The hotel is about 10 minutes from Main St. in Cooperstown (everything in Cooperstown is on Main St.). The Yellow Cooperstown trolley stop (parking lot) is about 5 minutes away from the hotel. I had a lake view room (not a cottage). The room was spacious although it could use a little more lighting. The lighting in the bathroom was yellow--so it wasn't the brightest. The bed was very firm and there were no outlets near the night stand so we had to charge electronics across the room where the outlets were. The windows of the room open so it was nice to have the option for fresh air in the room rather than using air conditioning. The air conditioning works fine though.
The walk from the room to the lake/beach is slightly steep. There's a set of steps or you can take the road down (the road loops around the cottages, it's very quiet and safe). The beach is very small and the docks are private so you can't walk out on them. There are two gazebos on the beach that have picnic tables and there a few beach chairs in the sand. There is a port-a-potty near the beach.
Off of the check out area, there is a lounging area that includes a microwave, sofa, tables, etc. and board games and puzzles. Outside of this room is a deck that has tables and chairs and overlooks the lake.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.
