The Otesaga Resort Hotel was very nice! The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The meeting/conference rooms were comfortable . The organized activities were well received by all! The food was excellent from start to finish! I hope to be able to get back to the Otesaga soon! Thanks for a great weekend!

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. The little touches (bottled water replenished each night, great free wifi) along with the impeccable larger details (concierge (Donald) getting us reservations in a... More

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.

I stayed at the Otesaga after proposing to my girlfriend. We had arrived late, after 8PM and check in was pretty quick and painless. We went to the restaurant to eat and they let us sit down for dinner even though the restaurant was closing shortly. The food was good; breakfast was nice each day. The grounds and the building...
