Welcome Home!!! Paradise Valley is a home away from home that you will want to return to year after year. Our 5 bedroom vacation home is located in the town of Otsego just a few short miles from the Village of Cooperstown, New York. Our custom built home is less than a 10 minute drive to the world famous Baseball Hall of Fame as well as the Cooperstown Dreams Park. The home is just over 2 years old and was designed and constructed by the owner to exceed the expectations of our guests. The home offers an open floor plan for entertaining, a beautiful and well-appointed kitchen, ample comfy seating, flat screen televisions, free internet/WiFi, central air conditioning, and a private heated pool.
The property consists of over 50 acres of beautiful terrain. It includes natural wetlands and flat lands as well as rolling hills. The property provides a scenic walk path that is groomed and maintained that allows our guests to fully enjoy the natural beauty that the area has to offer. The Cooperstown area offers an abundance of wildlife and natural beauty and our property is perfectly situated to allow you to fully enjoy it all without stepping foot off the property. Do not be surprised to see bald eagles, deer, turkeys, geese, porcupines and other wildlife while you roam the grounds. You are welcome to take a walk or enjoy a complimentary ride around the property on the owners 4 passenger all-terrain vehicle. This ride will take you across the flats, down to the swamp, across a walk path that separates to 2 natural ponds and up the side of the rolling hills. Be prepared for a ride of life time. When you reach the top, you will be able to enjoy the scenic view of the valley below. If you decide to walk, be sure to bring your fishing poles.
Paradise Valley is set back off of the road and is the perfect place for the kids to explore and run free. The kids will have a wonderful time running and playing in the huge yard that is large enough for a baseball game and designed with a basketball court. This elegant vacation home has an outdoor fire pit where you can relax and enjoy the evening sunset while watching the children play. If you decide to visit during the fall or winter you will be able to enjoy the colors of the season, or bring your skis and enjoy a relaxing cross country adventure. This property allows you to enjoy the beauty, the solitude and the splendor of nature, throughout all seasons of the year.
For a unique experience, please contact us to reserve a time for a guided boat tours of the beautiful scenic Otsego Lake. Learn about the history of our Village while relaxing on a Pontoon Boat. (Additional charges apply).

Would stay elsewhere
We rented in week 12 of the Cooperstown Dreams Park tournament, and I supposed in retrospect we should have known that the house would've seen 11 weeks of "abuse." Two walls were hastily spackled and looked terrible. Quite a bit of the home looked like it was hastily reconstructed and very poorly done. The biggest issue we had was that the water was a murky brown. Forget about drinking it, most of us were afraid to shower in it. Calls to the landlord were generally unanswered, and did nothing about any of the issues we had.
I had seen a number of reviews about the landlord being difficult to work with, but figured most renters were just whining. Not the case. I would not rent from Chris again. *As per a few other reviews, only got my damage waiver back when I reached out to find out where it was...
I sincerely apologize for any convenience you may have experienced. Due to the weather this season, the water from the well ran cloudy for a few weeks. We have since resolved the problem and added additional filtration systems to our water supply. It was not a situation I could get corrected during your stay as I had to arrange for service and order equipment. I did respond to your calls, was just unable to solve the issue during your stay. The water was safe and is tested every year. It was safe for showers as well, it was just a little cloudy. Thank you for your review.
Great location, nice house. Beds a tad uncomfortable but overall a good choice.
Owner is friendly and responsive, but didn't pay his internet bill so no wifi the last day.
I'm sure it was a mixup, so I would rent from him again for the Dreams Park tournament. Halfway between the HOF and the park - 5 min drive to both.
Thank you for your review, I appreciate it. The internet bill was paid, it was an equipment failure on the part of the provider. I look forward to you staying with us again.
Looks Can Be Deceiving
The photos of this house are beautiful and the space is wonderful, but it is very poor construction. The hard wood floors in the kitchen are bubbling making it a tripping hazard. The ceiling in the kitchen leaks from the upstairs bathroom. By the end of our 3 day rental, the water was yellow - disgusting. Again, location was great to Cooperstown, but getting back to the house was an issue since the address the owner provides takes you to the wrong house?! He needs to give out the correct address. We were there for a wedding and brought our young kids who were so excited to swim in the heated pool - well we turned it on and two days later the temperature went from 63 to 70 degrees - in two days!!! Not truly a heated pool. Also, beds are extremely uncomfortable and towels provided were old and need to be replaced - bring your own towels. There was no shade in one of the rooms and spider webs in all rooms.
Overall, the place needs a major upgrade! And needs to be better maintained. A great location and a lot of space, if you don't mind yellow water, wrong address, missing shades and very uncomfortable beds!
Irresponsible & suspected fraud owner
The house itself has no problem. But our group has a very bad experience with the owner. On the date we supposed to travel on Nov 24th, the owner claimed that he cancelled my reservation by mistake and requested me to "re-book" the trip again. Ended up he double charged. I asked for the refund almost everyday, he said he has trouble with the site, and said he will do the refund, but never tell me when, even I asked everyday. I read a previous review for this listing, another person also has a problem with the refund, and it took more than a month to get the money back. Same issue happened to me. That makes our group has a very bad experience.
Great house in perfect location
We stayed here during my son's Cooperstown trip. The house was just as noted in the details and Chris is always available by text. (Google maps give the correct address which is about 2miles NW of the intersection of 26/28). The house is 7 minutes from both downtown Cooperstown and Dreams Park.
The pool is clean and the yard is spacious. I would greatly recommend this house or sharing it with another family in lieu of a smaller older home. It has two masters with three other bedrooms and two baths.
The house contains pretty much everything and anything else can be bought at the Price Chopper 4 miles away.
Great House...as advertised!!
Went to Cooperstown for a reunion of college buddies who love baseball. This house was perfect. Everything in the description was spot on! All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean. The beds were comfortable. We made good use of the kitchen and gas grill. Best part was hanging out at the firepit (bring wood). The location was great, not too far from Central Cooperstown. Book it!!!
While you are in Cooperstown be sure to visit the Baseball Hall Of Fame, the Farmer's Museum, Fenimore House Art Museum and the Fly Creek Cider Mill. Also close by is the Glimmerglass Opera House and Glimmerglass Lake State Park.
