About The Owner

The lakehouse is privately owned by Nancy & John Guzzo. After purchasing the lakefront property they've spent most weekends for a year and a half making improvements such as: adding fully furnished 1-bedroom rental unit, 80 ft. waterfront retaining wall with railings, 40 ft. dock along the new wall, stamped concrete walls and walkways, newly sodded lawn & other landscaping, upper deck, fire pit, etc. It truly is a beautiful site.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

Why The Owner chose Central Leatherstocking

One of the reasons we chose to purchase this particular house was because the site is very close to the water - and we've also dreamed of owning a waterfront property. Most houses on the lake are 2 or 3 or more stories above the water level with numerous flights of stairs. We're just above the water level. Goodyear Lake appealed to us because it's picturesque, not extremely active (because there is no public launch). So, most days it's very quiet and relaxing.

What makes this apartment unique

Very safe neighborhood with excellent neighbors, not to close, but just close enough.

Perfect place to stay for Cooperstown All Star Village or Dreams Park

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO for several years now and this place is at the top of our list. The home was clean, beds comfortable, the owners John and Nancy were very accommodating and thought of everything you would need to make this your home for the week. We choose to cook several of you meals, the kitchen was well equipped and we are able to find everything we needed to cook. There was only a small counter-top so making large pizza was not an option but, we were able to cook a roast or grill outside. There were also a lot of restaurants, if you choose not to cook. The view of the lake was awesome, and our kids enjoyed using the Kayaks and fishing poles. It was great to come back to a place that felt like home after spending the day at the ball fields. We highly recommend this rental to others, whether your son or daughter plays at All Star Village ( closer) , Dreams Park or you just want to visit lake front retreat .

Great place and location to stay near Cooperstown

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time doing VRBO and can say it was a most positive experience. This place on Goodyear Lake was just perfect for us and the type of place we needed to make this an even better trip. The owners of the property are more than accommodating, friendly and very nice people. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will recommend this to others planning on visiting the area. The accommodations were well taken care of, comfortable and quiet.

Beautiful setting on the lake. 10 minutes from Dreams Park

  • 4 of 5


Beautiful location/Close to Dreams park/Very quiet and peaceful/Photos on listing are accurate/Owners are very nice and return your calls/Use of kayaks,fishing poles,life vests/Great Swimming in lake/Very spacious rental/Everything you need is supplied


Owners are gone M-F but home on weekends, and they are early risers and you can hear them walking above you in the early AM/Internet is very slow, and we were without internet the last 2 days due to storms knocking out the router which was in the owners dwelling and we could not re-set/The window A/C unit in the bedroom was making a loud rattling noise during our visit waking us a up a few times during the night/Humidifier also made loud noises like someone was knocking on the walls

My overall impression is positive. We were pleased with the rental, the lake, and the location.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here when our middle son was playing baseball in Cooperstown. This place was exactly what we wanted. Right on the water and plenty of room for 4 of us. Nancy and John go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We really enjoyed the floating dock and the kayaks. Fishing and swimming too! Perfect place to return to after long days at the ballpark. Hope we can come back!

Wonderful week stay at this lakefront home!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for the week of July 8-15, 2016 for our son's baseball tournament. The accommodations were wonderful. Nancy and John thought off everything that we would need and more. Super nice couple and the lake is breathtaking. Includes firepit, bbq, fishing poles, and vest. Kids loved the canoe and kayaks and the fishing. We had plenty of room for the four of us and the kitchenette was wonderful. AC in our room was a plus. We were only 9 miles from Cooperstown Dream Park. The only thing was the wifi was a little spotty but not really a problem. Would definitely come back if we happen to be in that area again and will recommend to our friends who will be coming to Cooperstown in the near future.
