The building is on the side of a hill, so when you walk in, you are on the 4th floors, and to get to the rooms you go down, not up. Everything looks new, but the architect(s) worked really hard for the old rustic look. All rooms have balconies overlooking the lake. Too bad we couldn’t enjoy them as this... More

Hubby and I have been going almost every year (since we've been married in '03) to celebrate our anniversary for their V-day weekend retreat. The activities are lots of fun and the lady who does massages (Kristie) is FANTASTIC. Couples massages are available. On Saturday night, a candle light prime rib dinner is catered. Usually soft piano music plays while... More

We just spent our Thanksgiving holiday weekend at Trout Lodge. It was an easy 90-minute drive from St. Louis, although the road getting there is very, very dark at night. After an extremely restful sleep, we opened our curtains the next morning to look out at the clarity and beauty of the surrounding countryside and lake. We were amazed at... More

Trout Lodge provided our family a great opportunity to make wonderful memories. There is so much to do so we were all able to find something that we enjoyed. Our children 8 and 11 had the chance to do a few activities that they had never done before as well. (Several of the activities are included in the price of... More

Spent a week in July at Trout Lodge with our family reunion. All ages attended and there was plenty of varied activities for everyone. Loved the international staff members who ran the different activities. They were personable and great with our kids. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful. We were never bored, lots to do. Food was great... More

The staff are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to make sure your experience exceeds expectations. The wide variety of activities (arts and... More

We went from a Sat-Tuesday in late July. The hotel: The hotel is 5 stories with the entrance on the 4th floor. The building was built in 86 and hasn't been updated since... the bed was comy and everything worked fine - just a little old styled. The floors/ceilings were like paper. Got to listen to the kids run around... More

Let me start by saying our family had a fantastic time and we loved all the activities. Never a dull moment! We would definitely come back again! Staff were super nice and helpful. Our only small disappointments were with our room and the food. We had a loft room on the top floor with lots of space and plenty of... More

Lots of things to do but they were always full or closed. The only thing to do was swim. Even the trampoline was closed most of the time. Food was worse than a lunch room. Very disappointing. Staff was friendly. Just book activities a week before your stay.

Just returned from a 4-day stay. Loved the scenery and the lake. I didn't plan to say more but since there is a 200 word minimum here, let me add that I loved the new sailboats and kayaks, available right when I wanted them...
