The Homestead, one of the country's leading historic resorts and a National Historic Landmark, has been providing luxuriously appointed resort accommodations to Presidents, Princes, and sports enthusiasts alike since its founding in 1766. Easter weekend is a big deal at The Homestead, with activities such as crafts, magic shows, caricatures, balloon animals, photos with the Easter Bunny, and even Saturday afternoon tea with the Easter Bunny.
On Sunday, The Homestead hosts the largest Easter Egg hunt in Virginia, with over 4,000 eggs hidden! One lucky child will find the Golden Egg, and will receive a complimentary one-night stay including breakfast and dinner for a family of four.
Adults can enjoy such activities as a golf clinic, Allegheny Springs Winter Wonderland Ice Skating & Swimming, and a Ballroom dance clinic.
