Whether at Trout Lodge for a conference or for relaxation, this rustic center offers a respite from everyday life. Rooms have no TV or phone - bring your own alarm if you need one. All windows face the lake, and the moon's path over the water seems to come to everyone's front door. Buffet meals are more than adequate. Breakfasts...

We've always been with friends and kids when staying here and always plenty to do. This time it was just the hubby and myself. I was worried we wouldn't have anything to do at night. But we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves playing cards, coloring in those adult coloring books, listening to our favorite music in front of a warming fire. Unfortunately,...

When people look at all of our (amazing) pictures, they sometimes think that Trout Lodge is just for families with kids, but nothing could be further from the truth. In addition to activities that are geared more towards children, Trout Lodge has many activities for adults too - high adventure climb, trail ride, etc. Trout Lodge also hosts many adults-only...

The staff, atmosphere, environment... EVERYTHING was great! If you have a chance to visit the area, stop by the Trout Lodge, you won't be disappointed! Loved everything about it! Beautiful scenery all around and wonderful amenities.

What kind words - thank you! While our facility rocks it every season, fall is especially scenic with abundant fall colors surrounding the property on our 5200 wooded acres. It's the perfect backdrop for all of our fall themes too. We sincerely hope you will come visit us again soon - we'll be waiting for you.

I have been to Trout Lodge too many times to count. Most recently we took our 10 year old and 13 year old. We really enjoyed the new sailboats, paddle boards, and the kids enjoyed the new slide in the swimming area. We just love all the activities for our family. We play shuffleboard, mini golf, rode bikes, went fishing,...

Our family reunion (38 people) stayed 4 days and had a blast! Lots of outdoor activities for all ages, nice lake. Food was cafeteria but very good with good options. Everyone complimented on the good food. Only downside, no cell phone reception for several carriers, only AT & T.

We are truly glad you had such a good time and for the kind words about our facility. We try really hard to provide a quality experience for all of our guests.

I can't say enough about how much our family enjoyed having our reunion here. While initial costs seemed high to some family members, once there everyone realized just how much we got for those costs... boats, canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards to sign out after 9 am. Beach with a blown up trampoline in the water that the children loved....

We did this trip as a family get away for four couples and six children ranging from 18 months to 15 years. The place seemed suited to couples with teenagers more than small children or older adults. Rooms are just that, rooms with no television or telephone. Cell service didn't work at all for Sprint. The Hvac did work well....

While some of the activities we have here do include those for older children, we do offer activities for our younger crowd - swimming, hayride, pony ride, pontoon tour, arts & crafts and more. In regards to the "older adults", in addition to any family stay with activities, we also offer programs specifically designed for adults. We've actually had 60...
