  • Introduction

    Warm Springs Inn, exterior

    One of the most historic and charming County Inns in the country, Warm Springs Inn is located in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains just 5 miles from the historic Homestead Resort. Warm Springs Inn offers 20 rooms with located within three individual buildings on the property. Our hotel rooms have a unique feel and each room has its own private bath. At an elevation of 2,350 feet, this was the site of the very first courthouse and jail serving Bath County, Virginia. The structures date all the way back to 1802! In 1907, the courthouse was abandoned and all of the records were moved to downtown Warm Springs. The remaining building was used as a store while visitors to the community were often housed in the old jail building. As business grew, the site became known as the Maple Court Hotel. Socialites flocked to the area to take advantage of the beautiful views, fresh air and especially the famous warm mineral springs known as the Jefferson Pools which our guests now enjoy directly across the road.

    "Experience complete relaxation of mind and body!"

    Jefferson Pools known at the turn of the century as Warm Sulpher Springs, bubbles up in 2 separate pools at a constant temperature of 98 degrees. They sparkle like champagne and flow at a rate of 1,200 gallons per minute. Historical icons such as Thomas Jefferson and General Robert E. Lee were frequent visitors to the pools, described as one of the most "delightful experiences and perhaps no other part of the globe has such pools of natural warm water!"

    Warm Springs Inn RestaurantChef Giovanni joins the Warm Springs Inn Culinary Team

    We have discovered the magic again with our new Chef "Gio". Gio, born in Italy, considers himself a gourmet Chef as well as a real food advocate. His culinary style has been influenced by both his birth place, Apulia, which is famous for it's traditional Mediterranean diet and Tuscany where he lived most of his life before moving to the USA in 2006. His cuisine is not necessarily Italian, since he loves to cook with every natual ingredient he finds on his way to work (including back yard wild herbs) but there is certainly an imprint of both Italian tradition and food culture. His menu always includes fresh homemade pasta, bread and traditional Italian sauces. In addition, his menu features only scratch-made dishes always using all-natural ingredients with the complete absence of industrially processed ingredients such as artificial flavors, coloring and preservatives. He has been until just recently, the Chef-Patron of "The Bank Food and Drink" restaurant in Pearisburg, Va., which for the last three years had become a destination for Gourmets. His prior experience's include a wine and food consultant in Tuscany, a teacher at The International School of Cooking “Apicius” in Florence, Italy and had an interest in a wine bar / restaurant in Siena, Italy.

    We are very excited to have Chef Gio here at Warm Springs Inn and believe his contribution to the culinary community will be recognized immediately by our patrons. Currently, we are open for dinner Fridays and Saturdays and additional nights will follow.
