  • Phenomenal place to go for a meal if in the area or just travelling through. Have not had the luxury of staying the night here, but the food is absolutely delious with something for everyone. If you're dining on the patio you can't beat the view as you are right on the Lake of the Mountain. Have actually driven from Kingston on a few occassions just to eat here. Trust me when I tell you, you will not be disappointed!
  • A beautiful place, well worth the visit especially if you are catching the Glenora ferry on the way to or from Kingston. Also a lovely place to stop for lunch or dinner at the nearby cafe & pub.
