About Pamela Miller

John and Pam have been Otsego County residents for 40 + years and have been a big part of the hospitality industry for much of that time. They love this area and are happy to share any information that you might require and enjoy conversation before you arrive or during your stay to make your visit perfect. Twin Pines Cottage is a duplex cottage, 2 side by side units. They have been rented separately for 30 years, sometimes having one family rent both sides. The Cooperstown family home was sold the fall of "15 and the Millers will now summer in the three bedroom unit, a 30 year dream. Every day on the lake. GREAT!!

Pamela Miller purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Pamela Miller chose Central Leatherstocking

Cooperstown Twin Pines Cottage is a part of the Association of Hyde Bay Colony, located on County Route 31, 7 miles from the Village of Cooperstown. It is on the East side of the lake, where the sunsets are spectacular. This property (12 acres, with 650 feet of waterfront) was developed as "Rathbuns," in the 1920's. The Rathbun family developed this property as a fishing resort, over the years it developed into a family destination. When the Rathbuns decided it was time to retire, one of our realtors suggested looking into an association possibility. That is what we are! The John and I felt we were the luckiest people in the world to own a piece of this fabulous property. Now it is our time to enjoy the lake and share a part with others that want a special family get away. Hyde Bay Association continues these traditions. All of the cottages and homes on the property are individually owned and managed, with reasonable rules & regulations which are included in rental packet. These rules are only put in place for community respect and each family's enjoyment.

What makes this cottage unique

Hyde Bay Colony's property is bordered by New York State park Glimmerglass. We are in a bay, at the end of Otsego Lake. Our waterfront is private, quiet, and boat friendly. We offer a canoe, two kayaks, life jackets, swimming dock with a float, fishing on the boat dock, sand and toys on he waterfront and a community beach-front fire pit (with firewood provided). Twin Pines cottage is well equipped with movies, games, puzzles, BBQ gas grill, and picnic table. If you desire to bring your boat, you must make arrangements before you arrive as we do have size regulations and only one slip allowed for our cottage.

Child-friendly, family friendly - LOVED the firepit

  • 5 of 5

Loved the stay at this lake. The lake is HUGE and chilly and very refreshing after long-hot days on the baseball field with the kiddos. We were there for Dreams Park and it would have been a much longer week without this fabulous, low-key, chill-out, family-friendly cottage. LOVED John and Pam. Loved the fishing and the kayaks and the firepit was our fav. We sat from sunset until the fire was gone every night all week long - NO RAIN - amazing stay

This fabulous lake and town tugs my heat strings every year. Sometimes we can't make it, Bit when we do it's peaceful and beautiful. The camp offers outdoorsy activities to fill you bucket list and Cooperstown is a gem like no other. A very special place indeed.

Family of four stayed in the one bedroom side - HEAVENLY vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have a ginger and we had a special sandbox on the hill for him to play in to stay out of the noon sun. How lovely. In the evening the kids played in the sand at the beach while we sat in great comfy Adirondack chairs watching the sun go down - BREATHTAKING! and eating s'mores over the fire. We enjoyed our end-of-the-season stay so much, we asked the owners if we could stay on longer. Because it was the end of the season, both sides were empty and we moved over to the three bedroom for 4 more nights. ROMANCE and separate bedrooms with little kids - what an unexpected treat. Loved Loved LOVED the owners Pam and John. Would highly recommend this place, even without the extra day's stay. Never needed heat/AC and the kitchen was very well equipped with equipment and dishes. Loved the games and movies, too (did rain 2 nights) - there were even books for the littles. All-in-all a flipping PERFECT vacation

Family Traditions - so many memories made at the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 couples and children) rent both sides, every Labor Day week. John and Pam always have a conversation with us, beforehand, and leave the place spotless with all beds made and fresh thick towels hung. The kitchen has everything we need (pots pans, dishes, silver, knives, even a bit of dish soap). We love the lake: sand toys for the kids, kayaks, canoe (even safety-approved life vests), community beach-front fire pit, and fabulous sunsets. We always come home refreshed! Every night we laugh and laugh, playing cards and games. This is a big part of memories and tradition for our family.
