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, and given our choice as towhat we would like to paint. The instuction was very helpful, but not over powering. Our suite was large with an electric fireplace and two person jacuzzi. The Lodge has a has a large library, and an open meeting area both with huge 6' × 10' hearths. The open area for log and tree burning while the libraries is gas. The ammenities are may, the ecclectic side is a reminder of antiquities and decor of days gone by. Access to dining out in downtown Stillwater is only 5 minutes away. Breakfast is also included. The staff and management provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere
- 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
