This is a wonderful and very important historic site that has been neglected by various corporate owners for decades. The current owner, Omni hotels and resorts, promised over three years ago to restore these venerable buildings, but instead has let them deteriorate to the point...More

This was the only public spring in the area. I've been going for years and while the building is aged, I never felt like I was in real danger. I swam in the pools during a full on thunderstorm one summer and didn't feel like...More

Yes, the structures were in poor repair, but it seemed that the water was dirty. I thought that the flow would keep it clean and blamed the smell on the sulfur but we were all sick for two weeks after. Do you go there to...More

The Jefferson Pools have been closed until further notice by orders of Bath County. Hopefully renovations will finally be done and the place not just abandoned. I love this place but gave it one star just for being closed.

Experience the springs at the Jefferson Pools in a natural pool. The Homestead has shuttles from the resort to the pools and reservations are required. The buildings are historic but also decrepit. I wish the Homestead would spend some money to maintain the structures.

Please renovate these buildings! I get it that Thomas Jefferson was here and that’s neat; however, the buildings have not been renovated or even touched, it looks like, since he was here last, which was about 200 years ago. The Omni Homestead charges $19 for...More
