About Issy Durkin

This house was built by the owners- a career builder/designer and a local teacher. This house is the result of years of experience building custom homes; specializing in historic timber frames.

Issy Durkin purchased this house in 2013

Why Issy Durkin chose New York

-One of the reasons we chose to build on this site is because it is very close to the water - and we've also dreamed of owning a waterfront property. Most houses on the lake are 2 or 3 or more stories above the water level with numerous flights of stair-we're just 20 feet from the water.

-Goodyear Lake appealed to us because it's picturesque 344 acre lake, not extremely active (there is no public launch, and is very quiet and relaxing.

-We choose the Cooperstown area-not only because of its location to the baseball hall of fame-but because of the many other features it has to offer. Within a short distance there are several shops, restaurants, parks, and hiking/outdoor recreation facilities.

What makes this house unique

-50 feet of picturesque waterfront includes a generous area for outdoor seating and grill

Swimming and fishing available from the dock

-Canoe available for use

Not just a Baseball vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous home while our son played baseball at All-Star Village, about a 15-20 min drive away. My three other children would say that they had more fun than my baseball player staying in this outstanding location! We fished, canoed, rented paddle-boards, swam, and enjoyed the wonderful amenities of this fabulous home. The best part - we get to return in two years for another son's baseball experience!

Beautiful House

We loved the beautiful furnishers & the location on the lake. Canoeing on the lake was fun for everyone. Thank you for such a beautiful house for us to stay in. It was a pleasure to stay here. Thank you, The Lenape Valley Tomahawks :)

l have stayed at many Home Away properties across the country on various vacations. This property is exceptional. The booking was easy, the house is stunningly beautiful and artistic and the location was excellent for our time in Cooperstown.

Beautiful lake house, ideal for a large family

  • 4 of 5

My family came to watch my son play baseball at Cooperstown All Star Village. We had 7 people staying at the lake house, and it was the perfect size for us. It was a newer home, constructed by the owner with reclaimed barn wood that gave a rustic/western appearance. Yet that property had lots of modern conveniences: a Viking gas range in the kitchen, gas grill on the deck, and new refrigerator, washer and dryer, and dishwasher. The beds are were very comfortable, and the view of the lake peaceful and soothing. There were a few things missing (life jackets for the canoe, light bulbs that had burned out, weak wifi) yet the owner fixed them immediately. I would happily stay here again, and recommend other large families do the same. It was a short drive to CASV or Cooperstown Dreams Park, but totally worth it!

Beautiful home. Worked well for All Star Village. However, Cooperstown not a bad drive.

Nice but needs a few updates

  • 3 of 5

Shared this home with another family. The bed my husband and I slept in was very uncomfortable and loud. We would wake up with every turn. The window units were also loud. Only the bedrooms have A/C units. The main area of the house does not have A/C at all. That part of the house could use a portable room unit. The bathrooms were very nice and kitchen was nice as well. I really liked the washer/dryer. They are newer units and washed and dried very quickly. The house is located about a 20 minute drive from All Star Village.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feed back. We strive to make our guest experience excellent. We have implemented your suggestions by replacing the bed and have installed A/C through the entire house.
