Why Peter Kapsales chose Central Leatherstocking

We use this property ourselves in the off-season and rent it to cover costs. Any income above cost we invest back in the property. This is not a cash making business like all the rentals in the Cooperstown area and we price our rental at break-even.

Beautiful, peaceful setting and great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Terrific setting atop a hill, overlooking Lake Otsego. House layout was perfect for us--a multi-generational family. Plenty of space, nicely appointed. Quiet sitting room for grandmom. Modern kitchen, large breakfast room with many windows--plenty of light and great views. Outside deck with yard--great for the kids, as was the family room with fireplace and big screen TV. Beds were very comfortable. Upstairs layout practical for families. Kayaking from dock across the street. Easy ride into town and local attractions--Farmer's Museum and village, Cooper Art Museum (Andrew Wyeth exhibit currently), and Cooperstown, home of many great shops and the baseball Hall of Fame. Peter was acccessible by email for info and details prior to and during our stay. We are grateful to have VRBO options like this.

Beautiful Lakefront Home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying at this property during a Cooperstown week for my son. House was fully stocked with all that you could want. The drive to the fields was approx 12-15 min, which was manageable. We spent many hours fishing off of there dock and small little beach area. Would stay again if the occasion arose.

Would stay again

  • 4 of 5

Large, comfortable and very clean. Beautiful views. Owner left clear instructions. Left 4 stars because of dangerous entry walk to house and exposed, rusty metal at dock area. Had cold weather our week so don't know how cool house stays in summer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. The dock area is scheduled to be completely renovated. Unfortunately, the contractor is 6+ months behind on the work. Late snow storms, and heavy flooding in the area has backed his schedule up since he has had to repair many of the existing docks damaged by the high water and also capture those that floated away. Very few contractors can renovate the waterfront (they use a barge and approach from the lakeside where they can easily access the waterfront, remove old material, and bring in material for construction; and of course have access to electricity for power equipment through the barge's electric power). Therefore, waterfront owners do not have many alternatives, but to wait for the work to be done. The walk to the house from the parking area is about a 10% grade downhill. This is the first concern I have heard about it. In the winter, the house is closed from Dec through Feb, and I agree that it could be an issue for people who need assistance walking if the ground was frozen or an ice condition. We do have a second parking area, completely level with the house which I could have recommended using if I knew the gradient was an issue. I will look at this further to see if an improvement can be made.

Beautiful house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the views of the lake were amazing. Lovely family room with big tv. We stayed three days and did not take advantage of the kayaks, but I can see where they would be so much fun on the lake in the summer! Great location great house!!

Great mini vacation in Cooperstown

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Deer Ridge Lodge in Cooperstown, NY for 2 days to see the Baseball Hall of Fame and other sites in Cooperstown. The house was a perfect fit for the 6 of us. The kitchen is big and clean and has everything you need. The living room is huge with a very comfortable sectional and large television. The house sits on a hill and you need to cross the street to get to the lake (only drawback - be careful crossing the street if you have small children). If it was nicer weather, we would've enjoyed going out on the lake in the complimentary kayaks and canoe. The house is very close to the downtown area, only a few miles drive. We visited the area out of season which is anytime after Labor Day but we enjoyed going to the Hall of Fame, Cooperstown Distillery, Ommegang Brewery and a few good restaurants before leaving the area. I recommend the house if your family is looking for a nice, cozy place to stay that's close to everything.
