There's a Buncha Fun to Be Had!

beach If some members of your family feel left out because they don't fish or ski, there is a lot more to do during your vacation at Stonehouse Timber Lodge. 

You will find stuff to do on shore as well as on the water. The spirit of community at Stonehouse Timber Lodge will open new friendships while the quiet serenity of the gentle surroundings will relax and refresh you.
Swim area

Our swimming area is safely away from the boating channel. Your whole family can enjoy swimming and playing there without fear of heavy wakes or careless boaters ruining your day. Your family will also enjoy hanging out on our spacious decks. There they will find a good place to read or talk - maybe take in a little sun.

If your non-water people want more to do, they can make a short trip to Roanoke Rapids for shopping, movies and other entertainment. Rocky Mount is bigger but takes a little longer to get there - an hour or so. Warrenton has a nice historic district with antique shops and other points of interest.
However, there is a lot to do right around the lake. Let us know what you want to do and we will tell you where to do it. A short list in included below.
