Stonehaven provides excellent trails for the silent sports enthusiast! In 2016 when we first bought the property we began to carve out beautiful trails for our future guests to enjoy. We spent a year planning and creating several trails that now wind throughout our 40 acres. Bring along your binoculars to enjoy the birds and wildlife as you walk along Tenderheart Trail! Or take an early morning cross-country ski on Sunrise Trail as the sun comes up and peeks through the trees to say good morning! We take our dog Reggie on daily walks on various trails, but his personal favorite is Cherry Tree Trail because he knows that’s the one that leads down to the lake!
All boats can be checked out through the office and have the following charges. You may reserve in advance or just let us know when you get to the resort what boats you are interested in. All of our boats are launched through our own private dock.
Non-Motorized Boats - Complimentary
Motor Boats - $20/4 hours, $40/day, or $200/week
Pontoon Boats - $25/hour, $75/4 hours, $125/full day or $500/week
Bring Your Own Boat or Motor
Guests are welcome to bring their own boat as long as it is under 16 feet or less and not an inboard. We also do not allow jet skis, speed boats, and wave runners. Tuscobia Lake has areas that have underwater stumps that are not conducive to high speed boating. We like to know for parking how many guest boats are coming so please let us know if you are bringing a boat. The unofficial boat launch is at the south end of the lake on 23rd Ave about a half mile from our resort entrance.
Most of the lake is weedy and not ideal for swimming, but the north end is 25 feet deep and is perfect for jumping off the pontoon or tubing behind it! Swim at your own risk, there is no lifeguard on duty.
Tuscobia Lake is a 176 - acre spring fed lake that yields a variety of fish, including northern pike and panfish. Spring crappie and bass fishing are the Romportl family’s favorites. Although working at the resort leaves little time to fish, Ted and Lori can direct you to where they have heard others are having luck.
Other good spots for anglers within ten miles of the resort are Rice Lake, Long Lake, and Bear Lake to name a few. The Northwood’s is home to literally thousands of lakes and dozens of streams and rivers, making it one of the top Midwest fishing destinations. Don’t forget to purchase a Wisconsin fishing license before embarking on your Northwood’s adventure.
Both kids and adults are encouraged to bring ice skates to the resort to practice your figure eights on a beautiful frozen lake! During the Christmas Holidays we try to keep an ice rink open on the lake for guests to use. Ice Skating is completely weather dependent, but during this time we do all we can to keep a rink open. During the rest of the winter the city of Rice Lake keeps a flooded rink open offering skating.
We have some awesome sledding hills for small children and adults alike! We provide a variety of sleds at no extra charge for your downhill enjoyment!
We provide the following opportunities for your family's enjoyment: bocce ball, bean bag toss, and frisbee.
