I am so nervous to leave! It is completely unfathomable to me that in a couple of hours, I will be taking my biochemistry final, then heading home to catch my flight tomorrow. There is still so much to be done! Currently, I think what I am most excited for is seeing Madrid, which is our first destination of the studying abroad experience. For as long as I have been learning Spanish (nearly SEVEN years now), there have always been beautiful pictures ...
Rain! It rained most of the day today we gave up and decided to bike through it. We had 19 miles to our campground in Rockwood when it started down pouring, the trail sunk and we went from going 11 miles to a high of 9 miles an hour.

Historical Traveler Reviews Nemacolin Woodlands Resort & Spa Farmington
Great Location - Poor Service
This resort is beautiful and the amenities and offerings are plentiful - but for the amount of money - from the room rates to the $20 to use the gym - we found the service to be less than acceptable. We experienced sparse staff for everything from restaurant service to check in to having someone pick up the phone in a timely fashion. The accommodations were somewhat dated and the resort is so spread out that shuttle service is required to get about - with long wait times. All in all - we would not return. The Greenbrier offers equally beautiful surroundings with better service.
We stayed at Nemacolin's Lodge building over Thanksgiving 2004 and had a great time. We'd strongly recommend this resort to family and friends.
Nemacolin is a beautiful resort but becomes average when considering what you pay for it. My advice is, if you are staying here on your company's dime, you'll love the place. If you're paying for it yourself, you may be disappointed.
I can't say enough good things about Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa. Beautiful location, immaculate grounds, fantastic accomodations, phenomenal food, superb service. The way it's supposed to be at a fine, fine resort.
I have stayed at Nemacolin many times and it is, by far, my favorite destination. My travels have taken me all over the country (and beyond) and yet this will remain one of my favorite spots. People who live in Pennsylvania do not realize what a gem they have in Nemacolin! If you live in the tri-state area and are looking for a nice get away either for a weekend or longer, look no farther.
Nemacolin is pure paradise nestled in the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania. Having stayed twice at this beautiful resort, I haven't had one bad experience yet. With two golf courses, a small ski resort, a spa, and gigantic pool with swim-up bar, a polo field, airfield, and much more, Nemacolin is truly amazing. While extremely pricey, experiencing Nemacolin is second to none. The restaurants are absolutely amazing, and there are many numerous on-site shops to peruse. A+.
First class all the way. The main lodge rooms are fabulous. Words can't describe the decor and size of the rooms. The bathroom was as large as most hotel rooms. With wall to wall marble, jacuzzi tub, and double sinks. The spa is one of the finest I've visted. I didn't want to leave. Indoor pool, every treatment you can imagine and a health food resturant that you can dine in wearing your robe. Very clean and friendly knowledgable staff. Highly reccomended.
Was there Nov '02 when the weather was dreary and rainy most of the time. Even with that, this place still SHINED! Absolutely incredible!! I cannot begin to describe EVERYTHING there. The staff was genuine, friendly, helpful and did not constantly got there hand out for a tip for their help. So many choices in a place to eat, exercise, relax, have fun, site see and so much more. Decorated very tastefully with a great collection of antiques and collectables. Yet, warm and inviting. Can't wait to go back. The room we had was a "Lodge" room and it was spectacular with its huge vaulted ceilings, extra long tub, separate jacquzi, comfortable bed and great floor plan. All that and its not the so called best room they have. The "Chateau" rooms are supposed to be the next step up. Look on their website for all there is to see and do and for special rates from about Mar-May. This was told to us by the bellboy when we commented that we couldn't wait to save for another vacation there. He was young and said he had worked there for several years. Now I know why you never see an employee there unhappy, complaining etc. They make it obvious that they like working there. An airstrip, car museum, 2 golf courses, shooting range, skiing, horseback riding, glamorous spa, nice size pool, and a new outdoor store. Go and see it for yourself, you won't be disappointed!
Great, great place
The Nemacolin is gorgeous and there is plenty to do on the property itself. It does get a bit pricey, but it is worth every penny. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great resort experience. The Mystic Rock course is simply amazing, and I've been to many other great courses (pebble beach, etc). This one is truly fantastic.
As goo as it gets
Probably the finest resort in the midwest. We have been there many times and each time we're very pleased. We always take the two bedroom townhouses since we have two children. A shuttle picks you up at your door and takes you to the spa. It always takes no more than a few minutes from the time you call for one than it is a your doorstep. The attention to every detail is always there. There are several restaurants from the very casual to the most elegant. The large outdoor pool has a bar in it. Food is served at poolside. There are activities to suit everyone. In short this is as good as it gets in spa resorts.
