Shell Knob, Missouri – Nestled in the lush green wilderness overlooking Table Rock Lake, Stonewater Cove Resort and Club sits in the heart of the Mark Twain National Forest on nearly 500-acres filled with hand-carved trails, hidden alcoves, moss-covered rock formations and untamed animals. The secluded, Shell Knob, MO resort showcases a stunning stone and wood lodge and 18 individually designed rooms or suites that bring the essence of the untouched wilderness into a spacious, peaceful room with the ultimate in luxe amenities. Here you can embark on an adventure with outdoor activities that test your limits, and then retire to rest, relax and be pampered in the beautiful surroundings.
At Stonewater Cove Resort and Club, just opened in mid-2008, you can escape from your hurried, over-scheduled lifestyle and experience the tranquility and adventure found only in the forest. Walk through the magnificent lodge and marvel at its stunning fireplaces – surrounded with polished and glazed preserved driftwood standing 20-feet tall – and at the peaceful, stunning views of Table Rock Lake. Our friendly staff will welcome you upon arrival, valet your car, take your bags to your room and give you a tour of Stonewater Cove.
Settle in to your individually designed room, with coffered ceilings, handsome dark wood floors, and custom-made driftwood furniture. Sink into the high-thread count sheets, alternative down comforters and thick coverlets. Or, don a plush terry bath robe and ease into your separate bath with knotty alder cabinets, solid hand-stained oak and cedar trim, a heavenly bubble tub and a rainfall shower room – elegantly decorated with ceramic and travertine tile. The rooms also feature flat-screen televisions with satellite cable, complimentary wireless internet access, mini-refrigerator with an ice-maker, as well as coffee and teas.
Enjoy the peaceful quiet of this wilderness getaway. Sit in the comfortable rocking chair on your private deck and gaze upon the miles upon miles of rolling tree-lined hills that comprise the Mark Twain National Forest. Pamper yourself with a customized deep tissue or relaxation massage or a hot rock massage in our treatment room. Go for a gentle stroll on the many walking paths to view the beautiful landscaping that highlights how our wood and stone lodge blends into the ancient Ozark Highlands. Don’t forget to go for a lazy swim in our outdoor pool – heated to perfection even in milder temperatures – or even to lounge poolside and inhale the sweet scents of the surrounding country.
A delectable dinner awaits you at The Lodge restaurant. The chef creates a different, inspired menu each day that’s designed to tempt your palate and fulfill your latest culinary desires. Scrumptious offerings range from barbeque ribs to horseradish-encrusted Tilapia to fettuccini gorgonzola pasta topped with filet medallions in a sweet balsamic reduction. The restaurant offers breathtaking views of the sun setting over the lake and forest hills, as rosy pinks, fuchsias, peach oranges and cascading indigos paint the sky. In the morning, enjoy a view of the fog lifting off Table Rock Lake while enjoying your made-to-order breakfast. Planning a busy day in the wilderness? Request a boxed lunch to take along during your outdoor excursions.
Nature-lovers can enjoy any number of activities in the enchanting, untarnished forest that will fast become a playground for children of every age. Hand-crafted trails offer numerous opportunities for hikes or bike-riding. Or, search for a quiet meadow to stretch out and read a good book. Professional and friendly guides can take you on a popular ATV tour, zip-line or ropes course or teach you the tricks of archery or skeet shooting. A nature discovery or photography hike can also expose hidden wonders of the wilderness. Water enthusiasts can wakeboard, hone their water ski skills, or ride a tube as leisurely or wildly as they dare. Sneak in some fishing in the quiet waters of Table Rock Lake or take a boating excursion and view the vast beauty of the lake and Mark Twain National Forest. When the day is done, stop by our warm bonfire for some stargazing and s’ mores.
