Find the best place to stay — Hot Springs

It's all in the name

The tiny town of Hot Springs, located just southwest of Warm Springs on Route 220, holds several important and historic resorts. Thomas Bullitt was the first to recognize the springs potential and built an inn in the mid-18th century. Over the years, more have expanded and followed suit, and the town is now getaway destination for many. Stay in one of the Hot Springs vacation rentals, and you can not only enjoy the natural phenomena which gave the town its name, but also numerous outdoor activities from golf to horseback riding.

Saddle up to ride through the fertile valleys

Whichever season you decide to book up your Hot Springs vacation rental, there's always an outdoor activity to take part in. During the spring and summer months, you can lace up your boots to walk along the trails which meander through the mountains or saddle up to gallop through the fertile valleys. Don't be put off in winter, there's much to do from ice skating across frozen lakes to cross-country skiing. For an introduction to adrenaline inducing winter sports, be sure to rent a snowmobile to race through the forested countryside.

A big draw for US presidents

The Omni Homestead Resort is one of the oldest in the town and over the years since its inception it has opened its doors to dozens of United States presidents including Thomas Jefferson. It's easily reached from your Hot Springs vacation rental, and though there are countless opportunities for outdoor activity among the 2,300 acres of Virginia countryside, its biggest draws are the hot springs which flow into the building and are used for the mineral spa. The young, and young at heart, will love the vast water park including slides, a lazy river and a sandy beach.

Open for business, all year round

Hot Springs and the rest of Bath County enjoys more than 200 days of sunshine each year. If you are lucky enough to nab a Hot Springs vacation rental during spring and summer, you can expect long, sunny and warm days best used for outdoor activities in the Virginia countryside. As the cooler months of fall begin to creep in, the forests come alive with colors, and the hot natural springs nearby become even more appealing. The snowy flurries between December and February create a winter wonderland, but just remember to wrap up warm.

Heaps of countryside to explore

The nearby George Washington and Jefferson National Forests form a vast, lush landscape that makes up part of the Appalachian Mountains and has dozens of tree species and thousands of herbaceous plants. While hiking through the parks or camping overnight, keep an eye out for the formidable wildlife, which may include the odd black bear or 2. That's certainly not all though. Playful otters float down the rivers, while bald eagles circle overhead. White-tailed deer are common, as are nocturnal bobcats which roam along the ridgetops. A visit is never a disappointment.
