The Best Places to Propose at Nemacolin

When you’re looking for the perfect spot to pop the proposal question, Nemacolin has idyllic scenery creating a backdrop for your special moment. Reaching across more than 2,200 acres in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania, Nemacolin offers proposal spots like no other. Our ideas can become your own in a unique and wondrous way.

Perhaps you have a date night idea. Maybe you’ve got the sunset spot scouted. Perchance you need some help to take your proposal ideas to the next level. Whatever your plans for this life-changing question, we can help set the stage for romance and adventure when you’re ready for the next step.

The Lobby of The Chateau

Real Life Magic comes to life for Afternoon Tea, where dainty afternoon bites, a glass of champagne, beautiful porcelain pots and tea cups, and an interlude of respite surrounds. Or opt for opulence nearby in a secret space known as The Bleu Room, where those welcomed inside are never the same.

The Chateau Gardens

Step through the beautiful lobby, and you’ll find yourself outside in The Chateau Gardens, where marble statues of entwined lovers and Roman maidens representing the seasons can hold witness to your endearing possibilities. This is often a site for exquisite, outdoor summertime weddings and tented receptions, so perhaps your outdoor engagement in this space can be a prelude of what is to come. And if you need some creative assistance, our team is here to provide you with engagement ideas, too.

The Chateau

When magnificence is on your mind, The Chateau as a backdrop for your outdoor proposal creates a grand tribute to what lies ahead for the two of you! Crystal chandeliers, vaulted ceilings, and marble surroundings could be in the home you build together, as could an overnight escapade in the Presidential Suite, where dedicated butler service can cater to your every whim. If this iconic backdrop beckons you, we can assist in making blissful yearnings come true.

A Lone Tree

Poet and artist Khalil Gibran is quoted as saying, “Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” That truth is seen nowhere better at Nemacolin than with a beautiful lone tree that graces the green of the ninth hole of Shepherd’s Rock. Since holding a most spectacular wedding here in 2022, it’s become a special spot for picnics, nuptials, and quiet moments of contemplation. The sunset views of the Laurel Highlands are incredible, and if jeweled tones of orange, yellow, pink, purple, and blue are in your mind’s eye, this is the place from which dreams are dreamed.

Heart Sculpture

Nearby the tree, there’s a sculpture that makes the hearts of couples beat a bit faster. It’s a short stroll from the Sunset Terrace, and a perfect post-dinner destination after your meal at Aqueous concludes. Metal sculptor and fabricator Doyle Svenby’s piece A Hole Lot of Love perfectly frames a sunrise and the sunset in the Laurel Highlands. This beautiful painted heart has long been one of the best places to propose at Nemacolin. Says Svenby of his piece, “The inspiration: to lift one’s spirit, make one happy! The heart has long been recognized as being a symbol for love, charity, joy, hope, romance and compassion.”

Falling Rock

Over at the Falling Rock boutique hotel, the privacy of Cabana #6 at the Falling Rock Infinity Pool breathes in water-skimming views for a late-night rendezvous with champagne, caviar, canapes, sushi, or whatever special menu you can dream up together. Your butler can set the stage, and while you’re popping the question, a milk bath drawn with bubbles, rose petals, and candles can await your return to a fireplace suite and sunrise breakfast served on the balcony.
