An Exceptional Property!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a June Friday to Sunday at the Bird's Nest, which is the smaller house just next to the main house. At the end of a road through the woods, the privacy you have at this property is fantastic. The private lakefront pier, which included kayaks, a canoe, is simply superb. The lake is clear and great to swim in, and is quite large, with tremendous views. We had breakfast on the deck overlooking the lake each morning, with birds chirping and a gentle breeze in the trees--spectacular. The Bird's Nest itself is a well designed and well kept small house which we greatly enjoyed. Good air conditioning unit! The landscaping is thoughtful and nicely done. Bill the owner was easily reachable, friendly and very helpful. We are fairly picky about accommodations, generally staying in high end, well reviewed B&B's or resorts, and this experience ranked up there with anything in recent memory. The Bird's Nest is a real standout for its value. Cooperstown itself is a gem of a town--well manicured with plenty to do in the nearby surroundings. This house is just a few minutes drive from it all, but sitting on the private pier on the lake, you feel miles away due to the unusually beautiful setting and privacy. A real "wow" experience.

Owner's Response: Hotel and restaurant reviews are so critical to today's consumers.

Same holds true for vacation rental homes. Yet, the large rental brokers provide NONE!

Liz and I, along with our staff, work hard to deliver exceptional service and accommodations. And when one of guests takes the time to submit something like..."A real "wow" experience!"...it makes the hard work well worth the effort!

Book your "wow experience" today!!

A best kept secret: Cooperstown in the off season

  • 5 of 5
Our kids were delighted to explore the snow covered wooded area on the property and we had many deer sightings during our stay. The home was cozy and comfortable, with stunning views and heated floors. Exactly as pictured. Homeowners were a delight to deal with, providing us with restaurant and shopping suggestions in advance of our trip. Cooperstown is very quiet in the off-season, so if you want to check out the baseball hall of fame without the long lines then plan a road trip for winter or early spring. The house was perfectly situated to town and close to the farmers museum, which has a fun maple syrup festival in March complete with a pancake breakfast. Ommegang Brewery is also nearby, with wonderful food and tastings, and the tour was great for the kids. We hope to return again soon!

Owner's Response: The Bird's Nest is the perfect accommodation for a romantic getaway or a fun escape for a family of 4. During the winter and early spring, this is Liz's and my favorite property to stay in when we are in Cooperstown. The cottage's massive beams and comfy furnishings, along with those great views create an ambiance that can't be beat! The old adage, "Great things come in small packages" has never been more true! Call us today and plan your visit!

Beautiful Cabin with Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5
The listing description was absolutely accurate regarding the property and amenities. The pictures on the website were beautiful and when we arrived at the cabin we were not disappointed! My husband and I loved this spacious and beautiful cabin! There were wonderful lake and mountain views from the living area windows and from the spacious outdoor deck. The cabin itself was extremely neat, clean, well taken care off, and beautifully designed. The basement was spacious and serves as a fabulous game room! I would recommend this cabin to business associates, friends, and relatives! The owner was extrememly helpful and seems to have impeccable taste.
We enjoyed hiking in Glimmerglass State Park...lake water is crystal clear! We went to the center of town and enjoyed The Fenimore Cooper Art Museum and just taking in all the beautiful homes, parks, and lake views.
We hope we can visit again! :)

Owner's Response: Our lake is quite literally crystal clear! Perfect for swimming, fishing, boating and kayaking during the warmer months. And during winter when the lake freezes over, it becomes a huge ice skating rink. Get a bon fire blazing in the fire pit and bring along your hot chocolate, wine, (or what have you) and explore the lake like most people never will!

Restful, wonderful experience !

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at the Bird's Nest! Rested up our first day, had a warming fire in the fire pit. Next day spent at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Two beautiful sunsets during our short stay. Highly recommend this gorgeous cottage on Otsego Lake. Owner quite helpful in assuring all was taken care of for our stay. Thank you !
