Farmington Condo Rental Photos and Description

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' yet with all 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. I have an attached one bedroom unit that, if available, I will offer for a drastically reduced rate if both are rented to accommodate more than 4 adults. Renting both therefore provides 4 queen size beds and 3 full baths.

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 in her fourth year of medical school and her play room, still intact, 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.

Why barbara brown chose Pittsburgh area

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; the best martini 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; 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 8. I offer very special discounts for such a rental.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The townhouse exceeded all our expectations. It has such a wonderful ambiance- great for us, and from the looks of the play room, I'd say great for kids too. I felt that we were welcome guests in a gracious home. There is such attention to detail and the whole place is so tastefully decorated - with comfort, wit and great bedding. There are so many extras that I never thought would be in a rental property. I even borrowed the reading glasses as I forgot mine. The place is so neat and yet inviting. Of course, the resort is amazing, and we experienced it all for less than half what it cost us the last time when we stayed at the resort. We will be regulars here. I can't wait until the summer.

Barbara made sure we were fully prepared for everything the property had to offer, so not a minute was wasted. The unit is spotless, well appointed, and beautifully located. Already planning a return trip!

Barb couldn't have been more attentive to the details of her condo. She responded promptly to any inquiry I had before or during our visit. Our visit was memorable.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Barbara was very friendly and always easy to get a hold of for questions. Her condos were very clean and well equipped to handle our big group of 4 adults and 4 kids. The condos had a great layout. They are secluded in the woods at Nemacolin Resort. We have been coming to Nemacolin for years. We have stayed at the Links, Townhomes, Lodge, and even The Falling Rock. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at Barbara's condos. They are well maintained, very clean, great woodland setting in the heart of Nemacolin, secluded, yet all the conveniences Nemacolin has to offer. I can't speak highly enough of Barbara as a renter. She was so pleasant and easy to talk too. She goes over and above to make her guest happy. Great experience and this is coming from a repeat guest at Nemacolin. We will rent from her again. Thank you Barbara.

We loved spending the week at Nemacolin. The condo was nestled in the woods and really gave you a mountain feel while having all the amenities of a resort. This condo is clean and well furnished. I particularly liked not having to pack soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. Barbara was so easy to work with and we want to go back next year!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Nemacolin and we were fortunate enough to have rented this great two bedroom townhouse. It's very well furnished and has every possible amenity. Barbara was a delight to work with and was always very quick to respond to any question I had. The shuttle service meant we didn't ever have to drive and the condo pool was convenient, some days we were the only people there - like having your own backyard pool. Barbara is accurate when she says cell phone and internet coverage is spotty - but a few days being almost disconnected certainly helped me relax!

A wonderful weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Laural Ponds condo. This was my second stay there and I was not disappointed. The condo is comfortable and well stocked. I appreciated the little things like having coffee, tea, oil, salt pepper, etc.

The condo was clean as well.

We could not locate the pool that was for the use of the condos but we enjoyed the pool at the spa. Dinner at Augeous was delicious.

Great time was had by all. We will return.
