Your on vacation so why are you waiting a 1/2 hour to use the bathroom? Sure, other places sleeps 9 but have 2 bathrooms, it just doesn't work! We excel at WEEKLY RENTALS! Don't get squeezed into a loud, old rental property when you can be in your own modern lakeside property, have your own kitchen and live on your own schedule with your friends enjoying the same comforts in one of our 4 suites as well. You can do all this at roughly the same or less price of a house.
Sleeping Lion is located on Otsego lake about 8 minutes (6 miles) from downtown Cooperstown. We have private lake frontage with very large dock, more decks than you will know what to do with, wireless, flat screen TV with DVDs. All suites are air conditioned.
You shouldn't have to worry about being hit by a car when you get out of yours. We have private, safe, off street parking. You each have your own, off street, spot. Check out our guest comments below.
Call me to discuss how we can accommodate you.
We've just started accepting bookings for 2013 and many units have been rented these last two weeks. We have folks coming in from CO, TX, NJ, NC and FL so far.
If all of you don't want to be at the ball park or in museums every minute you can take your coffee down to the lake and sit on the deck looking down at the water. Or, go down and sit on the dock, read a book, lay in a lounge chair and get some sun, take the canoe or row boat out or just catch a nice swim.
We are from New Jersey and stayed at your Sleeping Lion in and we won the entire tournament.

We really enjoyed this warm, comfortable place. It was truly convenient for myself and the boys to see it all. We especially appreciated the lake in all its splendor. We will spread the word. Thanks for all you did.
This place is cozy and warm. It is a close to perfect as it gets.

This is such a great location. The view across the lake in the fall is spectacular, and the rooms were very comfortable. You feel right at home the moment you put your bags down. Will spread the word about this lovely lodge.
Thanks, The Girisallos, Spart, NJ
What a perfect house for several families to share. We enjoyed our week of baseball at the Dreams Park and felt very welcome by the warm hospitality of the many Cooperstown people we met.

The boys and parents all had a great time, loved your beautiful setting. Watching our kids have so much fun together outside of baseball setting will probably be one of our fondest memories of this trip.
To the Sleeping Lion - We were happy to stay here. This was our 4th trip to Cooperstown and we loved being lakeside. Hope to see you in 2 years.

We are directly on Otsego Lake with 46 feet of private frontage, a private dock and lots of spots to relax. Our guests have been mesmerized by the view.
Otsego Lake is a natural glacier lake. When you look out over the water at Sleeping Lion Mountain you will find its beauty hard to put into words.
Unit 1 and 2 each have:
A Queen size bed area.
A sitting lounge area to watch the flat screen TV/DVD.
A sun room with twin bed
A private deck overlooking the lake
A kitchenette very adequately equipped to cook a meal
Each unit has at least one queen-size bed, with unit but units 1,2 and 3 have an additional twin in the sunroom. Every unit has lakeside view. Four units have sunrooms looking over the lake.
Cooperstown is only 6 miles away. We are in the heart of antique country so leave plenty of room for what you collect. If golf is your choice we have two golf courses within a 5 minute drive. If fishing, swimming, skiing or just relaxing are on your mind we have that as well. This is a great place to simply sit on the lake, read a book and do nothing else.
Unit #1: Has 10' ceilings with hand carved beams. This unit sleeps three, has a nice kitchen, bathroom, and view of the lake. And last year we refinished the sun room and the private deck overlooking the lake.
Unit #2: Has 10' ceilings with hand carved beams. This unit sleeps three, has a nice kitchen, bathroom, and view of the lake. And last year we refinished the sun room and the private deck overlooking the lake.

Our lodge was decorated and renovated throughout 2012. We spared nothing. Tile floors, nice rugs, great kitchenettes, new beds and plenty of pillows. We have an abundance of pictures which you can see on this site.

Sleeping Lion is an easy drive to Cooperstown but far enough away to miss the noise and crowds of village. We are 1 mile south of Glimmerglass Opera and if you are lucky enough to be here the 3rd week of the summer months you can join me at our fly-in pancake breakfast 3rd Saturday of each month.
While you may be here for baseball tournament, museums, wedding, family visit or vacation, The Sleeping Lion offers relaxation for all. Regardless what your interests are you're only minutes away from a nice swim, round of golf, tennis, a nice country bicycle ride or lounge reading a book overlooking the water.
Year Purchased: 2006
About: I'm self classified as a spontaneous adventurer. Pretty much no sport I won't try but most of the time I'm either biking, swimming, playing tennis or working on the properties I own. I spend my business day working with car manufactures and dealers to help inprove their relationships with customers. I've traveled to many countries in Europe and most states in the USA. Last spring I traveled 6000 miles on a new Harley I bought at a charity auction in San Francisco. Since our gusset have so many interests I often ask them to join in on some of the sports I play, and yes, they are usually better than I am. Since this is your vacation I like to talk with the people looking at the Sleeping Lion to make sure this is the right place for you. often i have 5 or more conversations before we confirm a reservation. Since I've had 100% satisfaction we can be pretty sure you will enjoy the same enjoyment.
Why Richfield Springs, NY, USA:
Hundreds of families have enjoyed a week long vacation here. Save money on dining by using your kitchen. Private decks on lake. I also own VRBO 330704 and often groups rent both properties. So when you are trying to figure out where to stay I suggest you look very carefully at what you want for your week vacation stay. If you don't want water but do want to be in the think of downtown traffic then probably should stain in town. I you like waking up on the water, catching a morning swim and eating breakfast on the dock, the Sleeping Lion is your place.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
You can live on the lake and still be close to Cooperstown. Swim in the morning, play golf in the afternoon and bike in the evening.
