Looking for THE ideal Winter or Summer dream vacation home...you've found it!





Unlike any other lakefront location, the ArrowHead Pointe enclave of 5 homes provides guests with a true 'lake country living' experience. Located 7 miles north of Cooperstown, New York (often referred to as America’s Most Perfect Village) and its outstanding waterfront location on Otsego Lake, AHP is the perfect location for your vacation.

Showcasing HANDCRAFTED POST AND BEAM CONSTRUCTION imported from British Columbia, the lodges are true works of art, combining massive timbers with the finest of detail.

For the discriminating family seeking an exceptional home with outstanding lakefront amenities, ArrowHead Pointe will exceed your expectations!


“AHP” is a lakeside, 5-unit enclave of luxury handcrafted log post and beam homes. Cayuga Lodge has been PROFESSIONALLY DECORATED to provide the most wonderful accommodation in the Cooperstown area. Surrounded by AUTHENTIC NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN ARTIFACTS and a collection of FINE FOLK ART, your stay at AHP will be the centerpiece of your vacation.

The lake-level features two beautifully appointed guest suites (one with window seat that can easily function as sleeping accommodation for a child), both suites have MARBLE OR GRANITE BATHROOMS with frameless glass showers and AHP 'signature' HANDCRAFTED CEDAR AND BURL pedestal sinks made with clear glass vessels.

This lower level is home to the MEDIA ROOM with all LEATHER FURNITURE (including a queen pull out sofa bed), a FULL WET BAR and large flat screen television hidden behind a beautiful original oil painting. Outside of the french sliders is a 30' x 15' BLUESTONE PATIO with stone steps and walk to the lake and THE BOATHOUSE. The spiral stairs lead from the patio to the main level deck of the condo.

The MAIN LEVEL is wide open for grand entertaining and 'lake country living' featuring a CHEF'S DREAM KITCHEN, dining room with a 12 foot long REDWOOD SLAB TABLE, great room, sitting area, SEVERAL FIREPLACES…all exposed to MAGNIFICENT VIEWS OF OTSEGO LAKE through walls of French glass doors leading to large deck and walkway.

The focal point is the atrium, housing a 42' TALL MAPLE TREE supporting a 3-story open log staircase capped with electronic sky lights. The massive tree was harvested from this property and was lowered into the building before the roof was installed. The tree was then hand-peeled, sanded, polished and oil rubbed to a furniture grade finish.

The master suite with spa bathroom, sitting room with fireplace and the bed chamber with fireplace is sequestered on the third floor and is reached via the staircase or the private three-stop elevator.

The two-story entertainment Boathouse is the hub of lakefront amenities…heated pool, beach, lakeside gazebo, kayaks, fishing, private dock for your boat or a rental boat.

The homes at ArrowHead Pointe are also available for purchase beginning at $1,725,000 (and on a very limited basis 1/4 fractional shares at $450,000).

Spending time at Cayuga Lodge South is a true once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience.

Play your early rounds of golf during the spring season at Otsego Golf Club or The Leatherstocking Golf Course...both built right along the shoreline of Otsego.

Summer time...there is no better place to enjoy lake-country living than on the shore of The Glimmerglass...boating, fishing, kayaking, lazing and floating about, sailing...

When the leaves change color and the scent of burning wood fills the air, its leaf-peeping season... a great time to explore the area without the summer crowds.

Experience Otsego Lake and Cooperstown in the winter...gather round the fireplace, explore the frozen lake, skate, ski and sled.

Available at additional cost: private chef for a special meal, daily house cleaning and laundry, chauffeur/boatman for our mahogany vintage Chris Craft and/or performance water-sports boat. Rental boat can be reserved and docked on site ready for your arrival.

About William Miller

My name is Bill Miller and I am the sponsor/developer/owner of the ArrowHead Pointe condos. In constructing AHP, the goal was to create an exceptional lake front resort with very careful attention paid to the finest details. The handcrafted log homes were produced in British Columbia from massive Douglas fir trees. The finishing detail work and hand-built interiors were accomplished by local artisans. The interior furnishings were collected over a 2 year period and provide for a sumptuous retreat.

