The art of gardening——under the big roof

by

Mountain is rich of soil and much more diversity of plants and thus it is not surprising we go to mountain to seek for “historical” plants such as the “sibling” of tamed vegetable in our back yard. We went to a hike in Allegheny mountain.

Nestled amidst the breathtaking scenery of Virginia’s Allegheny Mountains, only minutes from George Washington National Forest, our National Historic Landmark luxury resort is located in Hot Springs, VA is accessible by auto, air or train. Only 70 miles from Roanoke Regional Airport and 30 minutes from Amtrak in Clifton Forge. Transportation Service to and from the Roanoke Regional Airport, surrounding airports and Amtrak can be arranged by calling The Homestead Activities Department at 800-838-1766, option 4. Advanced reservations required. If you need transportation inside of three days of your arrival or departure, please call The Homestead Transportation Department directly at 540-839-7711. Start planning your escape to this Virginia national forest resort today!
