During this week's two-night special, JoJo surprised the guys on "The Bachelorette" with a change of scenery.
The current bachelorette and her suitors started the season in "The Bachelor" Mansion, also known as Villa de la Vina, a sprawling 10,000 square foot Spanish-style estate with amenities that most fans would immediately recognize, like the large pool with a series of archways resembling an aqueduct, the outdoor fireplace and, of course, the fountain located in the front of the house which also serves as the backdrop as each season's new crop of contestants arrives.

The home has a total of six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, making it the perfect pad for 26 men to share as they court last season's runner up. Located at 2351 Kanan Rd in Agoura Hills, CA, the home has reportedly been available to rent for a mere $2,100 a night but, according to a few recent contestants, there has been a family living there recently when the show isn't filming so it might be more difficult to book these days.
If there is a young clan taking up residency at the "Bachelor" estate, that could help explain why the remaining contestants, JoJo and the show's producers suddenly packed up and moved to Pennsylvania. During the latest episode, JoJo and her crew arrived at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in the Laurel Highlands where they worked in some product placement for the hotel between dates. Nemacolin Woodlands Resort sponsored the trip, a smart investment considering most of the hotels featured on the series see an immediate increase in reservations. After being shown on the series back in 2010, Jade Mountain in St. Lucia was at 100 percent capacity for months.
It's hard to deny Nemacolin is a pretty romantic setting for a show about a woman trying to find her soulmate. The full service resort has 320 guestrooms, suites, townhouses and private upscale homes. It also offers championship golf on the Pete Dye-designed Mystic Rock golf course, spa services, a shooting academy, a wildlife academy with safari tours and dog sledding, an adventure center that includes zip lines and a climbing wall, a Jeep off-road driving academy and more, so there is plenty to do on those group dates.
The AAA Five Diamond restaurant Lautrec is just one of the resort's 15 restaurants, so there are plenty of places to eat, too. The hotel also caters to all members of the family with its Kidz Klub and Wooflands Pet Care Center, meaning JoJo could even invite her notoriously overprotective brothers and their families to join her.

In an effort to make the most of its newfound fame, Nemacolin is offering a special package deal to "The Bachelorette" fans that will "inspire them to have a romantic experience of their own." The Red Rose Romance Package starts at $1,536 for two guests with three nights accommodations, a red rose and champagne welcome, the choice of dog sledding or Jeep off-roading (as seen on "The Bachelorette"), breakfast for two each morning and red rose petal turndown each night.
