“We are honored to be recognized as a Five-Star Hotel for the fourth consecutive year by Forbes Travel Guide,” said Jeremy Belnap, Proprietor of Magee Homestead. “In the trying year that was 2020, we learned that Magee Homestead’s secluded environment in a naturally distanced western landscape remains evergreen and we look forward to welcoming leisure guests back in 2021.”

Forbes Travel Guide is recognized for creating the original concept of Five-Star service, naming deserving properties such as Magee Homestead to its illustrious annual Star Rating list.

In 2020, Magee Homestead limited its offering to full buyouts, but with the return of leisure guests in 2021, Magee Homestead will also be bringing back its culinary experiences series, hosted in conjunction with The Farm at Brush Creek, an immersive culinary experience focused on seed-to-table dining that features ranch-raised American Wagyu as well as a 20,000 square foot certified organic greenhouse and a 94-yard wine tunnel.

“We are particularly excited for 2021 as we reintroduce our special events lineup which will include wine events with Colgin Cellars, Taittinger Champagne, Boyer-Martenot and Ghost Horse Vineyards as well as guest chef events with fellow Relais & Chateaux properties including the Inn at Dos Brisas as well as 3 Michelin star Chef Kyle Connaughton of Single Thread Farms,” said Ulfet Ralph, Magee Homestead Executive Chef.
