2009 Resort Overview Brochure

  1. 1. Expect the Unexpected.
  2. 2. welcome Welcome to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. You won’t find another place that offers such a perfect blend of elegance, style, fun and adventure – all in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania. 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 little something for everyone” destination. Twenty plus years later, we’re proud to offer guests AAA Four- Diamond lodging, dining, amenities, activities with superior service throughout the resort. We’re equally proud of the newest in our line of luxury accommodations – Falling Rock, named to prestigious Five-Diamond status 2007, 2008 and 2009. One of only 93 hotels in the country to receive Five Diamonds. And Lautrec is also a recipient of the AAA Five-Diamond award in 2008 and in 2009, the restaurant received both AAA Five-Diamond and Mobil Five-Star. The combination makes Nemacolin one of only nineteen resorts in the world to boast Five Diamond lodging and dining. Our vision, our dream, has been realized. We strive each day to bring something new – something fresh – to the experience. This brochure will provide information that will make your stay with us more enjoyable. 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. Sincerely, Maggie Hardy Magerko Owner & President
