This historic property is named in honor of the Native American Indians who established a 'lithic workshop' here 3,000 years ago to manufacture projectile points (arrowheads).

ArrowHead Pointe is located on the west side of Otsego Lake, about 7 miles north of Cooperstown. Oneida Lodge North sits less than 200 feet from the lake and has been professionally decorated to provide the most enjoyable lakefront vacation experience in the entire region. Surrounded by massive beams and walls of glass looking out upon the lake, our lodge is a destination unto itself.

The lake-level features two beautifully appointed queen guest suites. Both suites have marble/granite bathrooms with AHP 'Signature' handcrafted cedar and burl pedestal sinks made with clear glass vessels.

This Lower Level is home to the media room with very comfortable furniture (including a queen pull out sofa bed), a full wet bar and large flat screen television. Outside of the French sliders is a 30' x 15' bluestone patio with stone steps and walk to the lake and The Boathouse.

The Main Level is wide open for grand entertaining and 'lake country living' featuring a chef’s dream kitchen, dining room with a 10 foot long redwood slab table, great room, sitting area, wood burning fireplace...all exposed to magnificent views of Otsego Lake through walls of French glass doors leading to a large covered deck.

The focal point of the lodge is the atrium, housing a 42' tall, 245 year-old white pine tree supporting a 3-story open log staircase capped with electronic sky lights.

The upper floor is home to 2 more queen bedrooms...both with covered outdoor balconies with views of the lake. One bedroom features wainscoted 16' tall cathedral ceilings and the other has ceilings that soar 20' high...all with exposed, hand-peeled logs. Both have walk-in closets and both bedrooms have pairs of electronic skylights.

At the edge of the lake is our clubhouse...The Boathouse. This 2 story handcrafted log structure boasts 3 fireplaces, 3 bathrooms and lots of space to relax, read and nap! Just outside is our heated pool, swim beach, lakeside gazebo, kayaks, fishing and private dock for your boat or a rental boat.

The rolling hills provide a perfect backdrop for all types of year round of golf at one of 3 nearby courses, visit local breweries, a distillery and vineyard. Restaurants, museums, world-renowned Glimmerglass Opera/Festival, and of course...water sports on our crystal clear Otsego Lake.

Autumn turns the hillsides in a spectacular array of color. Enjoy the local festivals or cozy up to a fireplace and enjoy a great book.

Winter is a great season to explore the area...the baseball crowds are gone and Cooperstown returns to its peaceful self...cross country skiing, skating and tubing...even snow shoeing across the frozen lake.

But the BEST time to visit Cooperstown is right now!

Available at additional cost: in-home massage therapy, private chef, 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

Safe travels, Liz and Bill

William Miller purchased this lodge in 2010

Dreams Park Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house with 3 other sets parents who's children were participating in the Cooperstown Dreams Park experience. The house and grounds were beautiful, the kayaks and canoe where very nice additions to the experience; especially since the lake front of this home is very shallow and there was a lot of grass on the bottom of the lake that was freaky for the non-nature lovers. The laundry room, wireless LAN connectivity (cellular service in the area is spotty) and kitchen were very well stocked. It is a very nice place for a family visiting the lake and area. The boat house had lots of games and options. You won't be disappointed.

Concerns I had were with house rules, specifically those built for Cooperstown Dream Park families. Renters are not allowed to have over 10 people stay the night (including ball players) and no more than 4 day guests (including ball players). And, renters will be checked up on. It was uncomfortable and unfamiliar for the professional executives and business owner that made up our group who typically rent this level of the house. Neither the children nor parents could include an adequate number of friends on the experience.

If this is your first time with Cooperstown Dreams Park, there are times your son/daughter’s coach may want to send the team to the parents so they can have breaks and there is a good chance you will have your children out of the barracks Thursday night before the Friday departure.

My suggestion, if you want to be social with other families or with more than 4 ball players while in Cooperstown, look at other listings.

Owner's Response: Hi Donna and friends, we appreciate all feedback from our guests. To clarify your comments; all of our property listings state the maximum number of over night guests and day visitors. And our lease/rental agreement, which you had agreed to, includes the same information... as well as all follow up communications. Our goal is to provide guests with the absolute finest and most enjoyable lake front experience. This simply isn't possible if the property is overpopulated. By stating this info upfront, our guests don't face any surprises when they arrive. There are homes in the area which permit unlimited guests...this is when guests can face real surprises! :) All the best, Liz and Bill

This home is a showstopper and has everything a guest needs for memorable lakeside living!

  • 5 of 5

Best property on the lake! Soothing water features, rustic natural wood paired with top of the line amenities, convent access to lake and use of water toys, gorgeous pool, and the boat house is an unbelievable added bonus you have to see! Fish or swim from the dock. Cook or grill at home or take all your meals at the Blue Mingo (also fabulous and close). Our stay was one we will not soon forget.

Owner's Response: Hey there Martina, Thank you for the glowing review:). We are very happy that your family enjoyed their visit to Ctown and it’s time at the lake! Otsego really is a gem of a lake and having a lakeside pool and custom entertainment boathouse makes it even more unique and enjoyable. Come back this winter as preferred guests and see how spectacular our area looks covered in snow and go hiking on frozen Otsego Lake! Thanks again, Liz and Bill

We had a fabulous vacation at the Uber-Luxe! We came for the Cooperstown tournament, but staying here made for an awesome vacation! The home was beautiful and clean. We enjoyed the pool and the lake views are amazing. We also used the provided canoes and rented a pontoon for a fun afternoon on the water. The owner Bill was great to work with and made sure our stay was perfect. You will not regret your decision to stay here! Jodi

Beautiful house and view!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and just how pictured online. The view was amazing all week! We were in town for a baseball tournament and it was only a 15 minute ride to Cooperstown. So much to do with the pool, game room, kayaking, etc.
