Quick History of Omni Bedford Springs Resort
If you’ve never been to the quaint town of Bedford Springs, please put it on your travel bucket list. Filled with American history (George Washington actually called it home for a while), it’s a place that keeps drawing me back. As for Omni Bedford Springs Resort, if I could think of perfection in a couple’s getaway atmosphere, it’s there. Beautiful no matter what time of year, I’m especially a fan of it in winter when the holiday decorations are flanking the mantles, walls, and windows.
The multi-story resort was the summer home for a dozen U.S. Presidents while in office. Why, you ask? The area, with its eight different mineral springs, was considered a place to heal your body and mind. It drew not only U.S. officials but wealthier clientele looking for a natural way to cure ailments.
Present day, it’s still a gorgeous respite filled with restaurants, beautiful communal porches, and the famous Bedford Bath Ritual in its spa. During moderate temperatures, there are plenty of activities including hiking and walking trails ideal for getting some fresh air, an outdoor pool, a fire pit complete with s’mores sticks, and good old peace and quiet.
