Experience Pennsylvania's Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Like JoJo Fletcher on 'The Bachelorette'
Some vacations are meant for adventure, others for rest and relaxation. If you’re opting for the latter, there’s nothing more refreshing than escaping to the countryside, putting down your phone, and exploring nature’s surroundings.
When this type of getaway calls, answer it by escaping to Farmington, Pennsylvania, and booking a stay at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Named as one of the top hotels in Pennsylvania, the 2,000-acre resort has it all: two golf courses, pools, spa and wellness offerings, a zip line and “adventure center,” and a number of bars and restaurants. Plus, there are different buildings featuring diverse architectural styles and décor. Whisk yourself away to France in a room in Château Lafayette or feel right at home in the modern rooms of Falling Rock.
No matter which hotel you choose, a couples retreat to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is the perfect place for you to continue growing your relationship. With all the green space there, you’ll find more than one rose to hand out to the love of your life!
JoJo Fletcher traveled to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort on Season 12 of “The Bachelorette,” and here’s how to experience it just like her.
One-on-One Date: Ruff Romance
Nemacolin and the surrounding areas are filled with state parks waiting to be explored. Surprise your date by venturing over to Ohiopyle State Park and seeing the Pennsylvania countryside. Make it even more special by dogsledding around the park! Life isn’t too ruff when you’re with the one you love.
If the park and dogsledding tired you out, take a dip in one of the many hot tubs at Nemacolin and unwind before dinner at Supper Club. Make it double the bubble and bring a bottle of champagne with you to toast to your romantic vacation together.
After a romantic meal at Supper Club, JoJo and her date went to Palace Theater and attended a concert by Grammy Award-winning band Dan + Shay, where they performed their hit song “From the Ground Up.” You might not be able to attend your own private Dan + Shay concert, but don’t be afraid to turn on your portable speakers and dance in your date’s arms.
Group Date: Let's Score
It’s time to play ball!
Nemacolin is only 90 minutes from Pittsburgh, a major city for sports fans. If you feel like you need some urban hustle and bustle, drive up to Pittsburgh and wander around the historic Steel City. You can also boat around the Ohio River before paying homage to some of your favorite monuments and teams.
JoJo and the guys traveled to Pittsburgh for a group date at Heinz Field, where they played football. A few famous faces, including Ben Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, and Brett Keisel, joined in on the fun to teach JoJo’s suitors some drills.
Feel free to test your dates’ athletic skills and see who can blitz their way into your heart. This date is one Hail Mary pass that’s sure to end in a touchdown.
When you leave Pittsburgh and arrive back at Nemacolin, invite the group for an entertaining dinner at Falling Rock. Use this time to incorporate some lessons you learned at football into your relationship discussions. This can be your very own Rose Bowl game!
Two-on-One Date: Love Trail
Ohiopyle State Park takes up 20,000 acres of natural beauty, making it an ideal place for biking, camping, kayaking, zip lining, and more. Thanks to its abundance of activities, it’s no surprise that JoJo returned to the park for a second date to hike. When you visit, take your pick from any number of trails that will immerse you in some of nature’s most awe-inspiring surroundings.
The trail’s uphill climbs will be no match for your relationship’s perseverance and strength when it comes to completing any challenges that come your way.
A getaway to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort will result in complete relaxation, allowing you to focus on your relationships away from the noise of the outside world. Your vacation to Nemacolin is calling your name!
