Food scene

This is our favorite restaurant. A tapas style restaurant, all dishes at Ember come out as they are ready and are made to order. The menu changes seasonally and the chef uses local produce, meats and cheeses. Monday nights is BYOB with no corkage fee for wines. We love dining on their gorgeous outdoor patio. They do take walk-ins but we recommend a reservation if you would prefer not to wait. Try the Ahi Tuna Nachos!

A fun local dive spot to grab some fast-type food. They have burgers, sandwiches, and garbage plates. The curly fries are a must-order! Shoreless Acres is the small local store just next to the grill and has penny candy for the kids and homemade donuts. Serious Food is just north of the boat launch on the East Side of the lake.

GioVanna's is great for pizza takeout. They have delicious woodfire pizzas and the best traditional pizza in town. They do deliver to the cottage. Note that food occasionally takes a long time, especially in the busy hours on Friday and Saturday nights. Our favorites are the Deluxe and Drag it tru da garden pizzas.

Things to Do

This a great place for a family outing. Minnehans is on the north end of the lake. If you travel north on West Lake Road all the way up the lake it will be on the north east corner of the first traffic light you come to. Minnehans features an 18-hole mini golf course, 4 different go-karts, a discovery zone, driving range, outdoor laser tag, and arcade. They have delicious ice cream and an extensive menu. Worth the trip for some off-lake activities!

Deer Run Winery has live music on Thursday nights starting at 6pm. The concerts are free and the winery has wine slushies and bottles available for purchase. You cannot bring any outside alcohol but you can bring your own food. They do have local food trucks attend if you would prefer to purchase food there. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy! It does get crowded. We prefer to sit a little ways back at the concert so it's not too loud and we don't get stuck in the crowd.

Vitale Park has a Sunday night concert series in the summer. You can go by boat or by car. Vitale Park is all the way on the North end of the lake so it would take a little while to get there by boat but once there, drop anchor and enjoy the music from the water. Concerts begin at 6pm and will only run through 8/25.

Stony Brook has always been a favorite of ours. The park has a great hike up the gorge with lots of places to get your feet in the water and a ton of waterfalls. The bottom of the hike has a natural, brook fed swimming pool. There are also picnic areas and pavilions here for lunching.
