The lodge and restaurant are a secluded haven for those looking for a place to relax, fish, hunt, and simply get away from city life.

“The food was great!”
Reviewed 30 November 2009

We stayed at the Lake House for a week with a group of friends while our sons played baseball at Dreams Park in Cooperstown. We had dinner and lunch several times that week and were never disappointed. It was always delicious, bread was homemade, the desserts were outstanding and nothing beats sitting on the deck with a cold drink at the end of a long day watching the kids play ball. The sunsets were gorgeous and it was the most relaxing part of our trip to Cooperstown. They also gave us a 10% discount on all food/drink because we were guests there. It was a win-win situation for us for lodging and dining. I would recommend it to anyone going to Cooperstown.

“An Unexpected Dining Gem ...”
Reviewed 6 July 2009

The Lakehouse is one of those gems you hope you stumble across when you are traveling that makes you glad you wandered in. Gene and Chris are the best kind of hosts and the service was wonderful. The home made soup was great and the prime rib was exactly the way I asked for it. The cheesecake was terrific.

My friends always kid me about being a picky eater, but I certainly wasn't picky at the Lakehouse.

“Great Stay, Great hospitality, Great Food, felt like being at home.”
Reviewed 22 June 2009

If you are looking for a bed and breakfast in upstate New York, this is it. Great place to stay if your son is playing at Cooperstown Dream Park. The Food is out of this world. Great hospitality, everyone there was super nice. We felt like we were at home during our stay. Highly recommend Bed and Breakfast.

“A gem on the lake”
Reviewed 29 May 2009

a few weeks ago while Debbie and I were taking one of our outings to Canadarago lake we decided to stop into the Lakehouse.It was early evening and the hostess guided us into the dining area that already had people enjoying their meals.Debbie had fish and I had a cheeseburger and we can reccomend both. They also have a strawberry shortcake that is to die for.The entire staff was intentive and friendly.We were also pleasantly surprised to find they also have a piano player that plays old classics as well as the Beatles.After dinner we walked out on the deck for coffee and watched the sun set over the lake and it was gorgeous. The ownere and staff make you feel as if you are a part of their family,I would reccomend this place to anyone looking for a place to get away and enjoy themselves.

“Lakehouse Restaurant-Great”
Reviewed 3 September 2005

Stopped at the Lakehouse Restaurant for lunch recently and was very happy with the experience. The restaurant/B&B is located a mile from route 20 on beautiful Canadarago Lake. Beautiful view of the lake from the dining room. Lunch was delicious. I had the roast beef dip sandwich and my sister had a tasty grilled chicken breast sandwich. Great home fries, and big portions. Dessert was a fresh peach shortcake with ice cream. Service fast and friendly. This place is worth the short drive off the main route.
