Property description

You won’t want to miss a single Otsego Lake sunrise from this vantage point! Your two bedroom, top floor apartment offers commanding views of our local gem from the open-concept kitchen, living room and dining area as well as the huge deck!

Hot summer days are cooled by fresh lake breezes and an abundance of natural light permeates this nautically-themed space from its many windows and sliding doors.

The over-sized deck offers plenty of room for dining, sun-bathing, star-gazing, boat watching, reading, BBQing, etc. Most of your visit might just center on this very spot.

Your kitchen is fully stocked! You will have to shop for your family favorites, but we make every effort to have the basic provisions here for you.

Cable television and internet access are provided. There is also a DVD player, movies, games, books and more for your entertainment.

This apartment is designed for up to four guests. The master bedroom offers lake views, 2 dressers, a spacious closet and a comfy queen bed with tempurpedic mattress. The second bedroom has two pillow-top twin beds, small dresser, a closet and has been freshly renovated. There is one bathroom with a spacious shower and a large closet for your toiletries. Bed linens and bath towels are provided. Please bring your own beach towels.

We provide two off-street parking spaces located behind the property.

Please note: This property is located directly across West Lake Road from the waterfront. You will have to cross a narrow road to access the private waterfront. You will want to accompany small children.

Guests are free to enjoy the 50' of private waterfront and dock area as well as the side yard and parking area.

**IMPORTANT** This property accommodates a maximum of 4 guests due to fire code and septic regulations. More than this number will result in an immediate cancellation of our agreement and your reservation, and you will forfeit your full deposit. Children are considered guests, so please include them in your count.
* When booking, please understand that you have a neighbor below you, therefore, we seek quiet guests. We are happy to accommodate well-behaved children. Please use discretion in determining whether or not this is the ideal place for your family. Families with young children may find this property is not suitable, as the house is not child-proof, and has a number of features that may not provide for their optimal safety. Feel free to contact me for further information regarding suitability.
*House Rules:
*No house parties. No guests, outside of originally registered guests, are permitted on the premises.
*No smoking
*No pets
*As this is a quiet residential home, please keep noise levels reasonable.

Car: Necessary

We are located 5.7 miles north of the village of Cooperstown. It is a lovely lakeside drive the full distance.

We are a 15 - 20 minute drive to Dreams Park fields.

I live on premises so you will see me from time to time. In the summer months Mark, the very kind owner will also be around. I'll greet you, give you general information and then let you have your privacy.

The neighborhood has a laid back lake appeal and primarily consists of privately owned properties. It is peaceful around here and the neighbors are lovely! Busy holidays bring more traffic than usual through West Lake Road, but aside from boats cruising the lake, and resounding laughter of fun-filled summer days, it is pretty tame.

A car is going to be important as you are 5.7 miles from town. Once you get within a mile of Cooperstown, you can park just before the Fenimore Art Museum in the 'Cooperstown Trolley' parking lot. From there you can take the trolley into town as parking can be hard to find, and is fee-based.


Manager info

About: Hi, I'm Michele, I am the property manager and rental agent for Sunrise Splendor. I also live downstairs and am available to help out when needed. Cooperstown is a beautiful place to visit, work and live. I've spent most of my summers here, and now reside here year 'round. Over time I have come to know some of the area's best kept secrets. I hope you reach out to me for ideas and recommendations during your stay. There is a hospitality link that VRBO allows owners/managers to create for their guests. When you receive this link upon booking, I highly recommend perusing it for my personal, local favorites. If you are not a techy person, that's okay! We can chat about it when you arrive. I love sharing my love for the area with guests, so please don't be shy!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Otsego Lake is lovely. I adore every bit of its shoreline. This spot in particular is among my favorites as it not only provides stunning views of the lake, but also of Sleeping Lion Mountain at the North end. It is only from this vantage point that you can appreciate the where its name is derived from. As an early riser, nothing is prettier than the sun cresting over the mountains and shimmering on the water. You are in the perfect spot for this pleasing view. At day's end, when the sun sets behind us, we have the most beautiful skies! The pinks and purple hues reflect off the clouds and the mountains across the lake, and simply glow upon the water. Truly a gift to live here!
