Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Hartwick - 42North

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

42 North is a luxuriously renovated 3 BR/2BA log home providing a gracious setting for enjoying the Cooperstown area in supreme comfort. Set on a gentle hillside, a wide front porch looks out over a large front lawn and mountain views while a private bluestone patio with a Weber grill and koi pond invites entertaining and relaxation outdoors. A newly paved driveway means easy access to all 42 North has to offer.

Inside, the renovated kitchen is complete with soapstone countertops, glass tile backsplash and all stainless appliances, including a wine refrigerator. A large center island with seating provides ample work space as well as a gathering place during meal preparations. The first of two bars provides an additional gathering spot. The combined dining and living room features bay windows and a beamed cathedral ceiling. A large dining table comfortably seats 8 and leather living room furniture is centered on a wood stove and flat-screen with surround sound. The game room features a classic slate pool table, wood paneled fireplace with thermostat-controlled propane stove, a large wet bar with beverage refrigerator, a 60” plasma TV with premium surround sound and BlueRay, and ample seating.

Each of the three bedrooms features queen-size Stearns & Foster pillow top mattresses, large closets, and excellent storage. One guest bedroom has a wall-mounted flat screen TV. The master bedroom en-suite is a full bath with storage, and the second full bath is shared by the secondary bedrooms. The master en-suite sports a river stone floored walk in shower and the guest bath a deep soaking tub. Both bathrooms were renovated less than a year ago with marble, high end fixtures and heat lamps to soothe away the chills of winter. Additional sleeping space to a capacity of 10 is provided by a sleeper sofa and futon in the game room.

All bedrooms and the game room are carpeted, bathrooms are tiled, and the remainder of the house sports warm pine flooring. Paint colors were selected to highlight the log walls help create a contemporary coziness that is irresistible.

An automatic whole house propane generator ensures weather will not adversely affect your ability to enjoy your stay. A Kinetico water system provides softened, iron-free water for bathing, laundry and drinking. The premium Samsung laundry machines feature steam settings - wrinkle free clothes and warm towels are readily had!

About Tom Rusk

A native of Ohio, I have lived in the Cooperstown area since 2009 and currently reside in the Village of Cooperstown.

Tom Rusk purchased this house in 2009

Why Tom Rusk chose New York

This property was purchased for the adventure of log home living when I relocated to Central New York for work. Having lived in cities and visited family in rural areas, I was up for the adventure. That path has now included completely renovating the original main home (42 North), adding the garage and apartment (1 Phinney Creek@ 42 North) and continuing to tend the property, now for the use of guests. The property was simply too unique to sell when my wife and I moved into the Village of Cooperstown to occupy another adventure and project house - this time an 1885 Victorian. We are happy to be stewards of both properties and share 42 North with others.

What makes this house unique

42 North is conveniently located 12-15 minutes outside the Village of Cooperstown but with very easy access to area amenities. The nearest gas stations are about 4 miles away in either direction and the nearest groceries about 15 minutes away in either direction. Larger shopping centers are 35 minutes to the south and 45 minutes to the north.

In summer, 42 North is just far enough removed from area baseball tournament camps to be quiet and enjoyable yet convenient for families attending these camps.

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We drove up from Manhattan for a girls' weekend and a trip to Pail Shop Vineyards in Fly Creek. After a long drive, we were delighted upon our arrival at this cabin. It is beautifully done, extremely tasteful and the owner obviously has an impeccable attention to detail (we are rather picky!). Great beds and linens, lots of space, all the kitchen and bar accessories we needed. This was a luxurious retreat in the country. We'd come back just to have more time to enjoy the house!

Excellent on all accounts

  • 5 of 5

This property is gorgeous and well maintained with attention to details. It did NOT have that musty rental smell, and the beds were fresh and comfortable. The set up worked well for our family and the family with whom we shared the space. We were in Cooperstown for the Dreams Park Tournament, and while the house was a few miles from the park, but we did not mind the drive at all. As a city dweller, I loved watching the stars at night and resting in a quiet environment.

Outstanding, great in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of the best that I have ever rented. The owners were outstanding and the house had every amenity--and then some. In particular, it was great having 2 surround sound TV systems for the kids and for us. The pool table teceived heavy use and the wood burning stove made for cozy evenings. we would stay here again idn a secon
