Bedford, PA (Vocus) March 23, 2007
Reservations are now being accepted for this summer's re-opening of Bedford Springs Resort at http://www.bedfordspringsresort.com. The vintage Pennsylvania "springs hotel" that captivated American society for three centuries is slated to be unveiled in mid-June, following a meticulous $110+ million restoration. The painstaking attention given to historically accurate details throughout the resort's landmark structures already has been praised by architectural and historical experts.
Long heralded for its healing waters and restorative environs, Bedford Springs is attracting interest from generations of former guests, as well as first-time guests wishing to immerse themselves in the Bedford legacy. The acclaimed destination's origins date back to 1796 when its seven original mineral springs lured guests for a healing cure. This summer, these fabled waters again will be tapped and allowed to flow through the new 30,000 square-foot Spring Eternal Spa fed by Sweet Spring, one of the seven first discovered by Native Americans centuries ago.
A favored retreat for more than ten U.S. Presidents, numerous diplomats and politicians, the United States military, captains of industry and high society, today's travelers will walk the same hallowed hallways, gather in meeting spaces that echo with historic prescience, and tee up on a classic golf course designed by a trio of grand, golf architects: Spencer Oldham, A.W. Tillinghast and Donald Ross. The 21st century amenities and guest services, coupled with the scenic Central Pennsylvania countryside, are second to none.
Close to the intersection of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and Interstate 70, the resort is a convenient two-hour drive from Baltimore and Washington, DC, 90 minutes from Pittsburgh, three hours from Philadelphia and four hours from New York City. Bedford Springs Resort is just 129 miles from Pittsburgh International Airport and 113 miles from Harrisburg International Airport. Bedford County Airport offers a 5,000-foot runaway and can accommodate a wide array of private aircraft.
