It was a very nice resort…comfortable but not luxurious! We enjoyed dinner at the top of the mountain at Lightburn’s. Drinks and bites in the pub and breakfast in the dining room were fine. The pool was nice, and the hot tubs were hot! Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for other activities. Just so you know, you might get a room with dispensers for soap and lotion that rarely work well. Other than that, it was a very pleasant stop!
While most of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic resort destinations are bogged down with COVID Restrictions, the Stonewall Resort in West Virginia is open for business with only a few minor restrictions. The swimming pool is open by reservation capped at 75...which is plenty. No daily maid service, but the staff clears trash and replaces towels as needed. Restaurant is 50% capacity but takes reservations which are highly recommended. We ate at 7 every night the service was very good. But we’re glad we set reservations about a week before our arrival. For those less prone to plan ahead, we observed a steady flow of take out orders, and the outdoor seating looked comfortable. Stonewall is VERY family friendly. We observed many families with young children, but we were also able to keep our 14 and 18 year olds busy. The water sports outfitting with paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes was well managed. I highly recommend renting a pontoon boat from the marina... again we call ahead for reservations. The boats are very nice and clean. The marina staff was excellent, and you can look forward to feeding the mob of pet fish off the marina docks. We started several days with 3-4 mile hikes on the well marked hiking trails. There are both easy and challenging treks. I didn’t golf on this trip, but the course from the road looked well manicured, and a little skinny in a few spots, so bring your straight game. Prior to visiting Stonewall we had cancelled a cruise, and a trip to Arizona... and we’re all trying to figure out where to vacation this year, under the cloud of COVID. We found Stonewall by accident, but it ended up an extraordinary blessing. For our family it’s unanimous, and we’ll return to Stonewall... next time on purpose.…
We recently spent three days at the Stonewall resort in West Virginia. We were eager to use our brand new fishing boat. The lake is one of the most beautiful that we’ve ever seen, the fishing is fabulous, and the peace and serenity on the lake is just what we needed. Our accommodations at the lodge were outstanding, and the food was also very good in the restaurant and in the tavern. We are planning to have the whole family come next year for a reunion. There are plenty of activities that will meet the needs of everyone.
I was on a road trip and only booked one night. Planned on stopping for a little relaxation and a few rounds of golf. From the moment I arrived and was met by the valet, it was everything I hoped it would be. Every single employee I ran into was extremely helpful and pleasant. My room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The grounds were very well taken care of and sitting by the fire pit one evening conversation was easy between a few couples and myself. The golf course, and every employee up there as well, was in great shape and was a great layout. I will be booking again and will bring the wife next time. Walking around part of the lake and seeing all the deer to the overall great peaceful location, if you're in the area, you must visit here.
This was a girls getaway for six of us. It is a wonderful place to stay. We walked around the property some, were given a golf cart tour of the property by Phil, sat around the firepit, enjoyed dinner and breakfast at Stillwaters. All of the staff is very friendly. We spent most of one day in Weston -- Glass museum, boutique, and Appalachian Glass (our favorite), and returned that evening for dinner at Thyme Bistro.. Wished we could have had one more day to enjoy the pool.
