The Resort Will Debut Stunning New Accommodations, Cabaret Lounge, and Additional Property Enhancements This Summer

Adorned with hues of soft taupe, pale robin’s egg blue, strong golds, warm browns, and fresh whites, the color palette at The Chateau expands on guest experiences.

Farmington, Pennsylvania (June 5, 2024) – Celebrated for its exceptional luxury in the picturesque Laurel Highlands, the stunning and expansive Nemacolin resort invites guests into the wholly reimagined hotel, The Chateau, known for its Ritz Paris-inspired design, debuting summer 2024, alongside new property revitalizations — Nightcap, PJ’s Ice Cream Parlor, Art Studios, and Kids Club.

 “As we grow and expand Nemacolin, we are consistently inspired to elevate our accommodations and guest offerings,” said Owner & CEO Maggie Hardy. “Our commitment to our guests and members is unwavering and this is best exhibited through the constant reimagination of the property. The Chateau was our second accommodation and is a known favorite among Nemacolin patrons and at the heart of all who experience it. For us to provide the unparalleled and luxurious service we are known for, it was imperative we reimagine the hotel’s interiors to reflect modern finishes that convey the real-life magic and whimsy we are known for.”

To continue offering exceptional luxury hospitality to guests and members alike, the Hardy family assembled a talented team of designers, builders, and visionaries, including 84 Lumber; Martik Brothers, Inc.; Moncur Design Associates, Inc.; Gensler; and King & Partners, to bring these revitalizations to life. These sensational updates will be unveiled throughout the summer of 2024, in true Nemacolin fashion.
