Hi, my name is Matthew. I want you to be aware of the location you are renting. Location, Location, Location my Mom always said, and she is 110% right. Our location is ideal, and the house rocks as a bonus. I am a travel expert, and you can call/email me. I will give you the lay of the land. You don't have to rent my house, but you probably will. lol. I know the weight on your shoulders; renting for your family/group of people for 8 days. Trust me, you will be praised by renting this house/property. Ask me any questions. -- I only rent to one family/group per week (no one else is using the house/property...I want to make sure you understand that...You are the only people staying on the property:), and you can take 4-7 Bedrooms, 4.5 Full Bathrooms, and sleeps up to 17 in real beds/bedrooms. Let me know what you are looking for as far as group size. (I added another wing on to the house in 2017 with 3 beds and 1.5 bathroom I can open up the wing to expand it to 5, 6, and 7 bedrooms. Only for you!) Send me a message, and I will call/email you back immediately. The house was renovated in 2017. (I am a General Contractor/Designer & Jim is a plumber/electrician. This is our baby, so we take extra special care/thought to it. For example, this house is NOT your regular rental-house, we need to house a lot of people that have never lived here before, so they can easily enjoy themselves, worry free. Not many houses think about having 3 hot-water heaters, USB plugs in every bedroom/kitchen, nightlights in every hallway/kitchen/bathroom, motion lights outside, high-quality linens, well stocked kitchen, stocked wood for fire-pit, and very well maintained house.
The house is on 14 private acres with a new pool and deck. The location of the property is great; I don't have neighbors on top of me, so you won't be bothered by other neighbors, and you can enjoy your privacy and have fun. We have tons of outdoor seating around the fire-pit (we provide unlimited wood), as well as seating outside around 2 tables for eating. We have a number of fun outdoor games like Bag-O, Laddrr-Ball, and many more. Plus, you can shoot a game of "horse" with the basketball hoop. If relaxing is what you need, then the pool and zero - gravity chairs might be just for you. The pool has a high-quality, solar cover to keep the pool water an enjoyable temperature that we put on a roller-system, so it's easy to put on/off in 1-2 minutes, and out of the way. Easy-Peazy. In 2017, we finished redoing the hardwood floors, painting the inside of the entire house, renovate the kitchen and bathrooms, and put a new roof on. The house has air conditioning, NOT just the bedrooms like some. The families that have rented from me have enjoyed the house, and All rated their stay here as 5 Stars (Please, read our reviews.) We have taken great pride in making every families experience as positive as we can. I will tell you places to go, things to do, and places to eat that most people don't experience. I have worked on well over 100 of rentals in the area, and I know mine is; solid, clean, functions very well, in a great location. The way the house is laid-out and flows is great for a fun, weekly rental, that can handle many people/multiple families, and you don't feel like you are on top of one another the entire time. The house has many sizable rooms, with a big eat-in kitchen/large family room/relaxing and bright sun-porch, and a living room...all with TV's. All of the rooms have a good amount of windows looking out to the beautiful property. There are plenty of parking spaces, and easy to get access to the house. I live on a peaceful, beautiful, private 14 acre piece of land, about 6 minutes from Cooperstown, Otsego Lake, Glimmerglass Opera House, LeatherStocking Golf Course, The Farmer's Museum, and so much more. The house is an easy 12 minute drive from the Dream's Park. It's a very convenient, straight drive to both points of interest (Cooperstown and the Dream's Park.) Trust me, you don't want to rent on Rt 28, it's so close to the Dreams Park noise, traffic, the nightly bright lights, nor being on the 55mph highly trafficed road to the Dreams Park that runs from Cooperstown to Oneonta (Rt 28). My house has 5-7 good-sized Bedrooms (you tell me how many you need, but the others will NOT be rented to ANYONE else.) with closets, dressers, nightstands and lamps with built in USB ports to charge your phones in every bedroom, 4.5 New Full Baths, and sleeps 17 people in beds with high-quality linens (no pull-out sofa's in this house.) It has plenty of room on the inside of the house, as well as the beautiful lawn to BBQ on the gas grill, relax, play horse shoes, badminton, Bag-O, sit around on the Adirondack chairs, hikes in the trials, run, walk, bike on the quite roads, or take a morning stroll. There is a Ranch 3 minutes away where you can go horseback riding. Some other great things nearby are; Fly Creek Cider Mill is 2 minutes down the road, a must go see/experience, where you can eat at their outdoor restaurant for lunch and/or dinner, listen to live music, feed the ducks, cheeses in their one-of-a-kind, old-fashioned Country Store and a Water-Powered Cider Mill, do a tasting of their cider at their cider-tasting station (21+ only), or go for a burger and ice-cream cone at their restaurant. Don't miss out on their Apple Pie. About 3 minutes away is a winery that has daily tasting as well. And, there is a Country Market/deli 3 minutes down the road for morning coffee, donuts, egg sandwiches, and other good stuff one might need at the last minute. There are a couple good places to eat within 3-5 minutes of my house, and one with an arcade, pool table, air-hockey, and much more. Cooperstown area is a very special place to visit with lots to do. I will email you my 5-Generations worth of local knowledge on where to go, things to see, and what to do, in and around Cooperstown, NY. This will be a once in a lifetime trip, and I hope you get the opportunity to make the most of it. I'll do everything I can to help make it that way, including making sure this house is as solid of a place it can be for you, your family, and your friends. You will have my cell phone if you have any questions 24/7. Obviously, there will be no issues with plumbing, or electric. I want you to enjoy yourselves, and not worry about the place you are calling home for 8 days. Basically, there are two large bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen bed, and one set of bunk-beds. We have another wing upstairs with 3 more bedrooms as well, if you want that open, each with a queen bed (note: if you want the additional rooms/bath, there is an additional charge.) On the main level, there is a large eat-in kitchen, two other good sized bedrooms, each with queen beds on this floor, there is an awesome, large sun-room with windows on all three sides, a large family room, washer/dryer ares, and a living-room...all common rooms have a flat-screen TV. We have an echo-plus in the kitchen for music. There is air-conditioning throughout the house, NOT just the bedrooms like some places. There is an outside deck with a large gas grill for easy access to the kitchen, and a places outside to sit, relax, and enjoy your time sitting around, sharing good conversations, under the bright stars. Ask any questions you'd like, and/or we can talk on the phone as well. -- Here are some other things you might want to know; kitchen appliances are all new in 2017. I have a Washer/Dryer, A/C, Dishwasher, Coffee Maker and Keureg, Internet/wifi, Cable TV with Flat screen TVs, all high-end Linens bought in 2017, and motion lights, so when you come home at night, you know where you are going, along with flush-mounted, automatic night-lights in the hallways, bathrooms, and kitchen. Best of Luck with your vacation. I hope you enjoy it to the fullest. We are here to help make that happen.
2017, we added more sq.ft. to the house, gaining an additional 2 bedrooms to this spacious house. It will only be available to you, and no other renter. It's all the same house, not chopped up, and the flow is great. The bedrooms are not on top of one another, and the house is spacious. Basically, you tell me if you need a 6th, or 7th bedroom. I can open the new section to you and your family for an added cost. The layout of this house is great for multiple families, bringing in-laws, friends, aunts/uncles, grandparents....we have plenty of well laid-out space, with lots of good sized, different rooms for people to spend time in, so you won't feel like you are on top of one another. We WILL NOT RENT ANYONE else the house/rooms while you are here, the entire place is yours. #CarpeDiem
