Our beachfront is great for the little ones, as the shoreline is very gradual. We have many sand toys for use by our guests. The good swimmers have a float to swim to and jump off and race back to the dock. The children ( and adults) can fish off our shoreline or boat dock. There is a nice assortment of fish in Otsego Lake....moreless

About the owner: 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!!
Why the Owner Chose Cooperstown, NY, USA:
Cooperstown Twin Pines Cottage is a part of the Association of Hyde Bay Colony, located on County Route 31, 7 miles from Cooperstown. It is on the East side of Otsego 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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
