We still have some great suites available for the summer and fall of 2018. 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

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.
40 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.
We are from New Jersey and stayed at your Sleeping Lion 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, 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.

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.

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.
