Explore our variety of on-site amenities

Getting a change of scenery is as easy as stepping outside your suite into the amenities at Chartwell Stonehaven. Speaking of outside, our lush outdoor spaces are among our most cherished: enjoy the courtyard or watch for wildlife in our very own backyard. If you’re a foodie, you can try a cooking demonstration in our country kitchen. The inviting TV room is where you’ll catch the big game, the Oscars or the series everyone’s talking about. You can work out in the fitness centre too.
