About the Property

4 bedrooms in a large two story open planned house with an amazing porch.

This is our vacation home as well - it is well equipped for us to spend a few weeks each year with as many as 2 additional families. It has enough beds to sleep 8-9 folks comfortably with three bathrooms, laundry, and a large kitchen to make you feel as comfortable as we do. The view must be seen to be believed as it is one of the best in the area. There is a fire pit out back to enjoy toasting marshmallows as the sun sets and the air cools to let the stars out.

Our home is one of two on top of the hill providing ample privacy and amazing views. Walking the surrounding roads is wonderful. The house is also only 10 miles from Dreams Park for summer tournaments or 5 miles from the Baseball Hall of Fame. Our stays never miss: Coffee from the Stagecoach Café, breakfast from The Doubleday Café, Dinner from Alex and Ika, and Cider from the Fly Creek Cider Mill. The whole family can spend hours at the Farmer's Museum, and the local Farmer's Market is amazing. Plan a longer trip to get out to the Brewery Ommegang for some amazing Belgian Ales and delicious food at their new restaurant. Many other adventures are to be found - check the local schedule to see what concert you can catch or take the day and get on the lake on a rented boat.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a family of 5 (three young ones) that lives in queens that needs to be away from NYC as often as possible. This is my children's favorite place in the world right now - the house, the hill it is on, the hiking, small town friendliness, and other adventures make this their top pick for places to go as a family. So we do - as often as possible we take the house for ourselves....

Why the Owner Chose Cooperstown, NY, USA:
The view took our breath away initially - then the house itself won us over. It is set up to enjoy but feel elegant. It is spacious and open and invites conversation with friends and long slow meals - it is country living done right and we adore it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We came to Cooperstown when my first was an infant and fell in love with the town - once we realized how many things there were to enjoy in the area we decided to find a place for ourselves. We cannot fully utilize the property - so renting it when we are not there makes great sense. We have professional cleaners turn the house around in about 5 hours every Friday to insure that you get a pristine property to enjoy with your family.
