A great place to stay at in West Virginia for relaxing, golf and a romantic getaway is Stonewall Resort. I could not ask for a more relaxing vacation. The resort combines a unique but rustic charm of 1920s Adirondack style lodges with modern technology.
The 208 guestroom Stonewall Resort is located at 940 Resort Drive in Roanoke, West Virginia overlooking the Stonewall Jackson Lake, which is the second largest lake in the state.
The property spans 2,000 acres and is surrounded by a golf course, lake and Stonewell Resort State Park. So it is the perfect location for all outdoor lovers.
The resort is Four Diamond-rated and once you experience it, you will know why. You have an option of 198 guestrooms, 3 restaurants, indoor/outdoor pools, fitness center, and the Mountain Laurel Spa. You also have the option of staying in one of their ten resort cottages that range from 2-4 bedrooms.
The lobby itself is just purely amazing. As you walk in you will see high wood beam ceilings, stone fireplaces, beautiful oak floors, large chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, along with leather chairs and couches surrounded by glass tables.
Stonewall Jackson Lake- 26 miles long with 82 miles of shoreline. From boating to fishing to swimming, you will enjoy the scenery around the lake.
Nature Trails- enjoy the tranquility of nature while hiking or biking on the resort’s property or in the 18,000 acre Wilderness Management Area adjacent to the resort.

Stillwater’s Restaurant-a casual family atmosphere that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner items from the menu or you can order the buffet. Menu items include items such as BLT, biscuits and Gravy, Hummus Platter, Blackened Catfish Po-Boy, Summer Tomato Pasta and Dry Rub Ribeye.
TJ Muskies Lounge-a place for adults to have a few drinks, play pool, listen to entertainment and grab a bite to eat. Menu items include items like burgers, appetizers and pizzas. I loved the atmosphere in here with the stone walls and then in the middle of the room was a large circled stone fireplace.
I was blown away by the tranquility and beauty of this place. It is the perfect location for a romantic getaway, a honeymoon or business trip with the guys who like to golf. It is definitely nature at its best surrounding this location.
