Welcome home!

This is truly a restful place to retire to after a long day filled with local activities. Fish off you private dock, toss a ball together on the expansive front lawn, cook up a special meal, sip a glass of wine as the moon rises over the lake and mountains.

Parking is conveniently provided right next to your patio for easy loading/unloading. We can accommodate 4 cars and there is over-flow parking just across the driveway.

About Michele Barry


I'm Michele. I am the property manager/listing agent for this rental space. I have spent much of my life in Cooperstown and love it here! It is always a pleasure for me to share local information with my guests, so please reach out to me with your questions.

Why Michele Barry chose Central Leatherstocking

Cooperstown has an alluring charm I've always found irresistible. With its bustling and historic downtown, the breathtaking presence of Otsego Lake and all it offers, world class museums and opera, and of course, home to America's favorite pastime...what's not to love?

What makes this cabin unique

This charming cabin offers a haven just out of town, but easily accessible to all local attractions and amenities. I love the pretty lake views, the quiet and safety that comes from being off the main road, and the overall peaceful feel of this secluded, rustic place. The interior space is bright, efficient and clean!

close enough to everything and still private

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice to stay at. It was so close to everything but private enough and has access to a private dock area on the lake. Michele responded to all requests very quickly and answered questions as they came up. There is also a very nice binder with all sorts of local information and suggestions. It definitely helped us plan where to go.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you liked Four Directions! It is a sweet, private, and pastoral place, and as you mentioned, close to everything. Thank you for making use of the informational binder, I'm glad to know that in this age of technology, some folks are okay with flipping through real pages! Also, I'm so impressed that you fit time in to visit the dock, given your busy weekend...Good for you!! This lake is just too beautiful to miss out on! Thank you for reviewing Four Directions!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin near a large (7+ mile) lake. Beautiful view of the sunrise over the lake from the front porch. Should be a great location for fishing (didn't catch anything, but I'm sure that's my fault). Modern amenities, large rooms, love the wood use throughout.

About 5 miles from Cooperstown, for meals/baseball/etc.

Glad we had free wifi, because we didn't have any AT&T cell service at the house or a lot of the surrounding area. Nice to be somewhat off the grid :)

A beautiful clean property! With all the convenience of home.

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay! The lake front is incredible, we went kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, and swimming. Enjoyed drinking coffee each morning on the patio while taking in the breath taking views, and listening to the sounds of nature.

Thank you Michelle for providing such a wonderful experience!

The property was clean, comfortable and easily accessible to CDP

  • 4 of 5

Hi Michele,

Thank you so much for having us at Four Directions!! I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you in person. We enjoyed our stay in Cooperstown very much. The property was perfect for the three of us. We enjoyed having the paddle boat and kayak as well. The washer and dryer was a life saver with the rain we had last week. Everything was clean and comfortable, and I enjoyed the fresh flowers that magically appeared on the patio! :):) Our only minor issue was with the grill. The first time we used it, there was a mouse nest inside. My husband cleaned it out, so hopefully they will not be back. I am hoping my younger son is able to attend CDP as well. We will definitely keep your special place in mind if we come again. I would recommend anyone with 2-3 people highly consider Four Directions. Again, thank you for such a pleasant stay! Kellee

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Four Directions Kellee. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, and hoping your son had a fun and successful week of baseball. I am very sorry, and embarrassed, about the grill. Rest assure, that will not happen again, EVER. We really appreciate you recommending Four Directions, and sincerely hope you do stay with us next time you visit the area.

Great Cabin on Lake Otsego

  • 5 of 5

Four Directions is a wonderful cabin that really fits the property description. The cabin itself was very clean, well-maintained, and well-stocked with towels, sheets, laundry and kitchen goods, etc., and was more than enough space for my wife and me. Dock access is a short, 5 minute walk, and the dock was a great place to watch the sun rise or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening. The paddleboat and kayak were a nice touch, too. Michelle was a great host--easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to any questions we had about the area. The cabin's location was a definite plus, because it's far enough outside of the village to avoid the traffic and hustle and bustle, but close enough that it's an easy drive into town for the Hall of Fame or for a visit to the art museum. I thought the cabin to be a great value, and I would definitely recommend to friends and relatives. We plan to stay here again next summer.
