Yes, the structures were in poor repair, but it seemed that the water was dirty. I thought that the flow would keep it clean and blamed the smell on the sulfur but we were all sick for two weeks after. Do you go there to...More

What is a trip to the Warm Springs VA area without a soak in the Jefferson Pools. We always check on the pool schedule before making reservations for our hotel. And speaking of reservations, you are now required to make reservations for the Jefferson Pools...More

The Jefferson Pools have been closed until further notice by orders of Bath County. Hopefully renovations will finally be done and the place not just abandoned. I love this place but gave it one star just for being closed.

Experience the springs at the Jefferson Pools in a natural pool. The Homestead has shuttles from the resort to the pools and reservations are required. The buildings are historic but also decrepit. I wish the Homestead would spend some money to maintain the structures.

The history of this place is marvelous. The build are still as they were when built. The Ladies pool house is used for Coed bathing. It has wonderful small area where a flow of water come out of a pipe you can sit under.

I read the reviews ahead of time and was truly prepared for the state of disrepair the facility is in. I went into the "men's pool" which is deeper than the women's. I grabbed a floaty and just relaxed in the warm water, my head...More

This place looks like it probably did back when Jefferson was there. It's funky, the soak is a historical trip back in time. The changing area is less than acceptable, but it gets the job done. It needs a lot of TLC but was told...More
