We visited at the time of sunset. The lake though small, offers good views. Expect a lot of people at the lake, and queues for boating. A lot of vendors at the lake selling fruits and other eatables. Don't expect tranquility.

There is parking across the street from Venna Lake, and free. If you have the resort ticket which you purchase before entering the Panchagani/ Mahabaleshwar, the tolls are covered
