I just can t say enough good things about this place. We were visiting the hall of fame and this is our 2nd visit in 3 months to the Lake House. Everything was perfect. I had the filet chef s special and my husband the small plate of lamb. The extensive wine list and awesome bread and perfect service. Just love this restaurant !

Debbie and I heard that the Lakehouse would be open on Easter for a buffet so we took the grand kids and drove up. We were not disappointed the food was excellent they have a fantastic crew in the kitchen. We walked down and they are using a rather large sailboat called the Jack Tar turning it into a bar called the Jack Tar shipwreck bar. When we go back to the lake for the summer we are going to have to go see the new things they are doing at the Lake House.

When my son's baseball team was honored with a opportunity to play a game on the famous Doubleday Field in Cooperstown, NY, of course the family & I were going up to spend a week in this cozy little BaseBall Town USA. I searched the Internet of various motels, hotels and B&B in the area. I sure was glad when I discovered the Lake House Hotel. A wonderful, family run hotel just outside of Cooperstown. The rooms are comfortable, spotless, and come with many extras (i.e. refrigerator, microwave, great coffee) The couple who run the hotel are incredibly friendly and helpful. Considering the low price, it's a tremendous value. Ditch the big chains and stay here.

Our wedding party and other friends our age stayed at this hotel for the entire weekend of our Cooperstown wedding. Though the Lake House is located about 15 minutes north of the village proper, the property is nestled next to a lovely lake and within a 5 minute-drive of a grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, etc. in Richfield Springs.

With bedrooms off of the two central common rooms was the perfect layout for our group preparations and celebrations. The decor was charming, woodsy, and cozy- perfect for the style of our wedding and fitting for the area. Chris, the owner and manager, allowed us to bring our two dogs as well! Having the freedom to use the entirety of the hotel for our group was the epitome of relaxing. We did not have to worry about bothering other guests or running into people we didn't know at the height of our wedding stress.

Along with the cozy accommodations, Chris made us all a delicious and hot breakfast every morning. She was excellent to work with from our first visit in May, through the booking process, and through the most perfect wedding weekend ever!

We highly recommend this hotel for large groups. It was clean, welcoming, and the staff is wonderful. Though we were too busy to enjoy the lake, I have no doubts that the activities available to guests are fantastic as well. The price is hard to beat!

The food we had was rotton, old mushy and smelled bad and cost too much. Garbage. Had a coupon and felt robbed.

You have a major what in writing? The correct terminology would be: "I have a degree in writing" or "I majored in writing", but if either of these statements applied to you, you would have known that.

Never been in the place, so I have no clue what it's like, but I stand by what I said.
