Midway Boasting garden views, Homestead Resort offers accommodation with a terrace or a balcony, around 1.7 km from The St. Regis Beach. also offers a break from everyday life. Director of Sales and Marketing Jamie Leatham says the newly renovated property is synonymous with luxury. Established in 1886, this charming property has evolved into an idyllic destination for corporate retreats, weddings and social events, attracting visitors from near and far.

Homestead's corporate clientele comes from a variety of industries, and prominent organizations such as Smith's Food and Drug come here each year for fundraising events. This intimate property includes only 123 rooms, ensuring personalized attention and a sense of exclusivity for each event.

The natural beauty makes the place even more attractive. According to Leatham, the site has a natural hot spring that is a pleasant 35 degrees all year round. This is an experience that combines relaxation with adventure, as guests can even dive into the depths of the crater.

Perhaps the property's greatest asset is its proximity to Wasatch Mountain State Park. Leatham says this prime location allows guests to hike, bike and ATV while experiencing the vastness and depth of nature.

The property itself entices guests with other experiences such as golf, where they can enjoy fresh air while socializing with colleagues. After a busy and busy day, Leatham says guests can look forward to Homestead's blend of rustic elegance and modern comfort. This is reflected in the individual cottage-style accommodations scattered throughout the property. Unlike traditional hotels, each cottage offers guests the feeling of a private retreat, complete with porches for moments of tranquility.

“Our accommodations are in small, individual cottages on the property,” says Leatham. “We don't have a big hotel; it's not traditional at all. Instead [rooms are] in small huts. A hut can have six rooms, each [with its] private room, bathroom and everything like a normal hotel room – only cuter. Everyone has a veranda. This gives the property a retreat feel rather than a corporate feel.”

Leatham says this facility is popular with groups because the venue allows for team building but also privacy. The facility offers several meeting rooms, all of which have natural light, built-in credenzas, AV equipment, beautiful lighting and decor.

While trends in corporate outings continue to evolve, Leatham says Homestead is still at the forefront. In recent years, the trend has evolved toward experiential outings with an emphasis on outdoor activities and themed events. From camping adventures to outdoor movie nights, Leatham says her team intentionally caters to different preferences to provide unforgettable experiences for everyone.

Looking ahead, Leatham shares the owner's intention to expand the resort's offerings, including a full-service spa, luxury pools with natural hot spring water and Marriott Autograph designation by 2026. These developments aim to enhance the guest experience while appealing to a wider audience.
