Very nice accomodations, nice property, nice assortment of boats for use, lots of rock bass

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen has everything you need including a toaster oven and a 4 burner stovetop. The queen bed has a soft pillow top mattress which sags in the middle. You need to find your own wood for the fire pit. Food is provided so you can make s'mores in the fire pit. I caught one 12 inch smallmouth bass and over 20 rock bass. I caught most of the fish using a two person paddle boat. The best time to fish is before sunset along the side of boat docks. There are row boats, paddle boats, and kayaks available for use. The shower is very small.

Beautiful , well maintained, nice yard,

  • 4 of 5

Ken takes care and fixed the property up really nice. Nice lawn and landscaping makes everything easy on the eyes. The cabin comes with all the essentials for an outdoors stay at the lake. Each cabin has plenty of space on the property, with bbq grill, tables , chairs, and fire pit. Otsego Lake is absolutely beautiful. Ken made his home very welcoming . Will definitely return.

Great cabin stay experience

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a great alternative to a hotel room. It allowed for plenty of room for us and visitors. Owner left great first impression and didn't hesitate to make our stay care free. We are very appreciative of our treatment and would definitely stay again.
