Mirror Lake State Park
Mirror Lake State Park covers over 2000 acres and is just three miles south-west of Wisconsin Dells. Sandstone bluffs surround half of the lake, which offers excellent fishing, swimming, and canoeing, kayaking, and birdwatching opportunities. You’ll also enjoy wooded campsites, picnic areas, a boat landing, and miles of biking, hiking and cross-country ski trails.

Seth Peterson Cottage
This tiny house, with just 880 square feet of living space, brings together many of the qualities that mark Frank Lloyd Wright as one of the world’s foremost architects. The Cottage is balanced just on the edge of the steep wooded hill that plunges down to Mirror Lake. Framed by strong terrace buttresses of local Wisconsin sandstone, and with walls of the same stone, the building possesses a monumentality that is surprising to find in such a small structure The massive chimney and walls of the building, rising two stories over the bathroom and kitchen, are strong vertical elements that anchor and offset the energetic wedge of the roof. The great flying roof, seeming to hang in space without support, frames the principal views to the west and south. The flagstones used to pave the outside terrace continue inside the building as the cottage floor, manifesting Wright’s philosophy of making little distinction between the outside and inside worlds in which we live.
Lake Management District
The Mirror Lake Management District is a local government created in 2006 with taxing authority that raises funds and administers grants that protect, rehabilitate and enhance Mirror Lake.
