Eagles amazing family vacation home!

When the sunset casts a calm glow over the countryside, don't be surprised to see a Bald Eagle break from it's circling pattern overhead and swoop down across our ponds to snatch a tasty fish for dinner!

This is the type of quiet country location in which the Eagle's Nest is located. Just minutes from Cooperstown and The Dreams Park, yet so private and undeveloped that one of the most sensitive predators, the Bald Eagle, calls this area home!

Experience all that our 50 acres of lush property has to offer...wide open, dramatic valley views, mountain vistas, unimaginably beautiful sunsets, thickly wooded areas, ponds for kayaking and fishing and exploring, hiking, wildlife and bird viewing, walking trails, and more! Woods, meadows, streams… kids love exploring this land!

The home features a main floor plan ideal for family vacationing...a soaring great room (with gas pot belly stove) that is open to a dining area and an outstanding kitchen with breakfast bar with seating for 4. A sitting room filled with sunlight is off of the kitchen and is the perfect spot for morning coffee or evening drinks as the sunsets over the distant valley (the couch opens into a sleeper sofa). A full bathroom services the main floor.

The very large master bedroom with private full bathroom, featuring a jetted soaking tub, is conveniently located on the main floor and the French doors open onto a private, covered deck).

A large porch and deck surround the main floor providing great spaces for exterior gatherings.

Up the exposed staircase to the second floor are two queen bedrooms (both with outstanding views) and really cool loft space with flat screen... perfect for the kids. A full bathroom is located here as well.

A second private stairway leads to the "bunk room" with 4 very comfortable twin beds. The room is super private, 40 feet long, cathedral ceiling, 6 sky lights, large flat screen TV, seating area. French doors open to a large covered deck with awesome views and sunsets.

The attached 2 car garage has been converted into a game room with fooseball table, arts and crafts table table and ping pong table!

Eagles Lookout is the ideal country hideaway; convenient to the area's attractions including Cooperstown and the ball fields, and yet privately located to ensure a quiet and relaxing country ambiance. The kids will love the opportunity to explore the property and mom and dad can enjoy the solitude and beauty of the area.

The pond is stocked with Rainbow trout and has two kayaks to fish from.

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

Property & home were fantastic and would certainly return

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay in Hartwick for Memorial Day weekend. Arrived with several friends for the weekend and couldn’t be more thrilled with our stay. The home and property are as advertised and even better in person. Cooperstown was only a short 15 minute scenic drive away. There’s also a grocery store right down the road for everything you might need during your stay if you were to forget something. Would recommend this place with confidence to anyone interested. Everything was clean and prepared for us and Bill was available when needed. Would like to say thank you very much for having us.

The pond is stocked!

Great house surrounded by beautiful land

  • 5 of 5

We came here with a group of 12 guys for our buddy's bachelor's party. He wanted to find a place to relax, spend time with his closest friends and visit the Baseball Hall of Fame. The Eagle's Lookout was the perfect place for our group. The house had a nice layout, it was comfortable and conveniently located just 10-15 minutes away from Cooperstown. Bill was also a pleasure to work with and communication with him was seamless. We will definitely stay here again if we find ourselves back in Cooperstown.

Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really nothing to complain about here! We arrived to a beautiful warm, wood cabin-style home, with a nice layout for large groups, awesome winter views (snow storms approaching in distance) and best of all a great hill for sledding in the backyard. Kids loved it! Home is all wood and done right, nothing cheap here. Radiant heat left no cold spots anywhere, not even the garage where the games room is. Have to emphasize warmth of the house because we were there during the Arctic blast that covered most of the country. Temps were -8F for the highs! Our group was 2 families of 8, and although we opted for the "Lockout Room", it wasn't really necessary. The house is still large without the Lockout Room. Bill was quick to respond to any of our questions. Ping Pong supplies need a bit of replenishing, but I'm sure Bill will be on it before the next rental! The town and Food shopping is an easy 10 minutes away, even with the snow. Have to mention, Bill was nice enough to allow us a "late checkout" being that our exit date fell on New Years Day, at no extra charge! Thanks again Bill! This house was perfect for our Winter Getaway from NYC. I highly recommend for groups and families!

Owner's Response: Happy New Year again! Frank, thank you for taking the time to provide your review of Eagles Lookout. It was indeed the coldest weather we’ve had for the past couple of years and we’re glad some of your group were brave enough to ride the sledding hill! Thank you for being terrific guests and we hope you’ll visit again as Preferred Guests! All the best, Liz and Bill

A "Lincoln Log" dream come true.

  • 4 of 5

Eagles Lookout offers some of the most spectacular views around. We loved staying in what the kids called the "Lincoln Log" cabin. The kids enjoyed the amenities and took full advantage of the playroom in the garage, kayaks, and spent hours fishing and exploring.

We had a few minor maintenance issues, and within hours Bill sent a handyman to address the issues. What wonderful service!

If you are looking for a private cabin in the woods, this place is for you!

We will treasure our memories and time spent at Eagles Lookout!

Mountian Log Home Eagles Lookout

  • 5 of 5

The location of this home is perfect for Cooperstown baseball and just about any other activity. It is an easy 4-5 mile drive to down town and to Dreams Park. The house was also only a 5 mile drive to Ommegang Brewery.

The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. Each room had a great view. The house was equipped with everything we needed utensil wise. The Ping Pong and Foosball table saw plenty of action.

The views were awesome and deer and other animals were often seen in the morning and at sunset. The fishing pond also produced Rainbow Trout, Largemouth Bass and Blue Gills. The kayaks were thoroughly used as well even though you can walk around the pond.

I do highly recommend this rental.
