The resort has been featured on The Bachelorette before, and now, Matt James will film his entire season of The Bachelor at this location. So what is so special about Nemacolin Woodlands Resort?
The Bachelor will film at Nemacolin and it will be everything they need
The Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is situated on 2,000 acres in Laurel Highlands of Southwestern Pennsylvania. The website says, “luxurious guestrooms, suites, townhomes and luxury vacation homes, including the Falling Rock boutique hotel, The Chateau Layfayette and other recipients of the Forbes Travel Guide 2020 Awards making Nemacolin Woodlands Resort the Resort with 22 Stars!”
And, of course one can drive to the resort. However, those coming from out of town by air can land on the on-site airstrip. Many arrive to enjoy their time at the resort via private jet.
And, the resort is pet friendly for those wanting to include their fur babies in their vacation. They even have an on-site veterinarian and doggie day care for times families are away from their rooms.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused Nemacolin to fundamentally rethink every aspect of the resort. From working with an infectious disease expert to developing PPE and disinfecting guidelines to changing how to make and serve food, Nemacolin has had to make a lot of changes to reopen during these unprecedented times. One of those changes has been to limit the number of people on the resort at any one time. The resort has currently limited the use of its amenities to overnight hotel guests and members only at this time. This will allow the property to maintain appropriate social distancing for guests and associates, while still delivering the service experience level Nemacolin has provided in the past. Everyone at Nemacolin appreciates the community’s patience as we determine the way ahead and believe we will come out of this stronger than we were before.
Award winning golf
The golf courses at Nemacolin are award winning. The incredible course designed by Pete Dye and called Mystic Rock Golf Course. Phil Mickelson is just one of many pro golfers to play on this spectacular course.
The website says, “High atop the Pennsylvania Allegheny Mountains, Mystic Rock spans acres of scenic highlands, offering players championship golf in a spectacular setting. A par-72 course layout, the course has a rating of 77 and slope of 149 from the championship tees, one of the highest ratings in the country.”
They also have multiple awards including those listed below.

It’s a beautiful resort for Matt to film his season
If things go right for Matt, the resort even does weddings! There’s no doubt Bachelor producers picked an amazing spot to film the upcoming season.
Matt’s season will begin filming the first week of October. The resort will be closed to guests from this point through probably mid November. The season will premiere on ABC in January if all goes as planned.
