Welcome to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, nestled in the scenic
Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania – where we’ve taken the
luxury vacation experience to unparalleled levels.

The Hardy family journey began in 1987 with the purchase of the
Nemacolin Resort property. It began with a vision: to create a
world-class resort unlike any other. To create a getaway designed for
couples, families, corporate gatherings – a “something for everyone”

Many years later, we’re proud to offer several lodging options ranging
from the luxurious AAA Five-Diamond Falling Rock to the comfort
of the Maggie Valley RV Park. We’re equally proud of the activities
that abound.

Our vision, our dream, has been realized. And we strive each day
to bring something new – something fresh – to the experience.
These pages provide information that will make your stay with us
more enjoyable. Please refer to them for assistance with dining
reservations, recreational activities, or any other of the resort’s
amenities. And if there is anything we can do to be of additional
service, please ask.

We look forward to sharing a memorable visit with you.
