Looking for the perfect lake front home? A relaxing and quiet hideaway? Great swimming and fishing and boating right from your own dock?
As a builder/developer I own several premium lodges right on Otsego Lake including our 5 bedroom listed below; The Treehouse. We would be happy to provide you with further details and pictures of this home as well as our 3 and 4 bedroom lodges at
'ArrowHead Pointe on Otsego Lake', and our 4 bedroom home, 'LakePointe' which features the most extraordinary lake frontage.
All of our homes have unique features... several have 40 foot tall trees inside of them, one has a private elevator, lake front fire pits, a heated swimming pool. And all of them have several things in common;
exceptionally well appointed, elegantly-rustic comfy interiors, spectacular water front or expansive private locations with sensational views. And all of them include canoes and/or kayaks as well as docks for your own boat or a rental boat.
Please give me a call or email with any questions you might have regarding Cooperstown. My family loves Cooperstown and the lake and we enjoy helping others get the most from their own 'Cooperstown experience'. Tel: 908 304 4666

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: Our home was custom designed and handcrafted in British Columbia by Treehouse Log Homes in 2000. After the logs arrived on site it was re-erected using a crane and then all of the finishing and detail work was done by local craftsmen. The property was once part of a childrens camp from the 1940's and is mostly wooded and very private. Our goal during the construction and furnishing phase was to create a home that is rustic, yet exceedingly comfortable. This is a magical location in which to celebrate life with family and friends, to experience lake front living and to enjoy the peace and solitude of a secluded, yet convenient setting.
Why the Owner Chose Cooperstown, NY, USA:
Otsego Lake is 9 miles long and very much under-utilized. Having grown up on the lake, when the opportunity came along to purchase vacant land we jumped at the chance because so much of the shoreline is forever protected there simply are very few parcels available.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Regardless of the season, The Treehouse provides for a Great Escape. During the winter when the snow blankets the land and the ice on the lake is 18' think, the fireplace adds to a warm and comfy environment. Summer days are spent canoeing, sailing, fishing or power boating on a lake that at times is so uncrowded it feels like your own! And in the fall, the thickly wooded hillsides surrounding the lake turn bright with color and is a great time to hike the trails.
