We took advantage of a great Groupon deal and spent 2 night at the resort. When I made the reservation I was hoping to take our golf clubs but we took our skis instead. The resort is a wonderful "old style" resort and very relaxing. We enjoyed out king size room. Very comfortable and even had 2 walking sticks ready for a hike. All of the public rooms are lovely. There are even puzzles set out that you can stop and see if you can add a few pieces. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a day on the slopes at Blue Knob. It was mid-week so we practically had the place to ourselves. There are some nice long cruising trails. Had planned to explore Bedford some more but ended up staying at the resort except for the ski day. Had dinner the first night in the Tavern. Service was good. Had the special appetizer which was Washington state cheeses. My husband had the steak frites and was very happy. All cooked to perfection. I had the salmon; which they said was Atlantic wild when I asked but sure tasted farm raised to me. We had breakfast both mornings in the dining room. There is a very large buffet for $22 and it also has plated and served items such as eggs benedict. Each morning Perry came to the table to check on the breakfast he had prepared. We spent some time in the pool which is lovely but a little on the cool side for an indoor pool. Now here is where the "but" comes in, we had dinner the second night at 1796 Room. The room is attractively decorated but then the busboy comes by and sprays a nearby table while you are trying to eat. The shrimp cocktail was beautifully presented and my husband enjoyed it, then his medium lamb was bloody rare. I ordered the "baby" iceberg wedge which was a large whole head of iceberg. It was just another wedge salad. I had shrimp scampi and it was the most tasteless shrimp dish I've ever had. It was served with butter sauce that was barely warm. The final straw was the crème brulee which was stone cold. They said that's the way they get it from their vendor. I suggested they at least try to fake people out and run it under the broiler to warm the sugar. I felt it was really over priced for the quality of the food. If you say you are 4 star and charge like you are 4 star then you NEED to be 4 star.
