This place is awesome. Instead of typing out paragraphs, I thought I'd highlight just a few items that make this place great! 1. They have a super friendly chocolate lab that hangs out by the door. His name is Choco. He's great with kids and strangers alike! 2. The BREAKFAST. Ohhhhhh my word. This trip would have been worth it...

Needing a break in the busy hustle and bustle of work and life? The Outing Lodge was a great way to reset and refresh. We stayed in the Robert Frost room which was surprisingly large and charming. The wine and cheese tasting was a wonderful way to start the mini-vacation. A healthy walk in the fresh air in the morning...

Our stay at the Outing Lodge Bread and Breakfast was amazing. We found the Lodge to be spacious and interestingly decorated. Upon checking in we received an interesting tour of the grounds with an oral history of the Lodge after which we enjoyed a couple glasses of wine and cheese. Our room was well decorated, warm, and spacious. We rested...

I love staying at the Outing Lodge, where you feel as if you have retreated to a woodland oasis and back in time...Stay during an off-day, like a Sunday night, when it's less crowded, and you'll even feel as though you have a mansion to yourself. Wonderful breakfast too, and gardens, and nature walking... beautiful. Dog friendly.

I found the Outing Lodge like a charming, sophisticated, older woman. It has a quiet sophistication that only age can achieve. My granddaughter and her new husband were recently married there. The house and grounds are lovely and it made their special day perfect.

We have stayed at the Outing Lodge several times and have never been disappointed. My husband and I absolutely love this beautiful, charming and quaint Inn. The entire staff is warm and welcoming. Carlotta is an exceptional hostess. The second day with no power due to a storm, Carlotta and her staff made an excellent tasty breakfast. Thank you again...

The owners were so friendly and welcoming. Silly to mention since it would be foolish for them to be grumpy and hostile. However, they were so genuine and available to visit and share their interesting story, that I was charmed. The accommodations have modern conveniences but the whole place feels historic. I felt like I was staying in a well-kept...

Outing Lodge is in a forested area and quite isolated. I can imagine in its heyday that it was a very special place. I fear that deferred maintenance and lack of investment will be its undoing. From the plumbing to the rain gutters, it all needs attention. Disappointed that they don't even make the effort to remove dandelions from the...

Loved the wine/cheese reception and tour. Mark very helpful and inviting. Picasso room was large and air conditioning worked well. The bedding was new and very nice. The bed itself needs to be replaced. Way too soft and sunken in. Take down all the instruction signs - not very welcoming to be told "do not sit" on the bench right...

What a great place to stay. We chose this place for our 11-year anniversary and we couldn't have been happier. It's so cute and the tour was a lot of fun. Off the beaten path so you don't hear cars all night long. So nice and relaxing

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
19th Century History Preserved at the Outing Lodge European style 19th century country home, surrounded by lawns and gardens with 300 acres of wooded park land ~ a place where people would go to get away from modern city life. Pine Point was founded in 1858 as Minnesota's second "poor farm," a home for the chronically indigent or those temporarily down on their luck. Stillwater was a wealthy community in 1850, the territorial capital. In this abundant atmosphere, a desire to help the less fortunate culminated in the construction of this poor farm. The prize-winning dairy farm became both a home and a workplace to thousands of needy for almost 100 years. When the farm was closed in 1957, the land was planted in pine trees, now Pine Point Park. The house went on for 20 years as a Rest Home. In the 1980s, to save it from proposed demolition, Lee Gohlike began its renovation. He gutted its interiors with a reverence for its historic past: wide-planked wooden floors cut from old pine beams provide a perfect backdrop to the many elegant antique furnishings, numerous candelabra and massive fireplaces. Featured in Midwest Traveler, Star Tribune and other local & national publications, this beautiful Georgian home is a destination for exclusive retreats & events. Guests enjoy cross-country skiing, horseback and biking trails connecting to the Metro system. Theme dinner calendar of events. ... more   less
