  • Cabin of Inspiration

    "We are a family that loves our leisure time and we are always looking for an inspiring environment to spend that time. The Cayuga Cabin south was perfect! My husband, our 11 year old twins and my in-laws were in awe of this beautiful cabin, both indoors and outdoors. The attention to detail was much apprecciated, from radiant heated floors, endless space to the lovely decor. I personally, enjoyed the full, top of the line, kitchen. Our kids loved making s'mores in the large fireplace (one of 4). The bedrooms were quiet on the lake and very comfortable. We spent time at the large wooden dining table eating and playing board games. We used the downstairs living room for watching movies and relaxing by the fire. The kids loved walking down to the boathouse to play air hockey and fooseball. The views outside were breathing, and not just because it was 17 degrees in winter. We kept saying "Imagine this place in the summer or fall". I know we will be coming back! I would recommend this cabin for families and for a long girls weekend. It was truly inspiring!"

  • Best VRBO Home Around

    "Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights again. This was our 2 year in a row renting this house. The house was clean and vary warm and lots to do. We love coming here, the property has lots to do and if you love to see and hear the animals then this is the house for you. Its good for family's to, lots of games and a swimming pound. Mindy was awesome again. So much stuff in the house to use and you don't have to worry about bring certain things. The farm house was just right. Me and my wife want to thank Mindy for letting us rent and we will be back next year..."

  • Another Fabulous Stay

    "Another fabulous stay. This makes 5 times for my wife and I.... and every time we return it is like coming home. As we sat by the warm fire and radiant heat, we hardly noticed the snow and -27 wind chills outside. Arrowhead Pointe always has a way making us forget the stresses of life and remember what truly matters. Our visits are always special. This place is special. A reminder to take time for each other. To laugh, to love and to be grateful for our lives. Just something Oneida and Cayuga helps us rediscover each year. Our wish is that everyone can stay and experience these magnificent lodges like we do...with an open heart, a child like curiosity and a deep respect for the land that was immortalized to create them. Our sincere gratitude to Bill and his wife for their generosity and for sharing this treasure again with us. See you next year....we can't wait."

Central Leatherstocking Travel Tips

Visitors to Leatherstocking

Leatherstocking offers a unique kind of vacation. Be prepared to be transported back in time and experience century-old hospitality as you visit museums, historic and cultural sites, and explore caves and areas of scenic natural beauty. Baseball fans from all over the states stay at Leatherstocking resorts simply to visit the legendary baseball hall of fame. It's a fun destination for the whole family where exhibits and excursions are creative and entertaining.

What to see and do in Leatherstocking

The Howe Caverns are one of the area's great attractions. With a vast network of underground limestone caves, traditional and adventure tours operate on a daily basis. Venturing down into the depths of the earth, you can see impressive stalactites and stalagmites, take a boat excursion on an underground lake, and hear your voice echo off the walls. The caverns are 165 feet below ground and believed to have been formed more than six million years ago. The geological and archeological histories are fascinating, and the caves also have strong links to the Civil War. Visiting the Howe Caverns is a must.

A fantastic way to appreciate the scenic beauty of Leatherstocking is to enjoy a steam train excursion. There are many short day excursions linking towns such as Utica, Lake Placid, and Saranac Lake. As you click-clack through the Adirondacks, you'll pass over bridges, clear rivers and streams, all the while being able to see the splendor of the Adirondack National Park and its wildlife. Special occasion trains such as the Polar Express operate near Christmastime where you can get to ride with Santa to the North Pole.

Binghamton is an interesting city where you will find many antique stores to browse. The city is also known as the "carousel capital of the world" because of its rare and impressive collection of antique Herschell carousels. The carousels were donated to the city by a wealthy benefactor and many still operate today. Binghamton is a lively city with plenty of arts and entertainment. The theaters have regular opera and orchestral performances. The North East Classic Car Museum features the largest known collection of Franklin luxury cars. For the kids, two places well worth visiting are the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park and The Discovery Center which is an interactive museum specifically for young children.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame can be found in Cooperstown, located near the shores of Lake Otsego. Baseball fans come to appreciate the tributes to heroes of the game. Known as the Village of Museums, Cooperstown is also home to the National Soccer Hall of Fame, the Fenimore Art Museum and the Farmers Museum. The Farmers Museum is a working village that provides a glimpse into the 19th-century rural lifestyle.

A great way to experience the natural beauty of Leatherstocking is to enjoy a scenic hike or bike ride. For a more leisurely view, take an aerial tour from Cooperstown or an Eerie canal cruise. There are loads of outdoor activities in all seasons and details of routes and trails can be obtained from local tourist sites.

Enjoy leisurely Days at Leatherstocking Vacation Rentals

Because there is so much to see and do in the Leatherstocking area, it's great to have the flexibility of having your own rental home. Equipped with all the home comforts, it's an affordable way to stay and explore the region. Ranging from small cozy cabins to larger lakeside homes, you can stay for a quiet romantic weekend away in the fall or bring the whole family along for fun times in the summer.

Leatherstocking Travel Tips

Many visitors to Leatherstocking cabins drive up from the cities of New York, Boston and Washington. While there is a good public transport system, it's nice to have your own vehicle to get around in. Take along a good map and enjoy your time exploring the backroads. There are loads of photographic opportunities and the area is particularly beautiful when the fall foliage begins to turn.
