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
The customer service was outstanding! Every employee was kind and considerate and it really added a special touch of luxury to our stay. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated and we were pleased with the food options. The spa experience is far better than anything we've ever experienced in the high-end big city spas we frequent. These factors, combined with the beautiful grounds and architecture make for a truly rejuvenating getaway.
I accidentally left a valuable piece of property (an oral appliance for sleep apnea) in my room. The staff were of absolutely no help in recovering it. Even though I new the room where it was located, and the place in that room, they refused to look for it or to allow me to look for it. I know they are not legally responsible for it, but not cooperating in situations like this is not good customer service.
Whether you are local looking for amazing food (breakfast, lunch and dinner), or traveling and looking for the best service and stay, this is a must for your agenda. Friendly staff that makes you feel welcome, and wonderfully created food and beverage selections.
This Resort is a beautiful place to spend a relaxing time. The facilities are well maintained, staff friendly and helpful, and the restaurants are top notch. One can do as little or as much as you want. We enjoyed all the little nooks where we could relax with a book and a drink. We'll be back!
One of the coolest places I ever stayed at. The views, vintage, history, and everything about the place is awesome. The restaurant is very good. Actually both are. And pay for what you get. Great food.
