First-rate, top notch, OUTSTANDING!!!! A review of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort & Spa
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.
We splurged for one of the rooms on the concierge level of the chateau--and we were not sorry. The room was not-to-be-believed, the butler service was everything you'd wish for (just for instance, a choice of bath salts or bubbles delivered to your room for your morning soak in the enormous jetted tub). Complimentary coffee delivery in the room, club room with "small" snacks and drinks virtually all day long.
And if you're a foodie like I am or just appreciate a truly one-of-a-kind dining experience, you must book the Chef's Table at Lautrec. You sit at a small table INSIDE THE KITCHEN and watch the chefs at work while they prepare a many, many course tasting dinner for your culinary enjoyment. We had an unbelievable 14 courses (small tastes of each item, of course) accompanied by different wines to complement the fine foods. The chef, sous chef and cooks talk to you about what they're doing and invite you to wander around the kitchen to observe and ask questions. This is way, way better than watching Emeril!
The spa is also outstanding--truly a woodland oasis. Great decor, great services, great facilities. Go early for your appointments to spend time in the world-class sauna, steam room, or whirlpool, then sip a glass of cucumber water while you relax before and after your treatment.
Take time while you're on the property to explore the brand new Falling Rock building and grounds, sure to be another Nemacolin hit! We had a high-style, delicious lunch in the new restaurant, Aqueous, and enjoyed every savory bite.
All in all, this is a wonderful destination vacation spot. Plenty to do, from mini-golf to Hummer rides and from snow skiing to skeet shooting, not to mention professional quality golf courses. Beautiful inside and out.
