My sister and I spent four glorious days in the comfort and serenity of this luxorious resort. As I am passionate about US history, I appreciate all of the attention given to the multi-million dollar reburbishing of this Pennsylvania historic treasure. It would be a good idea to call the hotel to make your reservations since they have several areas and room choices and can explain the options to you. It is very easy to find.....about 10 minutes from the Bedford exit of the turnpike. Our mornings started with a free pot of coffee through the Omni Select Program. This Omni program offers very nice perks! Our room, which was not only beautiful but so very clean and comfortable and easy to live in..... opened up to a beautiful wooden wrap-around porch that faced the mountain opposite the resort. The comfortable rocking chairs and the serene view was just a marvelous way to start our day. The breakfast buffet in the Crystal Room was superb, or you can order from the menu. The service and table settings of linens and silver were wonderful, and the food was beautifully arranged and delicious with a large selection of breakfast items. Our days at the resort were filled with hiking and biking and we traveled ten miles to Shawnee park for kayaking on the lake and biking. The valet will help you load and unload your bikes or if you bring a bike lock they are perfectly safe on a rack at the resort. The golf course looked inviting, but I did not golf on this trip. The spa was just perfect and our treatments were great....the lounge for the spa was just beautiful with a garden running along the outside of the windows, and we sat for atleast an hour enjoying fresh fruit and chilled and hot beverges. We had dinner in the 1796 dining room. It is a steak house with a delicious menu. We ate several lunches and dinners and had cocktails at the Tavern. Simpler in style but still wonderful in service and delicious food. The golf shop and the other boutique stores were very nice, and there is a small "sweet" shop for quick coffees, breakfasts and goodies. Ice cream, too! There are two pools, indoor and outdoor and both are well maintained and very enjoyable and you can swim inside 24 hours. There is a fire pit outside the Tavern which is lit every night, and people sit around the fire and have cocktails and just relax. The atmosphere at the resort was quiet and refined and felt so very safe. It is a large property so it always seemed so private and relaxing. The staff was superb, so very friendly and so eager to make our stay just perfect. All you have to do is Ask if you want something or need something and someone will be glad to help you. This is defintely a marvelous resort, and Omni has done a great job of offering a pleasant experience for those who want to be pampered and enjoy the outdoors in a relaxing but not formal atmosphere. One tip: In the summer, the air conditioning in the main building of the resort was very, very cold.....and although most of the time it is just a passage way to another area....if you want to enjoy that part of the hotel..be aware that you need a light jacket or sweater. Your room temperature is easily adjusted to however you like it. If you are looking for a "budget" hotel, this is not for you....but the Bedford Hotel is worth the expensive. Enjoy!
