Looking for THE ideal Winter or Summer dream vacation home...you've found it!

- 3 BEDROOMS

- 3.5 BATHROOMS

- 7 MILES FROM COOPERSTOWN

- 11 MILES FROM DREAMS PARK

Unlike any other lakefront location, the ArrowHead Pointe enclave of 5 homes provides guests with a true 'lake country living' experience. Located 7 miles north of Cooperstown, New York (often referred to as America’s Most Perfect Village) and its outstanding waterfront location on Otsego Lake, AHP is the perfect location for your vacation.

Showcasing HANDCRAFTED POST AND BEAM CONSTRUCTION imported from British Columbia, the lodges are true works of art, combining massive timbers with the finest of detail.

For the discriminating family seeking an exceptional home with outstanding lakefront amenities, ArrowHead Pointe will exceed your expectations!

Welcome....

“AHP” is a lakeside, 5-unit enclave of luxury handcrafted log post and beam homes. Cayuga Lodge has been PROFESSIONALLY DECORATED to provide the most wonderful accommodation in the Cooperstown area. Surrounded by AUTHENTIC NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN ARTIFACTS and a collection of FINE FOLK ART, your stay at AHP will be the centerpiece of your vacation.

The lake-level features two beautifully appointed guest suites (one with window seat that can easily function as sleeping accommodation for a child), both suites have MARBLE OR GRANITE BATHROOMS with frameless glass showers and AHP 'signature' HANDCRAFTED CEDAR AND BURL pedestal sinks made with clear glass vessels.

This lower level is home to the MEDIA ROOM with all LEATHER FURNITURE (including a queen pull out sofa bed), a FULL WET BAR and large flat screen television hidden behind a beautiful original oil painting. Outside of the french sliders is a 30' x 15' BLUESTONE PATIO with stone steps and walk to the lake and THE BOATHOUSE. The spiral stairs lead from the patio to the main level deck of the condo.

The MAIN LEVEL is wide open for grand entertaining and 'lake country living' featuring a CHEF'S DREAM KITCHEN, dining room with a 12 foot long REDWOOD SLAB TABLE, great room, sitting area, SEVERAL FIREPLACES…all exposed to MAGNIFICENT VIEWS OF OTSEGO LAKE through walls of French glass doors leading to large deck and walkway.

The focal point is the atrium, housing a 42' TALL MAPLE TREE supporting a 3-story open log staircase capped with electronic sky lights. The massive tree was harvested from this property and was lowered into the building before the roof was installed. The tree was then hand-peeled, sanded, polished and oil rubbed to a furniture grade finish.

The master suite with spa bathroom, sitting room with fireplace and the bed chamber with fireplace is sequestered on the third floor and is reached via the staircase or the private three-stop elevator.

The two-story entertainment Boathouse is the hub of lakefront amenities…heated pool, beach, lakeside gazebo, kayaks, fishing, private dock for your boat or a rental boat.

The homes at ArrowHead Pointe are also available for purchase beginning at $1,725,000 (and on a very limited basis 1/4 fractional shares at $450,000).

Spending time at Cayuga Lodge South is a true once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience.

Play your early rounds of golf during the spring season at Otsego Golf Club or The Leatherstocking Golf Course...both built right along the shoreline of Otsego.

Summer time...there is no better place to enjoy lake-country living than on the shore of The Glimmerglass...boating, fishing, kayaking, lazing and floating about, sailing...

When the leaves change color and the scent of burning wood fills the air, its leaf-peeping season... a great time to explore the area without the summer crowds.

Experience Otsego Lake and Cooperstown in the winter...gather round the fireplace, explore the frozen lake, skate, ski and sled.

Available at additional cost: private chef for a special meal, daily house cleaning and laundry, chauffeur/boatman for our mahogany vintage Chris Craft and/or performance water-sports boat. Rental boat can be reserved and docked on site ready for your arrival.

About William Miller

Liz and I have been welcoming guests to our Cooperstown vacation retreats for more than a decade. We believe a well maintained and spotlessly clean home is just a small component of a great vacation experience. Too often, consumers experience the result of lack of focus on the part of service providers...telephone calls go to voicemail... emails go unanswered...questions are unanswered and problems go unresolved.

Our philosophy; Great Vacation Experiences Begin And End With Great Customer Service.

For this reason, we have chosen to limit the number of homes we manage to ensure our ability to provide the best customer service possible. Our goal is to leverage a lifetime of intimate knowledge of the Cooperstown area to enable our guests to experience all that Cooperstown has to offer... we are "locals" providing visitors with inside information to enhance their time in our special region.

