This was the best house tour I've been on. A 19th Century grand mansion sits above Otsego Lake. A house fallen on hard times is being restored by a devoted group. The tour was informed and fun.

This mansion sits at the head of Otsego Lake. It is slowly being brought back from a state of disrepair and is an interesting window into the life of the family. Tour guide was very knowledgable.

Excellent tour guide of an historic grade home. Well maintained but still need some work. Guided tours and a good supplement to the other area museums.

Excellent ghost tour with a wonderful narrator! Get a spot on the tour before it's too late. Lite refreshments are served in the admin as you wait to be led into the grounds and into the mansion by a period-dressed tour guide. With a flair...More

We visited Cooperstown and stopped in to see Hyde Hall. The hall has spectacular views of Ostego Lake and the tour was interesting. For history buffs it is a worthwhile look into the past.
