This resort has beautiful grounds. We went in the fall and the colors were fantastic. We stayed in the main lodge with another couple. We were so happy to be going to the island for the weekend. The ferry ride over was on time and the driver was very pleasant and helpful with our bags and getting our luggage to...

The best of everything. Rustic cabin with all the amenities, view of the lake, lots of comfortable chairs to sit around the wood burning fireplace. We stayed in Harry 2. My husband and I just returned from our weekend away at Stout's and we could not be more refreshed. Everything is taken care of, you just show up.

We spent 2 weeknights on Stout Island. My 3 young boys and I met up with 2 of my sisters and their families there. We all stayed in the Gardeners' house. The room we were in (#3) was nice and had plenty of space for the 8 cousins to play board games on the floor. The toilet wasn't working properly....

Dear Monica A., Thank you for your feedback! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. To your point, the plumbing is very old, but it does work and I apologize there were any issues during your visit. We did a major overhaul to the plumbing this year so that should have fixed any underlying issues. I wish there was...

I must start off by saying that the Island has a very comfortable feeling and the staff was great and personable. It has a beautiful lodge and grounds and one can imagine how difficult it was to build. I had no idea how much hill walking we would have to do and it certainly took a toll on us. When...
