About the property
- Condo1010 sqft
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay2 - 3 nights
2 story 2 bedroom/2 bath (plus small inflatable in play room)..on resort grounds
If you prefer the tranquil ambiance of a mountain retreat, but with down comforters, Natuzi leather chairs, and the option to ring for room service from a 5 star restaurant, then you should definitely call me. Attractively decorated and tastefully appointed with certified 'Protect-a-Bed' mattresses and box spring encasements found in many high-end hotels... kid friendly, but not through sacrifice of adult tastes ... the accommodations capture an elegant 'homey-ness' while providing access to most of the amenities of a world class resort and spa.
Located in the heart of the resort, this two bedroom condo has over 1000 square feet contained in two living levels. The second level is a full loft with cathedral ceiling, full bath and play room. The large furnished deck is private and overlooks wooded terrain and a small stream.
Please note that although the number of guests is listed as 5, the number relates to combined adults and children as there are only 2 queen beds and one small inflatable in the playroom that is meant for a child. If larger accommodations are needed, I have an attached one bedroom unit that, if available, I can offer for a reduced rate. Renting both therefore provides 3 queen size beds and 3 full baths plus an additional 680 square feet.
Conveniently located, you are in walking distance to the spa and many other resort activities. And for additional convenience there is a free shuttle which can take you to any and all of the other resort facilities...from the world class golfing and shooting academy, to the wild animal habitat and equestrian center, to the restaurants (one with free standing aquarium and pool hall), to the casino. There is also a mountaintop heated condo pool with lifeguard, beach towels, lounge chairs, tables and vending machines. Or if the snow keeps you from the outdoor pool, snuggle in front of a log burning fireplace with board games and complimentary hot chocolate and popcorn...after skiing and a horse drawn sleigh ride of course.
Or if you want an intimate evening with dinner and cocktails, start with a massage or one of the other 100+ treatment and salon services at the internationally acclaimed Feng Shui-inspired spa. It was rated #10 Resort Spa in North America and #4 Conde Nast 'Top Spas for Treatment'. Next, drop the young ones off at the Kids Club and send the teens safely on the shuttle to 'The Apex Entertainment Complex with its 'kid-awesome' arcades and bowling alleys. Finally...your time! So stroll the halls of the chateau and chalet, wine glass in hand, as you head to the Mobil 5 Star, AAA 5 Diamond Lautrec or one of the other esteemed resort restaurants.
And once you've exhausted what you thought had to be all the resort activities,take advantage of the instruction of an acclaimed PGA Master Professional at the new state of the art 360 degree computerized Nike Fitting System. THAT will help master your game on the resort's Par 72, 7,526 yard PGA tested course which was awarded the 2010 Gold Medal Award by Golf Magazine. But if golf's not your thing, try out the Orvis-endorsed Fly Fishing Center's half or full day guided river trips or one of their casting and tying lesson. Or maybe check out the 35 stations with towers, the 5 stand pavilion, and the integrated Wobble Trap Field at the 140 acre Shooting Academy. Or how about the three challenging Off-Road Terrain Courses and 600 wooded acres awaiting the nourishment of all that human adrenalin? But I MUST warn you to watch out for the stalking black leopard on the Safari Trail or even the lions that you pass while biking or walking the grounds. I would like you to rent from me again.
But wait, there's more!! Why not take a scenic 15 minute drive to explore glorious Ohiopyle State Park and walk or bike the fantastic trails or feel the rush of adrenalin as you brave the perils of white-water rafting. Or about the same distance away you can have a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's magnificent Falling Water. And finally, don't forget all those antique shops, flea markets and historic landmarks just a stone's throw from the condo.

About barbara brown
My husband and I bought our condo when our daughter was eleven years old. It afforded us an opportunity to escape from the city and 'camp out' while still being culturally spoiled. But it also afforded us an opportunity to ski, horseback ride, paintball, play tennis and swim. In addition, our daughter had the opportunity to role play 'Eloise at the Plaza', taking the shuttle on her own to any and all new and daring adventures. She experienced so much of life there. From the deck I can still imagine streamers which hung from the trees near the various clubhouses she and her Nemacolin friends built over the years. She is currently in her first year of residency and her former play room is now for our guests to enjoy, even to write their names and personal notes on its walls as she did (yes, moms and dads, it IS Ok, but only the play room, please). Commitments and obligations now keep me from enjoying the place as I once did but when it's not rented and I am free, I think nothing of taking off at midnight so I can wake up there to all the things that first captivated me, from the wooded terrain to the art, the spa and the food...the place has it all. I love the condo and its memories. I think you will too.
barbara brown purchased this Condo in 1998
Why barbara brown chose Farmington
My condo is in the center of its own glorious world. Within a few minutes, either walking or driving, I am exposed to art and architecture; one of the best martinis I've ever had; a fully equipped state of the art gym and spa; great shopping (that's where I buy most of my presents); prime golf and clay shooting; the most serene snowfalls and autumn foliage; and lions, tigers and bears (Oh My!) It is a safe and fun-filled environment for kids or a warm and accommodating space for adult friends to gather and play. It's a paradise!
What makes this Condo unique
For larger parties this condo can be combined with my attached one bedroom unit, transforming your space to a 1700 square foot 3 story/ 3 bedroom/3 bath townhome that can sleep 7. I offer special discounts for such a rental.

Very clean and welcoming touches were very much appreciated. Smaller living area and kitchen than I thought. Adequate for a short getaway.
Just like home
This was my second stay at the condo. It was my first time during the winter. My kids took their first skiing lessons at Mystic Mountain, which is walking distance from the condo. It was a terrific place to learn. I enjoyed night skiing and the live music at the Apex Lounge afterwards. I highly recommend the tea service at the Chateau. My dog stayed at Nemacolin Wooflands and she was well cared for. It was nice to visit with her and take her for a walk to see the lions, tigers & bears on property. We made a stop at Reflection on the last day. There were some really beautiful pieces of artwork there. I wish we had more time to explore the property. Oh well, we'll just have to come back again!
Lovely location. Beautiful condo with many unexpected extras!
Lovely stay. Gorgeous venue and beautiful condo. Barbara was available about a question I had and quick to respond, the condo very clean, MANY extras and she goes far beyond the basics to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Added plus is the shuttle service and many activities at Nemacolin. Will return!!
It was very nice. The host was very communicative and helpful. Would stay again!
