The Omni Homestead Resort, the iconic one-stop, all-season lifestyle resort situated on more than 2,000 acres in the breath-taking Allegheny Mountains, is now accepting group bookings for its expanded event and meetings capabilities as part of an overall $140 million property-wide renovation, set to be completed by Winter 2023.
A top meeting destination serving Virginia, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Charlotte, Columbus, Nashville, Philadelphia and beyond, The Omni Homestead Resort will add 4,000 square feet of function space through the opening of an all-new, indoor/outdoor Event Pavilion, while enhancing the resort’s existing 72,000 square feet of meeting space with a focus on advanced functionality and refreshed interiors.
“For generations the resort has been a coveted destination for meetings and special events among new and repeat guests alike, and the Event Pavilion will provide a whole new experience to rival anything in the region,” said Mark Spadoni, managing director. “The addition of this extraordinary facility, coupled with the significant enhancements taking place across our meeting rooms, unique theater venue, numerous F&B outlets, and guest rooms, will put us in prime position to meet the booming demand from meetings and incentive travel planners, as well as for special social occasions. Each new development is about restoring a piece of American history, which we cannot wait to share with our guests.”
Slated for completion by late Summer 2023, the Event Pavilion, located at the north end of the Old Course driving range, will serve as an idyllic destination for weddings, reunions, parties, and more, serving up to 225 guests. A bridal suite and dedicated prep kitchens will allow for full-service catering and dynamic indoor/outdoor experiences with sprawling views of the Tower, East, and West wings. Charming brick pathways lead to the structure, which is modeled from the property’s pre-1902 buildings with whitewashed wood-clad walls, stained concrete floors with wood-look detail and lantern-like light fixtures.
By August 2023, the Theater, a quintessential breakout facility for keynote speakers, will receive a classic, yet modern update with the viewing area converted from theater seats to comfortable sofa settees, lounge chairs and side tables ideal for a variety of events from presentations to movie nights to magic shows. New audio-video technology will allow for the transformation of the projection booth into an elegant, signature cocktail bar.
Poised to satisfy the demands of meeting groups, additional renovations to existing spaces will include new carpets, refinishing of the wood floors, fresh paint, wallcoverings, acoustic ceiling tiles, placement of HVAC unites, FF&E and replacement of light fixtures with an architectural and functional focus.
Enhancements touching food and beverage venues include Pioneer Picnic, a fast-casual, family-friendly dining experience, Martha’s Market, the property’s grab-and-go café, The Lobby Bar, which will soon become a new speakeasy-style lounge, Jefferson’s Restaurant and Taproom, Rubino’s at The Cascades, and The Dining Room. A full roster of additional updates includes Façade improvements, Balcony deck work, Guestroom renovations, a new associate housing building and the historic rehabilitation of the Warm Springs Pools (formerly known as the Jefferson Pools).
