Field Trip with Garden & Gun to The Homestead

On this Wanderlust Wednesday I would like to invite you on a dreamy journey we can take together. I am thrilled to be going on field trip with Garden & Gun to celebrate 250 Years of The Omni Homestead Resort.  

The Homestead in America’s oldest resort and it has a very special place in my heart.  I grew up going to The Homestead many times with my family.  It is a step back in time with genteel traditions and languid history yet it has been modernized in the most apropos of ways with every modern amenity your heart could desire

David DiBenedetto,  Garden & Gun‘s Editor in Chief,  invites you to experience the legendary charm of America’s first resort on its 250th birthday.

This G&G package is available through The Omni Homestead and includes:

Overnight accommodations for two at the resort on Friday, September 9, and Saturday, September 10


Friday evening: Our “welcome party” includes dishes and cocktails from across the South inspired by G&G’s latest New York Times best-selling title,  The Southerner’s Cookbook  plus live music and a fireworks display


Saturday morning: Start with breakfast in the Main Dining Room. Next, enjoy a Waterfall Wellness walk, yoga in the garden or a golf clinic.  Continue your morning exploration outdoors with choice of sporting clays, casting clinics, falconry demonstrations, a Cascades Gorge hike, or a canoe and kayak expedition on the Jackson River in great company. 

*Upon booking package, an Experience Planner will be contacting you to book your desired activities. 


Saturday afternoon: Go on a culinary road trip with Julia Reed through the tastes, sounds, and stories of her latest book,  Julia Reed’s South


Saturday late afternoon: Experience an unforgettable tasting with Preston Van Winkle of the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery.

This is reason enough to attend for you whiskey aficionados. 


Saturday evening: We close off the evening with a progressive game dinner at the scenic and historic Homestead Shooting Club with more very special live music.


Sunday morning: Check-out and enjoy a Southern breakfast

Will you join me on this weekend of lifetime at America’s oldest resort where The Homestead will be rolling out the red carpet and sharing their renowned southern hospitality? 

I sure hope so because I cannot wait for some fun and fellowship.
