Barron County Wisconsin is where you can find Red Cedar Lake. In the center of Red Cedar Lake you can find the Stouts Island Lodge.
You can not drive out to the lodge since there are no bridges going to the island so you need to take a boat. You can take the boat that is provided by the Stouts Island Lodge or you can take your own.
In the 1900’s Frank Stout inherited money and bought the island that the lodge sits on. He built a large home complete with cabins for his children and quarters for his staff that he brought to the island with him. It became his summer home.
The home was well built unfortunately it was made with the bark still attached to the logs that the home was built with and bugs infested the wood.
So Stout built another home that is used as the Stouts Island Lodge today. It sits right on the water and gives you the feeling that you are on a floating boat. There is fishing on the island but you need a Wisconsin state fishing license to fish there.
Today you can go to Stouts Island Lodge and rent a room. Stay and enjoy the island by swimming at the beach, hiking on the trails, boating and dining. There is a campfire to enjoy and get acquainted with other guests staying at the lodge. Many birds make the island their home so it is a great place to go bird watching. There are also games you can play outdoors like croquet or bocca ball when the weather permits.
On days when the weather is less then desirable you can sit and read in the library, play billiards, put a puzzle together or just enjoy your unique room. Each room is tastefully decorated in individual decor so no two rooms are alike. There are no televisions at the Stouts Island Lodge but there is plenty to do. The rooms are named after the Stout children and there are fireplaces in the rooms.
A restaurant offers dining on the island and there is also a continental breakfast for the guests staying overnight. The rooms are comfortable and unique since they are on an island.
