SPRING Season: welcome the warming months in the mountains! Pull out the fishing pole, motorcycle, and hiking boots. Check out the apple blossoms and first crops coming out of the fields.
SUMMER Season: the farmers markets are in full swing. There's a main Street fair or county festival going on every weekend. The kayakers are on the rivers and lakes. The cyclists are on the roads. The horses are saddled up. The golfers are yelling 'fore!'
FALL Season: the evenings are cooler, the campfires are blazing and the harvest is coming off the farm. Mountain bike from the top of the ski runs, or just ride the lift and enjoy the fall foliage. Foliage runs mid September through mid Oct.
WINTER Season: the leaves are down and the mountains are still the best place to be. Skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country, tubing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing can keep you busy. Come March, watch local farmers tap trees and make maple syrup gold.

"We are having a great time! Your house is gorgeous and the pictures in homeAway don't do it justice. ....it is much more beautiful in reality , we will surely be back someday when visiting the USA again".
My friends and I had a great time here! This was our second time coming (with a different group). Unfortunately, both times it rained during our stay but we did manage to get a boat ride in this time! We love that he has a row boat and 2 kayaks! Last time we went in the fall for the beautiful fall foliage and this time were able to enjoy the lush trees. It's such a beautiful and quiet property. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, etc. The dining table was perfect for our group of 7 people. Cabin was clean and very comfortable. Ivan was very flexible with the check-in/check-out time, which was very helpful!
Lovely property, a little snow on the ground made this cabin a lovely place to relax and ring in the new year. We were able to keep the fire going, make a fire outside in the fire pit and even relax in the hammock and by the water. House was well kept with a full kitchen and ample seating. Look forward to our next stay here! Thanks John.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed a pleasant stay at Green Acres. The house is clean, beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything needed for cooking meals. We enjoyed use of the paddle boat for long rides on the water, especially at night under the stars. The lake is clean and very refreshing for swimming. We used the grill, outdoor dining area and the back porch for morning coffee. Overall, a nice property for couples or small families. My only minor complaint is that there is a busy road across the lake that creates road noise during the day. At night, however, traffic subsides and it's peaceful. Thanks Ivan!
I stayed with my wife and two other moms while our kids were playing in baseball tournament at the Cooperstown Dreams Park. While the location isn't ideal for Cooperstown, everything else about the cabin was fantastic. It was great to come back to the cabin and relax on the porch, lay in the hammock, or sit down by the lake with your favorite beverage. The kids got to enjoy the lake for an afternoon before we left.
Be aware that cell phone coverage was a little spotty and the wifi wasn't up an running yet.
This property is exactly as described. It is immaculately kept and the best one around the lake. Ivan is so helpful and friendly. He gave tons of helpful information about the area and things to do and explore. The beds are really comfy!!
My friends and I enjoyed a few nights stay relaxing, boating and swimming in the lake. We grilled on the BBQ and enjoyed our meals in a private outdoor space.
The dairy farm nearby is so simple and friendly. We went for a short tour of where the cheese is made and the owner give a generous cheese tasting experience. Needless to say, we brought home a lot of cheese. In town is John's Tavern, a local bar with pool table, Foosball, and a jukebox. Not far from there is the Belvedere Inn. They have a big bar, dance area and DJ until 1am, if you are in the mood for a little country fun.
Thank you, Ivan, for an incredible stay. I cannot wait to go back!
My girlfriend and I stayed at Green Acres over a weekend in June and had an amazing time! Check-in was a very easy process and the property manager was in constant communication and very flexible with arrival and departure times. The cottage sits on a secluded wooded lot with fantastic views and access to the lake. Inside the owner has given each of the rooms unique character and provided everything you could possibly need for your vacation. Our favorite highlights were the outdoor dining area, and use of the boats on the lake. I'd definitely recommend booking this property and hope to be back in the near future!!!!
