Why Pamela Miller, Owner chose Cooperstown
Cooperstown Twin Pines Cottage is a part of the Association of Hyde Bay Colony, located on County Route 31, 7 miles from Cooperstown. It is on the East side of Otsego Lake, where the sunsets are spectacular. This property (12 acres, with 650 feet of waterfront) was developed as "Rathbuns," in the 1920's. The Rathbun family developed this property as a fishing resort, over the years it developed into a family destination. When the Rathbuns decided it was time to retire, one of our realtors suggested looking into an association possibility. That is what we are! The John and I felt we were the luckiest people in the world to own a piece of this fabulous property. Now it is our time to enjoy the lake and share a part with others that want a special family get away. Hyde Bay Association continues these traditions. All of the cottages and homes on the property are individually owned and managed, with reasonable rules & regulations which are included in rental packet. These rules are only put in place for community respect and each family's enjoyment.
What makes this Cottage unique
Hyde Bay Colony's property is bordered by New York State park Glimmerglass. We are in a bay, at the end of Otsego Lake. Our waterfront is private, quiet, and boat friendly. We offer a canoe, two kayaks, life jackets, swimming dock with a float, fishing on the boat dock, sand and toys on he waterfront and a community beach-front fire pit (with firewood provided).

Lovely little cottage.
We had a very nice stay with our 2 boys. The cottage was very clean. Just a short little walk down to the lake dock and beach. The boys had fun swimming and canoeing. Highly recommend.
We really enjoyed our stay in Cooperstown at their lodge. My older son who was not playing baseball thoroughly enjoyed fishing on the piers.
It was a nice getaway.
