We'd been meaning to try the Lake House for some time, having seen the ads on TV. I'd been there years ago and wanted to give it another try and see what the (new) Executive Chef had to offer. We were there on a beautiful Sunday afternoon after Labor Day, so the grounds were being prepared for winter -- pavilion... More

When we moved our lodging to the Lake House we ate at the restaurant and could not believe they had my husbands favorite, frog legs. This was the first time in a while since they are so hard to find. Food was great and we sat outside on the deck where they were having a concert on the stage. All... More

We were in Cooperstown mostly and ate some great meals, but the few times we ate here were very good. The dishes were more than comparable to any of the big restaurants in Cooperstown.

"Food was excellent, they are trying to be a little upscale with the food and service." The best dining area is outside and they have a spectacular view of Lake Canadarago. One of the best meals we have had in Cooperstown so far. Awesome view, great service and steaks were delicious. I highly recommend the banana bread for dessert!

We've been wanting to try The Lake House after seeing the TV ads with Chef Michael Gregory. We had a very nice meal with a great view of the lake, and opted to sit inside since it was a cool evening, but would sometime like to try it when we can sit outside. My husband had the salmon and I... More

We were referred here by the hotel manager at the baseball hotel who said the steaks and seafood are the best in the Cooperstown area. We were reluctant at first but decided to try it out.
