Overview

Central - Leatherstocking Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Oneida Lodge

• 4 Bedrooms - 3.5 Bathrooms

• 6.8 Miles to Cooperstown

• 11 Miles to Dreams Park

• Sleeps 10 Guests in Luxury

• Lake Front – Heated Pool

• Kayaks/Canoe

• Boat/Swim Dock

This historic property is named in honor of the Native American Indians who established a 'lithic workshop' here 3,000 years ago to manufacture projectile points (arrowheads).

ArrowHead Pointe is located on the west side of Otsego Lake, about 7 miles north of Cooperstown. Oneida Lodge North sits less than 200 feet from the lake and has been professionally decorated to provide the most enjoyable lakefront vacation experience in the entire region. Surrounded by massive beams and walls of glass looking out upon the lake, our lodge is a destination unto itself.

The lake-level features two beautifully appointed queen guest suites. Both suites have marble/granite bathrooms with AHP 'Signature' handcrafted cedar and burl pedestal sinks made with clear glass vessels.

This Lower Level is home to the media room with very comfortable furniture (including a queen pull out sofa bed), a full wet bar and large flat screen television. Outside of the French sliders is a 30' x 15' bluestone patio with stone steps and walk to the lake and The Boathouse.

The Main Level is wide open for grand entertaining and 'lake country living' featuring a chef’s dream kitchen, dining room with a 10 foot long redwood slab table, great room, sitting area, wood burning fireplace...all exposed to magnificent views of Otsego Lake through walls of French glass doors leading to a large covered deck.

The focal point of the lodge is the atrium, housing a 42' tall, 245 year-old white pine tree supporting a 3-story open log staircase capped with electronic sky lights.

The upper floor is home to 2 more queen bedrooms...both with covered outdoor balconies with views of the lake. One bedroom features wainscoted 16' tall cathedral ceilings and the other has ceilings that soar 20' high...all with exposed, hand-peeled logs. Both have walk-in closets and both bedrooms have pairs of electronic skylights.

At the edge of the lake is our clubhouse...The Boathouse. This 2 story handcrafted log structure boasts 3 fireplaces, 3 bathrooms and lots of space to relax, read and nap! Just outside is our heated pool, swim beach, lakeside gazebo, kayaks, fishing and private dock for your boat or a rental boat.

The rolling hills provide a perfect backdrop for all types of year round of activities...play golf at one of 3 nearby courses, visit local breweries, a distillery and vineyard. Restaurants, museums, world-renowned Glimmerglass Opera/Festival, and of course...water sports on our crystal clear Otsego Lake.

Autumn turns the hillsides in a spectacular array of color. Enjoy the local festivals or cozy up to a fireplace and enjoy a great book.

Winter is a great season to explore the area...the baseball crowds are gone and Cooperstown returns to its peaceful self...cross country skiing, skating and tubing...even snow shoeing across the frozen lake.

But the BEST time to visit Cooperstown is right now!

Available at additional cost: in-home massage therapy, private chef, daily house cleaning and laundry, chauffeur/boatman for our mahogany vintage Chris Craft and/or performance water-sports boat. Rental boat can be reserved and docked on site ready for your arrival.

A Charm overlooking a Glassy Blue Lake!

  • 5 of 5

I am speechless! Words will not be able to describe the beauty of this property... If you are looking for relaxation, lakeview, deck and private access to the lake, this is the place to be! It even has an outdoor heated pool... Talk about clean, decor and a picturesque view, this is it.

The house has everything! Clothes Washer/Dryer, Dish washer, pots, pans, the works! Very high quality electronics!

You will NEVER have to leave this property!

I was extremly relax that my friends had to push me off the sofa/couch, to go outside and walk around... Hahaha....

Yes, if i had my way, i would have rented the place to myself :) Yes, the house/property is indeed a home-away from home!