We are standing by, ready to help you. Call us...908-304-4666 or email us at Bill@CooperstownLuxury.com

Safe travels, Liz and Bill

William Miller purchased this lodge in 2005

Why William Miller chose Central Leatherstocking

Having spent my childhood years on Otsego Lake, I was able to enjoy all kinds of water activities like boating and skiing. When my children were born, my wife and I decided to return to Cooperstown and introduce our children to the same types of outdoor activities. They now love spending time with friends on the water, or even just sitting on the dock or around the fireplace; all are special ways of spending quality time.

What makes this lodge unique

Nothing is better than the early evening light as it casts its glow on the distant mountains and plays its magic with ever-changing colors of the lake. Sipping a favorite drink on the dock or simply floating in a kayak and taking in the evening solitude can be a perfect ending to every day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for opening up your "condo" to our family and friends. I put quotes around condo because this is really a "great lodge", similar to what you would find in the Adirondack's or out West. We could not have dreamed of a more comfortable home or a better location on such a fantastic lake! The pictures truly do not do justice to the fine details of the home or the beautiful landscaping or the views of the lake. Count us in for next summer, and the summer after that, and after that...

Sweepstakes Stay

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Liz - What an amazing stay we had at your home at Cayuga South Lodge. Although we were only there for a weekend stay, we had a wonderful time. The accommodations were spacious, luxurious and had everything needed to make our stay enjoyable. My husband and I occupied the third floor master suite with its own master bath and fireplace together with its own sitting room with fireplace, while my mother enjoyed a bedroom on the lower level of the home with her own bathroom and sitting room with fireplace. Although we did go into Cooperstown, it was hard not to just stay at the lodge wandering around admiring the craftsmanship and elegance of the house or sitting at one of the two fireplaces on the main floor and relaxing and enjoying the view of the lake. We will definitely be back. Thanks once again.

The home was amazing! Clean, spacious, beautifully decorated. We were very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we were very pleased with our stay. We were greeted by the owner, Bill, who was very friendly and helpful. This home is gorgeous, and we would love to come back. Only reason I gave 4 stars was because for the amount we paid for our rental, I would have hoped the owner would be a bit more lenient with the guest allowances. We would have been happy to sign a waiver or pay an extra deposit in order to entertain more than 4 guests. Also, I would have appreciated a few basic amenities such as extra toilet paper, paper towels, basic spices, etc.

Owner's Response: Hi Carolyn and thanks so much for your kind words! We know it's a huge temptation to share the home and all of its amenities with other families staying in the region. However, visitor limits are set to ensure an enjoyable experience by all guests. And to avoid any disappointment or surprise about the guest limits, we communicate it as clearly as possible...in our on-line listings, in the descriptions, the lease, in our email informational files and in our reminder files. We look forward to having you back in the future as Preferred Guests! Thanks again for being great guests! Liz and Bill

Beautiful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a great area. Our group ended up spending most of our time in the house, on the lake and in the pool. We could not have had a better time!

memories were made!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful handcrafted home. Visually stunning, well appointed and incredibly clean. We stayed here for our daughter's wedding and felt at home yet pampered like we were on vacation. The sweeping view of being right on the lakes edge was icing on the cake! This property is a must when spending time in Cooperstown.

Best Christmas Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Bill! I just wanted to let you know how much we loved the cabin!!! In person, it took our breath away!!! We had a blast!!! It definitely put us in the Christmas spirit with the snow, the cabin and the lake. Family and friends who saw our pictures are asking about the cabin and want to go there!!!

The details in the design and decorating are incredible!!! You'd only see cabin rentals like these out West. Thanks again for answering our questions and getting back to us quickly regarding the Wi-Fi. Have a Happy New Year!!!

Beautiful luxurious house

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in september in Cayuga (the name of the house) on Otsega lake. It's a beautiful large home, with 3 floors. The children and their friends were on the ground floor where they had their own bedrooms overlooking the lake and each their own bathrooms. The 1st floor was the communal area with a large, well equipped kitchen and two seating areas, each with a fireplace, and dining table. A deck allows one to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful view of the lake. The 2nd floor holds the master bedroom with master bath, a separate sitting area, again with fireplace, and a couple of small decks/balconies. There is a lift for those who are not able to use the stairs (great for luggage!). From the house it's a 2 minute walk to the dock where there are 4 kayaks to use. The lake is glorious. There is also a small pool with comfortable chairs. We had a great time. The week flew by. Cooperstown is a fun town with lots of things to do and the surrounding area is hilly and beautiful. We swam, kayaked, hiked, visited a couple of museums, walked through the town, toured the countryside. It's a wonderful place to spend your vacation and Cayuga is a super comfortable house from where to explore the area.

Owner's Response: Many people find Autumn to be the perfect time to visit Cooperstown...the crowds have left the museums and restaurants and the lake is so uncrowded it feels like your own private lake. Yet the weather is warm enough to fully enjoy the region and the water. We look forward to welcoming you back as Preferred Guests!
