Now for the story.....The “Lucky Duck” is so named because we feel that we are just about the Luckiest of Ducks on earth to be the owners of such a Glorious property. You will feel the same to be a guest here.

First it is very Important for you to know is that the house we are renting to you is NOT A HOUSE THAT WE LIVE IN DURING THE YEAR, THEN MOVE OUR 'STUFF' OUT OF IT WHEN YOU WANT TO RENT, like so many of the homes for rent in Cooperstown.......YUK!

This was built just for guests like you and is immaculate and will be your very own private retreat when you are here. It is like a hotel but oh so very much better.

Christmas 2007, we purchased this wonderful property from a man who had once owned the New England Patriots. Sitting on 50 wonderful acres, is a lovely house but there was also a beautiful old stone based barn.

The barn was in disrepair and as we felt it would have been a real shame to lose such a wonderful structure. So startin in 2008 and not finishing til Aug of 09, we decided to take almost all of it down and rebuilt it into a new a stunning 4000 sq ft 5 bedroom 4 bathroom residence.

With 5 bedrooms and 4 baths,(full description below) and huge living spaces, we have invested meticulous attention to detail in this property while succeeding in maintaining the integrity of this historical building, and creating a wonderful space for all to enjoy. Some of the original barn exterior wood now adorns the walls of the interior living and family room.

Enter the fabulous glass front doorway to a breathtaking view of the lake and gardens as seen thru the floor to ceiling glass windows directly across on the other side…….quite an entrance.

A balcony framed totally in glass allows the beauty of the land and nature to flow right in.

25 ft high, hand honed beamed ceilings, huge floor to ceiling windows throughout allowing for amazing views of the lake, lush perennial gardens, forests, and wildlife. What more could you want?

The living room faces the lake and features, again, two huge floor to ceiling windows, a gas fireplace with a massive cedar log mantel sofa and chairs, a 50' flat screen TV, wireless internet service and an old sugaring off sled that makes quite a statement as the coffee table for this fabulous area.

Dinning at the 10 ft dining room table, under an old wagon wheel that has old lanterns creatively converted into modern lighting, you will experience a cross view of both sides of the property.

The lake side, the gardens in the morning on the pasture side, the fabulous sunsets at night.

The family room area has an 8 person poker table with lots of room for a second game table, yet be decided on....

A lovely cedar paneled laundry room, HUGE, with a washer, dryer, coat room, wet sink and cupboards completes the house.

Outdoors welcomes you with a 7 acre perennial fringed lake.

The lake is stocked with large and small mouth bass, perch and carp that practically jump on your hook. We have a dock where you can fish from or you can stroll around to the far side and walk the board walk to Meditation Island.......

If you like you can also walk or jog the whole perimeter of the lake on a dirt path. State land boarders our property so hiking and exploring the woods is a must do.

Wildlife abounds, deer, wild turkeys, George the blue Heron, red tailed hawks, ducks and birds galore, so bring those binoculars. Everything to see and enjoy…..nothing here to hurt you.

We guarantee the area has so much to offer you will never be bored.

To book our home we need you to email us your home address and we will discuss sending you out a contract. Your deposit is 50% the weekly rental rate with the balance due 90 days before your vacation date. Pertaining to the Dreams Park season bookings, once you book it is a gauranteed non refundable booking so make sure of your dates.

We have had wonderful guests here wave have appreciated and taken good care of our homes during their stay. We are sure you will be the same.

Thumbs Up for the Lucky Duck!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 19, 2009

We just returned from Cooperstown and Dreamspark, and were very fortunate to stay at the Lucky Duck. A short, beautiful country road drive from Dreamspark and Cooperstown Village, this home had all of the comforts, property, open spaces and views we could ask for. Great for families, friends, and just a fanstastic respite from the ball fields and City life. Very well appointed, and Kate and Mike make sure that we are comfortable and needs are met. Highly recommended!

Blow away with this place

My family rented this house for 3 nights just recently for a family get together..........we knew it looked good on the wev site but WOW we were blown away when we arrived. The owners have done a great job on building this amazing home. We were 6 adults and 3 children and never felt crowed. The place is kept very clean and the choice of furniture is great. You can tell the owner is an artist. We have already starting talking about another stay but as the owner only does 7 night stays in the summer we will planning another September visit.If you are thinking of booking here you wont be disappointed.

Best House, Best Week, Best Time ever

We just got home from Cooperstown and are still talking about what an amazing time we all had that week. Five stars are not enough for this home.
The town is lovely and the Dreams Park is an amazing place but staying at the Lucky Duck ( rented the guest quarters The Masters House as we were a group of 14) was fantastic...........the Property is so beautiful and the accomodations were immaculate and comfortable. It was so much fun spending our day on the go doing all sorts of activities the know that we would then be coming home to the Lucky Duck and Masters for a restful break. Sit on the dock or by the fire pit having a glass of wine while our kids ran freely, played baseball or fished. was heaven. It was nice to know the owners were on site and ready to help if we needed them for anything but as the week could not have gone better we never even saw them. Thanks Kate and Mike and we well see you again in 2015 when our oldest boy is ready for Cooperstown.

Had a GREAT week at the Lucky Duck

We had a group of 3 families for a week of baseball at the Lucky Duck. The house is wonderful and very clean. The grounds and view of the lake are beautiful. The kids really enjoyed fishing in the lake and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. I truly felt like I was on vacation. I would certainly recommend the Lucky Duck and would stay there again if in the area.
