Great view of the lake and nice location between Oneonta and Cooperstown.

  • 5 of 5

Colleen and Larry were great with communications. Colleen met us upon arrival to show us all of the amenities of the home and assist with any pointers on groceries, dining locations, etc. The home provided comfortable beds and plenty of seating for relaxing during downtime between baseball games. The highlight of the property is right out the back patio door. The view from the deck is amazing and was great to wake up to every morning. We wish we could have stayed longer.

great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the lake view paradise. The view is spectacular at night and in the mornings. We had everything we needed. My only recommendation would be to have some beach towels as many of the people who are staying may not be traveling with towels for the lake or hot tub. A towel bar in the master bath would be nice as well but is a very minor detail. Our drive was 10 minutes to get to dreams park which was a beautiful drive. In fact we often beat the traffic coming into the park from Cooperstown direction. Overall this is the perfect location for any family that will be at Dreams park or All star village. It is a good central location with stores about 8 minutes away. Thanks again to Larry and Colleen for letting us stay there.

Great home, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

It really was a fabulous house: very clean, comfortable sleeping for our group of 8 people & convenient 20 minute drive to Cooperstown Dreams Park. The owners Colleen and Larry were very responsive and accommodating. We really enjoyed all the special touches that made us feel welcomed in their home, such as a lovely gift basket and chocolates on pillows. My only gripe concerns the coin operated washer and dryer. I have never stayed on a property where I had to pay extra for this. Overall, the positive definitely out weighed the negative. The kids really enjoyed fishing & kayaking off the private lake front pier and having the local vendor deliver the kayak made it very convenient. I would certainly recommend this property.

Central New York

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The host and hostess met us at the door upon arrival. They were very friendly and accommodating with checkin and checkout. We found the property to very open and comfortable for seven middle aged gals. We travel frequently visiting numerous lakeside properties within central New York area. By far, this was the cleanest property we have ever visited. Every bed was comfortable with new mattresses. Each bedroom was well stocked with extra blankets. The hot tub was clean and up to temp right away. It had a wonderful view of the lake from an elevated deck. We would highly recommend it to any group - Thanks, Larry and Colleen!

What more could you want?

Beautiful views, amazing home with everything you could need and wonderful owners (Colleen and Larry) who give great local recommendations.

Clean and spacious home with 2 decks overlooking a gorgeous lake and a hot tub.

Our weekend was awesome, the winery/brewery tour is a must for interested visitors and Jim from Doubleday Drivers is the best way to get around for that.

All in all this really was a great place to stay, only wish we had stayed longer.

We will be back!
