About the Property
Wonderful views, pet friendly, 1 mile up the mountain from Omni Homestead Resort
This luxurious 6000 sq. foot family vacation home is located just 1 mile up the mountain road, past the ski slopes, from the famous Omni Homestead Resort in Virginia's beautiful Bath County. The Homestead Preserve, a private residential conservation community, is bordered by the Nature Conservancy's Warm Springs Mountain Preserve and the George Washington National Forest, and offers an abundance of outdoor adventures and gorgeous mountain vistas. Our Old Dairy Community Center provides exclusive enjoyment of a large outdoor pool, fitness facility, indoor hot tub and sauna, great room with fireplace and billiards, meeting rooms and boarding stables. Residents also enjoy membership in The Omni Homestead Golf and Tennis Club which provides privileges and social activities at the resort.
As a guest, your rental will include unlimited access to The Homestead Preserve Old Dairy Community Center. This historic complex includes a lovely outdoor swimming pool, indoor hot tub, sauna, fitness room, and a great room with a fireplace and pool table. The Omni Homestead is celebrating the resort's 250th birthday every day in 2016 with special activities and birthday cake at tea time! You have access to The Old Course and Cascades golf courses, and also the spa at the resort, and can make advance reservations for either. You may attend afternoon tea which is offered in the main lobby daily between 3-4. You can also take advantage of nightly movies and the hotel's history tour. For other activities and dining, the Omni policy is that non-hotel guests may make day-of reservations through the concierge. Please do this early in the morning, as available space tends to fill up quickly. The Omni Homestead Resort is a short drive or easy 1 mile walk from Mountain House, while the Old Dairy is 5 miles away in Warm Springs on Route 220.
'Mountain House" in The Homestead Preserve provides a serene and peaceful setting to rejuvenate, relax, and reconnect - the perfect vacation!
Mountain House was named by the owner's young granddaughters, who enjoy a break from city life during their frequent visits. The house was completed in 2011, and has 6000 square feet of living space. Built on a slope, what looks like a modest cottage from the front is actually 3 levels of luxury living with five spacious bedrooms and five and a half baths, all decorated with the owner's personal fine furnishings and artwork.
The master wing includes a piano study, screened morning porch, bedroom with gas fireplace, walk-in closet with desk, double sink vanity, a huge Italian terra-cotta tiled shower for two and a clawfoot soaking tub.
The attached two car garage provides protection during inclement weather. A separate entrance into the mud room/laundry area flows through the butler's pantry into the island kitchen and open dining area with seating for 10-12. This connects to the lovely, large screened-in main porch, which has additional dining space for 6 and a beautiful natural stone wood- burning fireplace. The porch is a wonderful gathering place to enjoy the evening breeze, a warming fire, and mountain views! The main level great room has a 22' ceiling open to the second level, and features a majestic floor-to-ceiling stone wood-burning fireplace.
The second level has 2 queen bedrooms, one with in-suite bath, and a large kids' bunkroom with 3 twins and full-size crib. The hall bath has double sinks, and a separate area for tub and toilet. A library loft serves as a comfortable spot for reading, watching TV, or working out on the Landice treadmill and Lifecycle recumbent bike. There is a double size Futon in the loft.
The walk-out lower level has a cozy family room with a gas fireplace, big screen TV and Olhausen pool table. A charming double bedroom and hall bath completes the space. The bath features a wildlife theme with tiles, cabinet knobs, and photographs of animals native to the Alleghany mountains!
The luxury appointments - Kohler and Toto bath fixtures, Hubbardton Forge lighting, solid oak dark stained hardwood flooring, fully equipped Chef's gourmet kitchen with Kitchen Aid Architect Series appliances and a dual-fuel 6-burner Electrolux pro range, heirloom oriental rugs, Casablanca and Hunter ceiling fans, comfy leather sofas, Woodard porch furniture, and fine quality linens - make Mountain House an extremely comfortable and relaxing vacation retreat.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Hello, and welcome! I am so happy to share my lovely mountain property with you and hope you will visit for an incredible vacation in a very quiet, serene, luxurious and comfortable family home. I am a retired executive from the food service industry, and live part time in Hot Springs and the rest in Northern Virginia. I have a large family of 4 adult children and 6 young grandkids, 2 dogs - and Mountain House is the perfect setting for us all to get together and relax. I purchased my lot in the Homestead Preserve after searching lots of vacation properties along the East Coast. I was taken with the conservation aspects of the development, the club membership at the Omni Homestead Golf and Tennis with access to all hotel amenities, and the wonderful mountain views on the property and around beautiful Bath County. (There are no traffic lights in Hot Springs - only stop signs!!! A welcome respite from the congestion in NVA). I selected a Southern Living house plan and began construction in early 2009. It was a challenge to build on such a sloping and wooded site, but it has been a rewarding and fun experience. I have really enjoyed planning the landscaping around the property and watching it develop over the past few years. The house is just spectacular, and has a wonderful floor plan for my large family. Plenty of space for everyone, with lots of memorable evenings spent on the porch with the fire going - enjoying conversation and smores! There are so many fun activities available at the resort, there is always something for all ages to enjoy. We especially love the holiday activities - our favorites are the hotel Christmas tree lighting ceremony and the summer holiday BBQ picnics on the lawn with live music and fireworks! The Homestead is truly a 4 season resort! My favorite spot at Mountain House - cocktail hour out on the porch, taking in sunsets and the mountains; or walking our dogs, Maddie and Knuff, on one of the many trails winding thru the Preserve.
Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs, VA, USA:
Spectacular mountain views, serene and quiet location, beautiful Bath County countryside, golf and tennis club membership at Omni Homestead with full array of activities and dining for entire family. Old fashioned, peaceful family time away from busy urban lives!
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Acomodates a large family or multi-couples beautifully! Children and (2) dogs welcome! Unlimited guest privileges at The Old Dairy Community Center (5 miles); and some activities available at the Omni Homestead Resort (1 mile) - (fees may apply and day-of reservations through hotel concierge required).
