One of the most dog-friendly resorts on the East Coast, Nemacolin is for those seeking a getaway where pets are not just accommodated but celebrated. A range of pet-friendly vacation rentals, as well as an on-site pet resort, spa, and veterinary clinic, ensure your furry loved ones can also experience the joy of escaping to our sprawling playground. Situated across more than 2,200 mountain acres in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania, Nemacolin is truly a place for all to play — including four-legged family members.


Pet-Friendly Accommodations

Nemacolin offers a variety of dog-friendly accommodations across The Grand Lodge, The Homes, and The Chateau, ensuring families of any size — and makeup — will find their ideal arrangement. No matter your choice, you and your pets will enjoy Nemacolin’s unique adventures and magic around every corner.


The Grand Lodge

Now open after extensive renovations, The Grand Lodge combines woodsy charm with a new level of luxury. You and your four-legged family members will have plenty of room to spread out in spacious, all-suite accommodations, while personalized butler service means your needs won’t just be met — they’ll be exceeded.

The Homes

Ideal for families and mid-sized groups, The Homes are tucked away in a more secluded section of Nemacolin. Equipped with residential amenities such as kitchens and private outdoor space, select townhomes provide welcoming home-away-from-home settings for those in search of the best pet-friendly vacation rentals, as well as views of animal habitats and the golf course.


The Washington Townhomes

The best pet-friendly vacations are anchored by accommodations that genuinely put you and your four-legged family members at ease, ensuring every moment is filled with relaxation and joy. With plenty of colorful cozy nooks and corners to laze about and a serene backyard patio for basking in the fresh air, The Washington Townhomes will make any beloved pet feel right at home.

A master bedroom with a king bed, a guest bedroom with a queen bed, plus a living room with a sleeper sofa offer ample space for families and groups of up to four to comfortably spread out. A fully-equipped kitchen will make preparing your pet’s favorite meals with ease. A bonus: The occasional roar from the lions, wolves, and tigers at Nemacolin’s Wildlife Habitats will delight and surprise everyone, not least your four-legged companions.

The Chateau

Pet-friendly vacations don’t need to be barebones. The Chateau, with its range of pet-friendly rooms and suites, also happens to be Nemacolin’s most opulent hotel, with meticulously maintained gardens and a grand façade influenced by the Ritz Paris in France.

At this time, The Chateau is closed for its own Nemacolin-style reimagination project with plans to open in the early summer of 2024. Upon its return, you’ll step inside the soaring lobby with its white columns and carved wooden walls, and you and your pets will instantly feel like royalty. Whether you choose to stay in a sprawling suite or a regal room, you’ll just be steps away from The Chateau’s culinary jewel, Lautrec, a Forbes Five-Star restaurant.


The Chateau Suites

With vaulted ceilings, crystal chandeliers, and personalized butler service, The Chateau Suites ensure you and your four-legged companions will feel pampered and indulged in an atmosphere of good taste. Plus, a comfortable sitting room means there’s plenty of space for everyone to relax and unwind after a day of excitement.
