The room was good. The bathroom was okay needed a shower head in bathtub. I enjoyed the lakefront restaurant. Lots of wildlife to enjoy. Trails were good and the lake was beautiful. I also enjoyed the sports bar restaurant. The front entrance was impressive and the service by valet and bell boy was awesome. Checkout was quick and easy and no problems.
My husband and I made our first trip to Stonewall Resort for the dueling piano show and everything about our trip was amazing. Stonewall Resort was immaculate, staff was very friendly, the food at the restaurants in the lodge is delicious. It is nice to have everything all in one place. The piano show was entertaining, so fun and a night to remember. We will definitely be returning to the resort when we have the opportunity to stay longer. I highly recommend them.
