Was at the Otesaga Hotel for a bankers meeting. Food and service were both excellent. Staff was great. They did such a wonderful job with the food service and so forth. Meeting rooms were very nice also.

The room and its appointments were excellent; plenty of light for reading. The bathroom was clean and spacious We had one of the smallest rooms in the hotel, over the loading dock, so basically no view at all. All the common rooms (living room, library, outside porch/veranda) were oriented toward the lawn and lake. The Fire Bar is terrific. Delicious... More

Just returned from another visit to The Otesaga....thankfully nothing has changed, still "like dying and going to heaven"...and well worth every penny. The hotel and grounds are impeccable and have an air of peace and serenity. All the employees, from the GM onward, invariably have smiles on their faces and a ready and heartfelt "good morning/afternoon/evening" wish for you. Dining... More

First time at the restaurant. We had an outside table with a spectacular view of the lake. The food was very good with unique tastes. Service was excellent. Only problem we went on a Monday and after a busy weekend several of their specialties were unavailable.

Beautiful setting on the lake, but hotel service was mediocre at best. Dinning quality was especially disappointing. My in-room service breakfast was 20 min late, which is more than an inconvenience when you are trying to catch a flight. Most importantly, when I call to inquire regarding the status of my breakfast, I got little in a way of update... More

The Otesaga is a destination hotel in and of itself. It sits right on the lake with the rooms, restaurants and balconies all taking advantage of the beautiful views. The restaurants offer wonderful fare, no matter the time of day. And it is just a few minutes walk to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Best of all, the level of... More

The setting is beautiful, the hotel is historic, but what impressed us the most was that the staff was so well-trained…so friendly, but efficient. We truly enjoyed our stay. The grounds are impeccable and there is so much to do. What a family-friendly place. Although it was just the two of us on this trip, we are thinking we may... More

We are avid TripAdvisor followers, so we followed the reviews and positive comments about the Otesaga Resort. We were totally surprised with this gem on the lake. Peaceful, bucolic setting, A+ service, clean, & fabulous outdoor seating along the lake and on the patio & veranda! A perfect place to stay, dine, golf, and tour the Baseball Hall of Fame... More

After several times staying here I'm finally reviewing... This place is unreal. Beautiful old historic hotel with amazing views. Right in the heart of Cooperstown. Walk to everything. Across the street from the farmers museum and many activities offered. Golf, boating, amazing food and drinks in several bars. The best is just sitting on the large porch overlooking the lake...
