Restaurant
“Mini golf, ice cream, beer, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Otto's has pretty much whatever you need while staying on the lake. However, the best thing on the menu is the MAPLE CREEMEE! Seriously, don't leave Vermont until you've tried this soft serve ice cream sent from Heaven. I eat at least one a day when I'm in town. They are insanely good... especially if you like real maple syrup.”
