Joe Hardy's Nemacolin Resort, located a few miles east of Uniontown, PA (and therefore convenient to the soon to be opened Toll-43) has applied for a Casino Resort license from the State of Pennsylvania. Incidentally, Pennsylvania is likely to approve table games in the next few weeks.

That's the first i've heard of Nemacolin. I done a Google search on it, to find that it is the real deal. But The Greenbrier is still in a league of it's own.

I'm suprised i haven't heard more about it. I've heard lot's about the Homestead in VA. Are there any other Lux resorts in the area that i need to know about? lol I feel like i've lived in a bubble.

Let me clarify- I have not stayed at either, however I have visited both. They are different but both are really high class.

One thing that I liked about Nemocolin was the cool antique / collectable car museum. Very small, but boy was that cool. We just wondered around- nobody was in the museum.

It's relatively young, as resorts go. Originally, it was a private hunting range for the Rockwell family. Joe Hardy (founder of 84 Lumber) purchased it in 1987. There's a pretty good write-up at Wikipedia.

One of the restaurants there is the only AAA 5-Diamond Restaurant between Philly and Chicago. Room rates per night appear to be in the $350-500 range in the winter, $600+ in the summer, so that's certainly within Greenbrier territory.
