My wife and I had a quiet dinner overlooking the lake. Great service, nice atmosphere and the food was very good. I was surprised that I had to "confirm my reservation" by phone, when I made it via the internet just the day before. I am not that young, but it seemed to me to be an anarchistic way of... More

We ordered omelets made to perfection which were accompanied by delicious home fries that were crispy and yet soft inside and warm bread with freshly made fruit jam. And our server Jeanne made us feel welcome and happy. We lingered over the delicious coffee as we gazed at beautiful Mirror Lake. April is a transition season for this area and... More

I've eaten at other fine dining establishments in town (Artisan's, Kanu) and find that none come close to the quality of food served at the View. Fresh, local ingredients, and nothing superfluous; everything done with a purpose. Starting with bread baked on the premises and great butter with a sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt. I had what I can say... More

The food here is consistently wonderful, service can't be beat. It's a great place to go to celebrate special occasions, or just for fun. It's pretentious and overdone but that's the fun of it.

My husband and I stayed at Mirror Lake Inn Feb 9-12, 2014. We had the "breakfast plan" (which we highly recommend if you are staying as a guest at the resort). Each morning we had breakfast at The View and could not have been happier. The breakfast plan includes a glass of fresh juice or fruit plate. I had the... More

We have been coming here for four years now. The food gets better every year. Crab cake appetizer is fabulous. The weekend breakfast buffet is terrific. If you are lucky like us, Pierre will be your waiter at dinner

My husband and I spent 2 days at the inn, and thoroughly enjoyed 2 delicious breakfasts and 2 outstanding dinners. I had the best omelet ever and my husband had the famous flapjacks. Our dinners were equally delicious. The staff is attentive and friendly. We would highly recommend The View.
