Resort Earns Best of the South Award


Stonewall Resort Named “Best of the South Property”


Weston, WV (September 2013) -- Stonewall Resort has been selected as one of the best resort properties in the southern United States, Mexico and the Caribbean in a poll conducted by Meetings Focus Magazine.


Mike Hager, general manager of Stonewall Resort said, “We are proud to accept this prestigious honor that recognizes Stonewall as one of the nation’s best resorts for groups to host meetings.”


According to Karen Smith, vice president of Meetings Focus Magazine, “Our readers were asked to choose their favorite properties considering many key factors: quality of meeting space, guest rooms, staff, food and beverage and value.”


Smith said that Stonewall was chosen in a poll by meeting planners as one of only 70 properties in the entire southern US to receive the award and emphasized, “You should be proud to receive this honor and know that the competition was very stiff.”


Hager offered, “It is very gratifying and a complement to our staff to know that professionals in the meeting planning business, who are very attuned to judging the quality of facilities, have chosen Stonewall Resort for this very meaningful honor.”