Owner's Response: In his Leatherstocking Tales, James Fenimore Cooper referred to Otsego Lake as The Glimmerglass...I like your description better...Glassy Blue Lake!! Our lake at times can be so perfectly flat that it nearly mirrors the sky and surrounding mountains making for surreal photography opportunities. We're so glad you and your friends enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back...thanks for being great guests!

The Perfect Stay with Many Perks

  • 5 of 5

Despite the temperature barely going over 40° all weekend, we had an incredible time at this lodge. After staying at several places on VRBO (some good, some bad), I had to appreciate all the little things included in this house. From providing spices for cooking and a Keurig, to having a neat array of wood in the fireplace ready to go for us (with a starter log). The lodge is simply a perennial pleasure - had it been a bit warmer we'd have swam (though pool was closed, obviously) or even taken out the provided kayaks.

The architecture of the lodge itself is beautiful and unique. From Oneida lodge, it was only a small stroll down to the pier, where there is a majestic gazebo, with benches to look out onto the lake and more. Inside the adjacent boat house is air hockey, foosball, and a few areas to simply lounge. Overall, Arrowhead Pointe is lush with details and quite literally a retreat from the hysteria of every day life. All of us being from NYC & Long Island loved spending the weekend in peaceful splendor w/ amenities.

Liz and Bill Miller are truly class acts with exquisite taste and style. I'm really impressed by the welcoming, serene space they've created on a hill by the lake. Thanks again for everything - cheers!

Owner's Response: Getting together with friends and family is always a fun occasion. Liz and I are fortunate to be able to share our lodge, and to help make the occasion even more memorable. Thanks for all of your compliments...the home is a culmination of much planning and lots of tediously handcrafted details. We welcome you and your group to a return visit any time! Thanks for being great guests!

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The lodge itself was amazing and the location was beautiful. The sun came over the mountains and hit Lake Otsego and came right into the lodge. William was great and gave us tips on where to eat and even called halfway through our stay to check in. It was a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Sunrise over the lake is a beatific way to start the day. And as the sunsets over the hillside, often times the reflected colors on the surface of lake are just as amazing and make for a perfect time to celebrate another great day!

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was such a great experience to stay at Liz and Bill Miller's property. From the moment of contacting them in regards to our stay they were extremely accommodating and had fast responses. While staying there we used an at home masseuse service which was also a great experience. The property was absolutely beautiful from the inside and outside. We look forward to making this place a home away from home! Thank you again Bill and Liz for everything!

Owner's Response: First, Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience. Liz and I are so happy that you enjoyed your time here in Cooperstown. We believe quality customer service contributes just as much to a great stay as does a really nice home, and we truly appreciate your comment in that regard! We look forward to welcoming you back as Preferred Guests in the future! Liz and Bill

Amazing family wedding stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house with my family for my Cooperstown wedding weekend. It was unbelievable, and they all loved it so so much. It is beyond beautiful, and so comfortable. The morning of my wedding I even got to have a short Jacuzzi soak to relax and start my day:) Aside from how blown away we all were by the house, and property (my young niece and nephew enjoyed the pool), an added bonus was that the "getting ready" wedding day photos were stunning - because of the house! This house is huge and had so much space for all of us, even with the hectic elements of the big day. It is a few months later, and I miss this house. A final thought to add is that my whole family is either from Cooperstown or intimately familiar with it, and there is nothing like this house and Bill Miller's other properties (we also rented The Treehouse) anywhere. These are a welcome and amazing addition to the area.

Just AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were all so excited to spend the weekend in Cooperstown. We walked in to the most beautiful place. Not a detail missed. It was beyond spotless and the smell of all the wood was just amazing. We had big plans to tour the town. The house was so homey that we didn't want to leave. From the fire places, views, decks, boat house, gorgeous décor and a fully stocked kitchen, we just can not say enough about how wonderful our stay was. Hoping to make this an annual trip!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your nice comments...your mention of the smell of wood really resonates with me; as you might imagine, during construction of our log homes the aroma of freshly cut wood heavily wafted through the spaces. I was curious how long that scent would last. Although diminished, it is present and to hear how that scent affected you warms my heart!! See you soon!
