    Our wedding at Stout's Island Lodge was absolutely perfect! The island itself is already a very special and beautiful place, so to add a wedding to that mix is really special. Our guests loved the activities and grounds of the island, and enjoyed the lodge and the wonderful rooms. From the ferry staff to the general manager and owner, everyone worked tirelessly to make sure our wedding was perfect. Everything we brought with us was taken care of and whisked from the ferry right to our rooms or event space. They even packed it all up for us and put it back on the ferry at the end of the weekend. There are so many things that the staff did for us during this weekend, but one thing that really stands out in my mind is right before our band started to play, there was a huge rainstorm. We had the sides of the tent off until this point because it was a gorgeous day. All of the staff including the general manager and owner were running around soaking wet, putting the sides up as fast they could, all the while smiling and working so hard just to keep us all dry and the party going. After planning with Stephanie and Emily all year and then to have such amazing support from them and the rest of the staff, I really felt like everyone who worked there was like family by the end of the weekend. I could go on and on about Stout's and what a perfect place it is to bring everyone that you love together for a wedding. We've heard from so many of our guests that it was the most fun and special wedding that they've ever been a part of. I wish we could do it all over again, and we are so excited to go back for many anniversaries to come!

    From the first phone call until the last ride back to the parking lot, we were beyond happy with our choice of getting married at Stout's. Emily not only exceeded our expectations but took the time to go the extra mile to ensure that we had solid communication and attention (even during a transition time for Christine--thanks for your help in the beginning). The island is beautiful and offers something for everyone--kayaking, canoeing, swimming, bags, bonfires, cozy cabins, exceptional food, and fireplaces galore. We were able to host an intimate ceremony overlooking the lake and a reception that matched our personalities. The staff at our wedding was very friendly. Kelly the gardener wanted to ensure that we had an extra special touch by providing us fresh flowers at our door. Chef did a fantastic job catering to our individual desires along with a guest with food allergies. The food was enjoyed by all our guests (seriously consider the mac 'n cheese)! There are a lot of reasons why we love this place, and we look forward to our next trip! If you are considering a unique experience for your guests, look no further. A boat ride to a private island, plenty of activities to enjoy, beautiful scenery, and minimal decorations needed set the stage for the perfect day. Thank you, Emily! Thank you to Chef! Thank you to all who helped make our experience one that we will never forget!
