Cobblestone Lodge
Reviewed July 12, 2006

We stayed at Cobblestone Lodge last week and my family loved it! The hosts are extremely pleasant and the other guests were very outgoing and friendly, and quite entertaining! Although the accommodations are a bit rustic (old furniture, window air conditioning units, etc.) the atmosphere itself was wonderful. There are no TV's or computers, yet you don't even notice because there is always something to do there. We could float on the Meremac twice a day, which is included in the price of your stay. It is a short float...approximately 2 miles or so. There is also an innertube float which is maybe a 1/2 mile and it is very relaxing and fun! The pool was nice and the hot tub really helped when my husband threw his back out in a game of softball in the middle of the week! There is a lot for the kids to do, and a lot of other kids for them to make friends with! And I've never laughed so hard when we joined in the square dancing! Many late evenings were spent in the gazebo playing a game of cards or Scrabble, and the mornings were spent playing in tournaments like Shuffleboard, Bocce Ball, or Washers! Even the meals were tasty and it seemed like we were constantly hearing the bell ring for dinner time because the week went by so quickly. And if you didn't like what they served, they had a salad bar to satisfy your hunger. 3 meals a day, planned entertainment, and the ability to let your kids have fun while you relax all week long? What a bargain! We will definitely be returning next year!

I have gone to Cobblestone for years. I love the ambience and old-time feeling. The original owner was a tap-dancer in New York. Boy, could she entertain us! Her grandson now runs the lodge. If you want a get-away, with no TV or computer this is the place to go. Beautiful woods, simple lifestyle. I go every year when possible to paint. The cabins have a small screened in porch and everything smells like the woods! Just down in Steelville are horses to rent/ride.

Food is family style, but not much fruit so I suggest you take (or buy) your own orange juice, etc.

Movie night still consists of "Mr. McGoo" from a 16mm projector shown on a white sheet! Just couldn't be better than this. So if you are looking for something different and back to the basics, I delifintely recommend this place. It is only 1 of 3 left in the U.S.

Blessings. Tina Wright, MSEd.

We thought it would be quaint and fun, but it was not a pleasant experience.
They advertise as providing canoeing and tubing and rafting on the Meramac river - but this was very limited. Plus there was only one large raft. The canoes were very old and ours had a small leak. They would not allow you to take the inner tubes down to their access to the river unless it was the designated float time.

The accomodations had extremely old furniture and they were small cabins.
They had a nice large one for bigger families- but wouldn't allow us to change even though it was not going to be rented out until the day we left!
Our cabin leaked and had obvious water damage, but they acted as if it was the first time.

The food was plentiful, but very standard - family style. Soda and snacks were extra. The game room things like the pool table and pinball cost extra.

The staff was polite, but not willing to be very flexible.
Not a repeat for us... But some of the other folks have visited this lodge for years... They had much younger children too. Our kids were 11 to 17.
