Legend has it that a pirate and notorious rogue by the name of Captain ‘Bully’ Hayes spent a bit of time in this area. Opening a hotel he cashed in off the thirsty gold miners and with his hoard of treasures he lived pretty well, even naming the lake after himself (no one was going to argue with a guy called ‘Bully’). So if you are after a bit of the bounty yourself then you have come to the right place. Make yourself at home. Enjoy the view and grab yourself a cold beer, a hot coffee or a delicious bite to eat.
