This historic resort in Bedford, Pennsylvania, features modern and luxurious spa amenities.
Nestled among the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania, the property that Omni Bedford Springs Resort sits on today has housed a hotel since 1806, when Dr. John Anderson built the original Stone Inn. By that time, the area had become known for its mineral springs and travelers made the journey to the 2,200-acre property that Anderson purchased in 1796 to partake in the water’s healing benefits.
Clientele over the years has included celebrities, heads of industry and dignitaries spanning the globe. Today, Omni Bedford Springs Resort continues to offer the perfect place to unplug from day-to-day life.
Covering 30,000 square feet, the resort’s Springs Eternal Spa provides space to unwind and recharge and makes for an ideal place for a wellness-centered weekend. Choose from the spa’s massage treatments and techniques, including Swedish or deep tissue, or stimulate the senses with an Aromatic Alchemy Massage, which makes use of oils such as lavender and ginger. Another option is to feel the warmth of hand-carved, 100% pure salt stones from the Himalayan Mountains for a full-body, 55- or 65-minute treatment.
Guests can further elevate their skincare with the spa’s HydraFacial, which exfoliates, cleanses and rehydrates the skin, or lip and eye treatments that use ingredients such as arnica, green tea and citric acid that can accommodate even the most sensitive of skin.
Afterward, grab your bathing suit (along with the provided robe and sandals) and enjoy the Bedford Bath Ritual, which features an aromatic steam room, mineral deluge shower, a whirlpool and cool plunge pool. (The Bedford Baths are complimentary with any private spa service and do not require a separate appointment.) Those staying at the hotel can also take a dip in the resort’s 1905 indoor pool. 2138 Business 220, Bedford, Pennsylvania 15522, 814/623-8100, bedfordspringsresort.com
