    Dining overlooking the Glenora Ferry . Great food enhances the wonderful view on Adolphus Reach
    Cousin Andy and his partner Louise visiting from England asked if they could take us out to our favourite spot for dinner. " The Miller House" at Lake of the Mountain ".....no hesitation. What a great spot and what great food and staff. A must see when in The County.

    A real gem in Prince Edward County. Excellent value and food.
    The food was wonderful, excellent service, you can eat outside or inside. There is a semi rustic dining room with a large fireplace that had burning logs in it. Prices were very reasonable. The outdoor patio across the road has a spectacular lake view. It was the best dining and atmosphere in PEC. My wife and I will be going back to stay at one of the cottages and spend 3 or 4 days.

    Beautiful views
    Beautiful views of the lake and the Bay of Quinte where one can see the Glenora Ferry crossing between Adolphustown and Glenora. The lake is believed to be a collapsed doline, a type of sinkhole. Well worth visiting.

Lake on the Mountain is a unique geological formation with a wonderful view of the channel and ferry to Adolphustown across from the lake. We've visited many times over the years always taking visitors new to our area for a short visit. You may still be able to fish and canoe, but you must bring your own equipment. Nice place to stop for a picnic or even better support the Miller House and with seasonal craft beers and wonderful charcuterie platters to share to go with a nice glass of wine, a favourite among small groups...my favourite stop on our tourist route! The restaurant at the Inn by the Lake on the Mountain is a favourite of our sons to take his lady for special dinners.

we had always known of this place without being there. We now visited in late October....relatively quiet, with the two local hostelries recently closed for the season. Very little parking( could be a REAL problem in summer!). Very lovely views over the main lake and the ferry at Glenora, as well as the surprisingly large lake on the hill itself. Well with a visit!

Stopped in for a drink, had the local lake on the mountain brewery pale ale which was tasty and refreshing. Also had a local Riesling and enjoyed the whitefish spread on bread. Service was great, staff all wore masks and used sanitized and one was nice enough to take a picture for us!

Pro tip, drive 2 mins down to the ferry and take the free 10 minute ferry across the water and back. Ferry you can drive, walk, or cycle on; and it leaves every half hour.

Lake on a Mountain has a great view but there really isn't anything there to do but the lookout. We drove all that way hoping to do some hiking because the Government website states that they have hiking there but the locals say that the land is all private. So disappointing!

We wanted to stop briefly and see the colours. You must pay and display now to park in the gravel lot. To add to the insanity the Inn is closed as is Miller house. Merely because Ontario Parks needs to gouge parking money, so you can't park on the side of the road. The county should be ashamed for this move!!

The garden is beautiful. We ate at the very bottom beside a quaint old fence under a willow tree beside the lake.
The service was prompt and friendly. Our waiter was mindful that the children would probably want to eat right away and kept an eye on their beautiful pink shirley temples.
The meal selection was not huge but well thought out and it was difficult to choose. The meals were perfectly prepared and presented and very delicious.

View of the lake on the mountain on one side, and of the Glenora ferry down below on the other side. The place is just lined up with quality restaurants and B&B's. They're also a few picnic tables of you're lucky to get hold of one!

Very disappointing. The bunkie we rented had several serious shortcomings. Aside from the postage stamp sized towels, the stairs to the loft were narrow and without a handrail, possibly dangerous for seniors and hard to believe that they were within building code. An outdoor light on the adjacent unit blazes through the bedroom window lighting the room like the 4th of July.

Worst part though is the nauseating stench from the bathroom which pervades the unit.

Kichen utilites were fine otherwise a one-star.
