I've never been there myself, but I've heard great things about Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. It is 70 miles south of Pittsburgh.

Here is the link for kids activities, which mentions their pool. You can get to the rest of the site from there.

Have you looked at Idlewild? If you like racing, Jennerstown is right there too.

I used to work at Nemacolin when in college. They have tons of activities, but it is very, very expensive...I'd say not worth it actually.

I don't know anything about Greenbriar, but I know it is within driving distance from Pgh. and I've heard a lot about it being family-friendly.

Another option is Seven Springs. It is less expensive, they have fun activities (definately not as upscale as Nemacolin though if that's what you're looking for), and there are tons of things to do in the area (Ohiopyle, Fallingwater, Hidden Valley Resort, etc). It is only about an hour from the eastern side of Pgh. Here's the website: www.7springs.com.

Let me know if you're interested, I know a lot about this area.

We really love going to Deep Creek, MD. Its about 3 hours from PGH. I'm not sure about a pool, but there is plenty of public beaches on the lake.

You've got to try the Stonewall Resort. It's a short drive from Pittsburgh and a beautiful property. My husband and I have stayed there several times. http://www.stonewallresort.com.

It's perfect for a getaway weekend with your 3-year old. They have a nice indoor/outdoor pool and the scenery is just breathtaking.

How about Oglebay Park Lodge in Wheeling, WV. The lodge is very nice with a great indoor pool complete with waterfalls. They have cottages to rent, too. Also on the grounds are beautiful gardens, a terrific zoo with wild and domestic animals, a great playground, discovery zone, glass museum, golf course, fishing lake, etc. You can get more information at Oglebay-resort.com.

You have to try Stonewall Resort, in Ronoke WV! A short 2 hr. drive from Pgh. straight down I-79. It's beautiful and so down-to-earth. Not snobby like some resorts. My husband and I go every year for our Anniversary in Jan. and in addition this year took our 3 kids for a Mother's Day weekend. The pool is awesome. They have a "kids camp" type of activities. But even without that, there are hiking trails (easy ones around the lake for a three year old). It's on Lake Stonewall Jackson and there is a free sunset cruise around the lake and free boat usage. The food in the resturant, Stillwaters, is fabulous as is the food is the lounge! You should check it out! Also an Arnie Palmer golf course and cabins or houseboat rentals! Oh did I forget the spa?!...Awesome! Everything you could want and so close!
