Our family all met there for our nieces wedding in February. The night before we were treated to a prime rib dinner, yorkshire pudding and wonderful wine. The place was grand and wandered around for several hours before the meal. The meal was amazing, they have a very talented chef. After dinner we headed to another room for a dessert... More

This was our 5th trip to Cooperstown, NY dating back to October, 1983 when I proposed to my wife at the Otesaga Resort Hotel (we've stayed here 4 times and once at their smaller, sister property, the Cooper Inn). Cooperstown is an unspoiled, idyllic little hamlet in upstate New York with no fast food restaurants or chain retail stores, only... More

Our family gathering was a great success. With a private dining room and great support from event services, we had a fantastic evening with everything done to our specifications. The dancing after dinner in the Templeton lounge was a good way to shake down dinner and the children had a ball on the dance floor. You need to go there... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Otesaga on two separate occasions this summer while our son was playing in the week-long Cooperstown Dreams Park tournaments. The decor is old-world and lovely, and the service was friendly and gracious. I still dream about sitting out on the porch having breakfast or sipping drinks in the wooden... More

Our hotel room was beautiful with a fantastic view of Otsego lake... we had such a great time we decided to stay an extra night. The hotel is also in a lovely town with the added benefit of being home to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

This beautiful period hotel sits right on the lake, wonderful period ambience, fantastic experience! We went to a wedding here last weekend and never felt anything except relaxed! I have stayed here once before and will definitely again. Loved the little pub downstairs with music until the wee hours. Oh! The food was great also, especially the apps.
