We had a view of Mirror Lake; The Lake House is located in a prime spot, right across from the lake and close to the shops and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and...

What a great find the Lake House is. A small and cozy hotel that is updated and beautiful. The rooms are decorated with a rustic feel but in a modern and beautiful way. Stunning views of Mirror Lake. When they say dog friendly, they really mean it. You will see dogs walking around with their owners sporting their Lake House...

Loved this place: cozy, terrific bar and lounge area, big rooms, and friendly and helpful staff (for hiking trails and restaurant suggestions).So centrally located, too. Every room, and the expansive lounge, looked out on Mirror Lake. Such a beautiful panorama! The place feels like an alpine ski lodge, with its big fireplace and bright red decor. And it even has...

It's a small hotel, but I consider this as an advantage. The rooms were spacious, with a balcony facing the beautiful Mirror Lake. The reception was warm and welcoming. We've received a map and recommendations regarding a hiking trail and places to see, which were found to be very useful. The lobby is large and informal, although the bar was...
