Nice place to have lunch and relax. Good waitstaff and excellent wrap around patio. Lots of activities on the water. Good place to stay for a few days and enjoy the lake

I do not believe so. It's essentially on the 2nd floor of a converted boathouse. We entered from the resort and it required steep stairs up to the deck. I only went inside use use the restroom and did not see an elevator.

Description
The Boathouse is a lakefront casual dining restaurant specializing in fresh appetizers, great cuts of meat and imaginative fried offerings. The Boathouse is guided by our farm-to-table philosophy, featuring foraged and locally sourced ingredients. Once known as Stoney Lake's oldest pub, it is a popular spot for boaters, locals and visitors every summer. Although the menu has been upgraded, the great views over Stoney Lake are just as incredible.
