We loved the fact that the furnishings were original to the house. A wedding was being set up when we arrived so there wasn't an actual guide but a lovely young lady took us through the parts that weren't being used by the wedding party.

The castle was named after the Shawnee chief, Nemacolin, who helped to improve and mark the ancient Native American trail through the Alleghenies. It provides an excellent view into...More
