About the place:

The Cottage restaurant is by the shore of Mirror Lake surrounded by majestic lake views of forests and hills.   The Cottage has wood-burning fireplaces inside and out, with heaters and comfortable seating on the outdoor decks.   In the winter the lake is frozen over and can be used for skating.  The restaurant has open views to the lake with a small bar that is raised above the dinner tables to give great views if you only want to have a beer!
