Whimsy and Wonder

Tucked in the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania, Nemacolin offers guests a serene getaway.

This year, Nemacolin is bringing the magic of the holiday season to life with Hardy’s Holiday Village, open now through December 23. This never-before-seen spectacle has transformed Nemacolin into a glowing winter wonderland featuring unique shops and entertainment, delicious treats, an outdoor ice-skating rink and more.

Snow-dusted walkways guide guests to the resort’s North Pole, a fully immersive holiday village inspired by the great European holiday markets. Throughout each day, the village elves, adorned in chic, custom attire created by celebrated avant-garde fashion designer Jackson Wiederhoeft, perform spontaneous, pop-up choreographed numbers of holiday classics for all to enjoy. 

Hardy’s Holiday Village will offer several enchanting boutiques for guests to find the perfect gifts for loved ones including Hardy’s House of Ornaments; Magical Maggie’s Mittens and Scarves, a boutique market selling luxury winter apparel including cashmere scarves and sweaters; and the Nutcracker Factory, a destination for unique Christmas décor. Santa’s House, Nemacolin’s fantastical toy store, will feature gifts for all ages and family photographs with Santa. Scents of gingerbread, freshly baked pastries, and other delights, will lead guests through the village to a selection of gourmet shops and festive treats including Hardy’s Hot Cocoa Hideaway and Merry Merry Macarons.

Guests can also take a cue from Nemacolin’s top 10 gift ideas. There is something for everyone from chic designer sweaters, cozy sherpa blankets, golf essentials, luxurious spa products, apothecary teas, and one-of-a-kind artwork, to planning and prepaying for an indulgent stay at Nemacolin. 

After a festive afternoon and checking everyone off their list, guests can relax and unwind at Nemacolin’s award-winning Woodlands Spa and Salon or the Holistic Healing Center. 

Elevated accommodations are available at the recently opened all-suite hotel, The Grand Lodge. Guests can also experience the modern elegance of Falling Rock, recipient of numerous Forbes Travel Guide Awards, in addition to The Homes and The Estates. Nemacolin comes to life with many exquisite dining options, bars and lounges, and two championship golf courses. There is an experience for all ages and interests, from outdoor pursuits at The Peak, including skiing, tubing, ropes courses and rock climbing, to cultural offerings such as art tours, cooking classes, and more.
