About Michele Barry

Hi, I'm Michele,

I am the property manager and rental agent for Sunrise Splendor. I also live downstairs and am available to help out when needed.

Cooperstown is a beautiful place to visit, work and live. I've spent most of my summers here, and now reside here year 'round. Over time I have come to know some of the area's best kept secrets. I hope you reach out to me for ideas and recommendations during your stay.

There is a hospitality link that VRBO allows owners/managers to create for their guests. When you receive this link upon booking, I highly recommend perusing it for my personal, local favorites. If you are not a techy person, that's okay! We can chat about it when you arrive. I love sharing my love for the area with guests, so please don't be shy!

What makes this apartment unique

Otsego Lake is lovely. I adore every bit of its shoreline. This spot in particular is among my favorites as it not only provides stunning views of the lake, but also of Sleeping Lion Mountain at the North end. It is only from this vantage point that you can appreciate the where its name is derived from. As an early riser, nothing is prettier than the sun cresting over the mountains and shimmering on the water. You are in the perfect spot for this pleasing view. At day's end, when the sun sets behind us, we have the most beautiful skies! The pinks and purple hues reflect off the clouds and the mountains across the lake, and simply glow upon the water. Truly a gift to live here!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The host made us feel so welcome with warm baked bread on arrival. The listing was accurate and the setting was idealic. We had a great week on the lake. I would not underestimate the refreshment of jumping in the lake off the dock. The morning sun was spectacular over the lake and the neighborhood (and neighbors) were great. What a pleasant surprise to find such a wonderful accommodation - a home away from home. We will be back.

Wonderful Lakeside location in Bucolic Cooperstown

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Michele's apartment overlooking Lake Otsego. The home was comfortable, the views incredible both night and day and Michele's hospitality was fantastic.

The location worked very well for us, as we were in Cooperstown while my son spent the week playing baseball at Cooperstown Dreams Park. The house is 10 minutes from downtown Cooperstown and another 7-8 minutes to Dreams Park - an easy, convenient drive all times of day.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed to make our vacation easy and enjoy the wonderful surroundings. I took advantage of the lake and went standup paddleboarding a few times, leaving my gear lakeside on her dock.

I highly recommend staying here if you are traveling to Cooperstown.

Very Peaceful, Clean with Exceptional Views!! Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this place. Michelle was very helpful in getting us there and setting up the stay with all the information. The place was very clean and exceeded our expectations. We were there for Cooperstown baseball and the drive was pleasant and only 15 min from town. This place is very quite and relaxing with all the amenities you would hope for away from home. Michelle even has a notebook with all the surrounding food and attractions. ( Go eat at NY Pizza ). The deck was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the picture perfect view of the lake which was unbelievable! Others parents on our team were very jealous of our place and view for the week. The landscaping (I believe is done by Michelle was manicured to perfection which added to the the enjoyment of our stay. The online picture does not depict the true justice of the landscaping beauty. Although Michelle was just a doorstep away, we never saw or heard a word, but we felt she was always there to help. Sometimes we were very late coming in from games ( 1 am or later)due to delays from rain, but we always felt safe, and even did not worry about locking the doors when we left. I would highly recommend this Apt. and would stay there again!! Don't pass this place up!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the terrific review! Your family was a delight to host!! So glad you enjoyed your visit to Cooperstown and all it has to offer. Yes, NY Pizzeria is phenomenol, our views are pretty amazing, and the grounds do get quite lush here in the summertime...thank you for noticing and appreciating them. It is a joy to maintain them as I get just as much pleasure from the surrounding beauty as you all did! You brought up another good! It is really a lovely area with watchful neighbors, and zero tolerance for questionable behavior. It is a joy to live in a place where you don't fret if the doors are left open and you trust your neighbors. :)) Regarding late nights...I often wonder if families have any idea how late their nights may end up being when they come is rare for anyone to get through the week without a few rained out days requiring those late night games. They take their baseball very seriously here!!

Beautiful house overlooking Otsego Lake

  • 5 of 5

Over the past 15+ years my husband and I have rented many VRBO sites in several different locations throughout the US, his comment after being at Sunrise Splendor for just a few hours was "this is the best place you have ever found for us." The house is very comfortable/clean and homey but at the same time beautiful with several lovely art pieces and lots of nautical memorabilia, just when you think you've seen everything you discover something else. The setting is beautiful as well, being right across the street from Lake Otsego. We really enjoyed morning coffee and afternoon wine time gazing at the lake and relaxing after long days of exploring. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to create any kind of meal! However if you don't feel like cooking the quaint village of Cooperstown is not far, about 5.5 miles, we enjoyed Mel's 22 for lunch and Alex's Bistro for dinner. We also met fun people and had good drinks at the distillery on Main Street. Michele is a delightful hostess, giving you total privacy but making certain you feel welcome and knowing she is there if you need "anything." We spent a few minutes chatting with her and you instantly feel "at home" in her presence. I will definitely recommend Sunrise Splendor to anyone I know of or hear of who is traveling to the Cooperstown area.

Owner's Response: Karen, Thank you for your lovely review of Sunrise Splendor! I apologize for responding so long after your visit. I can't tell you how rewarding it is to have our guests feel so comfortable and at home during their stay here. We feel the majesty and beauty of our lake every day and while we love it dearly, we tend to take it for granted. However, when we hear of the impact it has on our visitors, it reminds us of how fortunate we are to live in its midst. Thank you!! We sincerely hope you consider visiting us again sometime. :)

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as advertised. Very clean and comfortable, well stocked, and a great view of Otsego Lake. It was just a short drive to Main St. and the Hall of Fame. The host, Michele, was extremely helpful and accommodating before and during our stay including good recommendations for eating. We enjoyed our stay. The only draw back was the parking for the apartment was off a very bumpy dirt road and not easily visible from the main road. Besides that, highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Hi Vincent! So glad you and your brother enjoyed your visit really is a special place! Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to review Sunrise Splendor. Thankfully, our road has been repaired since our torrential rain which washed it out last summer...all of our guests were troopers making their way through the guantlet!! Hopefully the recent fix will last for a very long time. It would be such a pleasure to host you again!

Car: necessary

We are located 5.7 miles north of the village of Cooperstown. It is a lovely lakeside drive the full distance.

We are a 15 - 20 minute drive to Dreams Park fields.

I live on premises so you will see me from time to time. In the summer months Mark, the very kind owner will also be around. I'll greet you, give you general information and then let you have your privacy.

The neighborhood has a laid back lake appeal and primarily consists of privately owned properties. It is peaceful around here and the neighbors are lovely! Busy holidays bring more traffic than usual through West Lake Road, but aside from boats cruising the lake, and resounding laughter of fun-filled summer days, it is pretty tame.

A car is going to be important as you are 5.7 miles from town. Once you get within a mile of Cooperstown, you can park just before the Fenimore Art Museum in the 'Cooperstown Trolley' parking lot. From there you can take the trolley into town as parking can be hard to find, and is fee-based.
