Just spent 4 days here for a conference and everything was wonderful.

My wife, son, and I had a wonderful stay at the Otesaga Hotel in early October. It is a magnificent building, reminiscent of days gone by. One arrives to the entrance which is flanked by broad columns via a sweeping driveway through a park-like lawn with large trees. We were greeted immediately by a bellman who took our luggage and...

We were traveling with a tour company this time. We arrived with soaking rains and were not allowed to park near an easily accessible entrance. We didn't find the staff to be very friendly. However the waitstaff in the main dining room were prompt, courteous and friendly. We have a lovely three room suite with vaulted ceilings. The living room... More

The hotel is absolutely beautiful on a picturesque lake. We had a wonderful time siting by the fire pit drinking a glass of wine and walking around the grounds. The breakfast was fantastic and provided us a great jump start to our day. We enjoyed walking through the town and would recommend staying here. Especially this time of year.

From the moment we pulled on to the grounds I continued to be pleasantly surprised at the level of service and beauty of the resort. There is an understated elegance where you feel welcomed and appreciated.

Fabulous grand old hotel. We actually intending a trip to Cooperstown, but were depositing a child at school and finding it very difficult to get lodging near campus. The area around Hamilton is full of dubious B&Bs and a single hotel in town that is always full, so I was delighted to be 45 minutes away at this gorgeous resort... More

Stayed at this resort the second week of October. Resort is beautiful with great views of the lake. Right next to the golf course. The grounds are very nice and it is walking distance to town. The food at the restaurant is very good.
