I recently attended a wedding at the Stonewall Resort and left for the most part impressed.
We decided to go ahead and book a room at the resort to avoid any DUIs after celebrating a friend's wedding. Got a rate of $127.99 online which ended up being a little over $150 after taxes and a "resort fee" was added. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of many of the amenities included in the resort fee due to the short length of our stay. The resort is actually located inside a state park. We stopped at a guard house and told the employee inside we were attending a wedding and she directed us to the lodge. The entrance to the lodge is a walk from the parking lot so if you have substantial luggage you may want to use the valet parking (no charge except for a tip).
Check in was uneventful, we stowed our luggage in the room. While the lodge itself is very nice with a very tasteful rustic look, the rooms seemed to be very average. They were clean but unremarkable. The room we booked had a king sized bed and a couch with a small desk also. Wifi is provided at no charge and I had no problems connecting with my iPod Touch. When I made my reservation online, I had asked for a room both overlooking the lake and close to the wedding location and I feel they accommodated me on both counts. The evening wedding and reception were held outside on the ground floor terrace. The weather was beautiful, the staff was great and we had a good time. After the reception ended, the majority of the attendees headed to the hotel bar, TJ Muskies. Once again the staff was great. There is a pool table and a mid-room fireplace. The big hit of the evening was a large firepit area outside on the bar patio. The staff already had a nice fire going when we arrived and there is a ton of seating around it. We headed back up to the room around 1 AM. The bed was comfortable but the one problem I had with the visit was the bedding, the sheets were horrible. It was like sleeping on butcher paper. There was no comforter provided and the only blanket was cheap and plastic feeling. Considering this is a AAA four diamond rated establishment, I expected the bedding to be a bit higher quality.
Check out in the morning was also uneventful, the staff was very cordial.
