We had a lovely time at the Tally Ho. Very rustic and charming and a very pretty spot. We were in the Paradise unit and the only thing I would change would be to put a bigger fridge….at least bar sized. The staff was lovely to deal with and the food truck had great food. We will be back next year for sure.


Nice View – Mar 2020

The room had a nice view of the lake. They took all the precautions necessary with COVID-19 to prevent any spread.   The place was clean and well heated. It even had a nice wood fireplace we could use. I would stay here again.

Northern Excursion – Mar 2020

We would definitely stay here again. Lots of room to ride snowmobiles on the property as well as the lake. It’s a 2 min ride to the OFSC trails. Pet-friendly resort with zero issues. Unfortunately, the games room was closed up due to the COVID 19 virus, I’m sure that would ha e an added touch. See you next time!

Tally Ho is very Good – April 2020

We have stayed in Tally Ho Inn multiple times in all seasons. It has always been memorable. Very good location, excellent cottages, facilities including canoes in the summer. Always friendly staff. Hopefully, it stays that way. We’ll come again.

Covid 19 – May 5, 2020

Thankfully the Tally Ho was accepting reservations during the Covid-19 lockdown, we had to work in Dwight and needed to find accommodations that included a kitchen. The cottage we rented was perfect, brought our own supplies and got our work done with no delays.

“We had a good time and the precautions with the Covid-19 were done well, we felt safe in our cabin. Couldn’t get a good fire going in the fireplace but that could have been me?. Thanks! Erwin”

First time up north in the winter. Very quiet at the resort. No interaction with staff due to COVID-19. The resort was in good condition but would have liked to have fresh garbage bags daily. It would have been nice to have a place to pick up fresh towels and garbage bags daily for our cabin. Overall a very peaceful and relaxing getaway.

My partner, my dog and I had a lovely time in cabin 18!

We made use of our small kitchen and cooked up a storm. We loved the deepness and comfort of the bathtub. The cabin itself was a comfortable size and we had a parking spot right outside our door.

The view from our cabin window was lovely. I enjoyed walking my dog to the little fenced-in park and then around the little trail and sitting on the dock with her in the peaceful calm of the area. Though the gate to the park is easy to push and my dog figured that out quickly.

My partner and our dog had a remarkable and great stay at Tally Ho…as always. Thank you for being
The facility is working on being better every time we show up. The cabins have been improved and are extremely comfortable. We were close to the lake and one morning at around 7am we looked out our window and saw 3 wolves walking across the lake from the east. Have not seen such a site in the 50 years that I have been coming to the area. WOW!

It is quiet, comfortable, relaxing. It’s so nice to have your own cabin, not like a hotel.
