"This charming cottage was perfect for our family and another family in Cooperstown for the tournament. It's a little further away than some of the other homes for rent for this purpose but by far was the best. All other players' families agreed. Situated on a golf course, the cottage (very large and roomy) is nearby the lake and the view from the property is gorgeous. Wildlife abounds (dear, fox, chipmunks galore) and the night sky exquisite. There is ample room for everyone and you'll feel like you really got away! This is a MUST STAY!"

Many positives to this estate, beautiful with some work to be done
"We pulled up to the estate and were pleasantly surprised by the overall appearance. The scenery is stunning. Located on a 140+ acre working farm, the place can't be faulted for natural beauty. Greg the host is very kind and hospitable. The house itself is very spacious with three large bedrooms and three full baths. The pond up the hill was a welcome respite after a full day of baseball. We were playing at Cooperstown Dreams Park and unfortunately, we would have liked to be a little bit closer to the games. It was about a 25 minute drive from the property, making it difficult to quickly run back to the house between games. However, when we were at the house we did enjoy our time there.
We have stayed at many self catering properties and the one thing I will say is that most of them are solely for rental. Know that at this one, the owner does keep a lot of personal items. A lot of people may be able to overlook this, but we were just not used to this and it gives the appearance that he lives there (at least part of the time). Also, while we were staying there, several workers did come and go and while not overly obtrusive, it was unexpected, especially for my father who was trying to nap one day.
The stair case is a bit more ladder like so for anyone with mobility issues, just know that it is an old farmhouse and staircases were different back then.
Overall, we did enjoy the peaceful outdoor spaces including the front and side patios, grilling on the BBQ, and spending quality time as a family outdoors and unplugged. As Greg will tell you, some of it is still a work in progress, and I can imagine it will really be beautiful when it is all done."

"Truly a perfect place to stay for myself and my two small children. Very clean and owner was kindly attentive to any of our needs. The sandy shallow beach was perfect for my kids to play and swim. And being walking distance to Verona Beach Park to play on playground was a huge bonus. The home had everything we needed which made traveling from FL so much easier with two little ones. Looking forward to staying here again."

"This place is over the top. Its setting is spectacular. Its grounds are conducive to family games or quiet reading places. Its interior spaces are well planned and spacious. And the lakefront offered waterfront frolics for both kids and adults. There were 11 of us, grandparents, parents and children and were never crowded in the main house. We rented the floating trampoline which was used 6 of the 7 days. The fire pit was fun at night, providing a perfect location for multi-generational camaraderie. The property's proximity to Glimmerglass State Park enabled us to walk or jog on a level surface. We even paddled a canoe and kayak from the dock to the beach at the state park. Cooperstown is a lovely village to visit during the summer. We hope to return."
