Lake on the mountain is a beautiful spot for a picnic, if you can find a quiet spot. It can be busy on the weekends. Beautiful views of Lake Ontario as well as the lake on the mountain.

The Lake on the Mountain is a geological wonder and a beautiful place to visit. When we were there, the wind was whipping up some delightful waves for us. Don't miss seeing it!

Fantastic location. Beautiful views. While it is small it offers good service, excellent food, wine and their owned brewed beer.
