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
We stayed three days and two nights at this beautiful hotel. The rooms were a perfect blend of modern and historical. Even though the weather was rainy we still had a great time. The food was amazing especially the brunch. The golf course was challenging but challenging
We decided to take trip to visit Omni Bedford Springs Resort, when you arrive you can perceive the quality and impecable service of this great place. We enjoyed every minute of our experience. And the restaurant 1796 room was Delicious
Easy ride from Pittsburgh and if you want a quick getaway, this is a good choice! Staff is friendly and efficient. The pools are fantastic. You can do as much or as little as you would like on property. The Spa is amazing!
