Nemacolin Woodlands

In the scenic Laurel Mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania is the Nemacolin Woodlands Resortand Spa, a former 1,000-acre game preserve transformed by lumber baron Joe Hardy into a stylish full-service resort. There are touches of whimsy: The Inn's 98 rooms range in style from Elizabethan to Art Deco, life-size bronze statues can surprise the unwary, and Mystic Rock, the marquee golf course, produces the kind of nervous chuckles only Pete Dye can elicit. The original course, Woodlands Golf Links, is a far gentler test but no slouch at 6,814 yards. Other amenities include a world-class spa, larger-than-Olympic-size pool, and a very eclectic art collection. For fine dining, the Golden Trout is seriously good.

Dining: Lautrec (a French Bistro), Golden Trout (4-diamond DiRoNa Award-winning restaurant featuring regional American cuisine), Caddy Shack (family style atmosphere serving American fare), Seasons (conscious cuisine), The Tavern (pub style serving light snacks and sandwiches), P.J.'s (50's style soda shop, ice cream and pizza parlor), Hungry Moose Café (cafeteria style buffet), Gazebo (modest breakfast and lunch offerings), Tea Room (traditional English tea), and Orville's Pub & Grille (light snacks).

Additional features: 36 holes of golf on 2 PGA-rated championship courses, Golf Academy, driving range, Equestrian Center, Spa (indoor pool, whirlpool, steam rooms, sauna, locker rooms, fitness center, massage services, hair-skin-nail care, body therapies), 3 outdoor and 2 indoor swimming pools, 8 cross-country ski trails, 5 downhill ski slopes, 14 specialty stores, 6 walking and biking trails, Sporting Clays (30 station shotgun course), Kidz Klub (fully-supervised entertainment for kids, ages 4-12: heated indoor pool, miniature golf, boating, hiking, games and crafts), art tours of the famous Hardy Art Collection, private airfield.

Recreational Activities: bike rentals, paddle boats and canoes, croquet, fishing, golf simulator, miniature golf, swimming, tennis, video arcade, virtual reality, ping pong, board games, horseshoes, volleyball, badminton, shuffleboard, footballs, basketballs, soccer balls, bocce balls, 3-sided 50' climbing wall, ropes course, in-line skating, mountain biking, beach volleyball, team building course.
