The Great Highland Bagpipe - Scotland's National instrument and a time-old tradition dating back to the 15th Century, spotted where? No place other than your favorite home away from home!
Nemacolin guests are welcome to join in on the resort tradition which takes place every Friday and Saturday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and enjoy the melody of a professional Bagpiper as he walks the Falling Rock property and the 18th hole of the Mystic Rock golf course. Guests are encouraged to grab a drink and bite to eat as they sit back, relax and enjoy our breathtaking views, all while enjoying this one-of-a-kind Nemacolin tradition. May we recommend Aqueous, an upscale steakhouse and Amber Bar – both nestled inside the AAA Five-Diamond Falling Rock Boutique Hotel. Leave it to us to bring the Great Highland Bagpipe to the Great Laurel Highlands!

It’s peak week for us here at Nemacolin and we are already past 75% changed, with an estimated full fall color toward this weekend and next week, with the best fall colors on October 11 and 12, just in time for the resort’s annual RocktoberFest Event!
Plan your next leaf-peeping trip this weekend into next week and take the scenic drive to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort for great fall fun and 2,000 acres of beautiful autumn views. We still have sunny days and plenty of activities for the whole family, from 36-holes of golf to 40’ Canopy Tours.

Fall Foliage, General
Posted on Thursday, October 02, 2014 by Nemacolin Woodlands Resort
Ash, birch, poplar and walnut are varying shades of brilliant yellow and gold; virginia creeper, sumac, dogwood and blackgum are glowing in scarlet, maroon and brick red; while sassafras is clocking in with the brightest colors in hot orange and yellow. The higher elevation of the Laurel Highlands cause color change to happen a bit sooner than the surrounding counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania, so if you look out your window and the trees are not as bright, it’s time to take a trip down our way and get a full taste of the bright and beautiful colors Nemacolin is showcasing.
The best time to experience fall foliage is by getting outside as often as you can, as even a day or two can spark new color in each tree. Check in next week, as Peak Week reveals itself for leaf peepers in the Laurel Highlands! And don’t forget to sit back, relax and enjoy the view…

Change is in the air! It certainly is the beginning of fall here at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, a time in the Laurel Highlands where you can view some of the most beautiful scenery in Western Pennsylvania. Our team was hard at work this morning, building our pumpkin and squash display in front of the Lodge.
You may have already noticed a few changing colors earlier in the month due to a spell of cold nights and hot days. As our days get shorter and cold nights get longer, the temperature and waning sunlight stimulates the change, and eventually prompts the “fall” of the leaf. But not to worry, Pennsylvania has the longest and most unique fall foliage season than any other state, and only about 10% of the trees have changed in the Laurel Highlands Region.
Our best autumn colors will be showcased over the peak week of October 7 – 12, during our fall festival, RocktoberFest, on Saturday, October 11. The leaves are already popping color, so you won’t want to miss the beautiful views on the back side of the Sundial Lodge, listening to live music and sipping on craft beer.
Nemacolin will certainly bring some beautiful sights in the upcoming weeks, whether you want to golf, hike, horseback ride or just sit on a Lodge balcony. Where are your favorite spots to leaf-peep at Nemacolin?
