Luxury Cottages to be Built at Stonewall Resort State Park


A public-private funding venture has resulted in the first of what could be 20 new luxury cottages in a wooded lakeshore development at Stonewall Resort State Park.

The four-bedroom luxury homes are equipped with amenities such as Wi-Fi, washers and dryers, and gas fireplaces.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports the cottages will be financed by private investors who will own the units, but agree to make them available for public rental.

Richard Ebright, director of operations for Stonewall lodging and recreation concessionaire Benchmark Resorts and Hotels, says roads and utilities are in place to accommodate 14 new cottages, five of which are expected to be built this year. He says the hope is there’s enough interest to build a total of 20.

The development’s opening ceremony was held earlier this month.
