Summer Bucket List

With the summer season fast approaching Nemacolin Woodlands Resort has seamlessly transformed from a snowy getaway tucked away in the mountains to an invigorating, non-stop adventure hotspot for all ages!  We invite you to join us in taking on our summer bucket list. Start crossing off activities… We promise you once-in-a-lifetime experiences you will never forget! 

1.  Grab a Dip at PJ’s Ice Cream & Pizza Parlor or Take a Dip in Paradise Pool
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!  Cool off from the hot summer sun by the best pool spot Nemacolin has to offer and enjoy a cone (or six) of hand scooped ice cream from PJ’s!  Watch and play with the kids as they splash and slide or take advantage of the pool-side food and beverage service.  

2.  Visit Nemacolin’s Wild Kingdom
At the welcomed addition of our newest amenity, Nemacolin’s Wild Kingdom, you can take a stroll through our nursery and meet our newest furry family including our Micro Pig Petunia, Fishing Cat, Oscar, and Binturong, Rue. One amenity highlight is our Enrichment Tours where you can make toys, treats and puzzles with a Zookeeper for our animals. 

3.  Golf Our PGA Tour-Tested Mystic Rock 
FORE! Nemacolin is home to 36 holes of championship golf, with nine a hole Mystic Rock addition coming soon (SHH! We know you’re excited, but please, don’t scream. Haven’t you ever heard of the golf clap?).  PGA-Tour Tested and Pete Dye designed, Mystic Rock features giant boulders, and lightning fast greens.  This course is one experience you’ll definitely want to drive off your summer bucket list!

4.  Take a Walk Through Robin’s Holistic Garden
At Nemacolin we not only believe in exceptional experiences, but the quality of those experiences. Each plant in the Garden is certified organic seed grown in organic soil and are raised on resort property at the Mystic Greenhouses.  Watch as our resort Chefs hand-select ingredients that are used daily throughout our Restaurant Collection for you to enjoy, or pick a veggie yourself. Don’t worry, we won’t tell!

5.  Grab a Bite at Sunset Terrace

Overlooking the 18th hole of Mystic Rock Golf Course and Falling Rock’s Infinity Pool you can sip a cocktail, dine from our upscale, yet comfortable menu and enjoy the Laurel Highlands sunsets while enjoying live entertainment every Saturday and Sunday evening throughout the summer.  Sunset Terrace is one dining option you won’t want to skip out on.

6.  Cast Aside Your Stresses With Our Orvis® Endorsed Fishing Activities 

There is something therapeutic about being on the water, and boy do we have options for you! From full and half day guided trips to fly tying with our Orvis® Endorsed instructors will have you experiencing the great PA outdoors like never before.  The Orvis® Endorsed Fly Fishing Lodge at The Nemacolin Field Club is your gateway to some of the finest fly fishing streams and creeks in the Eastern United States.  Check it out and try not to get hooked, we dare you!

7.  Zip Line Your Way Through the Laurel Highlands
Birds of a feather... well they race together!  Nemacolin’s Fatbird SuperFlyer is over 3,000’ of dueling zip lines! Reach speeds of up to 60 mph as you soar alongside a competing rider, high above the slopes at Mystic Mountain. Join us and experience flight on one of PA’s longest dueling zip lines.

8.  Find Your Inner Zen
Nemacolin is not only home to fun and adventure, but also rest and relaxation.  Stop in for an array of treatments and services ranging from massage, skin care and a full-service salon at the Forbes Four-Star rated, Woodlands Spa, or focus on integrative methods designed to achieve life balance and wellness at the Holistic Healing Center.  What better way to unwind after a day of excitement? 


9.  Get Lost In Our Museum
$45 Million Art Collection – Enjoy sights of the Berlin Wall, Pitcairn (owned by Steven McQueen) or sneak a peek into our Grand Ballroom to catch a glimpse of one of our eight Baccarat Chandeliers – Did you know there are only 2 other in the world and they are owned by Donald Trump?  Want to know more?

10.  Safari Tour In PA?
Yes, that is right! Our Wildlife Academy Safari Tour is a must.  Feed a marshmallow to a Himalayan Bear, meat to our Bengal Tiger, Kira, and grain to the Sheep and Llamas at Billy Goat Mountain.  It is an up close and educational animal experience like no other.
