We have always had a good meal and good service. The owner is a very nice man who truly cares that his clientele has a pleasurable experience. A perfect spot to visit while enjoying this special place in the world that we call "our mountains".

This is mountain fare at it's finest. The rustic cabin overlooking the lake is just the beginning. Cliff and the staff offer a great selection which is always excellent. The roaring fire in the fireplace makes the atmosphere complete.
