Chalybeate Springs Hotel, also known as The Chalybeate, is a historic 19th and early-20th century resort hotel located at Bedford Township in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. It consists of the original two-story, three-bay Federal-style brick dwelling built about 1851. In 1867, the front wing of the hotel was added. It is a two-story, brick structure with front and rear porches and second story gallery porches. The 'L'-shaped rear wing was added about 1885, and is a two-story brick structure with porches and second story gallery porches on both sides. A separate ballroom building was built in 1903. The hotel was in use until 1913. In 1946, it was restored and refurbished. It operated as a hotel until 1956, when it was converted to apartments.
