We have been to Stonewall twice over the past couple of years. Once in the fall when the leaves were just gorgeous and most recently this spring. On both occasions we had a wonderful relaxing time. It's a great place for kids. Lots of outdoor activities and not overly formal. I wouldn't stay more than 2 or3 days unless you are ok with repeating activities. Lots of trails to hike, biking,canoes, kayaks and swimming all for a flat $15 daily resort activity fee. They have a casual pub style restaurant and their main restaurant where you can either order a buffet meal or off of the menus. The breakfast buffet is tremendous . We did the dinner buffet and for the cost I was disappointed. Lots of variety but it just didn't do it for me. Next time I will order off of the menu.
There isn't much to do there in the evenings. They do have a fire pit where the kids can make s'mores ($10 for a kit that makes 4). I say bring your own ingredients. The pool is open until 11:00.; but that's it. We usually play cards in the lobby or go back to our room for TV time.
The spa is very nice. I've enjoyed time there on both visits but you do have to plan ahead and make appointments. My 14 year had a golf lesson with the golf pro for an hour for $25 which I felt was very reasonable. The pro was very kind, helpful and even went back to the clubhouse and typed up some notes for him to take home.
It was a great weekend. Would like to see it in the winter but am concerned that there wouldn't be enough to do since many of the outdoor activities would not be available. Highly recommend a visit. You won't be disappointed.
