It is everything you expect for a cozy lunch spot smack on the lakefront. Lunch was exceptional and we returned for a 2nd day. I wish I had my skates with me to ck out the ice skating on the lake.

After skiing and in need of a bowl of soup and a libation, this was a good spot to grab a quick lunch. I bet it's nice in the summer too.

We stopped at the Cottage as we do every trip to Lake Placid to meet some friends and had another great time. We were ravaged after walking around the lake and not having too much for lunch, so we ordered the humus platter to hold us over until dinner. The wine selections are always good, and even though they were out of a couple that we selected, the server suggested another choice that was very good. While visiting with our friends, we were introduced to the owners of the Mirror Lake Inn who were very friendly and welcoming.

We visited twice more during our 4 day stay and are glad we did, including sitting at the outdoor fire and watching the stars. What a wonderful spot!

Stopped down after a walk around mirror lake for a drink at the cottage. Nice decor inside and had propane heaters to sit outside (it was full so we couldn't). The bar inside has a great selection and a nice view of the lake. If you want a bit quieter spot this is great because it's just off the main drag.

staff was great even when the place was packed! Loved the outdoor fire and TV during the Olympics - made for a magical space!
