In the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, the Nemacolin “resort experience” isn’t limited to dining and relaxation (although there’s plenty of that, too). Instead, think suspended treetop ropes courses and indoor-outdoor art galleries, a shooting academy, fly-fishing, horseback riding, skiing, oh, and kicking it with lions, tigers and bears (oh my). Cooking classes and wine tastings augment stellar culinary offerings with gentleman-style cigar lounges, cocktail bars and 28 tables of casino gaming for dessert. Guests can even be picky about where they sleep with three hotels within the resort-the grande dame Chateau, the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Falling Rock and the English Tudor style Lodge.
In the Area
The Laurel Woodlands have thousands of acres of hiking trails. Fort Necessity national battlefield, with 1700s history steeped in the French and Indian War, is an eye-opening starting point. If you’re looking for more unfettered adventure, head to Ohiopyle State Park for 20,500 acres of rugged terrain and white waters along the Youghiogheny River Gorge. Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Fallingwater house, one of the country’s great architectural treasures, sits just 20 minutes from the hotel. After you’re done adventuring, treat yourself to the homestyle comfort fare of the nearby 1822 Stone House Historic Inn Restaurant.
How to Get There
We relaxed and enjoyed the resort. First week in November was VERY quiet, seemed almost empty. Excellent meal at Rockwell's! The spa was filled with happy employees who were helpful and efficient. Close to Flight 93 memorial and 2 Frank Lloyd Wright homes. We want to return to use some of the other amenities.
Definitely need to make reservations far in advance. We could not get into Letrec with a couple weeks advance notice. We thought we'd wait until we got there for some other reservations (like tours, etc.) because we wanted to play a few things by ear. That did not work - everything was booked. Even just going to the tavern for a quick bite required a wait. It seems like the facilities do not have enough capacity to accommodate all the guests.
A fabulous resort, a great place to celebrate any special occasion. The restaurant is phenomenal, you must try the seven course meal. Lots to do on site, golf, car museum, and many other amenities. The outdoor pool is very relaxing.
