“lake in a scenis area, but the boat house not so.”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

It is a beautiful scenic lake with tall trees standing guard at one side. The approach road and the and the boat house and the shed for seating the tourists , are not what one expects of a lake in such a popular hill station. Even the boats were not many, and when there is a crowd, waiting time is too much. but the boat ride is pleasant in the cool waters of the venna.

“One shot...”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

This was a very touristy thing to do.... Boating in a hill station. We took a boat to a temple on the far end, got off and took some pics. Was a good ride, most because of company and kids.

“lake - OK! Lake area - A good Visit!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

The venna lake allows the option of pedal boats or row boats with a rower.The lake sides or piers being poorly facilitated and cjharges being very steep from 350 to 450 per hour of pedalling or 30 mins of rowing, you seem to expect more. The area around the lake, like many places in mahabaleshwar, has got the carnival set up going for it. Lots of fun fair games, a mini amusement park for kids and a few eating joints. all in all a good evening to spend.
