West Virginia is one of those states that tends to get overlooked when it comes to vacation planning. We find that to be truly unfortunate, as West Virginia offers all kinds of travelers with a multitude of exciting adventures all year round. As the summer heat steadily becomes cooler and the leaves change color, there is no better place than this to experience the wonders of autumn. The Mountain Lakes region is prime for outdoor activities and relaxation and in the heart of this magnificent destination is the elegant Stonewall Resort.
Resting on over 1,900 acres of beautiful natural surroundings and just steps from the waters of Stonewall Jackson Lake, the Stonewall Resort is everything you’re looking for in a laid-back yet exciting vacation. As the only AAA Four-Diamond lakeside resort in West Virginia, Stonewall is truly an exceptional retreat. Their gorgeous Adirondack-style lodge, lakeside saltbox cottages and rustic modern cottages each provide you with comfortable living spaces and amenities to feel perfectly at home throughout your stay. Three onsite dining options provide you with an impressive selection of cuisine that’s sure to satisfy any craving. And when you’re not enjoying all these incredible spoils, the resort’s premier location means you’re never far from all the fun—whether it’s spending an afternoon fishing or exploring the miles of trails on a guided hike.
This fall season Stonewall Resort is making it even easier to indulge in a fun-filled vacation. Starting on September 24th and ending October 29th, you can join Stonewall on the weekends for their Hello, Autumn! getaways. These weekends are jam-packed with exciting activities, live music, and treats. Explore the Artisan Market that features a variety of unique and local products, partake in a fun family-friendly game of Giant Dominoes or Yard Bowling, or simply indulge in plenty of kettle corn and hot cider!
The rest of your trip can be spent discovering all the adventures that West Virginia has to offer. Outdoor recreation is endless here and you’re sure to find something that’s just right for you. Head down to the onsite marina and take out one of their new CraigCat Mini Powerboats to explore the gentle waves, or enjoy a relaxing lake cruise on Little Sorrel which are free for overnight guests. The marina also allows you to rent a boat for a day of fishing for largemouth bass, muskellunge, bluegill, yellow perch and many others.
If you’d like a break from the water, make sure to stop by the onsite Arnold Palmer golf course. Ranked as one of America’s Best Resort Courses and the #2 Public Access Course in all of West Virginia by Golfweek Magazine, their course provide a great opportunity for both the expert and the beginner. There’s also over 16 miles worth of nature trails around the property that’s just waiting for you to explore at your leisure.
"Families and couples alike join us year after year to experience the stunning foliage, refreshing morning strolls around the state park, fireside relaxation, lakeside festivities and more!" said Steve Ludwig, Director of Sales and Marketing.
So what are you waiting for? As Stonewall’s General Manager, Mike Hager, puts it, “This time of the year brings crisp breezes, blue skies, brilliant colors and, of course, the flavors of the season.” Autumn in West Virginia is pretty special, but autumn at Stonewall Resort is something magical indeed. Plan your vacation here today and celebrate the coming season in style.
