Fall Foliage
Happy Fall!

We rang in the New Year with a blistery Winter, greeted Spring, kicked-off Summer and now are welcoming Fall. Seems as soon as we say hello to a season, we are turning around and saying goodbye. However, it is always Fall that makes us slow down, take a deep breath and realize, "wow, here we are in another season of fun." We know that the saying is true, "times flies when you are having fun," but we also think that there is something else about Fall.

It has to be the beauty of the season. Surrounded by the mountains of Pennsylvania's Laurel Highlands, rolling hills as far as the eye can see, and colors that pop against the bright blue sky. Warm tones of red, orange, green and yellow are scattered perfectly throughout. It is almost as if Mother Nature got out her crayon box and touched up the horizon. But it isn't just the colors. It is also the feel that Fall naturally brings. The smell that lingers in the crisp air. It is a season that feels alive, warm and inviting.

So, take the time this Fall for a much needed break. Even if it is to hop in your car and drive. Leaf peepers... We are not quite at peak but it is still worth a drive!

Happy National Customer Service Week!

Happy National Customer Service Week!

We really do not need a special holiday to recognize our loyal guests and devoted associates, but since the first week of October is designated National Customer Service Week, we thought we would take the opportunity to shout-out our gratitude.

Thank you to our guests! YOU make what we do FUN. YOU make us strive to be the best and to push ourselves to be better. YOU make us proud of the service we provide each day. Thank you for choosing Nemacolin as YOUR resort.

Our guests return year after year not only because of our abundance of activities, championship golf, world renowned spa and award-winning dining options, but because of our associates! While it has been great to be honored throughout the years with industry leading awards and to be known as a travel destination that has something for everyone. What really brings our guests back is the way our associates make them feel. We receive emails and letters weekly from guests thanking us for their experience. Not one letter is received without the mention of our service or a reference to an associate by name. Think about your own travel experiences. The places that keep you coming back year after year. Why? We imagine it is because of the feeling you experience when you arrive and even more importantly how you feel when you leave.

What other ways are we celebrating National Customer Service Week?
