Stayed here in one of the 4 motel rooms. Room was quaint and comfortable with kitchenette (equipped). Very peaceful family resort with lots of lake access. Great customer service! Pleasant cabins of all sizes, camp grounds, water craft available. So relaxing that we booked up to go back for a week.

We just got back from TTL again and had a perfect vacation! We stayed in The Evergreen Cabin for the first time and it was amazing! The fishing was outstanding. The service was impeccable. Perfection!

Our cabin overlooked the lake with a private dock and fire pit area. It also had a 2nd floor wrap around deck - all of these amenities provided various options of where we could enjoy the view. Inside, the cabin was clean and furnished with log furniture throughout. We especially enjoyed the fire place in the cool mornings (a welcome... More

Great location, close enough to town but far enough away. Enjoyed sitting in the adirondack chairs at the end of every day looking out at the lake and listening to the loons. We stayed in Red Pine and enjoyed the location-neighbors only on 1 side. Although some of the cabins seemed close to one another, it was very quiet. The... More

My husband and I spent a few nights here last summer, and we were so impressed with the outgoing and friendly service of our hosts and the staff. Our little cabin had its own dock, and we rented a canoe from the outfitters for the time we were there. Delivered to our dock, it was very convenient not to tie... More

We have been coming here on and off for over 40 years. It continues to impress me more yearly. The Forsberg's (owners) continue to improve the resort for a true rustic experience. We will be back again!!!

I and my thirteen year old grandson just returned from a four night, three day fishing trip stay at Timber Trail Lodge. The cabin was warm, clean, well equipped and the two twin beds were comfie. Our guide, Bob Derr, took us fishing for two of the three days on the boundary waters--specifically Bass Wood Lake. In order to get... More

We stayed in the Diamond Willow cabin at Timber Trail Lodge on a recent snowmobile trip. It is located on a beautiful setting on the shore of Farm Lake. It was clean and well maintained. It has easy access to the Tomahawk snowmobile trail that had been freshly groomed and was in excellent condition. I would definitely recommend the Timber... More

We stayed at the Diamond Willow cabin over Christmas and it was fantastic! It was so peaceful and lovely. We had snow the day before and it was postcard perfect. When I called for the reservation the lady I talked to was so informative and very helpful. We loved our winter getaway. Thanks for everything!

We stayed in the Ranger cabin for a week. It was, as stated, rustic. It was also spotlessly clean. How they do that, I will never know. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The trees could use a little trimming for a better view otherwise, no complaints and enjoyed our stay very much.
