1 Phinney Creek @ 42 North provides gracious accommodations for enjoying the Cooperstown area in supreme comfort on a short or longer term basis. 42 North is a luxury rental property comprised of a main log house and a log-style loft apartment set on a gentle hillside with panoramic mountain views. The large front lawn and paved drive/parking are all the two units share.
Upon entering through the private entrance, you will be surprised at the volume of living space 1 Phinney Creek provides in it's carefully designed and masterfully finished 1000 square feet. Vaulted 10 foot ceilings are only the beginning of surprises this 3 year old masterpiece affords its guests. Skylights in the main living area illuminate the sheer volume of cherry floored living and dining space while a wall of windows and patio door beckon the eye toward a large, private deck with views and access to wooded hillsides. This is unless your eye has been drawn by 25 square foot window framing views of Panther Mountain.
The custom kitchen is fully equipped and comes complete with high end cherry cabinets, Corian countertops, glass tile backsplash and all stainless appliances, including a wine refrigerator. A large granite center island provides ample work space while a separate pantry provides an unexpectedly large storage space separate from the main living area. An antique dining table comfortably seats 4 and living room furniture that seats 8 (and sleeps 2) are centered on a 50” flat screen TV and a large propane fireplace insert. The antique mantel and mirror and bluestone hearth are a tasteful contrast to the new and modern feel of the space.
The bedroom features a queen-size mattress, a large closet with storage system, and beautiful dark wood furnishings. The bathroom sports black granite flooring, a granite topped vanity, and tub/shower and all Kohler fixtures. A laundry closet provides additional storage and the premium Samsung laundry machines feature steam settings - wrinkle free clothes and warm towels are readily had!
An automatic whole house propane generator ensures weather will not adversely affect your ability to enjoy this unique space. A Kinetico water system provides softened, iron-free water for bathing, laundry and drinking. The fireplace keeps the loft very comfortable in the cooler months and air conditioning keeps the space comfortable in the summer months. In season, a gas grill and patio furniture are provided on the large deck for guests' enjoyment. The loft is situated above a heated 3-car garage one space of which may be available with longer term stays.
A native of Ohio, I have lived in the Cooperstown area since 2009 and currently reside in the Village of Cooperstown.
Tom Rusk purchased this apartment in 2009
This property was purchased for the adventure of log home living when I relocated to Central New York for work. Having lived in cities and visited family in rural areas, I was up for the adventure. That path has now included completely renovating the original main home (42 North), adding the garage and apartment (1 Phinney Creek@ 42 North) and continuing to tend the property, now for the use of guests. The property was simply too unique to sell when my wife and I moved into the Village of Cooperstown to occupy another adventure and project house - this time an 1885 Victorian. We are happy to be stewards of both properties and share 42 North with others.
42 North is conveniently located 12-15 minutes outside the Village of Cooperstown but with very easy access to area amenities. The nearest gas stations are about 4 miles away in either direction and the nearest groceries about 15 minutes away in either direction. Larger shopping centers are 35 minutes to the south and 45 minutes to the north.
In summer, 42 North is just far enough removed from area baseball tournament camps to be quiet and enjoyable yet convenient for families attending these camps.
The property is well maintained, clean and spacious. The decor is a great mix of modern and traditional pieces with beautiful hardwood floors. We loved the full kitchen and the grocery store is a short drive away. Much better than a hotel for half the price!
We recently spent three nights in Tom's delightful apartment near Cooperstown and we enjoyed it very much. The apartment is elegant, welcoming and spacious; the kitchen is excellent; and the furniture--especially the bed and the two couches--is extremely comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing there in the evenings, cooking and reading (there is also a good TV, though we didn't try it). Tom was very responsive by email before our visit, answering a variety of questions; he also met us at the apartment shortly after our arrival to show us how everything worked. We enjoyed our interactions with him very much.
The apartment is on a country road and is very quiet, but it's easy to get to Cooperstown. It was our first visit to the area and we particularly enjoyed the Fenimore Art Museum and Glimmerglass State Park, both of which are on Lake Otsego. Since we visited in September, we could get fresh cider and cider doughnuts; the Fly Creek Cider Mill is probably the best known in the area but we preferred the quieter Dyn's Cider Mill, which was less than 10 minutes from the apartment.
Thanks, Tom, for a wonderful stay! We look forward to returning.
Nice alternative to all the old properties in the area needing serious updating. Modern, clean and comfortable, tastefully decorated. Off a quiet road, deck backs up to a nice forest.
We enjoyed our visit to Cooperstown and this apartment was perfect for myself, my husband and our 2 kids. It was about a 15 minutes drive to Cooperstown dream park and/or restaurants in town. Tom was very helpful and made himself accessible.
We just finished our stay and still feel the comfort. Every detail has been taken care of even nature co operated for us watching the deer in the meadow with our morning coffee to the glass of wine on the deck at the end of our day. Cooperstown is much more than a baseball town just like this home away is almost better than home. We have never rested better in any property and we have used many.
Thanks Tom you helped make a great memory.
We stayed at Tom's Condo near Cooperstown for 2 nights in the middle of May (13-15) 2016. The loft/condo is outstanding and very comfortable with excellent kitchen and living amenities. It was very much in the country with not much traffic on the nearby road and neighbors who were quite a distance away. The drive to Cooperstown was only about 10-15 minutes. The deck looked outstanding but the presence of lots of bugs/nats kept us from enjoying it much. Tom was very flexible and a pleasure to work with surrounding arrival times etc. This place is quite the gem just a short distance from Cooperstown.
