I spent three nights at Stout's Lodge, and although I had a good time, I wasn't impressed. I had read a glowing article about the lodge in Minnesota Monthy, and it inspired me to plan a trip there. Although the lodge is very beautiful, it is not in the best condition. The bathroom in our room was really in bad shape, and the game room was falling apart. In fact, the whole boathouse looked like it was about to fall over into the water. The breakfast was stale muffins and cold cereal. The staff was indifferent. I would have stayed again if it was $80-100/night, but I paid $200/night and did not feel like it was worth that.

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
