“Level of Service Unsurpassed in Western Pennsylvania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

In evaluating hotels, a big part of the equation is judging what you receive for your dollar. Falling Rock is expensive, make no mistake. Importantly, it's worth it. For the price of a room at a midtown Manhattan Hampton Inn, you get a truly unsurpassed lodging experience. Located near the first tee of Nemacolin Woodlands fabulous Mystic Rock golf course (home until recently to a PGA event), Mystic Rock's design takes its inspiration from architect Frank Lloyd Wright. It's common areas -- the vast, open main gallery, the restaurant -- derive much light from the generous windows ensconcing the building. The interior is rustic, with rough stones creating a natural feel to the interior.

Guest rooms are spacious with massive windows looking to the golf course or to the grounds of the resort. Bathrooms are amazing, with huge tubs.

And while these trappings are wonderful, it's the level of service that the property presents which sets it apart. Each guest room is assigned a butler, who caters pretty much to whatever need you may have. Need your clothes pressed? Need a bath drawn? Need shoes shined? They gladly will assist.

Outside, the hotel features an "infinity pool" looking out to the 18th hole of the golf course, with a view of the now (unfortunately) unused leader board. It's a real treat, and the only one I have seen anywhere in western Pennsylvania.

This is a small property -- just 42 guest rooms. But you do feel like you are one of the lucky few when you're there.

All in all, if you are staying at Nemacolin, and you're willing to part with the scratch, Falling Rock offers a memorable and elegant experience.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

I am truly fortunate as this is my second stay at Falling Rock. This gorgous 42-room boutique hotel is an immaculate representation of architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water. Attention to detail is unsurpassed at Falling Rock, where each guest is catered to by a personal butler available 24-hours a day. Prepare for the most beautiful sleep of your life as you choose your pillow preference from Falling Rock's 19-option pillow menu, slip between the 1200 thread count sheets, and cover up in hand-sewn chenille bedding. Dine at the four-diamond Aqueous offering delicious steaks and seafood. Play a round of golf on Pete Dye's Mystic Rock, where you're in for a real challenge. Falling Rock is only open five months of the year, so make sure to make your reservations beginning in May. I highly recommend visiting Falling Rock, it is truly an experience like none other.

Room Tip: Every room is perfect.
