  • Five Star Hotel Quality

    "My husband and I just had a delightful long President's day weekend at this apt. We can't say enough about it. From the minute we arrived the doorman helped us with luggage and gave us our keys. The apt. opens up to a lovely grand foyer that opens to each room. There is light everywhere as this spacious apt. has three exposures with lots of windows in every room including the bathroom and eat in kitchen (beautiful views too) . The apt. was immaculate, the decor is contemporary and sophisticated. Everything is of the highest quality. The bedding was of a 5 star hotel quality right down to the Louis Vuitton decorative throw pillows, a first for me! As for the area, you are literally in the center of everything you need and lots of transportation options, And you're in the lovely and quiet west village area for strolling, shopping and dining. Don't miss a stay here. I'm glad we didn't!"

  • Lovely, charming place, highly recommended

    "Stayed a week with my family and friends in this lovely little home. We spent most of our time sitting in the grass, cooking, or in the pool, and we couldn't have been happier. The place is tidy but not fancy, comfortable beds, we would have stayed another month if we could have. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful. It's a great biking area, a nearby and very inexpensive yoga studio, a food coop."

  • Wonderful setting and location

    "We needed to be in Cooperstown for a family wedding and thought it would be much more fun to rent a house and stay as a family rather than in hotel rooms. This was the perfect house! It was spotless and well appointed. There was plenty of room to spread out and the game room in the basement was a huge hit with the men especially. The rooms are comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed for a couple of meals. The pool looked great so maybe we could go back when it's swimming weather. An excellent choice and a lovely area."

  • Fantastic Studio Apartment!

    "My husband and I just spent 5 nights here and had a wonderful time. Tim is the perfect host, very responsive and attentive and at the same time, not at all intrusive. The photos are accurate and the apartment nicely decorated and very comfortable. A/C works great, firm mattress on the bed, cozy couch, and really good water pressure in the shower. Suggestions would be to add a couple of ice trays (unless we just overlooked them) and maybe some new towels. I'd love to keep this place a secret but if you're thinking of booking it, don't hesitate...you won't be disappointed! We had so much fun and want to thank you again, Tim. Jeff & Rita D."

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.
