Steve's cabin on Loon Lake was incredible. My husband and I spent our days hiking and canoeing and our evenings reading by the fire. Steve was a very attentive host. He thought of everything we could need and gave us great recommendations. The scenery was beyond beautiful. I could not recommend Tarry-A-While more!

Management response:

With guests like Cait and her husband any owner would be lucky to host them. They are the consummate guests who went beyond what was requested prior to departure. My only regret was that I did not have the opportunity to meet them personally. I hope I do in the future.

I had a terrific stay on Loon Lake -- a quiet spot in an amazingly beautiful location, with rustic & comfortable accommodations and lakefront access. A perfect spot to rest and recharge, and Steven is an accommodating and an excellent host. I hope to return to this beautiful and peaceful place!

Management response:

One could not ask for a nicer or better guest. Michael seemed more like an old friend or family member. His attention to detail in preparing to leave was greatly appreciated and more than could have been expected. Anyone would be lucky to have a guest like him!

My wife and I had a very relaxing time at Tarry-A-While celebrating her birthday. The cottage was beautiful and Loon Lake was pristine. Most of our time was spent on the lake in the canoe (we saw & heard the loons many times), cooking on the BBQ grill & relaxing on the screened-in porch. The cottage had everything needed (and...

Management response:

It's always a pleasure when guests have the vacation they were seeking. I knew they were coming to celebrate and I"m thrilled that being there met their expectations. I greatly appreciate their "vote of confidence" on the amenities they found at the cottage, their opinion of the lake and the performing loons. They left the place in great shape and...
