The property and cabins were gorgeous. The guys driving the ferries were so friendly and helpful. Denise was fantastic! Other than that...I can't recommend coming here. Our first night on the island was really fun and our entire group was talking about coming back for a week in the summer. Starting on Saturday most of the staff we encountered were... More

While the time period of Stout's Island Lodge actually dates back to 1903, one can't help but feel like a character in The Great Gatsby. This vacation getaway is ideal for guests who "want to get away from it all" and can enjoy pure relaxation. If you enjoy leisurely strolls, reading, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, sunbathing, and/or swimming, this place is... More

I have to admit, I was pretty nervous after reading some negative reviews of Stout's Island Lodge on TripAdvisor prior to our stay in early September, 2014. But now that I have experienced Stout's Island, I get it. This place is CLEARLY not for everyone. Sure, the dining room is short staffed, a wrinkle that hopefully will get worked out... More

My teen daughter and I came here for a special mom/daughter weekend. The property and our lodging exceeded expectations. Our room in the Katherine cabin was large, comfortable and immaculate. There are no locks on the outside of the doors so while you can lock your door from the inside at night, you can't lock your door when you leave... More

This is not a hotel. It is a historic lodge, over a century old, with all the quaint and quirky features that implies and none of the bland normality of many hotels. The first clue should come from the fact that you need a boat to get there. So the rooms do not have TVs (though there is a TV... More

The island and water are gorgeous, the lodge stunning and cozy, the care and sincerity of the staff is evident. Owners and staff are truly doing everything possible to keep the place clean and in good repair. There is really nothing like this place. We love it and will return next year without a doubt. From the boat drivers to... More

We stayed over Labor Day weekend for the first time and loved this place. From the moment we got on the boat to go over to the island we felt special. The staff was great. "Shout outs" to Kyle and to Doug, both very friendly, hard-working and helpful above and beyond. The atmosphere on the island is one of relaxation... More

One of our favorite places! We have stayed at Stout's Island for at least one night in August when we return home from the Minnesota State Fair. The site is spectacular. Food is excellent and the staff is very attentive. Every evening features a bonfire and we always enjoy the nature trails.

I went to Stout's Island Lodge for an OLLI seminar, so our group used their meeting space, enjoyed their out doors beauty and ate their wonderful food. The staff bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable!

I have to give it a very good rating, as it is so beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. The rustic boathouse, the log built lodge, and the grounds are beautiful. You can use the canoes, kayaks, and peddle bike free of charge. Breakfast is free. They have bonfires at night, and a trail to hike. We also got a $50.00 dining... More
