The Cottage is a wonderful pub that sits on stilts extending over Mirror Lake. The views are incredible and you can enjoy a drink or a lite meal in front of a warm fire. The snacks, nachos and sandwiches are tasty and filling but the true attraction of the Cottage is the cozy atmosphere. Great place to have a late afternoon drink.

If you like sandwiches you will love this place. While eating you have a great view of Mirror Lake. I highly recommend this establishment for lunch. They make great drinks also.

If you need somewhere to grab an afternoon or pre-dinner cocktail, this is the place. A short walk from the mainstreet, beautiful lake and mountain view, cozy patio and tidy interior. Talented mixologists/bartenders and a good wine selection.

What a nice change of pace. It was a simple meal in a place full of charm. we ordered sandwiches, watched a game, and enjoyed the small crowd.

Dropped by after a day skiing on Jan 7, 2013. Great location and view. Nice wood burning fireplace. The menu is not extensive but if you want a light dinner you can't go wrong. The decor is cute and the bar was busy even in the late afternoon. It's a 100 yards off the Main Street and you feel like you've discovered a secret when you find it. The crowd was a little older so if you're looking for the kids they won't be here. We split the nachos with chili and the spinach salad. The nachos were a liitle light on the chili but were still tasty. The potions are large so we ended up taking leftovers to the hotel. The staff, without asking, we're nice enough to include cutlery. Have a nice drink and enjoy this quaint pub.
