Finally, the holiday season is nearly in full-force, and the excitement is palpable. Yet, for many of us, normal life routines – work, responsibilities, etc. – make it challenging to devote time to bask in the joy of the season.
Being able to spend quality time with loved ones enjoying the tastes, traditions, and activities of the season is ideal, and there are plenty of ways to do that if you know where to go!
Nestled along a picturesque lake in Roanoke, West Virginia, lies the charming and cozy Stonewall Resort. An expansive cabin-styled resort, Stonewall Resort is the quintessential holiday getaway. If you’ve been dreaming of taking a weekend getaway somewhere festive, a destination where you can be completely immersed in holiday cheer, then Stonewall Resort is the place for you.
This season Stonewall is featuring a series of weekend retreats for their Season of Comfort & Joy. Choose from four different weekends starting at the end of November, through the middle of December. Never exactly the same, the specific activities of each weekend differ, enabling you to choose one that suits your holiday wishes perfectly.
