Day 1 Nemacolin Itinerary

Begin the day with breakfast from Bittersweet Cafe

Bittersweet Cafe is a unique garden cafe, offering a menu of fresh food with a new take on family recipes. Between their famous breakfast sandwich and Belgian waffles, there’s no room for disappointment. Not to mention the super cute photo opportunities!

Browse the Nemacolin Gallery

Nemacolin’s Gallery has over 900 works of art from all over the world. Take a stroll through the resort for a glance at the multimillion dollar Hardy Family Art Collection. Their fine art and sculpture collection has works from artists such as Fernando Botero, Clarice Smith, Frederic Remington, and Tiffany Studios.

They have something for everyone’s viewing pleasure with works ranging from traditional to contemporary and abstract. In fact, some of the collection is even for sale if something catches your eye! 

Enjoy your afternoon tea in the Tea Room

Pinkies up! It's time for a traditional English tea experience in the Tea Room located in the Chateau Lafayette. Enjoy an afternoon of sophisticated bliss with sandwiches, scones, pastries, and of course an assortment of tea! Seating begins at 3 p.m.

Saddle Up for an Equestrian Adventure

What better way to tour the Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands than on horseback?

Take in the scenery while being guided through two miles of backwood trails. Don’t worry, this isn’t just for experienced riders…. All you need is closed toe shoes and a love for horses!

Sip and Stroll on Nemacolin’s Wine Cellar Tour

Did you know Nemacolin has the largest working wine cellar in Pennsylvania? Their 12,000 bottle collection is valued at around $1 million!

You can learn all about it on their wine cellar tours! Guided by Nemacolin’s resident sommelier, you will explore the immersive wine chamber while sipping on an excellently paired glass of wine.

Enjoy an exquisite dining experience at Lautrec Bistro

Lautrec is one of only 32 restaurants in the world that have been awarded the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond rating — and rightfully so with their carefully curated courses just for you.

Kristin Butterworth, Lautrec’s executive chef, has created an innovative and constantly evolving menu that utilizes local, in season ingredients and an artful take on French-American cuisine. You won’t want to miss this dining experience.

Nightcap at the Cigar Bar

If you are in the mood for a night cap to end the evening, stop by the Cigar Bar for a sample of bourbon or one of their Prohibition-inspired cocktails. The deep leather chairs and dark wooden walls give the ultimate essence of luxury.

Day 2 Nemacolin Itinerary

Kickstart your day with a mouthwatering breakfast

Maywood Grill, right off National Pike, is the perfect start to your second day at Nemacolin! We recommend an organic coffee drink and one (or maybe two!) of their signature cinnamon rolls. Yum.

Let the relaxation begin at the Woodlands Spa and Salon

We mentioned pampering, right? A day at the spa is just what you need to decompress from everyday stressors. Good thing the Woodlands Spa and Salon offers a variety of services.

The half-day immersion package includes a massage and scrub, facial, and pedicure for three and a half hours of pure bliss. Not to mention complimentary drinks and light bites!

Spend some time in the pool and sauna

Fun fact: spa treatments at the Woodlands Spa and Salon include access to many amenities on the day of service including the spa’s pool and sauna.

So after your treatment, take a dip in the pool with a complimentary drink or a trip to the sauna to make your half-day immersion into a full day of luxury!

Wine and dine at the illustrious Aqueous Restaurant

After your day of pampering, you will have likely worked up an appetite. Why not wrap up your weekend of luxury with a vibrant dinner at Aqueous, a Forbes Four-Star and AAA Four Diamond restaurant?

With their sea-inspired modern cuisine and atmosphere that draws inspiration from the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, you will once again have a culinary experience that is unparalleled to any other.

Have a safe trip home!
