"Sometimes you just need to get away," says a quote on Loon Lodge’s website. And this is certainly the place to do that.
Ariale’s friendly greeting when we arrived got us off to a great start, and as she gave us a tour, I was transported back in time. Enormous round logs are support beams and brace the ceiling in the Great Room, anchored by a huge fireplace with a stone chimney. The "Old Hickory" couches and chairs have log frames with deep cushioned seats. George and I spent a lot of time in this room that emits a feeling of an era gone by, rustic but at the same time elegant. Large windows open to a deck that affords a stunning view of Rangeley Lake.
