““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
AAA Five Diamonds for Nemacolin Falling Rock
Nemacolin Falling Rock, a woodlands resort in the Laurel Mountains south of Pittsburgh, has been awarded AAA Five Diamond status, a designation held by fewer than 90 North American hotels and resorts.
We featured Nemacolin in our Getaways department in February/ March 2005 and, more recently, BJT contributor Nigel Moll drove a BMW M6 convertible to the resort (see page 58 of our June/July issue). "The food at Nemacolin remains excellent, and the service and surroundings are flawless," reported Moll. "It's a great place for recharging and refreshing."
The resort features an 18-hole golf course that hosts the PGA Tour 84 Lumber Classic as well as a 3,900-foot-long hard runway (but no fuel).
