Would be 5 stars except
We booked for our son’s baseball tournament at Cooperstown Dreams Park and discovered that the drive to and from was much longer than the description suggested. I was a coach staying in the team barracks, and It was a good 45m drive during the day and almost an hour at night for my wife and 2 other kids.
Nice setting, rustic cabin. Nice except that drive. I wish she and the kids were closer to the park so they had more flexibility between games
Myself, my husband and our very best friends spent Memorial Day weekend at this old farmhouse. The location was perfect. The views and the land along with the lake were just right. The house is an old farmhouse in the process of being renovated. It has a really nice sun room that was perfect when the weather didn't cooperate. Contacting "Bill " was easy and he always answered our questions almost immediately. We really enjoyed our stay.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for being wonderful guests!
Cozy, spacious home on beautiful property
My son, his wife, grandson and I stayed here for a week and it worked perfectly for us. My son and grandson had a great time fishing and we were all able to spread out. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. The bath on the 1st floor provided privacy. The house was equipped with everything we needed. I especially loved the front sunroom. As said in other reviews work is in progress restoring this house but the old and new blended well and was very cozy
Hi Nancy. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I, as well, love the sunroom. It was worth every penny! Thanks again for being such a wonderful guest !
Great place, beautiful area, just what we needed
For some this would not be what they would want to stay in. It is a work in progress but for us, it worked out great. We were close enough to Dreams Park but still had the "away" feeling. My boys "LOVED" fishing in the lake and just exploring. The house itself is big enough for a family of 6 but sometimes tough with just one bathroom. The "cedar" room as we called it, was a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the sun on the days we had cold weather. Again, overall for us, this was a great place to stay! Thanks for everything ;)
I am am very happy to hear your family had an enjoyable stay ! It is great that your children enjoyed fishing, and the "sun room" Thanks for being a fantastic guest!
BEAUTIFUL SETTING!! The views were gorgeous! Access to lots of choices for running or walking on the hilly roads. The landscape was lovely. Bill made himself completely accessible; however the home had a few hazards...exposed outlet & fixtures; smell of fuel oil during and after use of furnace; the upper level floor had significant give and unevenness causing one to question its integrity; and there were a number of tripping hazards. We had a lovely time despite the structure.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Agreed, as mentioned in the description and( discussed in our phone conversations)the house is a " work in progress" and certainly not a luxurious lodge. I think the rental rates reflect that. Other guests can rest assured ,however, that the home is safe. Yes, there are some slight (1/4 inch or less)level changes between rooms. ( i assume this is the tripping hazard you are reffering to.) And the upstairs floors are uneven. This not uncommon in an older farm home.I have had the property professionally inspected by a structural engineer to insure its integrity.Additionally, The furnace and hot water heater are professionally maintained twice a year. Also,the home exceeds recommendations for Fire and Carbon Monoxide Alarms. Renters looking toward the summer of 18' can expect numerous upgrades including the addition of a sunroom, new light fixtures, etc.
Loved the view!!!
The house looks just like the pictures, very quaint. The view out the windows is breath taking. You can see the work being down little by little and I think when it is finished it will look spectacular. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home.
Thank you Michelle. I am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay !
