Loon Lodge Inn & Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 10 Rangeley B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The Inn offers of a beautifully rustic ambiance from the wooden floors to the stone fireplace. The most accommodating staff I have ever had the pleasure to meet; they served with skill and an obviously honest charm. Our purpose there was for an elopement service in front of the fireplace. The manager saw to it that everything went smoothly for us and our 6 guests. After our Notary performed a "Rose" ceremony, we had a champagne toast and a semi private dinner. The dining was very enjoyable and delicious and again, the staff bent over backwards to see that our evening went perfect.We have already re-booked for the late spring and some of the best trout and salmon fishing in the state.
Our trip could not possibly have been better - thank you Beth and staff.

Room Tip: The Lakeside rooms are large, quite and have great views of the lake; worth the extra money.

The Lodge is a beautiful, historic lodge with a great dinner. The wait staff was very pleasant and attended to our needs. The manager of the lodge was both professional and pleasant. The views were spectacular. Great start to our visit!

Unfortunately, the walls are VERY thin and we enjoyed the sound of music, conversation and snoring through the night. The temperature of the room was 67 degrees when we awoke and the thermostat had a lock box cover. There was no hot water for a morning shower and although we let it run several minutes, we left without a shower to our next destination.

Great views and professional staff, but with the challenges we faced, it is doubtful we will visit again.

We loved the Loon Lodge from the minute we walked through the door. It is charming, decorated in a great cabin style, very warm and inviting. The view of the lake and sunsets on the lake are spectacular. We loved our room, The Nordic room and woke to a view out onto the beautiful lake.

Dinner was fantastic. Service was warm and friendly. All around an enchanting time. While breakfast is not served there, Mooseley Bagels down the street is wonderful for breakfast.

Room Tip: We liked the Nordic and would choose a room with a view of the lake. The bathroom for the Nordic is...

We were looking for a place to unwind and WOW did we find it! We left the premises for breakfast and a walk in town and spent the rest of the time relaxing, reading and enjoying the lodge! We were greeted by Beth and invited to get settled in & relax. We made reservations for dinner & spent the afternoon sitting by the lake & enjoying the view & more importantly, the peace! The food was superb to the point we asked to meet the head chef, Patrick to tell him how much we enjoyed the meals while there. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating to our requests! We spent the last night watching a great thunderstorm come in & sipping great wine from their collection. We will be back....

Loon Lodge & most of its iterations over the years exemplifies mountain cabin spectacular craft. This original log lodge is just over 100 years old and retains the magnificent interior log work - completely updated and rennovated but in keeping w/its original character. Beautiful lake views (what lake views in Rangeley are not spectacular?). This review focuses on the dining at Loon Lodge - both restaurant & pub. Excellent dinners - different but not fad-ish or exotic - competent./friendly staff. Decent wine list. Homemade lemon 'intermezzo' unexpected & awesome - always w/a sprig of fresh mint and fresh baked individual loaves of homemade bread. Very accommodating chef (who has returned following a short absence - and misstep for the venue) prepares favorite meals from past menus on our request. Highly recommended.

I had dinner twice last week in the pub with my husband. Consistent with the rest of the inn, the pub has a traditional mountain camp décor with real wood panels and pictures of snowmobiles. It is a popular spot for the locals on Wednesday-Saturday evenings. In the summer, they boat across the lake and dock at the inn. It is a beautiful location for weddings which get close attention from the event manager and the owners. The waitress seemed happy and was quick.

The menu in the pub includes pub entrees, dining room entrees, and dinner specials, and there is a full bar. The glasses of pinot noir were a quality well above the typical house wine. The portion sizes and quality were very good.

I loved the Loon Lodge Salad, spring mix lettuce, pecans, dried cranberries and a generous pile of deep-fried onion strips. The Mushroom Strudel had sautéed mushrooms with garlic, leeks and chevre cheese wrapped in crispy phyllo dough and served with a port demi glace. The browned phyllo piled on top was showy but didn’t contribute much although the filling was tasty. Baked Brie en Croute was standard, but I really liked the warm fruit sauce on it. My husband enjoyed and ate a huge serving of Saturday-special prime rib. The butternut squash ravioli were in a subtly sweet and seasoned cream sauce with lots of sautéed vegetables. I asked for some chicken with it, and got slices of tender chicken on top. We were too stuffed for dessert.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in late February along with several other couples. I've stayed in the Rangeley area many times in the past, but this was our first time at Loon Lodge & it definitely won't be our last.

The room we were in (room 1) is at ground level with a fantastic view of the lake; it was spacious, well decorated, and the bed was comfortable. There was no TV and no phone, which is fine with me, but there is wi-fi, and the connection was superb.

The common room is pleasant and welcoming, and quite "inn-like", with an enormous stone fireplace with real wood logs burning. There's a pub style bar off of the common area.

We had dinner twice while we were there, and both meals were superb. My wife and I both had duck the first night, along with a bottle of very nice wine; I had the prime rib the next night.

If you stay during the winter, I recommend the cross-country ski area. It was amazing, with miles of groomed trails.
