Shell Knob, Missouri – Too much of today’s modern lifestyle is spent cooped up in a stuffy office, sitting in slow-moving traffic or breathing in smog-heavy air. Add the chance to reconnect with nature – via fresh air, gorgeous forests, stunning sunsets and bountiful activities – to your list of new year’s resolutions. Schedule a trip to Stonewater Cove Resort and Club, a Table Rock Lake resort that rests in the heart of the Mark Twain National Forest.
Stonewater Cove Resort and Club features 18 individual designed rooms or suites and a stunning stone and wood lodge, which brings the essence of the untarnished wilderness into a spacious, peaceful room with the ultimate in luxe amenities. Here is a top-ten list of ways you can get in touch with nature as you explore the resort’s nearly 500-acre outdoor playground during your stay:
A day spent outdoors also requires a peaceful sleep – and the resort’s rooms and suites are designed to ensure a restful slumber. King or queen-sized beds – custom-made with driftwood from the nearby forest – beckon with their plump pillows, soft sheets and plush down comforters. Step into your elegant, spacious bath – elegantly decorated with knotty alder cabinets as well as solid, hand-stained oak and cedar trim – to soak in the heavenly bubble tub or the rainfall shower room.
Refuel after a long day spent outdoors with gourmet creations from the resort’s chef, who develops a new menu each day. The Lodge restaurant, which features stunning views of the fog lifting off of Table Rock Lake as the sun rises in the morning, also serves made-to-order breakfast. And, if your day is filled with back-to-back activities, you can request a boxed lunch to take along on your outdoor excursions.
