Had dinner with friends last night, first visit to the Lake House this year. This was the best meal we have had all year. From the friendly staff to the menu updates, all was great. This Chef knows what she is doing! Try the Salmon on the Cauliflower Risotto, the Lack of Ram, or the Pan Seared Scallops

We spent this past weekend at Lake House, amazing restored property in the quaint town of Richfield Springs on Canadarago Lake. Close to Cooperstown we were looking for a place to spend a getaway weekend with friends. The Lodge is incredible - Christine has done an amazing job of renovating this 1843 historic property. Fully equipped and comfortable - we...

Went for a weekend trip to Cooperstown. This hotel is just a short distance outside of the town, a few minutes from Main Street. It was lovely. Room was ready ahead of time, very Adirondack looking, extremely clean, great food, live jazz entertainment, would definitely stay there again.

However, the room was basic at best. The bathroom was terrible - I could hardly stand up in the shower because...

This place is absolutely perfect! It is close enough to Cooperstown and just far enough away to have plenty of space to enjoy a vacation however you want.
