Great location and clean comfortable cottages. Would recommend to families and couples alike!

  • 5 of 5

You will have a hard time finding individuals who take pride in ownership like this couple! They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable from calling and offering to allow us to come early to enjoy the beautiful day, to the complimentary smores basket on the table. Cabin 4 felt like it was brand new and they spared no expense from the knotty pine ceilings throughout, right down to the slow close hinges on the cupboard doors, which in 700+ sq ft was very much appreciated. The kayaks, and paddle boats were definitely a bonus for my 3 boys. They even apologized for the Geese that were on the beach, which they have no control over, but shows their commitment to their guests! The only complaint was 3 days of rain, but enjoyed the view!

Wonderful cabins and property

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent place to stay. The cabins along with the property were well kept and relaxing. Ken and Brenda were there to meet us. We had a wonderful time fishing from the dock and the rowboats. Enjoyed taking the kayaks out on the lake. Will keep this place in mind the next time that we are looking to stay in the area. You have your own fire pit. There was also a community fire pit down by the lake to meet the other guests on the property.

Fantastic property and cabins

  • 5 of 5

The Alpine Beach property is fantastic. My family and I stayed in cabin 4, which is brand new and has everything you need for a vacation. The beach and included "toys" (kayaks, paddle boats, row boat) were in great shape and allowed our kids to enjoy the lake. Owners Ken and Brenda are friendly and always available to answer a question. They even invited my family to take a ride on their boat around Otsego Lake. Ultimately, it was a great vacation and I would recommend the Alpine Beach to anyone...
