Stout's Island Lodge is a vintage Adirondak style "camp" that reminded me of vacationing upstate New York as a child-- rustic and gorgeous. My room in Allison's Cottage had a view of the treetops and the lake. Evenings always included a fire in the lodge's fieldstone fireplace and fabulous dinners with a northwoods theme. The desserts are to die for. No television or noise. Lots of canoes, kayaks, paddleboats, croquet on the lawn, and footpaths for walking. I spent the weekend in a haze of happiness and peace. When the time came to leave, it wasn't easy. I will be returning every summer.

- Stout’s Island Lodge sits proudly in the center of Red Cedar Lake – an 1800-acre lake in northeastern Barron County, Wisconsin. There are two island connected by a 100 ft. walking bridge (given to Frank Stout by Andrew Carneige). The two islands have a combined acreage of 18 acres. All lodging is located on the western of the two islands; the East Island has walking trails as well as a small picnic cabin on the northern tip. Red Cedar Lake is known for its water quality, its fishery and for its relative quietude. ... more less
