This historic and cozy facility was a wonderful get away for my wife and I. Spacious rooms with nice bathrooms. Very nice breakfast buffet in the morning. Huge fireplace in the lobby at night was warm and cozy. Built in the 1930s, it was incredible to see the old timbers and craftsmanship. The owners are slowly but surely updating aspects... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night and will never go back. It truly was an experience out of the twilight Zone. I see over and over the owners justify the poor condition of the place by repeatedly saying it's suppose to be rustic and more like a farm. I think they are missing everyone's point here. The...

It was a quiet two day get away. Twenty years ago our daughter and son in law were married at the lodge. Many fond memories and pictures. This time we came to make our memories. Those started right away when we met with owner/innkeeper/resident artist for a three hour painting class. The class was complete with wine, a cheeze plate,... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our weekend at the Outing Lodge. We thought the lodge was very interesting. We'd much rather stay somewhere that might need some upgrading but at the same time has character that you'd never find at a chain hotel...that's why you stay at a B&B. They have old timber floors and fireplaces you can walk... More

My husband and I stayed here overnight. This place is lovely! It is cozy and rustic and the dog (Choco) is awesome!. The bed was comfy, the breakfast was delicious and we did a short 3 mile hike right outside the door before we left. The highlight was painting with Carlotta. We drank some wine, nibbled cheese and enjoyed our... More

We had a fabulous time at the Outing Lodge. It was a lovely setting, the people were fabulous and we loved the historic, character-loaded charm of the place. It is a bit rustic (e.g there are not outlets on every wall like you find in newly-built, suburban homes and the décor is probably equivalent to the period), but it was... More

Love the rustic and historic feeling of the lodge. Great hiking and asking trails. Fireplaces are gorgeous. The staff at the lodge are friendly and kind. If you need a quiet getaway I suggest staying at Outing Lodge.

We enjoyed our stay at this inn. We loved the historical elements - it was built in 1858! The fall colors made for a beautiful hike on the many trails around the grounds. We're curious to see how the renovations of the other buildings turn out. The bedding and draperies could use some updating and the bathroom may be due... More

Going to The Outing Lodge is a bit like going to a wealthy aunt's house: it's very friendly and filled with character, but in need of some upkeep. The common areas are very rustic and charming, and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. We were in the Amelia Earhart room, and it also had character, but I must... More

Some- (should I say 'most'? ) B&B are like 'going to your aunt's home: you check-in and you are asked to take off your shoes at the front door, and you are informed at what time the door closes at night. We appreciate your friendly and sincerely caring notes, specially regarding our 'familiar' style of service. However, we disagree with... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
19th Century History Preserved at the Outing Lodge European style 19th century country home, surrounded by lawns and gardens with 300 acres of wooded park land ~ a place where people would go to get away from modern city life. Pine Point was founded in 1858 as Minnesota's second "poor farm," a home for the chronically indigent or those temporarily down on their luck. Stillwater was a wealthy community in 1850, the territorial capital. In this abundant atmosphere, a desire to help the less fortunate culminated in the construction of this poor farm. The prize-winning dairy farm became both a home and a workplace to thousands of needy for almost 100 years. When the farm was closed in 1957, the land was planted in pine trees, now Pine Point Park. The house went on for 20 years as a Rest Home. In the 1980s, to save it from proposed demolition, Lee Gohlike began its renovation. He gutted its interiors with a reverence for its historic past: wide-planked wooden floors cut from old pine beams provide a perfect backdrop to the many elegant antique furnishings, numerous candelabra and massive fireplaces. Featured in Midwest Traveler, Star Tribune and other local & national publications, this beautiful Georgian home is a destination for exclusive retreats & events. Guests enjoy cross-country skiing, horseback and biking trails connecting to the Metro system. Theme dinner calendar of events. ... more   less
