About William Miller

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.

William Miller purchased this lodge in 2000

Why William Miller chose Central Leatherstocking

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.

What makes this lodge unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is truly a retreat: a place to relax, unwind, enjoy the quiet and the beauty of the surroundings. The log home is awesome: instantly welcoming, beautifully decorated and equipped, yet warm and inviting; we felt very comfortable and very much at home. The attention to detail is evident throughout. There is plenty of room for a large group; if you travel with kids, the lower level would be a perfect area for them to entertain themselves. I particularly enjoyed the fireplace on the main level (with a fire all set and ready to be lit when we arrived!). This is an ideal, all-season location, within minutes to Cooperstown and all that it offers, or to the other little villages in the area. Summer sports are right out the door (the lake is gorgeous), several museums and other historic sites are found right around the lake, and the state park is within walking distance. What I personally enjoyed most was the amazing sense of peacefulness I experienced from the moment I arrived.

The most amazing experience, the loveliest owners, a lake like Glimmerglass:

  • 5 of 5

We rented 3 properties from Coopersown luxury for our wedding weekend and i'll share my email to the owners Bill and Liz after our stay to help summarize how we felt if you're considering renting one of their properties:

Thanks soooooo much for letting us stay at you're homes. We had the most amazing weekend & of course, all the guests were blown away by the houses. You're properties are beautiful beyond words and your hospitality and accessibility has been incredibly impeccable and helpful. We really hope to continue to have this relationship with you and rent again next year.

We loved swimming in the clearest lake we've ever seen & playing on the lake trampoline. As you know, the treehouse isn't the easiest place to find so thank you for taking the time to answer our guests calls late at night when they got turned around. This has been the most amazing weekend of our lives

Thank you to you and your staff for making it happen.

Owner's Response: Shanna, Thanks so much for your email. Cooperstown is fast becoming a true wedding destination. We often hear from our guests the same comments about Otsego Lake...so clean, so ... uncrowded!

We home to welcome you back when you'll have time to relax and explore our region. Once again, BIG congrats:)

It was an amazing weekend spent in the treehouse, lots of room and a great view. A few of us early birds enjoyed our coffee on the deck with a view of the lake as the mist came off and showed its wonderful view. We got to see a little downtown before the ceremony. We had one full day (due to gorgeous wedding)that we spent family time in the water and on the dock, already talking about returning.

Stunning home and property, a true LUXURY Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this gorgeous, peaceful, and centrally located log cabin home while visiting Cooperstown Dreams Park for my son's baseball team. Everything stated about this home, the amenities, the location, the pictures, is completely accurate. The owner is extremely courteous and truly cares about his guests experience. When renting a home it makes all the difference in the world to deal with an owner who makes himself 100% accessible to reach, and truly cares about his guest's vacation experience. Thanks Bill!

This property is 5 stars all the way

This house is something to be seen and experienced!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Treehouse and the Birdnest for a family weekend. This is the third time we have rented and will rent again and again. My family absolutely loves our vacationing at the Treehouse. The decor and lake views are breathtaking. The house speaks for itself and the pictures don't do it justice. I highly recommend staying and you will be more than happy. Looking forward to our next visit.

Owner's Response: Liz and I are so grateful that so many guests choose our home as their vacation destination. So its doubly rewarding when visitors return for a second or third vacation! We love spending time at the lake ourselves and are really happy to share the home with families who get the same appreciation from spending time in the country and at the lake!! See you soon!
