Cooperstown chalet description

Your on vacation so why are you waiting a 1/2 hour to use the bathroom? Sure, other places sleeps 9 but have 2 bathrooms, it just doesn't work! We excel at WEEKLY RENTALS! Don't get squeezed into a loud, old rental property when you can be in your own modern lakeside property, have your own kitchen and live on your own schedule with your friends enjoying the same comforts in one of our 4 suites as well. You can do all this at roughly the same or less price of a house.

Sleeping Lion is located on Otsego lake about 8 minutes (6 miles) from downtown Cooperstown. We have private lake frontage with very large dock, more decks than you will know what to do with, wireless, flat screen TV with DVDs. All suites are air conditioned.

You shouldn't have to worry about being hit by a car when you get out of yours. We have private, safe, off street parking. You each have your own, off street, spot. Check out our guest comments below.

Call me to discuss how we can accommodate you.
We've just started accepting bookings for 2013 and many units have been rented these last two weeks. We have folks coming in from CO, TX, NJ, NC and FL so far.

If all of you don't want to be at the ball park or in museums every minute you can take your coffee down to the lake and sit on the deck looking down at the water. Or, go down and sit on the dock, read a book, lay in a lounge chair and get some sun, take the canoe or row boat out or just catch a nice swim.

GUEST COMMENTS

We are from New Jersey and stayed at your Sleeping Lion in and we won the entire tournament.
'Sleeping Lion Rocks'

We really enjoyed this warm, comfortable place. It was truly convenient for myself and the boys to see it all. We especially appreciated the lake in all its splendor. We will spread the word. Thanks for all you did.

Be back soon.
Ken & Gina Sparta , NJ

This is such a great location. The view across the lake in the fall is spectacular, and the rooms were very comfortable. You feel right at home the moment you put your bags down. Will spread the word about this lovely lodge.
Thanks, The Girisallos, Spart, NJ

What a perfect house for several families to share. We enjoyed our week of baseball at the Dreams Park and felt very welcome by the warm hospitality of the many Cooperstown people we met.
Thanks,
Carolyn & Ed

WOW! What fun we had here at the Sleeping Lion. We loved our cozy home away from home. Best of luck with the place.
Thanks for everything!
The McAleer Family

Thank you for having us as your first guest. The Sleeping Lion is a wonderful getaway.
The Cohen family.

We feel privileged to have been the 1st guest in # 4. The view of the lake is fantastic! Sleeping Lion has made our stay in Cooperstown extraordinary!
Thank you, Mike & Kathy and Ray the Virginia Aces.

Thank you for letting us have a great stay here. It has been great. Westminster, Colorado.

Great relaxing place. Beautiful view. Had a nice stay.
The Mays.

Thank you for the great stay at Sleeping Lion. The view is spectacular and peaceful. We hope to visit again soon.
The Johnsons, Glenview, Illinois.

The boys and parents all had a great time, loved your beautiful setting. Watching our kids have so much fun together outside of baseball setting will probably be one of our fondest memories of this trip.
The Mays.

To the Sleeping Lion - We were happy to stay here. This was our 4th trip to Cooperstown and we loved being lakeside. Hope to see you in 2 years.
The Fallons and The Glenview Blaze.

Wow! What fun we had here at the Sleeping Lion. We loved our cozy home away from home. Best of luck with the place.

RENTAL INFORMATION:
We are directly on Otsego Lake with 46 feet of private frontage, a private dock and lots of spots to relax. Our guests have been mesmerized by the view.

Otsego Lake is a natural glacier lake. When you look out over the water at Sleeping Lion Mountain you will find its beauty hard to put into words.

Unit 1 and 2 each have:
A Queen size bed area.
A sitting lounge area to watch the flat screen TV/DVD.
A sun room with twin bed
A private deck overlooking the lake
A kitchenette very adequately equipped to cook a meal
A bathroom

Each unit has at least one queen-size bed, with unit but units 1,2 and 3 have an additional twin in the sunroom. Every unit has lakeside view. Four units have sunrooms looking over the lake.

Cooperstown is only 6 miles away. We are in the heart of antique country so leave plenty of room for what you collect. If golf is your choice we have two golf courses within a 5 minute drive. If fishing, swimming, skiing or just relaxing are on your mind we have that as well. This is a great place to simply sit on the lake, read a book and do nothing else.

Unit #1: Has 10' ceilings with hand carved beams. This unit sleeps three, has a nice kitchen, bathroom, and view of the lake. And last year we refinished the sun room and the private deck overlooking the lake.

Unit #2: Has 10' ceilings with hand carved beams. This unit sleeps three, has a nice kitchen, bathroom, and view of the lake. And last year we refinished the sun room and the private deck overlooking the lake.

Unit #3: Is our biggest suite. It is on the second floor and has a sun room, living room, kitchen, bathroom, a private bedroom with private bath. Enjoy spectacular views from the large deck overlooking the lake.

Unit #4: Is on the second level, has queen-size bed, a kitchenette with dining area located in front overlooking lake, and a nice bathroom. Enjoy your private 200 square foot deck while having full view of the lake.

Our lodge was decorated and renovated throughout 2012. We spared nothing. Tile floors, nice rugs, great kitchenettes, new beds and plenty of pillows. We have an abundance of pictures which you can see on this site.

Our past guests are the people who bring our future guests. Read these thoughtful comments to determine if we are what you are looking for.
Always feel free to call me.
Have a safe trip wherever you go!!!
