Among the oldest hotels in central New York, the Lake House provides access to the attractions of the Cooperstown area and to the natural beauty of the Leatherstocking Region’s countryside. Built in 1843, today the Lake House includes a restaurant on the shore of Lake Canadarago as well as separate hotel facilities inside the village limits of historic Richfield Springs.

Lunch with the Chef specials run each Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Come out for the Chef’s expert choice for the soup and sandwich of the day, the quiche of the day, or his new roast beef sandwich special, and he will wait on you himself. Chef Michael says that the way he serves customers at the Lake House is different from the way other restaurants operate, because the Lake House is small enough to have a personal atmosphere and is run by a friendly group of people.
