Pursue Your Happiness at this Quintessentially American, Nearly 500-Acre Luxury Lakefront Adventure Resort Nestled Deep in the Wilderness of Missouri’s Mark Twain
Table Rock Lake, Missouri – Celebrate the 4th of July this year by declaring independence from the hustle and bustle of modern life at a luxurious lakefront adventure retreat where the stars all but outshine the fireworks in a forest as lush and pristine as it was in 1776.
Stonewater Cove Resort and Club is located on the nearly 850 miles of shoreline Table Rock Lake, known as one of the clearest freshwater lakes in the world, deep in the heart of Missouri’s Mark Twain National Forest. This Small Luxury Hotels of the World property showcases a stunning wood and stone lodge, complete with a cozy, posh lounge, restaurant, media room, and outdoor, waterfall-lined pool and hot tub, as well as docks and a boat ramp, more than 20 miles of hand-crafted trails and a unique new Treehouse Spa premiering in late May 2011.
Each of Stonewater Cove’s 21 individually-designed rooms or suites incorporate the indigenous beauty of the natural world into an airy, peaceful space adorned with aesthetically pleasing coffered ceilings, handsome dark wood floors, and custom-made driftwood furniture and art showcasing the local talent of the Ozarks. Amenities include the resort’s signature “bubble tubs” and large rainfall shower rooms elegantly decorated with ceramic and travertine tile, plush high-thread count sheets, alternative down comforters and thick coverlets, terry bathrobes, Eco Boutique bath toiletries, a flat-screen television with satellite cable, a mini-refrigerator with icemaker, coffee, teas, and complimentary wireless high-speed internet and valet parking.
Stonewater Cove meal plans include daily breakfast and lunch (by the pool, in the lounge, or boxed up for picnics mid-hike), and dinner that changes every night from 5 course meals to Italian nights to gourmet barbeques. Quintessential American snacks such as S’mores and homemade potato chips and regular non-alcoholic beverages are also included with the nightly meal plan.
Non-guided activities include canoeing, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking and dock fishing. Guided activities are also available a la carte or as part of Active and Adventure packages, including:
* Water Sports: Make a splash with a variety of water sports, including wakeboarding, water skiing, kneeboarding and tubing. More advanced water skiers can try the tournament slalom ski course, just three minutes from the resort via boat.
* ATV Tours: Rides can be as mild or daring as your skills and desires allow.
* Zip-Lines: Take in an expansive, eagle eye’s view of the ancient Ozarks as you soar through and over the forest canopy on one of the resort’s five zip-lines.
* Clay Shooting and Archery Sessions: Practice shooting clay disks on the high prairie land with personalized instruction and a “Here to have fun” attitude, or perfect your archery skills – getting in touch with the country’s native roots.
* Boating: Enjoy our professionally-guided luxury powerboat fleet and choose from a leisurely cruise along Table Rock Lake, or the adrenalin-rush of the jet boat that can take you for a quick, thrilling dunk.
Be sure to leave time before or after the fireworks for some extra oohs and ahhs (emphasis on the aaaahhs) with a visit to the new Treehouse Spa, which will offer a selection of expert treatments. Nearly an entire wall of each treatment room will be glass so that guests can enjoy a sweeping view of the red and white oak, cedar, juniper, hickory, and sycamore filled forest and the gentle shoreline waves of Table Rock Lake. All treatments will feature organic products reflecting the pristine, natural setting of the resort and spa.
