decking topped with chaise lounges. For children, there’s a sandy beach at the children's pool. Come winter, the family pool will remain open with chaise lounges set upon a stone-face deck warmed by radiant heat.
The Allegheny Springs Grille is the new poolside restaurant and bar serving salads, sandwiches and snacks. Guests will also enjoy drinks from the new menu featuring beer, wine and cocktails, such as the signature "Poolsiders" like Allegheny Breeze and the Homestead Salty Dog or local favorites like Hot Springs Banana, Shenandoah Rum Runner and Mad Mountain Raspberry.
Allegheny Springs will debut a second stage in August with Mountain Rush featuring three 100-foot water slides, a 400-foot lazy river and private cabanas. A charming gazebo will be poised over a babbling brook that feeds the river, will serve as a landmark for the water amusements. In addition, the resort's renovation will continue with enhancements including cascades-style miniature golf, a new spa garden and new dining experiences for 2013.
