I first visited the famed Nemacolin Woodland Resort during my teenage years for my Cousin’s wedding. Usually unimpressed as a child, I remember being blown away the moment we entered Nemacolin’s Chateau Layfette. Nemacolin seemed to be something out of a fairytale, with huge detailed columns, sparkly chandeliers and rich wood detailing. I had experienced this kind of luxury before, at historic houses and museums that my parents dragged me to, but to think this was an actual bonafide place to stay, eat and celebrate fascinated me.
Fast forward to the present and needing a quick mini vacation after the hustle of the holiday, I knew Nemacolin would be the perfect place to decompress.
