    Make A Splash At The Homestead Resort's Mountain Rush Water Complex

    Offering unparalleled hospitality and Southern charm, The Homestead sits on 3,000-acres within the Allegheny Mountains of southwestern Virginia. And, now you can enjoy even more fun at The Homestead's Mountain Rush water complex that offers thrills and spills for all ages, including two 100-foot water slides and a 400-foot lazy river.

    While two of the water slides move at a quick pace, the lazy river lets you float through the natural landscape on inner tubes at comfortable speeds. And there's more to enjoy, including a charming spring house poised over a babbling brook that feeds the lazy river; winding footpaths; a separate family pool and whirlpool; and a sandy beach.

    In the winter the family pool remains open for you to relax in the steamy waters or on chaise lounges set upon a stone-face deck warmed by radiant heat, while the water play zone is transformed into an ice skating rink. This means you'll enjoy all the Southern hospitality The Homestead is known for as well as spending time with family and friends soaking up fun in the Mountain Rush water complex.

    Featuring 483 luxurious guest rooms and suites, 72,000 square feet of meeting space, a wide array of fine and casual dining choices, The Homestead is a ideal family friendly getaway destination. There is also a new miniature golf course, the Mini Cascades and the tranquil Jefferson Springs spa garden to enjoy during your getaway.

    Among the other amenities to sample is a  world-class spa, three championship golf courses that include one of the nation's finest mountain courses called The Cascades, the South's first downhill ski area, a 48-stable Equestrian Center and show ring, and one of the top-rated Shooting Clubs as well as many more recreational attractions.
