Our cottage is on Otsego Lake, which covers approximately 1,972 acres. It is about one mile wide and 6 miles long. We are located in the Southern-most bay in the Lake, on the West side. The location is very nice because we are sheltered from the prevailing North Westerly winds. As a result, the bay is very calm, being a favorite place for water skiers. We have a 100 foot dock. The water at the end of the dock is approximately 5 - 6 feet deep. You can easily tie up a boat to the dock since it is sheltered from most winds and the bay is not wavy. We keep our boat and wave runner at the end of the dock on shore stations. Renters do not have access to these. We do allow renters to use a 14 foot aluminum row boat. Due to lumbering in the 1800's, there is silt in Otsego Lake, which is stirred up by boat traffic in summer....moreless
