We made our first visit in over 6 years back to the Trout Lodge this weekend and I am happy to report it continues to expand their programs and the experience there for the family. All the things my boys (ages 16, 15, 13 and 7) loved to do are still offered and even more! They have improved on already great services by allowing you to pre-register for activities one week before you arrive. The activity offerings have expanded to an entire booklet long. In fact, there is such a variety of activities offered for every age and taste that they now give you a blank calendar sheet when you check in to write your schedule for your stay. Some things that make the retreat unique and special remain the same- no telephones are TV's in the rooms, however, keeping with modern times and necessities, wifi is available in the lodge. The staff is very helpful and accommodating, very eager to make your time with them special. The food is mediocre,but adequate. I would equate it to the quality of a good day at the dorm cafeteria. It too offers enough variety that there is no reason anyone should go hungry. Weather you like adventure (climbing, zip lines) outdoors (fishing,hiking, boating) sports, mini-golf, shuffleboard, horseback riding, trail rides, camp fires, movie watching, gym activities, crafting (very extensive offering in the activity center)working out or just relaxing with a good book you will find a variety of activities to enjoy!
