Description: Lake House Restaurant and Lodge was built in 1843 and rests on the shores of Canadarago. The lodge and restaurant are a secluded haven for those looking for a place to relax, fish, hunt, and simply get away from city life. Lake House Restaurant and Lodge is host to our ever popular sulfur baths, which is great for your skin and has even proven to heal skin disorders and help relieve arthritis. There is plenty to do out here Richfield Springs, including a short drive to the Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, or rent out a jet ski and explore Canadarago Lake. We also boast large out seating area, which is perfect for outdoor wedding or concerts. Hurry out to Lake House Restaurant and Lodge and stay awhile.

The first thing we do each morning as a service team is check out and review our reviews. What a way for us to start the day....that is by reading what you wrote about what we offer the public and the manner in which we serve....our greatest asset....our clientele. Please revisit us time and time again and feel free to introduce yourself so that we may thank you in person. We have passed this wonderful review to Ruth who was elated with your comments.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Very friendly and very good food. Price is a little on the high side. We had a coupon so it wasn't that bad.

“Happy Thanksgiving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

With the weather in the tri state area being extremely nice we decided to pick up the grand kids and go up to the lake for thanksgiving.We were surprised to find the Lakehouse having a thanksgiving buffet,so we had dinner there and as always found the owners to be more than cordial.We saw a large stage set up where there will be outside shows next year,we also met their chef John and head waiter Rob and found them to be friendly as well as knowledgeable.
What a great way to end a fantastic autumn.

“The menu was deceiving.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

On Saturday, September 15, 2012 around 7 pm my husband and I "dined" at the Lake House Restaurant based on recommendations from the KOA campground nearby...they showed us a menu which included lamb shanks and other Food Network worthy dishes. The building was inviting and the atmosphere amusingly eclectic. A Trip Advisor five star review was even hanging up.... our hopes were high. Maybe 6 other tables had patrons when we arrived and about that same amount of tables had dishes that had yet to be cleared....the place was not busy and appeared to have three waitresses who did not compliment each other at all. We were shown to our table and 10 minutes later we got a waitress...we ordered appetizers....waitress came back they did not have our choice..another choice made..again..same thing...finally settle on shrimp which when served obviously had been sitting out for awhile. Menu did not have lamb shanks and was your basic menu most places have. When asked we were told the menu we saw was the old menu and it changed mid season because the chief had changed mid season. Ordered dinner...again came back and was told they were out...asked what type of vegetable was served..told something mixed. Obviously we did not stay for dessert. Price was high for amount and quality of food (i went with steak...who knew it could be that bad) and service provided (our waitress disappeared for 20 minutes once and that was after we ordered our drinks). I strongly recommend Restaurant Impossible for this place. - Joanne C

Thanks for your comments and observations. They are appreciated. It is a great old building and we do like a mix of things and enjoy collecting lots of things. It is nice to own a big building and to be able to enjoy them. We appreciate your business. Thanks!
