Life Experiences. These are the things you've always wanted to do, but just didn’t have the access or the time to do them. Nemacolin, will bring those experiences to you. From off road driving, animal safaris and zip lines to fine-dining, spa treatments and golf, the only thing missing is the ocean... but they’re working on that.

Guests have a choice at Nemacolin. You may choose to stay at the Chateau Lafayette; inspired by the famed Ritz in Paris, France. A tribute to the grand hotels and resorts of classic Europe. From its magnificent reception hall with marbled floors and crystal chandeliers to its lavish tea room and upscale shopping boutiques, the Chateau Lafayette transports guests to a world of luxury.

The sunset views from the Chateau Lafayette are the hallmark of legends. From the Terrace Coúche de Soleil, guests can partake in the nightly summer “Soleil Rendezvous” sunset viewing parties paired with apéritifs and hors d'oeuvres for an envious Instagrammable moment.

Or you might prefer the Lodge; celebrating its 50th anniversary, The Lodge harkens back to its original founding as the hunting retreat of Willard F. Rockwell, a Pittsburgh business titan. His guests would spend the day in the highlands hunting, fishing and foraging, returning to the warmly rich accommodations to enjoy family, friendships and fireside festivities.

Over the years, The Lodge has played host to royal receptions and major Hollywood celebrities, the likes of which have included Tony Randall, Joan Rivers, Milton Berle, Phillis Diller, and the great Eva Gabor, to name just a few. As guests traverse The Lodge, they’re sure to delight in notable mementos, signature pieces from the Hardy Family Art Collection, and Pennsylvania’s largest cellar boasting upwards of 21,000 bottles of exquisitely curated wines.

Today, The Lodge celebrates its historic beginnings and honors the timeless hunting lodge experience. Guests enjoy dining at Rockwell’s, a classic steakhouse serving the finest cuts of beef, wild game and fresh fish, while The Pantry presents farm-to-table provisions for guests to grab and go. Family traditions are made and truly relished amidst the nightly fireside gatherings.
