Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday lodge in Hartwick - Covert's Moose Lodge

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-10)

Covert's Moose Lodge, which was built in 2002, was created with families and hunters in mind. We have only used the lodge for visiting guests and never lived in as a regular home. It is located on the end of a quiet road in a tranquil valley consisting of open meadows, hills, and a large ponds.

Relax in front of the gas fireplace or sit out on the deck or relax in the hot tub and enjoy the view of the hills, ponds, and wildlife.

The floor plan is open and roomy. The large floor to ceiling windows offer lots of natural light. Hardwood floors in the main living areas. Wall-to-wall carpet in all sleeping areas. Walls are natural pine.

Located in the Hartwick area of Otsego County, it is only 9 miles from the Village of Cooperstown and 18 miles from the City of Oneonta. We are just 7 miles from the Cooperstown Dreams Park and 16 miles from the Cooperstown All Star Village.

Over 5,000 acres of State lands are available for hunting, fishing, cross-country skiing, snow mobiling, and hiking just minutes from Covert's Moose Lodge. Otsego Lake, Canadarago Lake, Goodyear Lake, and Susquehanna River are all nearby.

We have satellite TV, wi-fi internet, local and long distance phone, central air conditioning, washer and dryer for your use.

About Terry Covert

Welcome to The Covert's Moose Lodge. Mike and Terry Covert are the proud owners of this fine establishment. The land had been in the Covert family name since 1960. The original structure located where Covert's Moose Lodge now stands was originally a hunting cabin, built in the 40's in New Jersey, dismantled and reassembled here in the 70's. It was torn down to make way for the new lodge in 2001.

The Covert's Moose Lodge was completed in June 2002. It is two stories tall and has 22 foot ceilings in the living room, with an antlered chandelier, gas fireplace and of course, a large Montana Moose Head (taken in 1953).

Terry Covert purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Terry Covert chose New York

Mike is an avid bird hunter and has traveled throughout the United States and Canada, hunting and staying in various places as he went. The lodge was a concept that he and Terry designed by taking all of their good experiences and combining them into one ideal place to stay.

Mike and Terry know that when you come here, you'll enjoy the peace and quiet and feel very relaxed when you leave. Thank you for considering Covert's Moose Lodge. We look forward to meeting you!

What makes this lodge unique

The lodge was designed by Mike Covert. It is a natural wood design with over 13,000 ft of tongue and grooved pine on its walls and hosts all of the modern amenities. It has a side covered porch with gas grill and hot tub on the front deck. The deck has tables with chairs for setting and relaxing. The front deck overlooks a meadow, hills and large ponds.

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for our 10th Anniversary.. Serene and quiet. We saw Turkey, deer, geese and ducks and did some fishing. The lodge itself was very clean and comfortable ! Terry was very accommodating. We would highly recommend staying here. Also very close to Cooperstown, breweries and wineries !

Really good. I would recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was very good. The house was clean, warm, and dry, which is more that we can say for the rest of our family that decided to camp in very rainy weather.

Great Stay at the Moose Lodge

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I had a truly great 3-day stay at the Moose Lodge. The location of this place is just one of it's outstanding features. It has a beautiful scenic view from the front porch and just the kind of great privacy that we were looking for. Cooperstown, the Baseball Hall of Fame, and other attractions are only about 10 minutes away. Terry was there to meet us on our arrival, was very friendly, and explained the features of the Lodge. The place is in great condition and extremely clean. We had a fantastic time and I highly recommend the Moose Lodge for families and groups visiting the Cooperstown area.

Very clean. Updated but rustic place. Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here for a bachelor party. Plenty to do within a short drive of the lodge. Breweries. Cooperstown. Oneonta. If you're looking to just escape, this is the place as well. Plenty of beautiful scenery and you can enjoy it from the deck complete with hot tub! Very lovely owners. Terry was a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Perfect lodge off the beaten path!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 5 day vacation to the Cooperstown NY area. Our stay at Covert's Moose Lodge was perfect. The lodge is situated on a secluded road and as you arrive the views are breathtaking. From the pond on the property, the rolling hills and beautiful green meadow. The lodge was spacious, modern with a wonderful kitchen and again the views from all the windows. Only 10 miles from Cooperstown it was an easy drive to Main Street, Ommegang Brewery, Glimmerglass State Park and all museums. The home was decorated beautifully, has a hot tub, front porch, open deck, gas grill, washer/dryer and so much more. I world definitely tell my friends and family about this beautiful retreat. Terry was a pleasure and was there to welcome us when we arrived. She took her time to show us around and made sure we were comfortable. We didn't want to leave. Hope to visit Terry and her beautiful home again.

Great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is beautiful and surrounded by gorgeous scenery. The inside was adorable and well maintained. Very clean. The evenings are extremely quiet and romantic. Would love to return. Everything you need to prepare and serve meals was in the kitchen. Just bring your own coffee or kCups as there are none at the lodge. Only wish we could have stayed longer.
