Cooperstown cottage description

(Please Note: From 6-5-15 thru 9-3-15 the cottage is ONLY available in conjunction with the main house).

Ready for a weekend getaway? Time to reconnect with your mate? Or, maybe the kids are ready to be introduced to The Home of Baseball... Cooperstown, NY.

The Bird's Nest is just the place to call home for a night, or a long weekend! Located on The Treehouse property (vrbo.com/206104), The Bird's Nest is private and detached from the main house and is self-contained.



Massive, hand-peeled logs provide the back drop for our luxury, carriage house apartment. Private and quiet and oh, so special. Wainscoted, cathedral ceilings throughout the cottage, skylights, tall windows and French doors combine to create a rustic and warm ambiance.

Pine floors are radiant heated during the cooler months. Room air conditioning and ceiling fans provide comfort during the hot days.

The Bird's Nest provides outstanding accommodations for up to 4 guests. The bedroom, with pocket doors off of the main room, has a pair of comfy twin beds with hand made quilts. A French door opens onto a private deck with woodland views.

A pillow-top queen bed is set in the main room in front of a pair of French doors leading to a private deck. Take in sweeping views of the property and lake from bed!

Relax, read and play board games in the main room sitting area.

The kitchen and dining area, with tall view windows, is complete and ready for your enjoyment; refrigerator/freezer, oven/stove and dishwasher.

Even the full bath, with tub/shower, has cathedral ceilings!

2 flat screen televisions, a pair of kayaks, great lake front access... come and experience this very quiet and special retreat!
