My husband and I just returned from a 3 night trip to Tan Tar A. The rooms were just average no more than that. We had reservations for the main lodge but ended up in BLdg D. Steps everywhere. To get anywhere from our room was over 30 steps down to the main floor, no elevator. Parking was a nightmare... More

We had a wonderful time at TanTarA. Our room (in the main building) was clean/spacious with a nice balcony.Everyone was very friendly, however,it's a very busy place, so don't expect any "quiet" time!

I've been coming here for years since interning here 8 years ago. We enjoy staying in the estates away from the buzz of the resort. The updated lobby and rooms look great; the update was much needed. The waits for the shuttle were longer than normal. Though nice, the new driver made us nauseous with her driving. Loved the Arrowhead... More

Recently had sons wedding there.Had guests in over 20 rooms for the weekend. EVERYONE left complaining about shuttle service people being rude. Guests were twice cursed at. Unacceptable customer service especially for the amount of money spent by us for the wedding and our guests on rooms. We have been going to the lake for over 25 years and always... More

Made reservations through an internet discount site and got an excellent rate. Was worried we would be stuck in a horrible room but it was just the opposite. We had a lake front double king room with a balcony. Pools are wonderful. Kiddos loved the horseback riding. Will definitely go again!

We have been staying here every summer for the past five years. We had always enjoyed it. This time I was disgusted by the rude employees not only did I hear them making fun of the guests but if we had any problems we were told it wasnt their issue. For instance, the pool attendants. I noticed on the arrowhead... More

I'm confused by the bad reviews on this resort... we had an amazing family vacation. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed at what they call The Rstates and loved our room, the pools, the atmosphere... the rooms were large and clean and looked newly painted etc. We had a porch and a lakeview. I kept reading reviews telling... More

The new lobby and lounge area is wonderful. You must stop in and say hi to Sampson at the lounge. He is a 35 year employee and you'll know why when you meet him. The two full service restaurants serve some of the best food in the area. As soon as all of the resort is remodeled it will be... More
