Even though the weather was cool and drizzly for part of our stay, the library was stocked with lots of interesting books and the couches were so comfy. We caught up on our reading AND our napping. Food was excellent as well. Thank you Stouts Staff!!

This was our first stay at Stout's, but have heard many good things about this island lodge. We stayed here the first weekend in October, which just happened to be a very cold weekend in the 30s and 40s after the previous weekend's 80 degree days. Our room was great with beautiful views of the lake with lots of sun... More

Thank you for the fantastic time! The lodging was beautiful and peaceful, the food delicious, and the party very fun! My grandkids danced until they fell asleep! Stout's has provided our family with many wonderful memories.

We stayed on Stouts over MEA and had a picture perfect weekend! We fished, kayaked, hiked, read, played Monopoly and ran around the big yard with flashlights in the dark. My kids loved it and can't wait to go back. Wilson 1 was perfect - clean and comfy, the right amount of room and a great view. This was my... More

The Island Of Happy Days is a respite of perfect serenity hidden in the middle of northern Wisconsin. I hope that it doesn't catch on too much so I can still go there. One of the best ways to spend a weekend with someone special. My wife and I were able to get away and fully recharge from many long... More

We just finished a long weekend in late October at the lodge. Weather was cool and breezy with losts od sun our last day. The staff is friendly and helpful. We loved Lodge 5 room because it was rustic with a wood burning fireplace. This was our first time at the lodge and we have booked for a long weekend... More

We had a great time during our visit to Stout's Island Lodge. The pick up on shore was right on schedule and check in was a breeze. We stayed in two rooms while we were there, Wilson 1 and Alison 1. Both were very nice but Alison 1 is really a gem. Great views. Cozy. Spacious for two adults and... More

We just stayed mid-week in the off season so our experience seems to be a bit different from some of the reviews. We had two picture perfect weather days - colors were just past peak and were amazing. We stayed in Shore Lodge 2 - an upgrade from the Shore Lodge 5 we had booked through a Travel Zoo promotion....

Ok so my review might be long but here goes.. went to a wedding there in June 2014. Reserved 2 rooms at wedding discount rate still were $270-$300 + per night. My son and wife rented a room at same rate. First of all we were told that the "boat" to the island would depart on the hour all day... More
