If you are involved with Baseball Camps Dream Parks etc we are about 20 minutes away. We are 6.3 miles from the town center of Cooperstown which is about 5 miles North of Dreams Park. It takes about 20 minutes to go from Baseball Parks to our cottage. There is very little traffic on our roads and you do not have to drive down the main street in Cooperstown to get to the baseball parks.
The cottage is a place for folks who enjoy the country and the lake. If your children are in the baseball camps then you can spend quality time on the lake while they are enjoying the competition. The cottage is a testament to the craftsmanship of an earlier time. It has real wood floors, screened in porch and a beautiful view of the lake below.
