Birthplace of southern hospitality and largest employer in Bath County

set to debut new Canyon Ranch SpaClub in June

May 22, 2013, Hot Springs, Virginia – History, hospitality and opportunity combine at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. Already the largest employer in Bath County, the recently-renovated Allegheny Mountain resort has over 100 job openings to fill as a result of the $25 million transformation including the opening of the new Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Homestead, Allegheny Springs, Mini Cascades and new restaurants.

With the new additions, The Homestead team will total approximately 1,050 dedicated employees. Current openings run the gamut from HVAC Technician to Assistant Controller, Food and Beverage Server to Concierge, Massage Therapist to Cosmetologist, Cook to Stewarding Supervisor – and many more. For more information and detailed job descriptions, please visit or contact The Homestead Human Resources Office at 540-839-3831.

Whatever your professional passion, The Homestead is an ideal place to work. Spread across 3,000 rolling acres in mountainous southwestern Virginia, since opening in 1766 the resort has accommodated endless family vacationers, wellness seekers, business travelers and captains of industry – including 22 U.S. Presidents from George Washington to Bill Clinton. Most noteworthy was Thomas Jefferson, who sojourned to The Homestead for three weeks in 1818 and soaked daily in the spring waters of the Gentleman’s Pool House. The third president’s name lives on at the resort’s Jefferson Pools.

The addition of Canyon Ranch SpaClub at The Homestead is a major development combining the finest attributes of the birthplace of southern hospitality and the pioneer of the modern wellness lifestyle. The 60,000 square foot SpaClub is the first venture by Canyon Ranch in the mid-Atlantic region, and the only Canyon Ranch SpaClub to offer family spa services, including treatments and activities for children and teens.

The SpaClub’s opening will come in tandem with the first full season of Allegheny Springs attraction, a two-acre, family-friendly attraction at The Homestead with pools, water slides, a lazy river, private cabanas and fun for all ages.

Get in on the fun and start a rewarding new career at The Homestead.
