Welcome to the "magical" place
known as Tarry - A - While. Created from a dream of a man named Forrest
Abbott in the late 1890's. Located in the
Western Maine Lakes Region between the mountains and Maine coast, Tarry
- A - While offers you spectacular views, boating on an uncrowded lake
and unforgettable sunsets.
You can spend your day by the lake, enjoying a swim at our sandy beach.
Here you will find canoes, kayaks, row boats and a sail boat free for your
taking. If you are activity inclined, enjoy a game of tennis, badminton,
shuffleboard, ping pong or croquet. A public eighteen hole golf course is
a short walk away. Many wonderful activities are within an hour drive.
Our five housekeeping cottages reflect true Maine hospitality: clean
and comfortable. Or, if you prefer to be pampered, stay in one of the
rooms in the 1897 Inn, where a continental breakfast is served daily.
