Warm Springs Pools

Guests may once again “take the waters” at the historic Warm Springs Pools, part of The Omni Homestead Resort. The bathhouses reopened following the completion of a 14-month, $4 million rehabilitation by Lionberger Construction of Roanoke, Virginia. The Richmond-based architectural firm 3North used the comprehensive 2016 Historic Structures Report as a guide to preserve these iconic structures, while working closely with Omni Hotels & Resorts and the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

Troddenvale at Oakley Farm

Troddenvale produces transparency-driven cider of origin with limited to no alterations. We believe complex cider with aromatics and body can be achieved by showcasing the land and fruit from Virginia, our home.

Troddenvale roughly translates to the “valley road” and is inspired by a lengthy history of visitors traveling to the cradle of Virginia’s great springs region, the Warm Springs Valley. Although this elevated valley remains sparsely populated, its roads are heavily worn by those who have come here seeking its healing waters.

Phillip was introduced to fly fishing by a fellow Veteran who extended an invitation as Phillip was finishing his service in the Marines.  This invitation to fish proved to be life changing for Phillip.  In 2016, He attended Gallatin River Guide School in Bozeman, Montana to learn as much as he could about this amazing sport.   Returning home to Virginia with the goal of sharing this love with others, and helping others find healing in this sport as he had found.  Phillip continues to guide and volunteer with Veterans, and yearly makes a trip to Bozeman to offer his time to Warrior and Quiet Waters.

Lake Moomaw

Lake Moomaw is known for its trout fishery. A layer of cold, oxygenated water lies 15 feet below the surface. It is in this zone that stocked rainbow, brown, and brook trout thrive. Alewives, members of the herring family, were stocked in the early 1980s in order to establish a plentiful food base for both trout and other predators. These small, silvery fish are truly the "backbone" of the lake's sport fishery. The Bath County access offers a marina, camping, and beach swimming.