William Miller purchased this lodge in 2005

Why William Miller chose Central Leatherstocking

Having spent my childhood years on Otsego Lake, I was able to enjoy all kinds of water activities like boating and skiing. When my children were born, my wife and I decided to return to Cooperstown and introduce our children to the same types of outdoor activities. They now love spending time with friends on the water, or even just sitting on the dock or around the fireplace; all are special ways of spending quality time.

What makes this lodge unique

Nothing is better than the early evening light as it casts its glow on the distant mountains and plays its magic with ever-changing colors of the lake. Sipping a favorite drink on the dock or simply floating in a kayak and taking in the evening solitude can be a perfect ending to every day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for opening up your "condo" to our family and friends. I put quotes around condo because this is really a "great lodge", similar to what you would find in the Adirondack's or out West. We could not have dreamed of a more comfortable home or a better location on such a fantastic lake! The pictures truly do not do justice to the fine details of the home or the beautiful landscaping or the views of the lake. Count us in for next summer, and the summer after that, and after that...

Best Christmas Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Bill! I just wanted to let you know how much we loved the cabin!!! In person, it took our breath away!!! We had a blast!!! It definitely put us in the Christmas spirit with the snow, the cabin and the lake. Family and friends who saw our pictures are asking about the cabin and want to go there!!!

The details in the design and decorating are incredible!!! You'd only see cabin rentals like these out West. Thanks again for answering our questions and getting back to us quickly regarding the Wi-Fi. Have a Happy New Year!!!

Beautiful luxurious house

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in september in Cayuga (the name of the house) on Otsega lake. It's a beautiful large home, with 3 floors. The children and their friends were on the ground floor where they had their own bedrooms overlooking the lake and each their own bathrooms. The 1st floor was the communal area with a large, well equipped kitchen and two seating areas, each with a fireplace, and dining table. A deck allows one to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful view of the lake. The 2nd floor holds the master bedroom with master bath, a separate sitting area, again with fireplace, and a couple of small decks/balconies. There is a lift for those who are not able to use the stairs (great for luggage!). From the house it's a 2 minute walk to the dock where there are 4 kayaks to use. The lake is glorious. There is also a small pool with comfortable chairs. We had a great time. The week flew by. Cooperstown is a fun town with lots of things to do and the surrounding area is hilly and beautiful. We swam, kayaked, hiked, visited a couple of museums, walked through the town, toured the countryside. It's a wonderful place to spend your vacation and Cayuga is a super comfortable house from where to explore the area.

Owner's Response: Many people find Autumn to be the perfect time to visit Cooperstown...the crowds have left the museums and restaurants and the lake is so uncrowded it feels like your own private lake. Yet the weather is warm enough to fully enjoy the region and the water. We look forward to welcoming you back as Preferred Guests!

The most amazing weekend of our lives!

  • 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:)

Amazing Property, Amazing Views, Gorgeous Lake and Wonderful Town!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families stay here while our boys played at Cooperstown Dreams Park. We looked at all the various websites and many pictures of lake homes while planning our trip. We wanted enough space and separate bathrooms for each family, a pool for our little ones and to be within a 20 minute drive of the park. This amazing place did all that and more. Check in was simple, the pictures really don't do any of the actual craftsmanship any justice, and the place was huge. Parking is in a parking lot (not off the road where you fear for your life like many lake properties in Cooperstown) and the place was immaculate. On check in, we met the owner and went over any details and questions, he recommended a few restaurants (Redneck BBQ and Blue Mingo, both very good) and let us know where to find groceries. While planning our trip he also recommended boat rentals companies. We used "Chuck" who rented us a pontoon deck boat for the week and we were able to keep it on our property dock without returning it every night. Although, the Dreams Park experience is great for every 12yr old baseball player, all 3 families agreed we would come back to this spot for a family vacation, it's that nice. The lake is crystal clear and made for great swimming, tubbing, waterskiing and the scenery couldn't be more beautiful. This place and experience was awesome!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to share details of your vacation at our lodge! Liz and I truly appreciate hearing what our guests did while visiting Cooperstown. Otsego Lake is really an amazing body of water...unlike the other lakes in the area, Otsego is deep (over 160 feet), has a cold-water fishery (salmon, trout, pike, etc), and is so clear that visibility is more than 20 feet! We look forward to welcoming you back so you can spend more time on (and in) the lake and exploring our region in central New York!!
