Shell Knob, MO Business is an absolute pleasure at Stonewater Cove Resort and Club, where, amid the clear, deep waters of Table Rock Lake and 500 acres of heavily forested wilderness in the heart of the Mark Twain National Forest, the elegant hideaway offers small executive groups with team-building activities, luxe accommodations, and outdoor-inspired meeting space designed to stimulate new ideas and foster cohesion among co-workers.
Debunking the all work, no play philosophy by providing the business set with the very best of both, Stonewater Cove Resort and Club offers an aesthetically-pleasing, elegantly appointed workspace for state-of-the-art conferencing on a smaller, more scenic scale. This principle 750-square-foot meeting area comfortably seats 14 to 16 executives, is infused with warming natural light, yields a view of quiet Table Rock Lake, and offers two custom-made meeting tables crafted from driftwood found in the surrounding forest. Further separating Stonewaters personalized business space from the sterility of a typical, windowless conference room is exclusive access to a covered terrace, with a beautiful stained and stamped concrete floor, upon which to raise a glass to past successes and future triumphs.
Once workday obligations have been met, executives are encouraged to loosen their ties, kick off their stilettos and get down to the business of team-building amid a stunning outdoor backdrop. Stonewater Cove Resort and Club provides numerous activities that demand focus and teamwork to master, such as the low ropes Chevron course. This multi-faceted course requires small groups to work together to complete it. A Trust Fall, Cable Walk, Group Balancing, Rope Swing, Triangle Loop, Spyder Web and Log Walk round out the courses required tasks. Complementing this offering are ATV tours, zip-line rides, archery, horseback riding (in the spring and fall), and a variety of warm-weather aquatic activities (boating, water skiing, tubing, and knee-boarding on Table Rock Lake).
The end of a busy day brings leisure games, fireside chats, and pre- or post-meal cocktails at The Lounge before guests retire for the evening in one of Stonewaters 18 individually designed rooms or suites, each of which incorporates the indigenous beauty of the natural world into a spacious, peaceful space filled with the ultimate in luxe amenities. They include:
