  • Lake of the Mountsin is such an interesting spot. The lake does not allow any motorized boats. It's a mystery as where the water is feed from. A romantic spot for couples, great place to have wedding ...  more »

  • Beautiful place and would love to go again but the surrounding business' need to pull their finger out. Nothing around that accommodated pets so I had to wait outside whilst my spouse purchased a meal and ate it just so she could use the toilet and the public toilets were closed. It's a pity as the area was spectacular to look at.
  • A nice view when looking out through the fence but kinda booting up top. There is a nice boardwalk and sitting area to enjoy the view. Parking and picnic tables are available and there is a restaurant that is usually pretty full during the summer close by
  • Love this place every time I go here. Lovely people, great views, food and drinks. There are mainly two restaurants with patios here close to the lake. Go to the one that is closer to the lake. They are simply better with their drinks, food and service.
  • Breathtaking natural wonder with a fascinating story. A little out of the way but worth the detour, only wish there were more places to eat around there and that there was something open in the winter.
  • We return here yearly. Great place to visit in Prune Edward County with a beautiful lake above the water table, intriguing. Great food!
