Stonewall Resort's New Year's Eve celebration offers friends and family the opportunity to ring in the new year in a cozy, secluded atmosphere brimming with delectable culinary creations and lively entertainment.

Steve Ludwig, director of sales and marketing for the Four Diamond Stonewall Resort, said, "Our New Year's Eve festivities will be spread throughout the Grand Hall, TJ Muskies lounge and Stillwaters Restaurant. There will be an array of food, dessert and drink options, as well as live entertainment provided by Grayson Samples, Dustin McCray and the Stalnaker Brothers."

Resort Executive Chef Paco Aceves has planned a decadent dinner menu to be served buffet style. The menu begins with a delectable seafood ice bar, featuring green lip mussels, scungilli salad and shrimp with a host of accompaniments. A winter harvest salad, mixed green salad, as well as winter squash bisque and truffle essence soup, will fill the second course. Entrees include roast prime rib with horseradish cream, mustard and maple glazed pork loin, smoked Appalachian chicken with mushrooms and roasted flounder stuffed with crab, along with several delicious side offerings. And for dessert, guests can choose from chocolate gateaux with brandied cherries, stollen, apple strudel, almond cheesecake, pumpkin cranberry roll and a cheese board.

Dinner will be served from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. in Stillwaters Restaurant. The cost is $32 per person and reservations are requested. Live entertainment will begin in the resort lobby at 6 p.m. with the musical duo of Grayson Samples and Dustin McCray. A cash bar will be offered. Local favorites the Stalnaker Brothers will perform in Muskies Lounge from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.

A special lodging rate of $139 per room that includes breakfast for two the next morning is being offered for those that would like to stay overnight on Dec. 31. Guests can also take advantage of $79 room rates the nights of Dec. 30 and Jan. 1.
