“The Best place for rest and relaxation!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We have stayed At Tall Timber every year for the last 3 or 4 years. We love the lake home "What A View" and oh what a view it has! Nothing like sitting on the deck looking out over Back Lake and watching the beautiful sunrise or sunset! Hearing the Loons was awesome too! We love going to the Rainbow Grille also. Great food and atmosphere! The staff is is friendly too! I can't wait to go back!

Carol,

Thank you again for staying with us last weekend. We're glad that you escaped for some rest and relaxation at Whataview. It certainly is a great part of Back Lake to be on, and the view is pretty special.

We look forward to having you stay with us again in the future.

Regards,

We stayed at this beautiful lakeside house on four occasions in the past. Three of the prior visits were weeklong stays. We loved it, all of it, including the magnificent call of the loons and the spectacular hatch of the aquatic Hex flies that stimulates the trout to bite big time. We enjoyed our home cooked meals, the ambiance of the lakeside setting truly enhances the dining experience. Making good use of the boat that comes with the rental of the house, I caught many fish that consisted of rainbow and brook trout as well as smallmouth bass. The boating attendant came each day to check the fuel and condition of the boat including pumping out the rainwater. The house had a new gas range and is now provided with WiFi. It was also nice to find all new screens on the sliders. Tom, our host for the week was especially helpful as we planned our activities and future reservations. The entire staff is special. It is a pleasure to do business with them.

Room Tip: The descriptions of each room, cabin, cottage or house are very helpful.

Thank you again for your comments and for coming back to stay with us this summer, and I'm glad that you enjoyed your time over at Bess. There's many ways to relax when you're here on our lake, the good June fishing and the excellent wildlife watching are just a couple of the ways to forget about the real world. Add a spectacular sunrise, and it's easy to see why Bess is a special getaway for our guests.

Thanks again John and we look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Great escape from the work world! Very clean and comfortable. Restaurant was excellent. Would certainly recommend this property to my friends. Fishing was so so. We caught mostly stock trout. We spent one day on the first conn. but no luck. Oh well.

Room Tip: Stayed at tamarack . Beautiful view and close to lodge and boats

Hi Rick -

Thank you for reviewing our lodge and restaurant and for your very kind comments on your recent stay with us. We're glad that you had a good time and were able to get some relaxation in - there's something about the view of the lake that will do that to you.

We have had some slow fishing to start the season up here, mostly as a result of our late departing winter, but the trout fishing should pick up when the weather gets better.

Have a great summer ahead and we hope to have you stay with us again very soon.

Regards,

Tom Caron

If you are looking for the PERFECT place to stay for a weekend getaway, look no further! Tall Timber Lodge offers AMAZING accommodations at REASONABLE prices, especially for avid snowmobilers!! With access to all the Pittsburgh trails literally right outside your door, you cannot find a BETTER spot to stay. Spend the day riding the vast trails and come back to your COZY cabin to RELAX in front of a roaring FIREPLACE. Cook dinner in your own KITCHEN or dine at the 5 STAR restaurant, Rainbow Grille & Tavern, which has a GREAT atmosphere and DELICIOUS meals!! We HIGHLY recommend Tall Timber Lodge and will be back next winter for sure!

Room Tip: We would highly recommend GRAMPS CABIN which offers TWO bedrooms, a kitchen, a JACUZZI, a FIREPLACE...

Booked a house for my husband's 50th birthday with 4 friends to go snowmobiling. Even though it stated on my reservation which house I booked, they put them in another house! Very upset they really did nothing to correct it except bring them a cot and give them a $75.00 gift certificate to their own restaurant, which is very expensive. No skin off their backs. And no response from them to a letter of complaint. More than lousy customer service. Will NEVER book here again.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us this winter and how we can improve the experiences of our future guests.

Unfortunately, we made a mistake with your reservation, and while we have safeguards to protect us from processing a reservation incorrectly, we didn't catch this problem in time. Since your stay, we have been more vigilant in checking new reservations when they are taken, and will continue this policy in the future. It is very important to us that guests stay in the unit that they requested when making their reservation, and this has been stressed to all of our front desk staff.

I'm also sorry that our efforts to correct the problem while your party was here were insufficient. I had the impression from your husband and his friends that the move to our other luxury house and the gift certificate to be applied to that night's dinner at our restaurant were satisfactory in dealing with our mistake. We always try to make our guests happy if we have a problem, and occasionally that might not be enough.

Thank you again for your comments and we hope to have your husband and his friends visit us again in the future.

Fantastic place!!! My favorite vacation place! I love this place!! The staff is so sweet and the food is amazing!!! We had some good friends go with us and had a blast! The 4 year d said " she will always remember this vacation and wants to return next week." Great snowmobiling and safe! Cutest cabins and a wonderful atmosphere and a magical feeling. We didn't want to leave! We plan on coming back to this special place. This is my 4th time there!!!!

Thank you again for visiting us recently and we're glad that you and your party had such a good time. The snowmobiling has been excellent lately, and when it's this good, it's pretty hard not to have a good time.

The family has spent many a time at Tall Timber Lodge to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and just to unwind from the the every day lives the family lives. From the oldest member of the family to the youngest, there are offerings to keep all the family involved that make for cherished family memories. No matter the season, we have engaged the family in daily trips or longer to Montreal, fishing lessons, boating, swimming, skiing at the local ski areas, snowshoeing, skating, hiking, around-the-table board games and favorite family card games.
The Rainbow Grille stands out with all the food fare offerings from seafood to elk and ostrich and more. The family's palette is tempted with many choices and we have never been disappointed with the service, friendly wait staff and especially the ambience that keeps the younger family members entertained. I am pleased to see that the present owners have added to the uniqueness of the setting since it was my great uncle and aunt along with their sons that built the original lodge and surrounding cabins.

Thank you for your kind review of our lodge. Tall Timber and this area have many activities to offer family members of all ages. In fact, your story about how your family enjoys this area, in different seasons, is very similar to how our own family grew to love this part of New Hampshire and all of the attractions that make it so special. in the end, we loved it so much that we had to live up here!

We hope to have you and your family return to stay with us again someday.

Thanks again,
