Four-Star Mountainside Omni Resort Fed by Mineral Springs
In the late 18th century, Dr. John Anderson wanted to reap the curative benefits of the natural hot springs found in the Allegheny Mountains. He purchased a 2,200-acre plot of land and used locally quarried stones to build the lodge that now serves as the foundation of Omni Bedford Springs Resort. Over the years, 10 US presidents have stayed at the hotel, and it's now a National Historic Landmark. It's since undergone a $120 million renovation, but even with its restored wings, a historic golf course, and plush guest rooms, the four-star hotel’s main draw remains its eight mineral springs, some of which feed the heated indoor pool.
Inspired by the Native Americans who first discovered the springs' healing properties, the 30,000-square-foot Springs Eternal Spa uses natural mineral water in every treatment. During Bedford Bath rituals, you can alternate between hot and cool mineral pools equipped with massaging jets. The spa also offers a ginger body polish and steam therapy infused with local botanicals; some treatments culminate with time in the private spa garden.
Offerings at the five onsite restaurants range from casual bar fare at Frontier Tavern to upscale dining at the Crystal Room. The resort's signature steak and chophouse, known as the 1796 Room, serves 21-day aged USDA Prime beef along with fresh desserts prepared in house.

The nearby Blue Knob State Park contains a network of gently sloping loops and steady uphill climbs. Multi-use trails are open for mountain biking or horseback riding.
