About William Miller

Our home was custom designed and handcrafted in British Columbia by Treehouse Log Homes in 2000. After the logs arrived on site it was re-erected using a crane and then all of the finishing and detail work was done by local craftsmen. The property was once part of a childrens camp from the 1940's and is mostly wooded and very private. Our goal during the construction and furnishing phase was to create a home that is rustic, yet exceedingly comfortable. This is a magical location in which to celebrate life with family and friends, to experience lake front living and to enjoy the peace and solitude of a secluded, yet convenient setting.

William Miller purchased this lodge in 2000

Why William Miller chose Central Leatherstocking

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is truly a retreat: a place to relax, unwind, enjoy the quiet and the beauty of the surroundings. The log home is awesome: instantly welcoming, beautifully decorated and equipped, yet warm and inviting; we felt very comfortable and very much at home. The attention to detail is evident throughout. There is plenty of room for a large group; if you travel with kids, the lower level would be a perfect area for them to entertain themselves. I particularly enjoyed the fireplace on the main level (with a fire all set and ready to be lit when we arrived!). This is an ideal, all-season location, within minutes to Cooperstown and all that it offers, or to the other little villages in the area. Summer sports are right out the door (the lake is gorgeous), several museums and other historic sites are found right around the lake, and the state park is within walking distance. What I personally enjoyed most was the amazing sense of peacefulness I experienced from the moment I arrived.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

So we had 8 guys go up for a bachelor party. Had an awesome time, house was perfect. Can only imagine its even more stunning in the summer because the lake views are tremendous. House slept us all more than comfortably, room for more. Great for groups. Hit up the Hall of Fame, Ommegang and the Cooperstown distillery while we were up there, plus dinner at Mels. Everything was great. Great place for a weekend trip.

Owner was also very easy to work with and communicates quickly, always a plus.

Beautiful house in a private location with lots of room.

  • 5 of 5

We went for a weekend hoping for an early spring. Despite arctic weather we ran into the treehouse was the perfect getaway. Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and relaxing space. The huge kitchen/dining area was a big plus!! The owner was very accommodating and responded quickly. Would definitely stay here again!

Fabulous home in Cooperstown!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Treehouse and Bird's Nest with our three children, their spouses, and nine grandchildren for Presidents Day weekend - to celebrate my 70th birthday. This house was perfect in every way - spectacular log house, beautiful setting, and more than enough space for all 16 of us, plus a newborn. One family loved the Birds' Nest, and we all loved the comfortable living room with plenty of chairs and sofas, large dining table that accommodated all of us, as well as the living area on the lower level with a TV and foosball for the kids. The house was the most well equipped house we have ever rented and the owner Bill couldn't have been easier to work with. We even met him as we arrived since he was making sure the driveway had enough sand on it for us to drive down. We highly recommend this spot!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse was the perfect spot for our family's Thanksgiving gathering. The property is beautiful and the house itself is awesome! Given the time of year, we didn't have a chance to enjoy the lake as we would have in the summer, but the setting and the view of the lake were lovely nonetheless. The kitchen is well-outfitted, even including two counter top roaster ovens for our turkeys, freeing up the oven space for other things.

Bill was extremely thoughtful in anticipating our needs, including making sure the driveway was well tended in the snow. There was even a prepared fire for us in the massive stone fireplace - all we had to do was light the match. We had a wonderful time. We'll be back!

Excellent accommodations.

Quiet, secluded, luxury accommodations along lake just a little north and east of Cooperstown, NY. Great access to Cooperstown, NY.

Owner's Response: There's something primal about being so close to the edge of a lake, especially when its so quiet you hear only the lapping of the waves, distant birds calling and an occasional fish slapping the water. We hope to see you again! Bill

The most amazing experience, the loveliest owners, a lake like Glimmerglass:

  • 5 of 5

We rented 3 properties from Coopersown luxury for our wedding weekend and i'll share my email to the owners Bill and Liz after our stay to help summarize how we felt if you're considering renting one of their properties:

Thanks soooooo much for letting us stay at you're homes. We had the most amazing weekend & of course, all the guests were blown away by the houses. You're properties are beautiful beyond words and your hospitality and accessibility has been incredibly impeccable and helpful. We really hope to continue to have this relationship with you and rent again next year.

We loved swimming in the clearest lake we've ever seen & playing on the lake trampoline. As you know, the treehouse isn't the easiest place to find so thank you for taking the time to answer our guests calls late at night when they got turned around. This has been the most amazing weekend of our lives

Thank you to you and your staff for making it happen.

Owner's Response: Shanna, Thanks so much for your email. Cooperstown is fast becoming a true wedding destination. We often hear from our guests the same comments about Otsego Lake...so clean, so ... uncrowded! Staying "on the lake" in one of our handcrafted log homes brings another layer of interest and enjoyment to every wedding weekend! We home to welcome you back when you'll have time to relax and explore our region. Once again, BIG congrats:)
