About the Property

Chalet, 7 Bedrooms + 4 Sunrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps10) more if for family reunion

We still have some great suites available for the summer of 2017. As you prepare to bring your family to Cooperstown, whether for baseball, a family vacation or Opera, we should be a top choice for your lodging.

Hundreds of families have chosen the Sleeping Lion On The Lake. We are a lakeside lodge with 4 individual suites. Conveniently located 9 minute drive to Cooperstown and about 15 minute ride to Cooperstown Dreams Park. Also, just 1.5 miles up the road is the Glimmerglass Festival. We have 4 individual suites and depending on your sleeping needs you can rent all four at a discounted rate or just one. Rates vary between our suites
Suite 4 $975.00 sleeps two
Suite 3 $1,450.00 sleeps five
Suite 1 and 2 $1,250.00 sleeps 3

As you prepare to travel to Cooperstown, possibly bring your family for the baseball experience, make the Sleeping Lion your choice of lodging like hundreds of other families.

You're on vacation so why wait better than a 1/2 hour to use the bathroom? Why be crammed into a house that is shared with 10 others when you can all still be together but each have your own private space for the same or less money. Why not wake up and enjoy your first cup of coffee on the deck overlooking the lake.

Sure, other places sleep 10, 12 or more but have 2 bathrooms, it just doesn't work! We excel at vacations and have remarkable competitive WEEKLY RENTALS! Don't get squeezed into a loud, old rental property or expensive hotel 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 9 minutes (6 miles) from downtown Cooperstown. We have private lake frontage with a large dock and more decks than you will know what to do with. Enjoy the freedom of wireless, watch your flat screen TV with DVDs and the air conditioned comfort while on your vacation.

You shouldn't have to worry about traffic when you get out of your car so we have private, safe, off street parking. You each have your own, off street, parking spot. Check out our guest comments below.

Call me to discuss how we can accommodate you.
32 families have already reserved their suites. We have folks coming in from CO, TX, NJ, NC and FL, CA, ME, NJ, MI, MA and the list is growing.

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 over the lake spotting the bird life at the water. Walk down and sit on the dock with your feet in the water while reading your favorite book, lay in a lounge chair and get some sun or catch a nice swim.

GUEST COMMENTS

We are from New Jersey and stayed at your Sleeping Lion and we won the entire tournament.
'Sleeping Lion Rocks'

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.

Ken & Gina Sparta , NJ

This is such a great location. The view across the lake, spring, summer and fall are 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.
Thanks,
Carolyn & Ed

WOW! What fun we had here at the Sleeping Lion. We loved our cozy home away from home. Best of luck with the place.
Thanks for everything!

Thank you for the great stay at Sleeping Lion. The view is spectacular and peaceful. We hope to visit again soon.
The Johnsons, Glenview, Illinois.

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.
The Mays.

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.

RENTAL INFORMATION:
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
A bathroom

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.

Unit #3: Is our biggest suite. It is on the second floor and has a sun room, living room, kitchen, bathroom, a private bedroom with private bath. Enjoy spectacular views from the large deck overlooking the lake.

Unit #4: Is on the second level, has queen-size bed, a kitchenette with dining area located in front overlooking lake, and a nice bathroom. Enjoy your private 200 square foot deck while having full view of 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.

Our past guests are the people who bring our future guests. Read these thoughtful comments to determine if we are what you are looking for.
Always feel free to call me.
Have a safe trip wherever you go!!!

Car: Recommended

Sleeping Lion is a 9 minute 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 a 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 from your deck off of your sunroom.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: I'm 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 spend my business day working with car manufactures and dealers to help improve their relationships with customers. I've traveled to many countries in Europe, South America 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. In February of 2017 I spent a month in Costa Rica. Since our guests have so many interests I often ask them to join in on some of the sports we 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 experience our previous guests have.

Why Cooperstown, NY, USA:
You are in vacation so you need to enjoy it. Hundreds of families have enjoyed a week long vacation at The Sleeping Lion On The Lake. 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:
Live on Lake Private Suite Boating and swimming out your front door. Easy drive to Glimmerglass Festival 5 minutes Easy drive to Dreams Park 15 minutes Easy drive to Cooperstown 10 minutes You can swim in the morning, play golf in the afternoon and bike in the evening.
