As a builder/developer I own several premium lodges right on Otsego Lake including our 5 bedroom listed below; The Treehouse. We would be happy to provide you with further details and pictures of this home as well as our 3 and 4 bedroom lodges at

All of our homes have unique features... several have 40 foot tall trees inside of them, one has a private elevator, lake front fire pits, a heated swimming pool. And all of them have several things in common;
exceptionally well appointed, elegantly-rustic comfy interiors, spectacular water front or expansive private locations with sensational views. And all of them include canoes and/or kayaks as well as docks for your own boat or a rental boat.

About William Miller
Liz and I have been welcoming guests to our Cooperstown vacation retreats for more than a decade. We believe a well maintained and spotlessly clean home is just a small component of a great vacation experience. Too often, consumers experience the result of lack of focus on the part of service providers...telephone calls go to voicemail... emails go unanswered...questions are unanswered and problems go unresolved. Our philosophy; Great Vacation Experiences Begin And End With Great Customer Service. For this reason, we have chosen to limit the number of homes we manage to ensure our ability to provide the best customer service possible. Our goal is to leverage a lifetime of intimate knowledge of the Cooperstown area to enable our guests to experience all that Cooperstown has to offer... we are "locals" providing visitors with inside information to enhance their time in our special region. We are standing by, ready to help you. Call us... or email us Safe travels, Liz and Bill
William Miller purchased this Lodge in 2000
Why William Miller chose Town of Middlefield
Otsego Lake is 9 miles long and very much under-utilized. Having grown up on the lake, when the opportunity came along to purchase vacant land we jumped at the chance because so much of the shoreline is forever protected there simply are very few parcels available.
What makes this Lodge unique
Regardless of the season, The Treehouse provides for a Great Escape. During the winter when the snow blankets the land and the ice on the lake is 18' think, the fireplace adds to a warm and comfy environment. Summer days are spent canoeing, sailing, fishing or power boating on a lake that at times is so uncrowded it feels like your own! And in the fall, the thickly wooded hillsides surrounding the lake turn bright with color and is a great time to hike the trails.

Words cannot describe how amazing the Treehouse is. Every corner of the home speaks quality and class. If you are looking for an elegant, quiet get-away, this is the place for you. We had a small family gathering at the Treehouse to celebrate our parent's 50th wedding anniversary and everyone was impressed. Bill, the property owner, keeps his guests in mind from the fresh linens to the fully supplied kitchen. The family was so impressed we are thinking of making this an annual reunion. Thank you, Bill, for your attention to detail and for making this magical home available!
Liz and I truly appreciate our guests taking the time to comment on their experiences at our homes. We are so happy to have played a small part in helping your parents celebrate such a big occasion! Congratulations to Mom and Dad!!
We hope to welcome your family back next year for their 51st!!
best getaway experience - five star in all ways
absolutely delightful in every way...the property and lake of course were stunning; the house beautifully appointed; the care and attention from Bill was perfect...nothing to change, all wonderful...would love to return again and gain
Beautiful one of a kind place!
I rented this home for a large group of friends! The house far surpassed my expectations! We went during the winter for a getaway and the look of the place cover in snow was magical. All the floors were heated which was great for the winter. There is a huge deck overlooking the lake. The little things went a long way. There was already a fire build in the fireplace before we arrived. The kitchen is stocked with all the tools you could possibly need! The beds were comfortable and clean. Huge kitchen and upstairs living room for hanging out. Huge screen TV for movies downstairs. We also had a large enough group that we rented both the treehouse and birds nest, which was great for my friends who are late sleepers.
Kate, Thank you for taking the time to provide your input. Many people come to Cooperstown during the peak summer season, and undoubtedly enjoy all that our Otsego Lake has to offer regarding activities and sports. But, unless they plan a return trip during the winter, they miss out on the beauty you described...its the main reason our favorite season in Cooperstown is winter!
Thanks for being great guests and we truly hope you and your 14 friends will consider a return visit as Preferred Guests! Liz and Bill
We had the pleasure of staying at the Tree House and Bird's Nest this January, hosting 15 others for a reunion weekend, and it was the perfect combination of space, location and scenery. The home is big and beautiful with modern amenities and just a few minutes north of Cooperstown, so it's easy to pop in to town to run errands, sightsee, etc. Bill, the owner of the property, communicated with us in the weeks leading up to the trip and sent very thorough details with clear directions to the house, where everything was and how to check out. Everyone had a really great time and we've already started talking about going back in the spring. Couldn't have asked for a better house for this trip.
Hey Kareem, Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are always happy when our guests are happy:)
We hope to welcome you and any of your guests back as Preferred Guests in the near future.
Liz and Bill
Beautiful property that feels like home with tons of space!!!
We spent a frigid weekend at the treehouse but hardly noticed the cold. The fireplace was ready to go with plenty of wood on hand. The kitchen was large and we were able to cook all meals needed for our group. We haven’t stopped talking about our trip and are already discussing another visit next year!
Ah yes...winter in central NY, the perfect time and place to huddle with family and friends (and a warm beverage:)
Patrick, we're so glad you enjoyed your visit despite the arctic blast. Thank you for your comments and for being great guests!
Liz and Bill
A wonderful Christmas 🎄
This was the second holiday gathering for our extended family at the Treehouse - the first was for Thanksgiving last year. The house is fabulous, as pictures from the website will attest. Owner Bill Miller could not have been more thoughtful and accommodating. He even delivered a Christmas tree to the house for us! We had a wonderful holiday celebration with all of our children and grandchildren. Highly recommended!
Well, you've now enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas at The Treehouse.
Maybe consider a return visit for 4Th of July or perhaps Labor Day weekend so you can enjoy that lake you've been seeing through the windows:)
Thank you again for being great guests!
