The Destination
Smack in the middle of Red Cedar Lake in Birchwood, Wisconsin, sits plucky Stout's Island. Its 18 forested acres are divided into two: a main island and the long, narrow east island. Stout's Island Lodge spans most of the former, with cabins and lodges tucked into the woods around the small island. Needless to say, water sports are the name of the game when you're sitting in the middle of a gorgeous lake, but the mainland town of Birchwood offers a selection of dining and shopping, not to mention excellent golf.

The Digs
Stout's Island Lodge, surrounded by water and steeped in history, offers visitors an entire island of peace and quiet. Frank Stout—one of Chicago's ten wealthiest men at the turn of the 20th century—first built the main lodge in 1903 and rebuilt it in 1912, a legacy that earned it a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Elsewhere on the property, the Douglas and Wilson cabins each contain spacious rooms with white pine walls, hearthstone stoves, kitchenettes, and decks or patios.

Lovely as the rooms and scenery are, there's a lot more to love about the island lodge, starting with the food. Helmed by Chef Michael Beck, the Dining Room serves continental breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week and specializes in regional cuisine prepared with locally grown, seasonal ingredients. And when you've had your fill of food, outdoor activities like tennis, fishing, croquet, and kayaking await.

  • "This charming, old-school Adirondack-inspired resort still feels aspirational. Frankly, the place was built for inactivity. Lovingly so. Wooden docks jut into the lake and offer Adirondack chairs for reading."
