We have been going to the Lake House for years. The first time we went, we fell in love with the hotel itself. It is so welcoming with the wonderful antiques, lighting, hardwood floors, clean rooms, great food and the very friendly staff. We always feel so welcome and that they are actually happy to see us. We are happy... More

My Wife and I recently enjoyed a cozy "International Night" dinner at The Lake House and we were very well cared for. Driving up to The Lake House was very picturesque and upon entering felt the rich character of it's history....A fireplace in the corner of the dining area lends a touch of romance.

Very well run hotel by attentive staff. Good hardworking team that kept everything running smoothly and also served up excellent free breakfast. The price of the room was under 100.00. You can't beat that. I do recommend this hotel.

I was traveling last summer and had come across pictures of a nice place called the lake house. The pictures were NOTHING like what the place was like....curtains that did not cover the windows, filthy shower curtain, towels that were older than my grandmother, a door that led to a hallway/entryway that was nearly 3" short, a staff that was...

As an owner, feedback is always important but it needs to be truthful. We don't have carpeting- we have hardwood floors; last year we replaced all of our doors with new six panel pine doors and all meet the floor, curtains do cover the windows unless someone wants to leave them open to enjoy the view of the lake and...

Great clean hotel, close to Cooperstown, Nice location 10 minute drive to baseball hall. Easy highway access. Breakfast was great and staff was really nice. The Lake House was located within a short diving distance to the Hall of Fame. There are some restaurants nearby and we had a great time. The suite size room was good, especially when traveling...

“Great Hotel” This is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Attention to detail is amazing in every aspect- food, service,staff, etc. Breakfast buffet was just right. Our room was clean, comfortable and well appointed. It had classic old furniture with a comfortable bed, etc. but also a modern bathroom, a strong signaled WiFi and a flat screen... More

Thanks for your comments- it's true we are close to the Hall of Fame and Cooperstown. We work very hard to make our guests comfortable and happy. Induction Weekend is a busy time in the summer but the area is full of charm anytime of the year. We look forward to reserving a room for you Jeter's year. More
