Interesting view and very scenic. Enjoyed a long peaceful walk followed by a glass of wine. A perfect afternoon.

We have been to Miller House many times especially early evening, enjoying a drink watching the sunset. The service and food are excellent; however, what spoils it are the bees. The patio is surrounded by gardens that seem to attract bees making dining almost impossible. This is disappointing since we love going there. Until the owners address this issue (i.e.... More

The local pan-fried pickerel is a must for fish lovers. With a pint, you feel like you are on the coast.

Established in 1957, Lake on the Mountain Provincial Park is a recreational-class park spanning 103 hectares near Picton in Ontario overlooking the Bay of Quinte and the Glenora Ferry. Other than a viewing platform, a parking area, and an illustrated sign explaining the physical structure of the eponymous lake, there are no facilities within the park. The freshwater lake around...

Breathtaking view. Worth exploring. Follow county road 7 to county road 8 back to Picton. Lots to see and do.

We have seen the view during the day and it is spectacular especially in the fall when all the leaves have changed colour. Looking out at night is a different experience entirely but equally beautiful. Watching as the lights from the ferry pass through the darkness to the far shore is a sight to see.

Was staying at the Drake for the weekend. Was recommended we come here by a server when we went for breakfast. It was a beautiful drive and a great natural phenomenon to see. I'm a hobbyist photographer so I probably appreciated it a bit more than my wife. If we came here only for the lake we would have been... More

We stopped here on our recent trip to Picton. There was ample parking, and signage that described the natural occuring phenomenon. It's pretty neat that you've got a large lake basically right at your feet, but a short distance away, the Bay is beside you 200 feet below you. We were there on a Friday morning in October, so there... More

Good place to visit. If you read about how the lake is formed and the spiritual element about it, it is nice. You can't walk around it which is what I wanted to do. You can see it from the one angle off the road. Don't expect to be there very long so its something you'd stop and see for... More

A lovely peaceful spot to sit and have a picnic. There is a micro brewery and restaurant there also but we were there before they opened for the season. Nevermind, interesting history and legend about the lake.
