In between kisses, heart-to-hearts, and hot tub baths, you can scope out Nemacolin's IG-worthy spaces, cute date night spots, and refreshing experiences. Let's get into those ASAP so you know exactly what to expect on your post-pandemic getaway.

Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, located in Farmington, Pennsylvania, has multiple sections to it. The Chateau is the beautiful castle-like building you got to know on night one when James met each woman after they stepped out of the limo. Falling Rock is extremely cozy, as it features a pool and winding paths, which look very similar to the ones that James and Bri initially drove down in their ATVs during their one-on-one date. There are also The Homes and The Estates on the Nemacolin property, which are for much more private. All of these mini-destinations have rooms you can book and stay in.

When speaking with Elite Daily, Nemacolin noted that each home and estate has its own style and atmosphere, created by the team of architects, engineers, and designers at Nemacolin. Some have a long dining room table decorated with flowers that would be the perfect spot for brunch. Others have a fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs, a kitchen with bold tiling, or a mid-century modern couch paired with a fun-loving wallpaper. Although these stays include a kitchen, guests can skip cooking and order room service at any time, too.

In terms of the space, the homes and estates can fit anywhere from two to 22 people at a time. If you want to go all out, there are some additional services for an additional charge, including a private butler service, chef service, and floral service. There's also a 24-hour shuttle that'll take you to other areas of the resort where you might enjoy a tasty Italian meal, or go on an adventure with almost as much thrill as Sarah's one-on-one in a plane.


In the winter, Nemacolin offers excursions like skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. For those who prefer a more chill getaway, they also have a spa and salon. (During the pandemic, safety measures have been put in place, so these excursions may be limited, cancelled, or require on-site rapid testing). Visiting post-pandemic is in your best interest and within the CDC's safety recommendations.

According to the resort, The Lodge, which is another section of the luxurious resort, has plans set to re-open in spring 2022. By then, you'll surely know how Matt James' season ended and be able to walk the property and reminisce on what happened and where. Of course, if you were a fan of JoJo Fletcher's season, which aired in spring 2016, you'll likely some spot familiar and stunning spaces, as it was a destination during her time as The Bachelorette.

Looking ahead to those days when the pandemic is behind us and you can travel to bucket list-worthy resorts, Nemacolin will be a must. There's no better way to get back into traveling than with a vacay that's extravagant, Bachelor Nation-approved, and undeniably luxe.
