About Emily Kishbaugh

I grew up locally and moved to Cooperstown in 2010 to begin my job as the Assistant Marketing Director at the Clark Sports Center.

Emily Kishbaugh purchased this house in 2013

Why Emily Kishbaugh chose Hartwick

I purchased this property in the fall of 2013. It was already set up as a summer rental and included everything I had dreamed of. It has scenic views with breathtaking sunrises, country decor, privacy and close enough to everything I needed in Cooperstown.

Our Lilac Ridge vacation, 2017.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time here. House was old but had charm and character. If those walls could talk. Beautiful view of the meadow, great area to sit outside and fire pit. Played some croquet as well. Well equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Furniture was comfortable and plenty of games to play. Town was just a 15 minute drive away and we loved the Hall of Fame and the pontoon boating on the lake. Owners were very pleasant and easy to work with. Had a fuse blow and called Emily. Told us where the box was and we had it fixed in no time. My only complaint was the showers. Not a lot of pressure and as soon as you turned the cold on to balance out the temperature it was all cold. So you just had to shower with hot water and make it quick. But it was no big deal. We saw plenty of deer everywhere and such a great breeze outside every night. Had more than enough room for the 5 of us. Had a great week of 12 year old baseball at the dreams park. Overall it was a great vacation and I would have no problem recommending this property for someone considering renting up in Cooperstown.

Perfect for our Cooperstown Dreams Park Experience

  • 5 of 5

Great older home for our fantastic week (and final week) of baseball at Cooperstown Dreams Park. Super quiet and only 15 minutes from the baseball fields using Emily's back road directions. Be sure to learn the route during the day first... Kids loved the Wii games. Plenty of room for 2 families without feeling like you are encroaching on each others space. Comfy beds.. great kitchen, nice front and back deck and a perfect yard for star gazing.

Don't plan to use the house WIFI for work purposes.. (not Emily's fault). WIFI in Cooperstown is spotty. Enjoy the time away from your computer!

Food Suggestions-

Cooperstown Diner - near Baseball Hall of Fame. Scrumptious Milkshakes. It's tiny with only one waitress and one chef.

Redneck Barbeque-

Maskot's (across from Dreams Park)- good pizza, super slow service. Don't go when all the kids are there

DiMaggio's (also across from Dreams Park)- yummy Caesar salad

If we have the opportunity to visit again, we'd definitely return to Lilac Ridge.

We LOVE the Farmhouse!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great week! Unlike many rentals, this one had basics. Four, sugar, condiments, blender, coffee maker AND K-CUP coffee (We're from Seattle we need good coffee - having a K-CUP machine was awesome!).

We slept a lot of people - nice master with a Queendownstairs with newer washer/dryer and detergent. Three bedrooms upstairs...two Queens, two doubles and a twin.

Very clean - very homey and quaint.

The only downside was slow internet with limited data....not much to be done about that in the middle of the country. SO - unplug, unwind and enjoy the baseball!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Lilac Ridge was a well kept and charming place to stay! You feel a part of history in this 1800's farm house. The beautiful rolling hills and landscape provide ample solitude and wildlife while still being an easy 15-20 minute drive to The Dreams Park. Emily provided us with a warm welcome and was readily available if we needed anything. Highly recommend staying at Lilac Ridge.

Great, relaxing stay for baseball families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house last week while one of our sons was playing at the Cooperstown Dreams tournament. Quite simply, we loved this place. Far enough from everything to be isolated and relax but a quick 15 minute drive to get back to CDP for games. Plenty of space, great yard and a beautiful surrounding. Emily (the owner) was easy to work with and left a great run for our dog to enjoy. Plus, she left lemonade and cookies for our arrival. If my youngest son plays here in a few years, we will try to stay here again. The only thing to know, especially for those who need to stay electronically connected, the cell service is spotty at best. Also, the wifi situation wasn't the best. Other than those two things, this is a fantastic place to stay.
