“EXTRAORDINARY RESORT!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Tucked away on a private cove of Tablerock Lake, this luxurious resort offers all the amenities and attention to detail you would expect combined with excellent meals and fantastic activities for all plus a staff whose service is exceptional! You truly have to experience it to believe it!!! We were so blown away that we've already scheduled a vacation for 8 next Labor Day weekend. It is lake vacationing at its absolute finest in a environment where you are totally at peace with nature. For those of you who seek "glamping", search no more!

We stayed this past Labor Day long weekend and we must say this resort lived up to it's reputation! The staff was amazing, so friendly and accommodating, my son who is 4yrs even ended up with a man crush on the Owner, James! EVERYONE was awesome! The food was terrific and we ate like Kings! The resort is gorgeous and the landscaping and scenery will blow you away. We went on ATV's and went zip lining! Soooo much fun! Rented a boat and spent the day on the lake, so much fun. The rooms were awesome too, comfy beds and great bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs and wonderful rain shower. Cant say enough, definitely going back with a big group next time! Thanks again!

Room Tip: There is no Fitness center; however, all the outdoor activities you can imagine!

We stayed for labor day weekend with our two kids. All the other reviews are correct. The resort is a tranquil oasis with beautiful landscaping and fantastic views. We were trying to escape the noise of the city and found that Stonewater Cove truly provided a very quiet retreat. They have put a lot of thought into their grounds and making you feel like you are alone even though there are other resort guests. For instance, there are many small water features which drown out the noise of anyone talking nearby. It truly felt very intimate.

The food was very good. Stonewater Cove has the best all-inclusive food our family has ever eaten. There was plenty of selection. The sunset view from the dining room is staggeringly beautiful. As with the rest of the resort, the service in the dining room was intimate and friendly. The first night for dinner the chef served a blackened catfish salad and a BBQ sampler, both of which were delectable. The second night there was a spinach artichoke dip with crostini, a grilled shrimp caesar salad, and a choice of bacon wrapped filet, hanger steak (? maybe), a third item, and a chicken fried pork chop. Each night also offered a wonderful assortment of desserts, but we chose to make smores at the bonfire and that was really fun! Breakfast included options like chocolate chip pancakes, frittatas, sausage gravy and biscuits, fresh fruit, etc. Lunch items ranged from burgers and fries, to large salads, to quesadillas. The menu for each meal changed each day and items were cooked to order. No lukewarm buffets here! No. The food was fresh and delicious.

Our children had a blast. The pool is very family friendly, although it could use some umbrellas or other shade structures. There is a zero entry area with little water fountains and a small swim-in cave with a waterfall. They also had a small movie theater-like room. When it rained the second day, our kids got to pick a DVD and watch it while we relaxed outside the room (it has windows so you can still see your kids) and read while often gazing at the lake.

My husband got a massage and said it was one of the best he has ever had!

We stayed in a 3-bedroom unit, which was lovely. The beds were very comfortable and the staff made sure we had everything we needed. By the time we left, we were feeling very much "at home." We plan to return in the future.

We only had one night due to our road trip to spend at this incredible resort. Every review is exactly right. The rooms, food, design, and location are worth the price. The staff was very friendly. The owner was on site and was very informative and always made sure we were not in need of anything. The night bon-fire in June was very nice and relaxing. We will bring our friends back with us next year for a longer stay.

Modern, yet rustic. Elegant, yet outdoorsy. I am not an outdoorsy girl, yet I loved this place! Beautiful, clean rooms with modern conveniences. The food....oh my lord the food!! It's a vacation, plan to put ona few lbs and enjoy yourself! You name it, they have it, or they'll make it! Elegant, gourmet, multiple courses. I honestly think this place would do great opening the restaurant to the public, but I know they want to "save" it for their guests. I get it.
We rode atv's with a guide through amazing property and trails! It was a blast!!
Remote, quiet, excellent customer service, fancy, woodsy, clean, new, relaxing, fresh.

Thank you for your review! We, at Stonewater Cove, just wanted to make sure the public knew that The Lodge restaurant at Stonewater Cove Resort and Spa is open to the public for Dinner by Reservation Only. Dinner reservations for non-overnight guests are subject to availability, and are recommended to book at least 3-4 days in advance. From gourmet barbeque to five course meals and regionally themed nights such as Italian, our staff will be happy to share what is planned for the menu with just a few days notice. From all of us at Stonewater Cove, thank you for the wonderful review. We hope to see you again soon - Happy Vacationing (& Eating!)

I wasn't sure what to expect since I booked our vacation online, and we had never been to this part of Missouri. This is an AMAZING place to stay. The food is great. The chef and bartender are awesome. Resort accommodations were excellent. We enjoyed zip lining, hiking, kayaking, swimming. And the stars at night. I have never stayed somewhere with so much attention to detail. We will be back again soon!

Great location and resort accommodations and activities were excellent. Many activities for all ages. The facilities are very well maintained and the staff are friendly and helpful. The food was truly outstanding. If you are looking for a high quality resort on Table Rock Lake this is the resort to consider. We had ages 3 to 60+ and all had a great experience. The property owners and staff made every effort to make sure we had access to everything we wanted and were happy with all aspects of the resort. The Lake is beautiful.

Room Tip: The 1 and 2 bedroom suits are very comfortable and each is uniquely decorated.
