OUTERS RESORT AND PONTOON RENTAL
A lot of what we know about Outers is word of mouth. It is said to be the first resort on the chain in 1908. We suspect the lodge was here before that and was probably used for logging in the late 1800s. After I puchaced the resort in 2002 I was lucky enough to get some information from the neighbor and another local gentleman before they passed. They could remember back to the 20s when the current lodge had a bar and grill and the upstairs was just bunk beds in an open room. They said the cars were parked everywhere on Fiday and Saturday nights. Cabin 5 was orginally an ice house and as you can see by the pictures, cabin 2 was moved from next to the lodge to it's current location by the lake. Cabins 6 and 7, up by the road, were added in the late 50s and early 60s. The trailer was on the hill into the 90s. I will be adding to this page occasionally as I get more pictures and information. I would like to thank Gary and Peggy Fredrickson (previous owners) for leaving me with most of these pictures. If you have any others, please take a picture and text them to me. Also, be sure to check out the musuem while you are in town, it is fantastic!
