Cannot say enough good things about Stout's Island Lodge. Quaint, historical, charming and magical. From the moment you step into the boat to head over to the island to you final look-back, it's perfection in the north woods. We visited on a Sunday and Monday in August (for my birthday) and I couldn't have asked for a better stay anywhere. The lodge is so fun to explore, the food was outstanding. I had the best trout I've ever had our first night there. We used almost every amenitie on the island - we played croquet on the beautiful court in front of the lodge, we hiked the trails, we hyro-biked around the island and took the double kayak and explored a few water-lily filled inlets, we played ping-pong, swam to the swim platform, enjoyed fantastic meals, took in the bonfire and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everyone was friendly & accommodating (free dessert for my birthday). The breakfast were great for grab & go - hard-boiled eggs, warm banana bread, yogurt & more. It's a little worn about the edges in spots, but it adds to the charm. Cannot gush enough about what a wonderful time we had.
Also, they had well issues on our 2nd day, so we were upgraded and moved from Douglas (huge room) to Shore Lodge #1. Gorgeous room and they were simply wonderful about getting us set up. LOVE Stout's Island Lodge.
