Private, quiet, wooded location, this 12 year old has it all. We are just 7 miles from Cooperstown along the East Lake Road and Glimmerglass State Park is less than a 5 minute walk.
Regardless if you are coming for Dreams Park, The Opera, The Hall of Fame or any of the other local attractions, Anna's Retreat should be YOUR retreat!
Tucked into the wooded hillside overlooking Otsego Lake, this retreat provides plenty of interior space for gathering with friends and spacious, well appointed bedrooms when you need some quiet time.
New for 2015...a fantastic new patio featuring a glorious new sunken hot tub and wonderful wood burning fire place...wow!
Our home features a great wide open floor plan with the kitchen opening to the dining area and great room. Adjacent to the dining area is a screen porch perfect for evening cocktails. The great room features 20' cathedral ceilings and twin French doors leading to the massive wrap-around deck. Flooded with sunshine during the day, this is the spot to watch awesome sunsets in the evening.
All bedrooms feature very comfy bedding and the entire home is spotlessly clean. The kitchen is fully stocked for food preparation.
The lower level family room is perfect for the kids...large flat screen and fooseball table and an adjoining bunk room with new, private, full bathroom.
French doors open onto the new, very private bluestone patio. Roast marshmallows over the wood burning fireplace and then retreat to the sunken hot tub large enough for 7 guests!
Anna's Retreat is one of the most desirable vacation homes in the region...modern construction with central air conditioning, quietly and privately located on the undeveloped East side of the lake and yet just a few minutes to the state park.
We found the house to be just as described. The deck and stone patio provided great outdoor space and the hot tub was a big hit with our teen! We used the house for our daughter's wedding weekend and so will always have very fond memories of Anna's Retreat.
The owner couldn't have been more responsive to our questions and needs - would rent from him again in a heartbeat!
Perfect for relaxation. Clean with excellent views, comfortable beds, and lots of privacy. Sun room was perfect for morning coffee and meditation. Lower patio with fireplace and hot tub was perfect for nighttime fun. Wild turkeys, deer and hummingbirds during the day and a brilliant starlight sky at night. Fossils galore in the area. We went for baseball but found a nature treasure.
Anna's Retreat is a beautiful home 7 miles from Cooperstown. We stayed there while our son played at Dreams Park. The drive to and from the fields took about 25 minutes but was worth it for the beautiful accommodations and all the amenities and the scenery including Otsego Lake. It helped make a week of baseball feel like a real vacation. A couple of shout outs:
- The woodwork in the home was beautiful
- Beds were very comfortable and plenty of linens were included
- Kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of utensils, pots, pans- even a waffle maker
- The side porch was perfect for a quiet breakfast- several times spent watching deer next to the house
- The outdoor Jacuzzi was a winner- great after lots of walking and fun way to start and end the day
- Lower level bunk beds were a hit with our two ball players post tournament as was the foosball table
- Lower level bathroom is delightful- dual shower heads including rainfall- I snuck down there vs. using master shower when I could
- Outdoor fire pit was amazing- plenty of smore's and beverages for all
- The sunsets were ridiculous
- Owner was extremely responsive with our minor needs including light bulbs for ceiling fixtures and questions about Internet
If you find yourself in Cooperstown and want to make the most of your stay, I highly recommend you stay at Anna's Retreat.
We stayed in this home for my son's visit to Cooperstown Dream Park. It was about a 22 minute drive to the Dream Park and about a 10 minute drive to the village of Cooperstown.
The upstairs shower could use some updating wish it was like the downstairs basement shower. The screened porch and patio where great to relax after a long day at the fields.
Overall a nice home and plenty of room. Just beware if you wash any white clothes the water leaves orange stains on the garments.
You can not see the lake from the home during the summer months but I'm sure during the winter with all the leaves off the trees it would be a nice view.
We went to the state park and it was very nice and the lake was beautiful. It is a 7.00 charge to get into the park. There is a beach with lifeguards for swimming and plenty of places for picnics.
This home is super private and quite the climb as your driving up the private drive to get to it. Plenty of privacy!!
We rented this house for our son's 12u Coopertown tournament. We had two families there and everyone loved it. We used the outdoor fireplace at night while some were in the hot tub. It is a 15 minute drive to dream park which was easy. The team also through a team party at Glimmerglass State Park beach which was right down the road. We also had paddleboards and kayaks dropped off before we arrived. Great log vacation home!!!
This house was perfect for our Cooperstown trip. Good location, close to town, Glimmerglass State Park etc.. Lots of space inside, game room downstairs is a plus and outdoor area had lots of room for all to sit and drink coffee or make smores in the fireplace. The kitchen could use a few more pots, a good bigger frying pan would be great. The beds are comfortable. The upstairs bathroom shower could use a little TLC but the big bottom level bathroom is beautiful. Looks newly update. There is no real lake view. The small part you could have seen from the top balcony is not there, due to trees growing, but the wildlife makes up for that and you can see the Hyde Hall Mansion which is lovely. The owner and property manager is easy to work with and goes the extra mile to help you out with anything.
So many things to see and do...
Anna's Retreat is a perfect 'base of operations' for your small family or larger gathering of friends. With accommodations for up to 10 people, there is plenty of common and private spaces.
Nestled in the woods, hike the property and explore the stream. Walk to Glimmerglass State Park where there is sand volleyball, basketball courts, swimming beach, hiking and running trails, pavilion with snack bar, etc. Explore the nearby hamlet of Cherry Valley with its great collection of restaurants. Cooperstown is just 7 miles south along the edge of the lake...what a great commute into town!!
