Perfect spot for a quick overnight stay. Beautiful view of lake Otsego. The rooms are small and dated but clean. The check in was easy and quick. The location to Cooperstown was perfect. The lake was very clean and refreshing.

We were very happy with our stay here. This is a small (only 36 units) but neat, clean, and quiet We were on the upper floor with a porch that had a great view of the Otsego Lake. The employees were very friendly and even recommended a place for breakfast the next morning, that was a wonderful place to eat.... More

We recently stopped in Cooperstown for a quick stop on our way to Niagara Falls. We needed a place to stay for the night that wasn't too expensive. We found many of the Inns and B & B's in town were quite pricey, and not really the environment we were looking for with older kids (21 & 13). The Lake... More

This is a neutral review. While the room was a little bit on the shabby side, the beds were nonetheless comfortable. We did not have a "Lake View" from out room, but a very short walk across the road is a private little dock and beach area. This was lovely, We sat out until nightfall, enjoying the lake and views.... More

Jonathan, Thank you for your feedback. We need your comments so we can best serve all our guests. I feel like we earned a C plus. We do have some very good strong points and a few weaker ones. Admittedly it is not best if you need to stay in the room for a large portion of the day as... More

It is an old motel, but they do a good job of keeping it clean. The location is on the lake, and is about 6 miles north of downtown. The views are something. My only complaints involved limited Wi-Fi inside the room and a recliner that was broken. I would go back again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I stayed at this gem for a local wedding. It is 6 miles north of downtown Cooperstown on Rt 20. The location is ideal- close enough to get to the center of town in 10 minutes but far enough way to be quiet. The staff is very friendly and treats you like family from the first greeting.... More

We got on trip advisor to find a place traveling from Vermont for the night. Family owned and operated. Very friendly, clean and fabulous views of Lake Otsego. Nothing fancy but clean and quiet. 6 miles from Cooperstown. Location was perfect for traveling into Cooperstown.

We stayed for one night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We didn't pack a bowl for our breakfast and we were given clean ones to use. The room was clean and quiet. An extra bonus was a babbling brook outside our window that lulled us to sleep. There are some docks across the street on the clean lake.... More
