Also stayed the weekend on the Groupon deal and was so impressed with everything about this resort. The resort definitely reads upscale but still maintains a relaxed, comfortable feel. Each staff person we encountered over the weekend greeted us personally and was very knowledgable about the resort to the point where they could answer any possible question we had.
Our room was in the older section of the hotel and so impressive. I wanted to steal the bathroom and transplant it into my house! Everything was lovely and the personal touches in the room we well noted. Also, the bed is heavenly. Be prepared to not want to get up in the morning! Enjoyed sitting out on the rocking chairs on the porch.
If you like history, you'll love this place because they obviously worked hard to make sure the old Bedford Springs resort lives on. There's guestbooks displaying various presidential stays, photographs, proclamations from Queen Victoria hanging on the walls throughout the hotel. I definitely spent a good amount of time wandering through the lobby and library and looking at everything.
We had some family activities to attend to so we didn't get to do as much as we wanted at the resort. The 1776 Tavern is a great place for a late night bite and beer. Enjoyed the live music on a Friday night. Went hiking on the trails around the resort and played some tennis on the lovely resort court. It was like playing on top of a mountain! On Sunday, we enjoyed the golf practice facility which was only $15/person unlimited balls all day. We basically had the entire facility to ourselves and spent 2.5 hours there--great deal!
Staying here was such a treat! I expected it to be similar to The Homestead in Warm Springs, VA but the Omni Bedford Springs blew that place away! Highly recommend--we'll be back to do all the things we missed out on this trip.
