The latest Hotel was famous for the Sulfur Baths that Richfield Springs became famous for in the 1800's into the mid 1900's. The area is now the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame and a mecca for baseballs fans from all over the world.
The Cooperstown BaseBall Hotel , known in the glory days of Richfield Springs as the Terrace Hotel and Sulfur Bath Hotel, is the last standing hotel and bath house complex that marked the end of the most important era in the village's history . At the height of the Springs popularity, the village had numerous hotels and bath houses and was a popular summer destination. The Era of the Springs served such guests as inventor Thomas Edison, Governor and President Franklin Roosevelt, Cyrus McCormick of McCormick Harvester, Gen. George McCellan, writer Sarah Orne Jewitt, and Oscar Wilde and many others in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
Now it will cater to baseball families providing lodging for large groups. We are conveniently located only three miles from Cooperstown Diamond Dreams, fifteen miles from Dreams Park and twenty five miles from Cooperstown All Star Village. This complex of buildings has a beautiful setting with expansive lawns and a 200 foot front porch on the main building for guests to mingle or entertain. A large fully equipped 30x40 foot kitchen that once served the spa guests is now available for teams to prepare their own meals. The large dining room is so massive many people could enjoy home cooked meals or a catered party.

This Cooperstown BaseBall Hotel is a Spectacular Architectural Structure of an era gone by when thousands of people came here for sulfur baths and was built specifically as a Jewish Hotel. The Jewish Synagogue was next door and the Hotel was there to house the guests of the sulfur spa. Today it is used to house the many baseball or softball families that come for the many baseball parks in the area of Cooperstown.
While this property is not on the lake, it enjoys all of the amenities of staying on the lake as well as being at the hub of activity, only a block from downtown within walking distance of antique stores,pharmacy,ice cream parlors,library,tennis court,and large park with a farmers market.The cooking facility is thirty by forty forty feet and has all the equipment needed to prepare meals on a large scale just as it did for the guests of the hotel during the early 1900's.This feature alone will save hundreds of dollars in eating out. The camaraderie of living together in such an open dining and lobby area of the 1895 era will leave a lasting memory of days gone by when people came strictly for the sulfur baths.
The Lake House Hotel can be rented from 25-30 guests up to 70 guests.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would definitley stay there again. Our grandson was playing ball in Cooperstown that whole week, and even tbough we could have stayed at Best Western with the other families we chose to stay somewhere that was 1/2 the price of what they all were paying. The two girls that greeted us when we got there were absolutleyy lovely and hard workers in making sure you had everything you needed and that you were comfortable. Everything in the room was spotless, clean and comfortable. We just loved all the antiques and the quaint look about the whole place..
We've been coming through Richfield Springs and visiting the Lake House for many years. From time-to-time, we stop for a drink or two at the tavern and then enjoy the grounds, and lunch or dine there, but we've never stayed there. We finally decided to, and we're so glad we did. What a wonderful experience -it is a warm and friendly atmosphere - we so much enjoyed our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful - without exception, treating us as if we were their special guests - at least, that's how they made us feel. Do yourself a favor like we did - we only stayed one night, but having done so, we now can't wait to come back and do it again - and we will!
One of my best friends chose the Lake House for her wedding and reception. We had a great time. It is a beautiful venue, the setting on the lake was outstanding, there was good food and it was the best to be all together for two days to celebrate this occasion with her. It is a mix of old and new- the building is historic-it has been there since the 1800's and has a charm unlike places that are newer. The sunset was so romantic and in the morning the mist was coming off the lake. I don't want to go back to work! I know she wanted something unique and I am so glad my boyfriend and I got to share it with her.
the lakehouse is way too far from the field. it is 40 minutes round trip. plus, they did not change our sheets on our bed the entire week that we were there or gave us new towels. save money on gas and stay somewhere closer. you will be happy you did.
We picked this lodge without any personal recommendations so we knew we were taking a chance. Boy, were we pleasantly suprised. The place was rustic and beautiful. The rooms were nicely sized relatively new and very clean. The view of lake from the back of the lodge is stunningly beautiful. We just relaxed right away. The staff did whatever they could to make our stay enjoyable. I'm trying to think of a reason to go back. Maybe just for the lodge!
We took the family, including our teenage children, to visit Cooperstown and we stayed for seven nights at the Lake House Hotel. It is situated on one end of Candarago Lake in the village of Richfield Springs and has a delightful lawn and a wonderful porch. On a nice summer evening you can sit on a rocker on the porch and enjoy a drink while the kids play games on the lawn. Accommodations are nicely appointed and well maintained. The staff was professional and courteous. Our children particularly enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the main lodge on the lake. The surrounding neighborhood is very nice to walk through, especially in the early morning and the evenings. I would recommend the Lake House Hotel for couples and families alike.
