January 2024 Business of the Month: Homestead Resort
Homestead Resort, a historic Utah gem, has always been a place of warm hospitality since its establishment in 1886 by Fannie and Simon Schneitter. Over the years, this iconic resort evolved while maintaining its rich history and commitment to providing a unique and approachable luxury experience. Starting in 2020, Homestead unveiled a series of exciting renovations and additions that helped usher the resort property into a new era of experiences for guests and the community.
We spoke with Wesley Biutanaseva, General Manager at Homestead Resort, about the property and what’s to come. Wes joined the property in 2021, coming from a deep and experienced background in travel, hospitality, and lodging around the world. Wes said he is so proud to work for a property with a strong legacy where owners are focused on preserving the property as much as possible while still making major investments and improvements for guests.
Homestead Resort is in the midst of significant transformations that began in 2020, totaling over $60 million in financial investments for its renovations. Major highlights include the grand opening of The Milk House in 2022 and recent completion of all 123 guest room renovations, fully renovated meeting and event spaces, and opening 1886 Grill & Smokehouse in 2023. Highly anticipated additions for 2024 and 2025 include the renovation of Simon's Restaurant, a new, expansive wedding and event barn, the renovation of the historic Virginia Home, outdoor and year-round pools, a new, full-service spa, and an activity center with indoor pickleball, central location for golf/spa/Crater check-ins, and changing rooms for Crater guests are also in the plans, with a completion target date by the end of 2025. The resort's commitment to maintaining history is evident at this 138-year-old property. The new ownership is dedicated to maintaining the unique charm of the resort. Buildings are removed only if required for structural safety reasons, with a focus on preserving the essence of the property where possible.
Homestead Resort is more than a luxurious getaway; it's also a place where generations come together year after year. The property offers a sincere and welcoming family-friendly atmosphere where team members put the guest first to ensure everyone has a wonderful and memorable stay. The 170-acre resort boasts 11,000 square feet of newly renovated meeting space, making it a highly sought-after venue for events, weddings, and corporate groups.
The resort's location is along the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, close to trails, reservoirs, and a variety of outdoor recreational activities. It strikes a beautiful balance, providing small-town charm with world-class recreation all with quick and easy access to Park City, Salt Lake City, and the airport. Guests escape bustling city life to experience nature, recreation, and luxury in this quiet mountain town.
As the Homestead Resort continues its evolution, it remains a testament to the seamless integration of tradition and modernity. With a keen eye on preserving history, a commitment to family-friendly luxury, and a dedicated sales team to service group needs, Homestead Resort remains one of Utah’s most notable legacy properties. Whether guests are here for a corporate event, wedding, or a family vacation, the resort aims to cater to everyone’s needs with its range of offerings.
