Stonewater Cove Resort and Spa is a luxury lake and forest retreat hidden deep in the Mark Twain National Forest of southwest Missouri’s Ozark Mountains. This gourmet dining-inclusive resort is tucked along the shores of Table Rock Lake, where three rivers meet, and provides a tranquil oasis packed with lakeside lounging havens and guided outdoor adventures on property, including ATV riding, forest canopy zip lining, water sports, hiking, fishing, kayaking, swimming in the lake. There’s a grand lodge with a waterfall-lined pool, dining room, bar, lounge, media rooms, garden walking paths, water fountains and babbling creeks, treehouse spa massages, miniature golf and over 25 miles of hiking trails. With just 25 rooms and suites, and nearly 500 acres to enjoy and discover, it is a private paradise.
Signature Three-bedroom Suite
Size: 1,406 sq ft
Nightly rate from $1,950 to $2,825
The Signature Three-bedroom Suite is situated just feet from the lake (as are all 25 lakeside cabin-like accommodations on property) and walking paths to the lodge, mini-golf course, pool and lakeside amenities such as the swim dock, boat dock, boat ramp and hiking entrances to The Point (the property’s mildest two-mile hiking trail). This suite is the ideal host for larger groups and families as it has four twin-size beds (a bunk and a daybed with a trundle) in the third bedroom, plus a king/twin bunk in the second bedroom. Cozy lake- and forest-inspired interiors feature include polished driftwood furniture, custom-made draperies and lake-home inspired linen, as well as local Ozarks artwork.
Treehouse Spa at Stonewater Cove
The Treehouse Spa is a quiet retreat nestled right along the lake and up in the trees, with three peaceful spa rooms, including a meditation room and two treatment rooms. Guests enter via the meditation room with a windowed wall overlooking the forest canopy and lake. Fully relax into a tranquil state before beginning massage or therapeutic service, and experience an even-deeper sense of calm as you breathe in the grounding and exalting scents of cedar heartwood.
Stonewater Cove has inclusive gourmet dining, with three meals provided for all guests each day, plus hors d’oeuvres, snacks and regular non-alcoholic beverages. The resort has its own garden where a variety of greens and vegetables are grown on-site, and the chefs can tailor the dining experience to meet any individual or group’s needs if requests are made in advance. Special occasions such as weddings and anniversary parties may feature customized menus and other special details, and birthday cakes are available upon request.
There are many adventures to be had in the great outdoors: zip line excursions that fly over the forest canopy from one side of the mountain to the other, criss-crossing the valley of the cove with the best views on the property; ATV tours with more than 25 miles of forest mountain trails for all levels; water skiing, wakeboarding and tubing; canoeing and kayaking; boccee ball and miniature golf; a helicopter tour over Table Rock Lake and professionally guided fishing excursions.
