Property description

Quick! NOW ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS FOR fall of 2016. As of September 16 4 weeks are already booked.

Why on earth would you want to stay in a hotel when you can live in your own charming, historic home during your travel? Never stand on line waiting for a bathroom with 3 at Tuscarora.

If interested in holding a wedding please tell us upon your initial inquiry.

Elegant charm that makes you never want to leave the property but only a short drive to adventure on Otsego Lake and historic Cooperstown.

Our 1869 Italianate Victorian (Tuscarora) is a hillside farm of 141 acres. We are 9 miles from Alice Bush Glimmerglass Opera, Otsego Lake and about a 15 minute drive to downtown Cooperstown.

Located 1/2 mile outside Historic Cherry Valley you will enjoy the convenience of the short drive to Cooperstown, the Glimmerglass Opera, 4 different golf courses, antique shops and more. Walk less then 1/2 mile to Rose & Kettle restaurant for your first meal. There is always the possibility you will never want to leave the property.

It was very hard to choose the right pictures of Tuscarora (supplied by previous guests) as they are all so appealing. This beautiful home has been restored over the last 10 years and has often been rented by guests attending the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Glimmerglass Opera or just vacationing in the area from all over the world. The 360 degree view allows you to see the Adirondacks while at the same time being able to look down the valley view known as the historic Lindsey Patent.

Cherry Valley played a significant role in America's western migration so a visit to our village museum is suggested. Be sure to review all of the pictures and I am quite sure you will find nothing else like it to enjoy your visit to the Cooperstown area.

I look forward to speaking with you so I can tell you more about the wonderful vacation you can have at less than 1/3 of the price of staying at a local hotel.

Thank you,

Greg Noonan
Preservationist

When guests first call me I ask them why they are coming. If they say baseball I say do you want to be 100% baseball or also enjoy a vacation. So many come to the area and leave feeling like they need a vacation but not at Tuscarora. Please read the reviews you find on my site. In most cases, Tuscarora has changed the guest who came, they realize we are 100% invested in them having the right location and enjoy themselves while also going to baseball games.

All one needs to do is walk out our door and you are on a journey. If not walking the 141 acres, walk the miles of trails within only a few miles of the farm. Sail on the lake and fish in Otsego lake that might treat you to a big trout or large mouth bass, swim and fish in our pond, bicycle, jog or just read a book and relax.

Even doing nothing is a great activity so, whatever your reason for coming to our area, you will find a Tuscarora vacation is just what the doctor ordered.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Hi, I'm Greg and I own this historic home and part of our local history. I am active in most of the outdoor activities you see listed for my property and have lived in this area since 1954. I own a magazine advertising marketing and conference planning business. I'm a long distance swimmer, pilot and pretty much participate in most sports. Tuscarora keeps me young with the many chores to be done.

Why the Owner Chose Cherry Valley, NY, USA:
Too often we throw out the old for the convenience of the new. Tuscarora was built over 160 years ago and built to last, not torn down or left for ruin. As a child I walked by this farm hundreds of times only to see it fall further and further into disrepair and finely to a point of no return. I can't say for sure what finally pushed me over the edge to buy it but I am glad I did and so are my hundreds of guests. The memories that have been created here would never have happened if it were not rescued. Now this painted lady stands as a monument to the period of history that was so important to our Nations future. The home provides every convenience inside. Heated floors, 3 beautiful bathrooms and nicely appointed antique rooms throughout. Each of the 3 bedrooms has a flat screen TV with DVD, we have wireless throughout the home. Our office area has a computer with printer for printing your plane tickets out. Wedding are gorgeous here. This past summer two were held here and many more will result because of the word being spread. We can supply many pictures but when the guests see it in person they all say the same thing, " it is more beautiful than they imagined.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Historic home with modern conveniences here in beautiful upstate New York. Three couples can enjoy a country holiday only 3 hour drive from Manhattan or Boston. If you are a pilot and own an aircraft and love having your dog with you we are your place. Cooperstown-Westville airport (K23) is an easy drive and we can also also find you indoor or covered hanger for your airplane if desired. Walking on 141 acres of private property or hiking the miles of back roads or trails is a great freedom many places do not offer. Whether sitting on the hillside looking at the views while enjoying your privacy, being able to have your dog walk, run or swim with you are just a few of the benefits. When you look at the views from Tuscarora you will, hopefully, never want to go inside or turn the TV on. There are miles and miles of walking on trails and country roads or you can bicycle any one of the hundred routes right from the house. Wedding can be held at the pond or in the barn. There is an additional fee for renting the barn for the week rental.
