"We were at the Sylvan Beach House for a first time ever, four-generational vacation, and from my 84-year-old mother down to my three toddler grandchildren, we all loved it. Our only complaint would be the week flew by way too quickly! The house, the deck, the beach - all gorgeous. The house is well-appointed and well kept. We liked how the kitchen and living room are one large room, allowing us to be together but still have plenty of room. The wall that faces the lake is almost entirely glass, providing an incredible view from inside the house. The first couple days we were there were rainy, but even those days were enjoyable, watching the rain (and an intense thunder storm) over the lake. Having very young children with us, I would offer the caveat that the house is not designed with little ones in mind. We expected that, came prepared, and set about baby-proofing as soon as we arrived. The kids loved playing on the beach, and several of us had fun in the kayaks. Carl was always quick to respond to any questions we had, both before we went and while we were there. The area was quiet, the sunsets breathtaking. This was a very long overdue, much needed vacation, and we are grateful to have been able to spend time together at such a nice place. :-)"

Great stay for baseball families in Cooperstown Dreams Park
"This house has charm and everything you need for a great stay while watching your son play at Dreams Park in Cooperstown. A quick 10 minute drive and you're in baseball heaven. Our home away from home for the week boasted enough room and bedrooms for 3 adult couples and our two kids. The beds were comfortable and the two bathrooms were great for the number of people. Having a washer and dryer was a huge bonus and the yard was spacious with room for wiffle ball game and catching our fair share of lightning bugs. We had a great BBQ, complete with a fire in the fire pit. The kitchen made it possible to not require eating out all the time and had all the gadgets you needed.
Would recommend this to anyone. Joe was very helpful in getting us going and Ilan very helpful in answering questions prior to arrival. Thanks for a perfect week!"

"This was the perfect home base for us (so to speak) for my player's grandmother and I to enjoy the Cooperstown experience. Less than a mile from the park, it was easy to come home between games to cool off and have some lunch. The house was clean and well furnished with baseball memorabilia and condiments in the kitchen. Just a wonderful and peaceful place to relax together, and the owner Darlene is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!"

"We stayed at the house for a Cooperstown baseball tournament. It is a perfect location for those playing at Dreams Park. It was great place to stay to unwind from many games but close enough to Cooperstown to enjoy all that it has to offer. The lake was beautiful. Our non baseball kids enjoyed the kayaks and trampolines. The house was very clean and the three bathroom were a plus. I would have given it five stars but the internet is not very good. At this price point, it should be better. If we did not have a personal hotspots, we would have been in trouble for those that still have to work."
