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

Bachelor's weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Came here with 11 friends on on a bachelor's weekend away. Was blown away. The place is absolutely beautiful. Huge house, ton of space, amazing kitchen and appliances. The kitchen is well equipped as well. The basement bar was an awesome place to hang out, so was the deck and the fire pit. We couldn't come up with a reason to leave!

Since we went so late in the season, the weather wasn't the warmest for spending a lot of time in the cold lake. But the dock and the boathouse were great for us to sit out by the water and enjoy the view.

A fair warning, cell reception is terrible and the WiFi was slightly unreliable. But the point in staying someplace like this is to get away from all that stuff anyway. Also, I should mention Bill was very easy to get a hold of and was available to answer any and all questions we had for him. I would highly recommend staying here to enjoy the beautiful Cooperstown area. Snug Harbor is the place to be!

Owner's Response: Hi Joseph, A quick note to thank you for your kind words regarding your Cooperstown stay. The lakeside boathouse is a cool place to spend time...its proximity to the water and the protection it provides from any bad weather allows visitors a unique and up close lakefront experience. Perhaps consider a summer visit to really enjoy the lake!

Amazing, fun, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. About a dozen of us went up for a low key bachelor party and had an amazing time. The house was big, gorgeous, and full of everything needed to have an enjoyable time. Pinball ball machine, bar, fishing rods, fire pit, aqua trampoline. Such a great time we're thinking about doing it every year. Highly recommend it.

Wonderful property!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home on the lake! It is absolutely beautiful. Quiet and peaceful but Cooperstown is just a ten minute drive away. House is so well appointed. I have rented many homes and never had a home have everything you could possibly need. Bill was helpful in every way and responded quickly to my many emails with all my questions. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Ter, Thanks for your kind words. The home is really in a great location...with great water views and great lake frontage, even a great 10 minute ride along the edge of the lake to Cooperstown! Come back soon!

Snug Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house - really beautiful, nicely decorated, spacious, amazing kitchen. We really loved it. The lake and dock are amazing, and Bill Miller was both responsive and helpful with any questions or issues we had. Note that the house is not directly on the lake - it is across the road and up the steps - two minutes to walk - but nevertheless across the road. Again, we loved it and would highly recommend it.

Snug Harbor

Snug Harbor is great get away location to Cooperstown. Great location: Right off Otsego lake,12 minutes from downtown, and 18 minutes from fields. The place was very clean and a great family atmosphere. I would highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Snug Harbor is really a convenient location...a beautiful 8 minute drive along the edge of the lake to Cooperstown. And with its own private lake frontage, dock and huge floating trampoline, a lot of guests choose to simply spend their time right at the lake!! Thanks for your kind words!!
