This historic 220-room retreat in the Allegheny Mountains has been a hotspot since 1806, when the original hotel was built as a restorative destination for city folk wanting to “take the waters.” A major renovation several years ago brought the grande dame up to date, with state-of-the-art technology and refreshed interiors. Guests can choose from classic (though recently restored) rooms in the historic wing or more contemporary digs in the spa wing. Dine in posh surrounds at the 1796 Room and Crystal Room, or keep things more casual over craft brews in the Frontier Tavern.
In the Area
While there are plenty of diversions on-property, the surrounding mountains offer opportunities for outdoor pursuits like horseback riding with Green Ridge Ranch, located an hour’s drive from the resort. Omni can arrange kayaks and a guide to explore nearby Shawnee Lake; on the way home, sample some local wines from Briar Valley Winery, on Bedford’s main street, which specializes in European varietals like Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Franc, and Lemberger.
How to Get There
What an amazing place. The history within this place is amazing. The lounge is warm and friendly. The rooms are beautiful and relaxing. If you need a weekend getaway this is the place to go to rejuvenate yourself.
Reason I said short stay is because that is all anyone that it on a budget can afford. But saying this I am not taking anything away from this resort. It is a fabulous looking property with a antique look to it. Beautiful artifacts in side the door a A plus swimming pool. Outstanding cleanliness but could use a microwave and a mini fridge. I did notice a considerable amount of families with children and at many times were very noisy. One other issue if you are on the second floor, you can hear doors slamming all over the place and noise coming from other rooms. Another problem that I observed, although the Valet service tried their hardest but at time it was difficult to keep up with the demand. Just my preference, I am not a Valet person, if I want to get my car, I want it. Again not their fault I just don't like Valet service. Would I recommend this hotel? Yes a fabulous property but have your wallet ready.

Situated between DC and NW Pa this is our favorite stop. Service is excellent and the charm and history is what is so special. Please
Keep this property in the pristine condition it deserves! We have noticed the attention to detail has slipped in the past few years...cleanliness of rooms and general appearance of the property.
I love this Omni Resort! When I am in need of some pampering and relaxation, this is my favorite destination. I remember when this beautiful resort stood empty and in need of extensive repair, I often wondered what was like in it's heyday. The transformation of this historical property was amazing and welcome. Book the tour and see for yourself how this property began, the historical events that took place here and how it became THEE premiere destination it is today.
