Reflecting on Canadarago Lake, Richfield Springs, N.Y.

Have you ever been to a place that isn't the foundation of your travels, but resides prominently in your vacation memories? For us, The Lake House restaurant in Richfield Springs is one of those places.

Sitting at the outside deck and watching the sun go down over beautiful Canadarago Lake never fails to move us. Yes, the restaurant is terrific with its steak, chicken and seafood dishes, but it's the water views and overall incredible ambiance that Mother Nature provides that definitely keeps us coming back. The memories of the warm summer breeze, the mountain fresh air, the feel-good stillness of the early evening, and the lake reflections are enough to last into the dead cold of a northeast winter and right into the next summer just before returning to this amazing destination.

We feel so connected to the Cooperstown, Otsego Country area and the Lake House at Canadarago Lake surely serves as one of the anchors. It's well worth the 20 minute drive from Cooperstown!

Editor's note: The Lake House is located at 2521 County Highway 22, Richfield Springs, N.Y. Tel. (315) 858-2058. You can read more about the Lake House at our Cooperstown Restaurants page.
